  • correct, that is the crux of the question. A mage that learned Healing Heart as a rote but not Self-Healing would get more successes and risk less paradox with that rote than spontaneously casting Self-Healing on himself. Likewise, a Proximi may have learned the Healing Heart rote as a blessing but not Self Healing, and doesn't have the option to cast spontaneously....

  • Because Healing Heart says it "can heal the wounds of other humans." It does not say it can be used to heal yourself like Self-Healing does.

    Here is the spell text from the book for Self-Healing and Healing Heart:

    Self-Healing (Life ••)

    A lot of the self-only spells have an identical version for one dot more that can be used on others. My question is, do these advanced version of the spells HAVE to be used on others? I know it doesn't really matter when it comes to spontaneous casting, but if, for example, I knew Healing Heart as a rote but did not know Self-Healing as a rote, could I cast the Healing Heart rote on myself? Same question for any of the other similar spells. There is an obvious advantage there for rote casting, and even more so for Proximi that know one as a blessing but not another.
