This category contains items that heal one or more party members. Many of these items can restore a character's maximum health.
One oddity of healing items is that when a hero is healed by using one, they gain XP for the health they regain as they would for using a healing ability. Each hero always gets the XP for the amount they are healed even if the item was used by an ally. This can add up to a significant XP boost if you use the items when you really need them.
