How to Use Heal Counter

First, you select the art, and then once you press it, there will be a yellow box around the portraits of one of your party on the right side. Select a party member to heal using the up and down arrows, then press A to cast a barrier around that party member.

Any attacks done to that party member for the duration of the shield will add to their health rather than reduce it.

Use this skill for tanks who are constantly being attacked by enemies to return the health they lose from tanking their hits.

We do not recommend leveling up Heal Counter

Do to its somewhat niche nature or lack of utility, we do not recommend setting or investing AP into this Art. Generally speaking, your AP will better be spent on Sharla's other Arts. However, there are some builds that may make use of this Art, so only if you are running one of those should you invest your AP here.
