Pulled me through practically all of the later half of the game by itself.

Raise that to 10, raise the Herb Mastery to 10 too, and you're close to invincible.

Mine wasn't that good... probably because I didn't max the mastery until I didn't need it anymore.
I got more mileage out of chase heal.

he can also heal in his sleep somehow...it def helped the most with maxed reflex+lv1 herb mastery and plenty in herb boost for that overheal..delayed heal is good if you get preemtive strike..

Okay, that's great, he can heal even while disabled? Amazing.

I have been debating over whether to rest my broni poisoner into a healer since I've been keeping a celestrian in the wings. I even did a mock up rest and assigned points but it felt very unimpressive.

That said I am getting towards the end of the game so it might be time. Particularly since I'm finally thinking of getting rid of my necromancer karuto coffin.

I've got a blade master, deathbringer, evoker, and elemancer along side my posioner. Any recommendations on what to do with him if he is a healer?

Get herb boost maxed and a healing skill maxed, any one you like. Herb boost is like overheal and it makes your party pretty tanky.

Yes it is. I used to have it at level 5 with level 10 Herb mastery and it was pretty much all the healing I needed. I then rested my botanist and got level 5 Mastery and level 10 Reflex and... it's not as good. It's a lot more TP and I didn't even notice a difference in healing. I think I'mma rest that brownie again if I swap her for my current shaman.

It's exceptionally useful on the 6th stratum, where enemies can easily kill most of your units before you even get the opportunity to heal.

Yeah, that's where I was using lvl 10 Reflex, but it made her chug TP like there's no tomorrow. In the end I changed my party to something with more damage (as in: able to one-shot some of the enemies) with a Shaman and I'm having no problem since.

Except for blindside attacks when gathering. But Reflex wouldn't do much in that regard anyways.

JFC, I'd kill whoever thought blindsides while gathering was a good idea.
