"Helping Hands" Balance Spell

I just got my Balance spell - Helping Hands which gives 540 health over 3 rounds. But I don't think it's working right. All it does is put down a green diamond around the person receiving the spell, and then it does give the 180 health for each of 3 rounds. But there is no picture or anything, like the Helping Hands, that shows the green diamond being put down. Is this right? If so, okay. But I thing something is missing.

(I did send an e-mail to Help and Support just in case it is a bug.)

I believe that is not a bug. There are some other spells like link and scald that dont have a animation.

It is like putting down a triple shield...no real show. Then again, Balance understands that you need to make the magic work, and flashiness is the sign of an rookie.

It is correct. The 540 is spread out over 3 rounds, meaning each round the recipient will receive 180 health ( 3 x 180 = 540 ). But keep this mind, Helping Hands will not revive a defeated wizard.

Hello,
540 health over 3 rounds.,This means it will give you 180 each round to equal the 540, the green diamond shows the turning rounds.. There is no actual graphics other than the green diamond. If there is suppose to be unsure , I have never seen any.

Hope this helps

Also, remember that Helping Hands (unlike such as Life's Sprite spell) doesn't give any health on the round it's cast. Therefore, you need to plan ahead when using it.

I saw my friend use Helping hands (He's a balance grand) and then a giant hand appeared from clouds. Pointing at your ally or yourself. It then gives you the spinning diamond.

Okay... See. That's what I remembered. I thought that I saw someone else using it, and they had the hands appear too.

Thanks for all of the replies.

That is not Balance's Helping Hands. That is a Life spell called Regenerate.

Yeah, a giant hand used to come out of the sky and point at the target. Now, only the green health dot appears with no animation at all.

My best guess is someone complained about the religious overtones of the "hand from God" and they removed it.

No. They didn't change Regenerate (the Life Spell).

We're trying to figure out if they changed Helping Hands (the Balance Spell). The spell card shows two hands shaking each other, and it gives 540 health over 3 rounds. I thought that there used to be some animation with that spell, but I just got it and all it does is put a green diamond down around the player receiving the health over 3 rounds. It gives the health okay. But I was curious about the animation.

They changed many of the spell graphics about a year or so ago...too many players were saying that the length of them was interferring with their play.

I am pretty sure that there has never been an animation with helping hands. People are confusing it with regenerate.
