    Default Chloromancer spell: confused

    I feel so st00pid now. Can anyone explain me the difference between:

    - Lifebound veil
    - Lifegiving veil

    and give me an example why I'd choose 1 above the other?

    greetings,
    Annaela

    How about reading the tooltips?

    Are you sure you have read them properly? It's really kind of self-explanatory.

    LBV for stronger healing on your Synthesis target and weaker aoe healing. LGV for stronger aoe healing at the expense of being able to use Synthesis.

    Just do a forum search. This exact question is covered several times a week.

    Lifebound is for.synthesis. does more healing for him. Lifegiving heals entire party with certain powers. Basically one for tank and the other for.group. if u have a good group, then don't bother using lifebound. Also for soloing, unless u have a pet, use lifegiving. You can heal yourself much better

    You know, those tooltips are like 3 page essay's... and if I hadn't been playing a mage for months, and tested out the changes myself, I could very easily see how they could be confusing.

    That being said, the search function is your friend!

    Also:

    As a Chloromancer you can choose between heavier AoE or heavier Tank healing. Lifegiving Veil increases your AoE healing, while Lifebound Veil allows you to use Synthesis, but at the cost of AoE healing. Synthesis is a long term buff that gives a single, friendly target a massive boost to the healing the receive from the mage.
    Before making a new post anna, i'd check that website, bluedots has tons of up to date documentation on mages.

    The Mage forums are full of *******s and whiners.
    The issue isn't in LBV/LGV's tooltip at all. There's absolutely no indication in their tooltips as to the roles.
    The tooltips you should be referring to are Synthesis(and all related passive Talents), Void Life, Empathic Bond, and Nature's Touch.

    That's exactly what I thought. I'm pretty sure the ones that tell me to read the tooltips haven't read them at all. To give you an example check the picture I added to this post. It's exactly what the tooltips says in game.
    Lifegiving veil has exactly the same text as Lifebound veil only better stats.

    So that was why I was this confused.
