IntroductionEdit

This is a comparison of most (if not all) healing spells of the four different healing classes. There are both values available for spells with and without talents. Each section is ended by a list of top healing spells in different categories.

Explanation of valuesEdit

Spell 
The name of the healing spell.
Healing 
The average amount of healing done by the healing spell.
Mana 
The mana cost of the spell
Cast time 
The amount of time it takes to cast a spell.
Duration 
The duration of Heal over Time type spells or a conservative guess for spells with multiple charges.
Scaling 
The percentage of bonus healing effects from gear the healing spell receives. See Spell power coefficient for a full list.
HPS 
Healing per second; the amount of healing the spell does over a period of one second.
HPM 
Healing per mana; the amount of healing this spell does per point of mana spent.
+x HPS 
The healing per second when you have a total of x bonus healing from gear and/or buffs.
+x HPM 
The healing per mana when you have a total of x bonus healing from gear and/or buffs.
SPS 
Scaling per second; a value that says something about how well the HPS of the spell improves with bonus healing effects. a value of 100% means that 3.5 bonus healing increases the HPS by 1.
+H/HPM 
Bonus healing per HPM; the amount of bonus healing needed in order to increase the HPM of the spell by 1.

AssumptionsEdit

  • Healing spells that heal the entire group, heal an average of 3 wounded units.
  • The healers have 300 intellect, 300 spirit and 5% base crit chance with spells. (edit: This assumption may result in bias because Paladin and Shaman healers have little use for Spirit and the spell crit chance of Paladin Healers is normally much higher.)
  • A bonus of 5% critical strike chance to healing spells results in an average of 2.5% more healing done.

Without talents Edit

  • Top HPM scaling spells

  • Note: The author only counts one jump of Prayer Of Mending, ProM can jump up to five times. Seems inconsistent compared to Shaman's chain heal where it is given credit for three.
