Tactical Information

--The information below is deprecated, as the skill now only costs Morale--

Share the Power is the only skill in game that allows a player to 'heal' another player's, or allied NPC's, power by a large amount. It costs almost, but not quite, as much power as it gives the target. The fortitude of Share the Power is affected by all stat effects and bonuses that affect healing, including the outgoing healing of the Lore-master, the incoming healing of the target and the Lore-master's Healer trait. The casting time is quite low, especially with the Healer trait, so that even at full power a Lore-master may give nearly all their power to other players in a matter of seconds if they so choose. It is possible for two Lore-masters to both cast Share the Power on one another repeatedly, slowly gaining power between each other in the process.

Power of Knowledge (especially with the Power and Wisdom trait equipped) coupled with Share the Power allows the Lore-master to constantly refill their allies' power throughout a long battle, regardless of the Lore-master's in-combat power regeneration. This unique capability is usually considered one of the most important roles of the Lore-master in full fellowships and raids, given the importance of supplying the healer(s) with enough power to keep the group alive in long battles.

Share the Power and Healer

The trait Healer used to increase the healing of this skill by 10%, and reduce the induction by 50% and the power cost by 15%. The trait currently does not influence Share the Power at all anymore, though. Since there has been no word from any developer about this phenomenon, this is probably a bug. [1]
