Healing Amplification increases the hit points cured by healing spells and effects. It stacks with various spellpower bonuses. It comes from race, class, items, and miscellaneous sources. To calculate your heal amp rating, add all sources of heal amp together. Items granting the same bonus type don't stack, only the highest value applies. To see your healing amplification, open your character sheet and hover over your Hit Points score.
Update 24 introduced a new formula: Healing Amplification rating increases all healing by
(100 + Rating) / 100. For Warforged and Bladeforged, the result is again multiplied by racial penalty, see below.
The most common form of Healing Amplification is the type that uses Positive energy. However, there are also various other types of Healing Amplification available, including those using Negative and Repair energy. Despite the differing energy types involved, they all work through the same principle.
- 1 Positive Healing Amplification
- 1.1 Racial multiplier
- 1.2 Racial enhancements
- 1.3 Class enhancements
- 1.4 Item bonus
- 1.5 Guild bonus
- 1.6 Feats
- 1.7 Epic Destinies
- 2 Stacking with Spellpower

Positive Healing Amplification
Most base races and transformed races start off with a Positive energy vulnerability (Healing) of 100% allowing all Divine healing spells to function normally on them. i.e. healing multiplier of 1.0.
Transforming from your original race to another will alter this multiplier.
Your most recent "racial transformation" is considered for this multiplier. So a Warforged that has entered into Lich Form would utilise the Racial type: Undead healing multiplier of 0.0 rather than their original Warforged healing multiplier of 0.5.
- Living types (Human, Elf, Dwarf, Halfling, Half-Elves, Drow, Elemental, Animal) have a 100% vulnerability to Positive energy.
- An Undead type will be set to a Healing multiplier of 0.0, resulting in them being unable to be healed via spells and effects that deal Positive energy.
- Warforged and Bladeforged type start off with a 50% Positive energy vulnerability (i.e. Healing multiplier of 0.5). This can be increased by Healer's Friend enhancements to 0.6 / 0.7 / 0.8.
- Bladeforged receive an additional -10%. The actual effect is second multiplier of 0.9. Thus, a Bladeforged without Healer's Friend enhancements has racial multiplier of 0.45 (0.5 * 0.9). With the enhancements, the multiplier is 0.54 / 0.63 / 0.72 ( )
- Human Improved Recovery has three stacking tiers of +20 each for a total of +60 (available to Humans and Purple Dragon Knights)
- Half-elves can take two tiers of Human Improved Recovery for a total of +40.
Class bonuses from different classes stack (add together).
- Barbarians have multiple stacking bonuses to healing amplification in the cores of their trees
- Druids can grant +30 heal amp (enhancement bonus) to one character (Crown of Summer).
- needs u24 update: Half-Elf Monk Dilettante enhancements (Half-Elf Improved Recovery) has two stacking tiers each for a maximum multiplier of 1.21. (This locks out monk's amplification)
- Fighters get +50 heal and repair amplification for 30 seconds when drinking any potion.
- Monks get +10 heal amplification per each core ability of the Shintao tree.
- Paladins can get 3 tiers of +20 heal amplification enhancements in the Knight of the Chalice tree.
- Warlocks can gain up to +25 heal amp from Enlightened Spirit enhancements + 25 temporary from Shining Through (Sacred bonus)
- Any class can gain +20 from Harper enhancements
The healing amplification on items comes in different types. Items of the same type do not stack. Items with various types of healing amplification stack. The bonuses stack by addition.

Stacking with Spellpower
Healing Amplification stacks multiplicatively with effects that increase the power of healing spells, such as metamagic feats (e.g. Empower Healing), class enhancements (e.g. Cleric Life Magic), item enchantments (e.g. Devotion), scroll mastery enhancement, etc. Incoming healing is simply multiplied by character's total healing amplification. This multiplication is applied only after rounding the amount after applying spellpower (always rounded down) and is then rounded again (always down too).
Example: Cure Light Wounds on CL 5+ with 20 spellpower and 10% healing amplification should in theory heal: 1.1*1.2*(1d6+7) = 10.56-17.16 rounded to 10-17 Instead it heals: 1.2*(1d6+7) = 9.6-15.6 rounded to 9-15 -> 1.1*(9-15) = 9.9-16.5 rounded to 9-16 Note: The range is discrete with only 6 objects in each set, so the average isn't the average of minimum and maximum.
