Using this skill will cause Wisdom of the Council to occur on yourself.
Wisdom of the Council is the Lore-master's "big self-heal", restoring half or more of their own morale pool. It has a reasonably long cooldown and is therefore best saved for emergency situations.
After use, the Lore-master receives a small buff which reflects a small amount of light damage to attacking enemies and has a chance to stun them or absorb damage received.
This skill is a reference to the White Council as it occurs in Tolkien's books: a council of wise elves and wizards, gathering in the Third Age to discuss the threat of Sauron to Middle-earth. The bearers of the three Rings of the Elves, Galadriel, Elrond Halfelven, Gandalf and Círdan the Shipwright were members, as well as Radagast the Brown and Glorfindel. Saruman the White was chosen as the council's head, although Galadriel was in favour of Gandalf.
It was under the influence of the White Council that the Necromancer was driven out of Dol Guldur.
The Lore-master jumps in the air and lands with their staff firmly planted in the ground, at which point they receive a large heal. Afterwards, there are sparkles around the Lore-master's chest and shoulders, reflecting light damage to attacking enemies and occasionally stunning them or absorbing incoming damage.
