*The target is high level. This is because a character's maximum health increases with their level.
*The caster uses skills such as [[Demonic Flesh]] or [[Endure Pain]] to raise their maximum health temporarily, which corresponds to a temporary increase in gainable health.
 
*The target is high level. This is simply because a character's maximum health increases with their level.
 
*The caster has no death penalty (or, even better, maximum morale boost).
 
*This skill works extraordinarily well on bosses such as [[Kuunavang]] or [[Glint]], as their maximum health is often very high.
 
*You can sacrifice yourself to near-death, while using [[Divine Intervention]] (or the smiting variant) to be able to start of with this skill at its maximum usage.
