The healer's job is to repair damage done by the enemy. While they may have other skills (typically in the Support role), their primary role on the team is to act as the team's doctor / medic.
A healer character or their skills may be further categorized into direct healing or heal over time.
- Direct Healing
- Healing which applies immediately upon the successful completion of the healing skill
- Heal Over Time
- Healing which begins when the healing skill is successful, but which continues to apply it's healing effect over a given number of seconds/rounds/etc.
- Typically, this type of healing has a lesser effect per tick than direct healing
- However in trade-off it may offer more total effect if the healing target survives the entire cycle.
