    • Then, it draws three cards, queuing and resolving triggers for each card drawn before drawing the following one.


Lay on Hands is a paladin ability from World of Warcraft that heals the target for an amount equal to the casting paladin's health. One of the paladin's most infamous abilities, it is frequently used to save a target (often the paladin himself) from imminent death, effectively restarting the fight from full health. It has often been criticised for its power, largely by players not familiar with the other weaknesses of the paladin class, due to its ability to allow the paladin to apparently cheat death.

Both spells are based on the 'laying on of hands', a real-world ritual found in many faiths, which can take many different forms.
