The second target will be healed for up to 30% of the total healing done to the first target, including the 150% critical effect multiplier.

Ancestral Awakening currently benefits from Purification in a rather peculiar way: the 10% bonus is applied to the healing done by the spirit. Since the 10% bonus was already included in the heal that proced Ancestral Awakening, this means that the talent effectively gains the bonus from Purification twice, healing for 11/22/33% of the original heal.
