Healer's Touch is an achievement feat from Player's Guide which gives you the ability to Maximize healing spells without the level increase. So I wonder, does this maximize the damage healed by Channel Energy too?
RAW, I would say no.
The feat states:
When you cast a healing spell to heal a target other than yourself, the spell is maximized as though using the Maximize Spell effect.
Channeling is a Supernatural ability and thus is not a spell or spell-like and so makes channeling not eligible for the feat.
*opens can of worms*
Mmm...interesting question though. The feat was written for 3.5ed, before Channel Energy came into the game.
Does that mean the Cleric has to keep separate the spell healing and the channel healing for the feat. If not, does the channel just take into account the dice roll, or is it the amount healed, ie the dice roll times the amount of characters effected that were carrying damage.
I think, off the top of my head, that I would allow the character to add in both spells and channel, and they can elect to take the feat twice. Firstly for spells and secondly for channel, having to met the prerequistes twice.
is it true HT maxes without the level increase? My group is a buncha turds.
