Pathfinder Player Companion: Healer's Handbook (PFRPG)

Add Print Edition $14.99

Add PDF $10.49

New Pathfinder Player Companion Released!

Whether it's for getting patched up after a fight, dealing with a debilitating disease contracted in a fetid dungeon, or negating the effects of a terrible poison in the middle of combat, eventually every adventurer needs a healer. Most healers have their own agendas, though, and these don't always end at mending their allies' ailments. With Pathfinder Player Companion: Healer's Handbook, characters can learn to efficiently heal their patients—without finding themselves reduced to being walking first-aid kits.

Ever wanted a more specialized approach to healing? Healer's Handbook has you covered! Included are 10 healing-focused archetypes, including the wilderness medic ranger, who uses herbalist training and medicine to keep the party members standing.

Are party members "accidentally" getting in the way of your wizard's spells? The arcane physician is adept at using and making healing-focused magic items, including potions that will help take the sting out of the party's wounds.
There are also a plethora of new options for alchemists, including the sacrament alchemist for alchemist who are priests. Clerics, druids, bards, oracles, paladins, and shamans get a slew of healing-focused options, as well.

Healer's Handbook also introduces new feats, traits, kineticist wild talents, witch hexes, new magic items, and more.

Take a look at the rest of the Pathfinder Player Companions we carry on paizo.com!

Amanda showed me those. I was impressed; they were really cool! Because she did, I was able to reference them in Psychic Anthology, when normally the releases would have been too close to each other to coordinate.

A lot of groups should pitch in and buy this book, out of purely selfish reasons, for whomever is playing the party's healer . . .

I was under the impression that all kineticist content went past you. ^_^

Are there rules for cheese-borne spores? If not, you'd better get the cheese to sick bay.

I would have liked to see a fighter on the cover walking around a city, begging for help, holding out a wand, a sword stuck in his side.


Damnit! I'm a doctor, not a...


I'm looking forward to this, but will not purchase it until it is PFS sanctioned. I've been burned too many times. So, when can I anticipate it being reviewed for the Additional Resources page?

I counted 15 archetypes listed in the product thread by a subscriber. Is the above wrong, or are 5 of the archetypes that ended up in the book not actually focused on healing?

I think it may be true that up til now I've seen it all for at least a brief skim, but despite the fact that a perfect record implies a rule of some kind via Occam's Razor, it's actually a series of coincidences. In general, non-RPG books are the purview of whoever is listed as Lead Developer in the book's credits, and it would be unlikely for someone else to look at things from a product that wasn't their own.

I just want to thank you for the shout-out to Voyager.


Very excited to see more Kineticist wild talents! Hopefully they get sanctioned for PFS, I'd like to see more options for my Telekineticist healer!
