Well of Life has two different uses. The first, used on a live target, transfers spirit from the caster to the target. The caster cannot over transfer spirit points and will always be left with at least one. The ability to transfer spirit to a live target is based on Spirit Mana Control skill, much like the Resurrection spell.

The second use is to create a spiritual link to a dead adventurer as the first step in resurrecting them. As the cleric casts this spell, they may or may not be able to determine the target's chosen deity. The reverse is also true and the dead adventurer may be able to determine the cleric's deity as well. The success of this ability is based on Intuition and training in Spiritual Lore, Religion for each person.

After casting Well of Life, the caster will not be able to cast it again for 5 minutes, making it impossible to quickly resurrect groups of adventurers. Spiritual Lore, Blessings decreases the cleric's recuperation period. The cooldowns for linking with the dead and transferring spirit to live targets are separate. The Well of Life cooldown for live targets is solely based on the amount of spirit transferred. A dead character may disconnect a link by using UNLINK (verb).
