Notes Edit

  • Similar to a druid's Regrowth spell, Riptide is both a direct healing spell and a heal over time spell. The direct healing part of the spell can crit, but this will not increase the healing done by the HoT component.
  • Being instant, the spell cannot be interrupted, which makes it a very powerful ability in PvP
