dnd elvish druid healing a human fighter

Healing spells are a small part of DnD 5e. Many more spells deal damage, provide utility, buff allies, or debuff enemies. But still, 5e’s healing spells are an important part of the game.

Whether keeping allies alive in combat, restoring their health after combat, removing a debuff, or even resurrecting the dead, you’re bound to see a healing spell used in just about every DnD session.

Here is a list of the 27 healing spells in DnD 5e, as well as the total average healing value of each. Note that the average healing value assumes the maximum targets are healed and doesn’t take into account the healer’s spellcasting modifier, if applicable.
