13 October 2021Call to Arms Patch 11Healers in Albion offer a very strong sustain, meaning they have the tools to prevent their group members simply being burst down in group fights. As a result, Healers are usually designed without a lot of damage in their kit, and are thus encouraged to choose whether to use their Q-slot for full sustain or additional damage. However, there was also the option to go full sustain and get damage from other sources such as potions, capes, or armor. To balance this approach, base damage output has been reduced when equipping any healing staff. Healers can negate this penalty by using the damage ability on the Q-slot. This change should reinforce the original intention that Healers choose between sustain and damage.

Flash Heal was rarely used and has thus been reworked: instead of a spammable heal without cooldown, a 3s cooldown was added for a rebalanced high-impact heal, meaning Healers don’t need to remain still to get the maximum healing from this ability. Cast Time was also reduced to make it less susceptible to interrupts, but the Hit Delay was kept in order to broadcast the same ground-based telegraphing to both allies and enemies.

Additionally, some E-abilities of the Holy Line have been adjusted. Holy Explosion has high healing output and good defensive utility with its knockback, so to reduce its self-sustaining quality the Energy Cost per tick was increased. Celestial Sphere is now an uninterruptible cast so that it can't be fully denied (as it often is in competitive 5v5), while the bouncing sphere after the cast still allows for counterplay. Lastly, Hallowfall's Cooldown Reduction now receives a slight buff when hitting an ally, which is meant to somewhat alleviate its very long base cooldown.
