How can you target an ally to perform a heal on them instead of yourself?

Being able to heal others depends on what spell you're using:

  • You can't heal others with Healing, Fast Healing, or Close Wounds: they're self-cast only.

  • You can get Healing Hands and Heal Other, which let you heal most targets (including followers). They work just like offensive spells: point and shoot.

  • You can also get Grand Healing, which is an area-of-effect heal. This heals everyone in the area of effect, though: including enemies. This is not targeted: it heals everyone within range of the caster.

And just to add, there are several places to buy the healing spells. You can talk to the court wizard in whiterun for example. He has a spell (healing hands I believe) that will heal your target. – JClaspill Nov 14 '11 at 17:05
