The druids' reverence for nature allows them to bestow wondrous gifts upon their allies.[1]

Healing Touch is a druid healing spell. It is the largest direct heal available to the class. It is costly but effective, making it good for delivering large amounts of healing to a target.

Notes

  • Healing Touch is available at level 78 for 60c.
  • High cost but equally high healing makes this a good spell to use on a target that's taking heavy damage but isn't in danger of dying during the long cast time, such as a tank.

Improvements

Talents

  • [Gift of Nature] increases the healing done by 25%.
  • [Living Seed] causes critical heals from Healing Touch to place a buff on the target, healing for 30% of the critical heal the next time the target takes damage.

Tips and Tactics

  • Using [Nature's Swiftness] with this spell results in a massive instant direct heal, which is very useful for emergency situations. Most druids have a macro that immediately casts Nature's Swiftness followed by Healing Touch. In this way you can take advantage of the spell's strength (a massive direct heal) while ignoring its weakness (long casting time).
  • If you think your target might die while you're casting this spell, cast [Regrowth] first to buy yourself a little time.
