Heroes of the Storm Wiki

Healing fountains (a.k.a. healing wells) are found by each fort. When used, over 20 seconds they replenish 40% of the hero's maximum health and 30% of the hero's maximum mana (other resources are unaffected). It has a 120-second cooldown tracked separately for each hero. Heroes can't use an enemy's fountain.

Fort healing fountains have 1750 health, while Keep healing fountains have 2000 health. One quarter of this health serves as a shield, which starts to regenerate 8 seconds after it stops taking damage.

Destroying a healing fountain doesn't reward any experience.


Healing pads existed in previous builds of the game.[1]
