Do I need to take Chivalry and Healing? Doesn't Chiv have a very powerful healing and makes Healing redundant? I could use another skill (like Bushido) instead.

I wouldnt call it very powerful, it's less than a mage's Greater Heal but more than a Heal. It's good because it's faster to cast than to apply a bandage, although if your dex is high enough then bandages are just another second or two for a lot more returned health. Bushido doesnt heal your directly per se, just boosts your hp regen by a lot for several seconds. I would take Chiv for the pvm aspects and use Close Wounds as a stop gap either for yourself or companions but usually rely on bandages.

I agree with everything Tancred posted and also wanted to add that Close Wounds is a spell.
If you are running and cast Close Wounds, you will STOP to cast!
If you want to cast it on someone else they have to be standing within about 2 tiles from you.

You can't run and heal at the same time with Chiv, and you can't shoot/swing and heal at the same time with Chiv. Also, you have to either run with protection (and hence at faster casting 0) or risk interruption from being hit when you heal using chiv.

I have chiv on both of my physical damage dealers, and I almost never use close wounds (in fact, I don't think I even have it macro'd anymore). It's for offensive spells, remove curse, and cleanse by fire.

Don't forget, with Chiv you also get Cleanse By Fire(removes poison) which you can cast while you have a bandage going for healing the damage. Rather than having to cure with a bandage, then do another for the heal, you'd be cured and healed up in seconds.

Consecrate Weapon. Divine Fury. Enemy Of One. Those 3 are the biggest reasons to use chiv.

curing with it is nice, and recalling is convenient, but the real reason for chiv is buffing damage.

What everyone has said is true... however...

If you somehow manage to get 4 points in faster casting (a ring, a bracelet, a weapon and a shield) then you can easily cast close wounds while under attack most of the time.

I wouldn't use that as a substitute for bandages though.

Keep in mind that if you do combine Chiv with Magery for the Greater Heal and Arch Cure (as well as the other useful spells) that your Chiv will be capped for 2FC like Magery is.

Bushido isn't worth taking with Chiv even for the battle aspects either?

yes, it is worth taking.

ABC archers (Archery Bushido Chiv) are effective, and bushido helps even more on a melee with mitigation if you use a two handed weapon.

You usually have to drop resist for it - carry a trap box to break para and use remove curse a lot.

My theory was always "Anything to keep me alive, so I can keep fighting." You can never heal too many HPs.

I used Bandages (24/7), Close Wounds (Chiv, when there is time to), and Confidence (Bushido, when running) when necessary.
