Tips Edit

Lightwell enables free healing for non-tanks that are in need of one while the priest has to focus the heals on another character, and/or can also be used to help warlocks recover mana in long fights, since they can use it to heal themselves after Life Tapping for mana.

This method definitely saves a lot of mana that would normally be spent on heals. Using this spell during fights against a boss or while recovering from a wipe definitely pays off the rather long cooldown.

You can click to receive a HoT from a Lightwell even when you're:

  1. Stunned
  2. Sapped
  3. Casting
  4. Running
  5. Feared
  6. Falling
  7. Eating

Controversy Edit

Previous complaints included both a lack of effect from a priest's +heal, and the ability of a confused or malicious party member to take all the charges by repeatedly right-clicking on the Lightwell.

In patch 2.2.0, these complaints were addressed, with mixed results: while Lightwell got 100% benefit from +healing, most members of the party - except the caster - could still spam click it.

However, the primary complaint was that the healing received from using the Lightwell would break on damage, similar to using a bandage. Lightwell would be most powerful in AoE heavy fights in order to heal the dps classes while allowing the healer to focus on the tank, but this was a risky time to use it: the heal could be interrupted, preventing the full healing benefits of the well.

In patch 3.0, Lightwell received further changes: the healing effect only broke if damage received equaled more than 30% of total health. Furthermore the total number of charges was increased to 10.

Sometime after patch 3.0 players could only have one Lightwell Renew effect on them at a time, thus ceasing all attempts by players to eat a Lightwell, whether intentionally or otherwise.
