Written by Lorhin, Edited by Xam Xam. Healers heal. Obviously. Everyone knows that. I could just end the guide here, but you didn’t come to read my guide just to see me tell you what the healer’s job is in a one word summary.

Either way, if you have any curiosity on what I have to say on this subject, keep reading. So…who am I? I am Lorhin. …
