Description: The target creature is healed for 3d8 points of damage, +1 point per caster level (to a maximum of +15). Healing spells have a reverse effect on undead, harming instead of healing them. A successful touch attack must first be made when this spell is used against undead.


  • On the "normal" difficulty setting and easier, curative spells cast on a player character are automatically maximized, or double the constant part (+1 per caster level) if already maximized.
  • This spell inflicts positive energy damage on a targeted undead, unless the creature is friendly to the caster.
  • Contrary to the in-game description, there is no saving throw.
