  • More responsibility is put on the recipient of the healing to know when they need the healing rather than the monk; however, in order to prevent any possible backlash, many monks resort to putting spheres as close as possible to their targets so effort is minimal to use them.
  • With good aim and timing, spheres can be used on moving targets.
