So, Druid can spend 1 action to roll 2 dice (5 or 6 succeeds);
Cleric can spend X action to roll X dice (5 or 6 succeeds);
Healer can spend 1 action to roll X dice (X is the number of minions on that location, 5 or 6 succeeds);
None of them needs a card.

Can anyone explain to me why Cleric's healing land skill seems less effective than Druid and Healer? IMO, Druid can deal 2 dice with just 1 action and Healer can deal 3 dice with 1 action (because normally a tainted location has 3 minions), however Cleric deal 1 dice per action... What do you think? As a Cleric, she should be most powerful in terms of healing land, isn't it?

Druids are one with the land and therefore better able to heal it. Their magic comes from the land, nature in general, and as such it is stronger when used in regard to the land. The Cleric calls for a spiritual healing, a blessing upon the land but does not have the same magic as the Druids for this particular action.

Hope this answers your question. Richard

I think the Druid being better at healing the land is thematically appropriate- they are one with the trees and all that jazz.
