In Portrait of Ruin, this spell is earned by completing one of Wind's quest by wearing the 3 nun equipment items. While this spell sounds promising, the heal rate is 2 mp for 1 hp restored, so a regualrly charged spell heals 50 hp and costs 100 mp, and when fully charged heals 100 hp for 200 mp. Due to the massive mp consumption, the player is better off using recovery items, unless the Magnus ring is equiped, which almost eliminates the need for recovery items. The only drawback is the time needed to cast the spells, which is not ideal during intense combat, such as a boss battle.
The spell became more useful in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair as it allows the player to heal not only Charlotte but any surroudning allies. However after the December 2010 patch, the spells effecitveness was reduced slightly although it remains a useful method of supporting allies. The spell can be learned from Witches. In order to make a Witch cast Heal; the player is required to cause damage to her and thus prompt her to heal. The heal spell is a pillar of rainbow light, in order to learn the attack Charlotte must activate her barrier and jump in to the pillar. It is best to use caution when attempting to learn heal as Witches have 2 spells that can be aquired and Charlotte can only learn a single spell from each enemy per run.
One tip for causing the Witch to cast heal more frequently is to equip weaker spells (i.e.: spells that have not been maxed to level 9, do not hit multiple times and have a low damage output) and to then attack the witch until she casts Heal. Once she has cast heal, attack her again as quickly as possible and she may continually use heal after every new strike. It is advisable to attempt learning heal at an early stage as Charlottes melee weapon will be weak and thus very useful in prompting the Witches to heal without killing them (it may also be advisable to transfer to Hard Mode if the Witches are dying too easily on Normal).
