Healing Sphere is a Mistweaver monk PvP talent.


Healing spheres are similar to the [Lightwell], in that it summons a persistent source of healing that allies can consume to heal themselves. Unlike the Lightwell, they require no clicking; walking through a sphere is sufficient.

If a fourth healing sphere is cast when there are already three active, the oldest spawned sphere will despawn. Spheres also despawn if the monk moves too far away from them. The three spheres restriction only applies to the spheres actively summoned by this ability, not to the two types of passively generated spheres, whose number at any given moment is unlimited.

It is possible to cast a sphere directly under oneself or an injured ally, in which case it will be consumed shortly afterwards and act as an instant direct heal.
