'Heal as One' heals my level 44 human ranger and pet for 723 health and recharges in 20 seconds. 'Prayer to Dwayna' heals for 712 (11 less), only heals myself, cannot be used underwater and recharges in 30 seconds (a 10 seconds longer wait).

Why anyone would use 'Prayer to Dwayna' over 'Heal as One'. It's a weaker skill in everyway and certainly not worth the investment in skill points! or am I missing something here? I suggest we report this skill as a bug inside the game.

Working as intended, unfortunately.

Racial skills are meant to be weaker. So it is working as intended,though this is one of the more extreme cases.

All classes do not have "Heal as one", so maybe a different class playing a Human this would benefit from this more.

This. Thieves have particularly weak healing, so I've seen a few running with prayer to dwayna.

If anything, one of the things I'm annoyed by is:

Spirit of Nature Elite vs Oakheart Elite.

I didn't consider this.

I think one of them is instant and the other one is regen over time i think ?. Still regen over time is more manageable than a life saver imho

^Basically this.

As a Charr Guardian I get acces to Shrapnell-mine, something that would normally be associated with Engineers. In this case, it could be a nice addition.
As a Sylvari Ranger I get acces to Healing Seed, which is basically a worse version of Healing Trap.

Racials add flavor and potentionally add things you wouldn't be able to do otherwise. Overall they are weaker version of profession skills.

Prayer to Kormir is a weaker version of a profession skill? OK, bro

racials are more of flavor skills that are (in most cases) supposed to be weaker than their profession counterparts.

although when I eventually roll a mesmer I might use a racial because from what I've been reading I'm not a huge fan of their elites as a profession.
