Rescued Trait

This trait says that "If Koya saved you, she did so by casting a healing spell on you just before you died, and as a result you gain a +2 trait bonus whenever you use cure spells to heal damage."

What is this a +2 to?


The +2 is if you cast a cure spell to heal someone, ie if you cast Cure Light Wounds it heals 1d8+ caster level (max 5) + 2. This is the way I read it.

its either to the healing done or to the caster level. The difference being that if its CL then the example above would still cap at 1d8+5

It's a +2 bonus to healing done with cure spells. So you'd roll, for cure light wounds, 1d8 +2 +your caster level (max +5) to a maximum of 1d8+7.

Ok, so do you, the character, get the bonus when a any cure spell is cast upon the character (either from you or your friendly cleric or a wand), or do you only get the bonus when you cast cure spells upon yourself from your own spell slots. Or is this a bonus anytime you cast a cure spell, either on yourself or someone else, whether it comes form your own spell casting ability or a wand, scroll, staff, etc...

You add this bonus when you cast the spell. It's not a great trait option for characters who can't cast cure spells.

Thanks for clearing that up!

Allo there,

So this trait would not affect the channeling ability of clerics, but rather only when they -- or other like casters -- actually cast some manner of heal spell? Thank you.

Not just any manner of heal spells, but only those with "cure" in their name.
