Improved heal

Was wondering If (Improved healing v) works with this spell. I have tested it with the orbs from soul orb spell and it does not work. Thx in advance :)

Healing focus should work on this. It won't work on a Soul Orb because technically that's a clicky item.

Soul orbs crit heal with use of the theft of life aa. Since it gives your life taps a chance to provide an exceptional amount of healing.

hehe i bought this spell for 500p.

i really look forward to this spell. right now only way to heal your pet is sharing hp, this will help huge. Will also alot help when grouped with lower lvl necs say 50-60, because they are unable to cast decent heal on their pet, and weak lvl 53/56pets have no hp at all. This spell can target other undead pets, not just your own. You can heal other nec/sk pets, or charmed undead mobs. I can think of alot of uses for this, with this you could even help lower lvl nec friend lvl. Let his pet tank, and heal it with this. i think i will always have this on spellbar, you also have to think about it saving some mana from cleric, because he wont have to heal your pet anymore, just everyone else.

Not true there is a AA heal for 59. only able to use it every 39 minutes. Though mostly it is healing with your own life and thats why we have a healing dots. Even in Arch Lich form without regen you can still heal two targets from your own life and not drop at all.

Not the case any longer, with the intro of the Lvl61, DoN spell, Soul Orb. As you are now aware of the Soul Orb is a DD of 850 which in turn produces the Soul Orb, a NO DROP, NO TRADE, NO RENT 850HP clicky heal that is stackable and open targetable, not just you and not just your pet. Probably the top 5 most usable utility spell Necs get. And as of lvl 61 THE BEST heal nec's get for pet. It does have a 30sec recast delay timer, which oddly enough, can be a 30sec lifetime when you need to get that little heal off before the Healer's CH hits the tank, etc.

Thanks for all the info on the spell, yet no one has yet to reply to the original question of whether this is a drop a quest or by spectral parchment. 64 is around the corner and I'd really like to know because I haven't seen it up in the bazaar. =)

Pet Heal

I am glad that this spell is here, but I wish it had been more along the BST spell and been 2100 hps or so. It still is far from useless since it will give you allot more run for the money in places like chardok, veksar, etc.. where the pet has to hold up better than your shadowbond can do to keep up.

As most of you necros already do or know, the way to use it is in conjunction with spells like: cast Saryn's Kiss on the mob, then cast shadowbond + Touch of Death on pet as he needs the heals. So he is getting double the healing and you are lifetapping as you need it yourself.

Another nice thing about this is that since it can be cast on other necro pets, you can form a group of all necros if you wanted to and have a total combined healing power for your pets of 6000 hps every 7 seconds. Healing rotation anyone? /grin

Just a note

Just a small note. Lot of you may know this already but....

You can heal other undead pets with this, outside of your own.
Where is it?

A nice spell addition with counter as well =) but useless really unless u maxed crit AA..

PoP mobs hit for 600+ and dual hit etc.. LoZ has what ? 4.5k hp ? 1k heal and 4.5secs cast time aint gonna help much ..

My suggestion is that you just pull off pet and allow tank to gain aggro back, FD pet if tank dead (if u have skill), cast fear etc to gain aggro yourself if soloing or just run hehe..

Nice to see it there still, but its just another farming tool i think...

GL all..

P.S. castersrealm should get up to date hehe

It is very true that a 1k heal won't keep a pet alive in PoP zones, but you also need to consider that there are other exp zones at that level. I am actually rather fond of Veksar as a change of pace and a 1k heal is easily adequate in such places. The other problem comes from the fact that how often do people actually HEAL the pets? I've seen all too many occasions where the tank has died in a predominately caster group and the pet ended up tanking with the group wiping shortly thereafter because the healer couldn't adjust to the thought of healing the pet in time. But then again, I've seen a paladin that served as MT and primary healer in Halls of Honor too, so there are some pretty odd things at times too.

IMO, Veksar was built for necros. It is almost soley undead (goblins and golems excluded) and the mobs are dark blue to level 65 once you get partway in.

I prefer to use a Dire Charm pet in there and ToD is a great way to maintain him. For that matter... if it wasnt for ToD our pets would just about become useless for tanking into our 60's because the mobs are doing more than shadowbond can keep up with alone. Even slowed, mobs in Veksar would not be possible with Shadowbond alone. With ToD they are much easier. With DC they are MUCH easier still.

Yes, clerics (or other healers) who don't think about healing pets are useless. I was in an LDON group last night where the only tank died seconds after pulling the assassination target (which was throwing nukes and resisted slow).

The pets ended up tanking the entire fight, but never got a heal from the cleric. There's one cleric I won't be grouping with again...
Still in the game?
# Jan 29 2003 at 4:29 PM Rating: Decent
Is this spell still in the game? I thought it was removed in the second spell patch after PoP was released.
RE: Still in the game?
# Feb 16 2003 at 1:04 PM Rating: Decent
Yes its still in game, and is very nice to have
description is misleading
# Jan 06 2003 at 2:14 PM Rating: Decent
this isnt a detrimental spell. this a 1k pet only heal. very nice spell when your pet becomes the main tank, or when soloing and ol' ***** takes a few too many swings. it also negates disease based spells, so if your pet is slowed or has plague etc on it, it removes it in a few casts.

sidenote - the necro AA ability Theft of Life causes this spell to crit heal, as well as our AA ability Mend Companion. i have critted for over 4k with Mend, and have seen 2k crit heals with this spell. very nice indeed.
