Chain Heal is a 'smart' heal and always jumps to the eligible target with the largest health deficit in range. The bounce radius is 12.5 yards. Since the targets are linked into a chain, targets must be within range of each other, in order of "bounce". The chain cannot jump back to heal the same target more than once.
Chain Heal has a separate chance to crit on each target.
