'''Gift of the Naaru''' is a [[racial ability]] of the [[Exodar draenei|draenei]]. It heals a target over 15 seconds. The total amount healed depends on the character's level and is increased by either ~110% of the caster's [[attack power]] (22% per tick) or ~188.5% of the caster's [[spell power]] (~37.7% per tick), whichever bonus is higher.

== Talent improvement ==
 
Gift of the Naaru is mostly neglected by talents in all builds; the choices come down to [[threat]]-reduction and +healing. Since the ability is a [[HoT]] it cannot crit, and talents that would enhance crit are useless. It also costs no mana, so it can't cost any less to cast.

Gift of the Naaru is a racial ability of the draenei. It heals a target over 15 seconds for an amount equal to the caster's total health.

Notes

  • A blue sigil appears on the forehead of the caster for 15 seconds.
  • The amount healed is typically modest compared to most healer class abilities, but don't forget about it - this ability costs no resources, and does not trigger the global cooldown (though it is affected by it).

Tricks and Tactics

  • Gift of the Naaru is a great emergency button for draenei of any class. Since it has no cast time, it can be cast on the run or in a crunch. Priests, Paladins, or Shamans can drop Gift, and then follow it up with a fast heal or two to get back on their feet.
  • In raid/instance situations, when the entire group takes massive damage (such as Festergut's Pungent Blight), a draenei can pop this to alleviate some of the stress on the healers.
  • It can be cast on other players and although it is not the most powerful heal it can help when thrown into a regular healing rotation.
  • Because it doesn't trigger the GCD, tanks (or pretty much anybody) can drop it on themselves to help out with the healing, and not lose too much other work.
  • Shadow Priests can use this ability even with [Shadowform] on.

Patch changes

  • Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.0.6a (11-Feb-2011): There is a maximum limit to the amount healed when used on friendly NPCs with large amounts of health.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): The cast time has been removed; it is now an instant cast.
  • Bc icon / Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.2 (14-Oct-2008): The amount healed is increased based on the caster's spell power or attack power, whichever is higher. In addition, the ability is now immune against pushback effects.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.1.0 (22-May-2007): It now works with [Cosmic Infuser], but not with the shaman talent Healing Focus.
  • WoW Icon 16x16 / Bc icon Patch 2.0.1 (05-Dec-2006): Gift of the Naaru has been added to the game.
