Just curious why the table for the lore bonus shows thresholds for rank 1 wounds when there's no actual benefit for them. OM1E5GA (talk) 10:18, 29 January 2018 (CST)

RT reduction benefit of Transformation Lore with Rapid Healing

I have 2 empaths just over level 25, and I noticed that while using Rapid Healing (1116) and curing minor limb scars, one of my empaths has a 12 second rt (she has no Transformation Lore), and the other has a 1 second rt (she has 30 ranks of Transformation Lore). I came here to sort of find answers as to why, before I noticed the Transformation Lore myself and figured it out.

This article for Rapid Healing (1116) does not explain exactly why, because the reason is technically more about how Transformation Lore works with the healing spells themselves, and not with Rapid Healing (1116). This article only mentions that Rapid Healing (1116) does something else helpful to the Rapid Healing (1116) spell.

But it is of great interest to me, that training in Transformation Lore makes it possible to so very well intensify the effects of Rapid Healing (1116), and for my one empath, reduce her RT to almost zero with only 30 ranks of Transformation Lore. So I would like to see that mentioned in this article somehow if it would be at all appropriate.

It could make a helpful difference to someone studying this spell to make a decision about their training path. I'm not a writer of good concise understandable information for the wiki, and my brain is fried right now. But if anyone reads this and can decipher what I am saying, and it seems appropriate to add it to the article, thank you for the help doing so. -Soliere FIRENSIA (talk) 02:17, 7 April 2020 (CDT)

According to my calculations based off the Healing roundtime article, to get those results the empath without lore has 23-26 ranks in the Empath Circle and the one with lore has 55-58 ranks in the Empath Circle (I'm assuming all decimals truncate). Without the lore, your RTs should be 27sec and 16sec, respectively.
When using 1116, the healing RT is halved, THEN the benefits of transformation lore and empath spells are applied, which is why the reduction is so dramatic with the second empath. If the spell ranks I listed above are incorrect and you get the same results after dong the math, then there's something on the wiki that's not accurate. OM1E5GA (talk) 10:31, 9 April 2020 (CDT)
