The solo PvE / PvP experience has been improved, with a reworked Thorns spell and a new Brambleseed spell that knocks enemies airborne. Rejuvenating Mushroom has been replaced with the new Rejuvenating Flower multi-part spell: Grow multiple flowers on the ground that can be picked up and thrown to a specific spot to provide instant healing and Rejuvenation stacks. Revitalize is now on a much shorter cooldown, and is limited more by energy cost than by cooldown, to make it more useful in PvP and provide higher single-target healing output to compete with Holy Staffs in group PvE. Various other improvements and adjustments have also been made to make these staffs feel more polished.

    13 October 2021Call to Arms Patch 11As noted above (under Holy Staffs), base damage output when equipping healing staffs has been reduced. This is to counter a workaround whereby Healers could go full sustain on the Q-slot and get damage from other sources. Now they would have to use the Q-slot damage ability to counter the reduced base damage output, in line with the original intention that they choose between sustain and damage.

    Spirit Animal is currently underrepresented in large-scale fights, although it is in precisely these situations that it is meant to shine. To increase its impact, cast range has been adjusted and the cast direction can now be chosen independently. This allows the Healer to better support his army from the back line.

    • Equipping any Nature Staff reduces all damage output by 50%
    • Thorns (all Nature Staffs):
      • Now increases the caster's damage by 10% for 10s (stacks up to 5 times)
    • Spirit Animal (Rampant Staff):
      • Cast Range: at caster → 12m
      • Now cast direction can be selected independent of cast position
