What Is A Healer In Raid Shadow Legends?
A healer in Raid Shadow Legends is a champion that increases the life points of other champions as well as themselves through single target, AOE, or hot (healing over time) abilities.
Healers are great additions to any team and help your team members stay alive in long fights.
What Is An AOE Heal In Raid Shadow Legends?
An AOE heal in Raid Shadow Legends is a healing ability that affects the entire team. AOE stands for area of effect.
AOE healing abilities are extraordinary vs. enemies that attack your whole team. So you will often bring an AOE healer when there is an AOE damage dealer on the opposing team, whether that’s a boss in a dungeon or a champion in arena mode.
A great example of an AOE heal is the rare champions, Pain Keeper’s spectacular sweep ability. After attacking all enemies, this ability heals all allies by 15% of the champion’s max HP. This ability is an excellent AOE heal and on a rare champ nonetheless.
What Is A Single Target Heal In Raid Shadow Legends?
A single target heal in Raid Shadow Legends is a healing ability that targets just one champion on your team. Single target healing abilities are great for bringing one champion back to full hp or keeping a frontline tank alive.
When playing on manual, this will be the target you choose, but it will depend on certain conditions when playing on auto. Usually, this will be the champion on your team with the lowest health.
An example of a great single target heal is the champion, Apothecary’s ability called Soothing Chant. This ability heals a target ally for 35% HP, which can be crit. So it is a great heal to bring into any fight.
What Is HoT In Raid Shadow Legends?
HoT stands for heal over time, and In Raid Shadow Legends, that means an ability that heals a champion over multiple turns via a buff. This buff is called continuous heal and heals based on the champions max HP.
The continuous heal buff comes in two forms, the strong version of the buff 15% and the weak version 7.5%. The only downside of healing through buffs is the buffs can be removed or stolen. So it’s essential to analyze your opponent’s abilities in both arena and dungeon content and make sure they don’t have any counters to buffs.
This type of heal is often underrated but can be very powerful if used correctly. HoT abilities are typically utilized on tanky champions who will soak up the damage and then heal over time. This buff will keep them alive and allow them to continue taking damage for the team.
Here are some champions with an AOE continuous heal 15%:
- Bad-El-Kazar (Legendary)
- Black Knight (Legendary)
- Sir Nicholas (Legendary)
- Romero (Epic)
- Zelotah (Epic)
- Arcanist (Rare)
- Reliquary Tender (Rare)
Here are some champions with an AOE continuous heal 7.5%:

- Chevalier (Rare)

- Mother Superior (Rare)
- Runic Warder (Rare)
- Zephyr Sniper (Rare)
