1. many "healers" spend a lot more mana on killing than healing
2. many current players/builds spend a lot of mana healing self, and therefore need their pots
3. turbine has lowered the drop rates of mana pot in an attempt to increase store sales
4. content has been changed in many ways recently to increase resource use, massive health, massive damage, red named trash mobs, etc
solution: zero mana cost heal other spells
every time any class hits a spell level with heal spells available, autogrant heal other version for free.
zero cost, cant target or affect self, pets or mobs(undead). even mass heal other spells, even harm friend to help heal necromancers.
i imagine the current healer crisis in the game would greatly lessen.
also, give bards heal and wail at lvl 18 core, no other class requires pure to cast heal, not even close.
