      If you let someone cast this in any form of PvP they earned it.. takes forever.. so you either suck at punishing or they fought to time it

        So at 60 faith with yoshka chime, you could heal 247*5.5 = 1358.5, at a cost of 65 FP. This is way more economical than healing with estus. A +10 Ashen estus gives you 3 great heals which equals to more than 6 +10 estus flask (given that you have 200 FP bar of course)

          best no-bonfire run build: this spell (great heal) + estus flask+10 + estus ring + ashen estus ring + aldrich's sapphire + farron ring + simple gem infused parrying shield on the offhand (left hand) + simple gem infused [insert your favourite infuseable weapon] on the main hand (right hand) + Priest's Chime for the Gentle Prayer chant which costs low amount of FP and because of the low faith requirement from it

            I have only two miracles on my current faith build. Lightning weapon for glorious damage and Great heal for punishing dodgy mages who like to keep their distance for comfy spellcasting. Why on earth would slowass healyheal magic be forbidden when its perfectly ok to use homing hurtyhurt crystal magic? Y'all just mad for your own incompetence. Whiners must be the same people who keep complaining about parrying and declare every single weapon in the game OP.

              I wonder if the DS3 community is ever going to realize that there is literally no logical reason why a cleric can't use the heal spells in PvP? The running reason right now is literally just "no". There isn't an actual argument or reason why and any time i bring this up the response is always "well it's not allowed", which is a funny response considering i'm challenging whether or not it should even be disallowed. Another funny response i've gotten is "i don't want to fight you if you're going to heal" (not me, i don't usually heal, this was said in a discussion about healing as a "reason" not to), which i find great as i didn't realize i could just... Decide what others can and can't use based on my tastes. The rule was just carried over from the previous games and, for some reason, no one has thought to actually scrutinize the spells to see if they actually shouldn't be used. Great heal and up will completely take your stamina, leaving you open for hits, the casting animations at max casting speed are slow enough to easily punish with a backstab on any of them except maybe projected heal/heal aid and givin how many run around with the hornet ring on you'll actually LOSE hp and you have to invest in faith to even use them along with dex or a ring slot for casting speed and ashen estus to compensate for the fact that heals actually take MORE FP than the attack miracles of their tier. At the very least they should be allowed a certain number of uses, but i personally believe it should be allowed at your discretion as with any other action/magic that you have to invest in to use. Thoughts? Also, no non-arguments like "git gud", "no" or "it's not allowed". I can understand it not being allowed in situations where you're 1v1ing someone REALLY high in level havel-monstering it up as your punish might not cover the heal, but meta range and below is entirely different as 2 hits is usually around half your hp at meta and below your heals heal less unless you invest in faith and lose out on other stat investments.

                it seems kind of redundant to have more that one heal spell (not counting replenishment, soothing sunlight, etc). there should be just one heal spell that scales with faith but instead we have heal aid, med heal, great heal i just don't get it

                  best fp cost to heal ratio in the game if one has high (40-50) vigor and lost more than half. Like most heals is very slow and generally risky to use mid battle.

                    Any signifigance as to why it's found with one of Rosarias grubs, whom all seem to stay near Rosaria, all the way in Irithyll? I'm not one for lore theories, it just strikes me as strange that one of those Caster-Worms not only left Rosaria's side, but traveled quite a long ways (The back of the cathedral can be seen from the bridge and canal at Irithyll, it's no stones-throw)

                      Unlike Heal and Med Heal, this page, along with Soothing Sunlight, does not specify if these spel are affected by Miracle-boosting rings. Are they?

                        It does almost the same amount of heal than soothing sunlight and is more mana efficient for a pure mage build.
