Gift of the Naaru is a racial ability of the draenei. It heals a target over 15 seconds for an amount equal to the caster's total health.


  • A blue sigil appears on the forehead of the caster for 15 seconds.
  • The amount healed is typically modest compared to most healer class abilities, but don't forget about it - this ability costs no resources, and does not trigger the global cooldown (though it is affected by it).

Tricks and Tactics

  • Gift of the Naaru is a great emergency button for draenei of any class. Since it has no cast time, it can be cast on the run or in a crunch. Priests, Paladins, or Shamans can drop Gift, and then follow it up with a fast heal or two to get back on their feet.
  • In raid/instance situations, when the entire group takes massive damage (such as Festergut's Pungent Blight), a draenei can pop this to alleviate some of the stress on the healers.
  • It can be cast on other players and although it is not the most powerful heal it can help when thrown into a regular healing rotation.
  • Because it doesn't trigger the GCD, tanks (or pretty much anybody) can drop it on themselves to help out with the healing, and not lose too much other work.
  • This ability will cause shadow priests to drop [Shadowform] thus requiring a GCD to reapply it.
