Cure spell is rather weak in terms of recovering units' hit points. Even with expert Water Magic and spell power of 20, the effect is only 130 hit points. However, the power of Cure spell lies within its dispelling properties. Cure spell can remove any negative spell effects or effects caused by creatures' special abilities (e.g. paralyze), except for effects of the Disrupting Ray spell. Using expert Cure instead of expert Dispel removes all negative effects from allied troops, leaving all negative effects on enemy troops and all positive effects on allied troops intact.
