A '''Spirit Healer''' is an [[angel]]ic (maybe an [[Angel]]) being. Spirit Healers wait within the [[astral realm]] / [[spirit world]] for those unfortunate adventurers whose spirits will soon join them. These floating figures of death and rebirth return people to life where their spirit stands.<ref name="WoWOSG 28">''[[WoWOSG]]'', pg. 28</ref> They are usually encountered at a [[graveyard]] after death. Although it can't be seen while dead, a Spirit Healer has blue skin and white wrappings. Its wings are a paler blue.

Spirit Healers are able to [[resurrect]] players at the cost of 25% [[durability]] loss to all items (both equipped and in inventory) at the graveyard where they are found. In addition, if you are resurrected by a Spirit Healer, you will suffer from [[Resurrection Sickness]]. As of [[patch 2.4]], players that have the resurrection sickness debuff are worth no honor. This debuff decreases all of your [[attributes]] and damage dealt by 75%, and has a duration that varies depending on your level:

Normal Spirit healers do not appear in the Death Knight Starting Zone. They are replaced by [[Val'kyr Battle-maiden]]s.

If you run to a Spirit Healer at another graveyard and ask her to bring you back to life she will do so, but the resurrection sends you back to the graveyard at which you originally spawned as a ghost. However, if you log out and log back in, your character loses its association with that graveyard's Spirit Healer, so you will be able to return to life at the graveyard of the Spirit Healer you speak to. Thus, it is possible for a character to die in one zone, reach a spirit healer far away, relog, and resurrect safely at the nearby spirit healer. When relogging the [[minimap]] arrow ([[File:GuideMinimapArrow_up_16x16.png]]) for the nearest Spirit Healer will also disappear. '''(This trick no longer works! I have used it in the past, but as of at least Oct 10, 2010 it no longer works!)'''

::''The Spirit Healer's imagery is an adaptation of the archangels from Blizzard's [[Diablo]] series; in both cases, the "wings" of the beings are in fact tendrils of energy arranged in a wing-shaped configuration.''

*[[Spirit of Redemption]]
* The Default Spirit Healer for Alliance is in Sentinel Hill,{{fact}} alternatively the Horde's is in the Crossroads.{{fact}} If you die in an uncharted location or location otherwise unlinked to a Spirit Healer, your spirit upon release will be at the default graveyard,{{fact}} in many cases the only way to rez is via rez sickness.
 
   
== Trivia ==
+
==Patch changes==
* Shortly after the game went live, some players claimed that the Spirit Healer whispers a coherent sentence that is hard to hear:{{fact}}
 
**"Play World of Warcraft"
 
**"Give us your money"
 
**"That's right customer"
 
**"It's not that much"
 
* While Spirit Healers do emit strange, whispery sounds at low volume, Blizzard insists that they are just random vocal effects and that there is no scripted statement to be heard.
 
* Before October 2010 if you were to log out and log back in, you would no longer be linked to the spirit healer you spawned at, thus allowing you to go to a different spirit healer and spawn in another location.
