When compared to the paladins spell list, the rangers
available spells can seem a bit uninspiring. Though rangers have plenty
of useful spells, they have nothing with the punch of bless weapon
or holy sword. To close that power gap, we've offered three new
ranger spells over the course of three months. Add them to your rangers
repertoire and watch the sparks fly! This month our third spell, heal
animal companion, enables you to care for your ranger's best friend.
Drd 5, Rgr 3
animal companion touched
animal companion enables the caster to wipe away disease and injury
in one of his or her own animal companions (gained via class feature or
the animal friendship spell). It completely cures all diseases,
blindness, or deafness of the animal companion, cures all points of damage
suffered due to wounds or injury, and repairs temporary ability damage.
It cures mental disorders caused by spells or injury to the brain.
animal companion does not remove negative levels, restore drained
levels, or restore drained ability scores.
