      Why is no one taking into account that this also heals a wider radius than Great Heal, and has an extra 150% increase from Great Heal's 550% x spell buff? That can literally heal any phantom from 1 HP to full HP. A good tactic to use is while fighting a boss, take advantage of how big the heal radius is so that your summon/host can still keep agro on a boss, but be further away so you have a lower chance of the boss hitting you and interrupting your cast. For solo players, I'd still recommend Great Heal, sometimes even Med Heal.

        Fun fact. This spell (if you're invading) can heal enemies. Couple that with Sacred Oath or the War Banner. You can actually support some enemies.
        Tested on Silver Knights, Darkwraiths and Harald Knights.

              Tbh great heal does almost the same amount of heal and is more mana efficient for a pure mage build. I use this one just bc it LOOKS better.

                I don't know how to update the wiki, but it has a range of about 2 medium rolls and a few steps away. It will heal around 1000 health at 45 faith, as faith increases it heals more. I have 1600 health and it fully heals me at 99 faith, so it does not heal a flat 1000. The range is unfortunate but this is still by far the best healing spell in the game.

                  Single strongest heal in the game, the exact multiplier against your chime/talisman's spellbuff isn't known yet, but this heals considerably more than Great Heal.The range seems to be the same as Great Heal though, which is disappointing. One of the big allures of this spell in DS2 was that the range was near-global, so if you were a sunbro and thought the host was in danger, you could just pop this and get them back to full no problem.Now we're back to the "Dude I'm over here chargin mah healz, get over here." which doesn't really work with DS3's bloodborne-ified combat, where the bosses are super fast and charge all over the *****. The host is just as likely to die from trying to reach you to get the heal than if they were to just panic-estus in front of the boss.To sum up; Big healz, big focus cost, not much reason to attune outside of flavour due to reduced range and slow effect.
