The druids' reverence for nature allows them to bestow wondrous gifts upon their allies.[1]

Healing Touch is a level 26 Restoration druid healing spell. It is the largest direct heal available to the class. It is costly but effective, making it good for delivering large amounts of healing to a target.


  • High cost but equally high healing makes this a good spell to use on a target that's taking heavy damage but isn't in danger of dying during the long cast time, such as a tank.

Tips and Tactics

  • If you think your target might die while you're casting this spell, cast [Regrowth] first to buy yourself a little time.
