Healing Spell info

"Heal your Troops to keep them in the fight!
Cast this spell to create a Ring of Healing. Your units will be healed while they are inside this ring."


  • The Healing Spell is the second spell unlocked at Level 2 Spell Factory, requiring the Town Hall to be at level 6. When placed, the spell forms a stationary ring of healing on the ground. All friendly Troops and Heroes within the ring will be healed (ground or air), including Healers.
  • While Heroes can also be healed by the Healing Spell, the rate of healing is reduced to 55% the rate of normal troops. On the other hand, Siege Machines are completely unaffected by the Healing Spell.
  • It lasts for a total of 12 seconds (40 healing 'pulses' every 0.3 seconds).
  • Visually, the Healing Spell provides a medium-ranged radius with yellow shades of glowing color representing the healing effect. A similar effect can be seen while the Healer is healing.



  • It is generally better to use the Healing Spell when a large number of your troops are together, as each troop will be healed individually at the same rate (irrespective of how many troops are being healed).
  • Giants, Hog Riders, Miners and Valkyries all benefit significantly from a Healing Spell, as they have moderate health and can get healed quickly.
  • It is best to save your Healing Spells for when your troops are significantly damaged (when many of them are around half health) to maximize the spell's potential.
  • It can also be used for healing units such as Goblins while they attack Gold Storages and Elixir Storages. However, this might not be effective, as a Mortar or Wizard Tower of sufficient level may be able to instantly defeat them.
  • Any unit that moves out of the Healing Spell's radius will immediately stop being healed. As such, before you place a Healing Spell, make sure that you predict where your units are going to go, so they stay inside the radius longer.
  • The Healing Spell goes well with the Rage Spell, due to the fact that the Rage Spell makes troops faster and stronger while healing them makes them much more durable as well. However, the Rage Spell's speed boost may make troops leave the healing circle faster, so should be used sparingly (such as when tackling the core of a base).
    • It is very effective when they are used with high-health and/or slow troops that are not in range with many defenses.
  • You can stack Healing Spells on top of each other to increase the effect.


  • Defending heals is all about where the heals will be placed and what to do to counter them.
  • Keeping splash damage far apart can minimize the value of the Healing Spell. Additionally, keep Giant Bombs away from splash defenses, so they do not get healed over.
  • Bomb Towers, with their considerable damage upon destruction, can easily force Healing Spells similarly to Giant Bombs.
  • Spring Traps should be used where you expect heals, as then troops will be at their strongest so this will remove them when they are at their strongest.
  • Use a Tesla Farm (Multiple Hidden Teslas near each other with some traps in between) to force a heal. This could ruin the attacker's plan if they cannot heal another splash defense.
  • At lower levels, double Giant Bombs will destroy Hog Riders before a Heal even gets a chance to heal them. Try to keep them unnoticeable and place them where attackers cannot easily break the formation.

  • Although the Healing Spell can be upgraded to level 2 in the level 2 Laboratory, only Troops, and Spells that are already unlocked will appear in the Laboratory upgrade interface. The Healing Spell will not appear in the Laboratory until the Spell Factory has been upgraded to level 2 (which requires Town Hall level 6). Most players already have a level 4 Laboratory by that time; if so, the first two upgrades will be available as soon as the Spell Factory level 2 upgrade finishes.
  • Originally, Inferno Towers nullified Healing Spells’ effectivity. However, this was changed in the June 2018 Update.
  • The Healing Spell, Lightning Spell and Rage Spell were the first spells to be added to the game.
