Does the animal companion's Share Spells feature allow a druid/ranger who has fast healing to share it with their animal companion?

  • \$\begingroup\$ What is "Fast Heal"? \$\endgroup\$ – Oblivious Sage Mar 17 '18 at 0:29
  • \$\begingroup\$ Is this for a druid? If so, you can edit your question to link to the druid's Share Spells ability, to the Fast Heal SRD entry (or book & page, if it's not in the SRD), add the [druid] tag (and the [spells][animal-companions] tags), and we can get this unheld and ready for answering. If it's not a druid, please edit with the necessary information. \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Mar 17 '18 at 0:29
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes for a Druid or Hunter that has Fast Healing and an animal companion. Do they share it Healing properties with spell share? \$\endgroup\$ – Jhyarelle Silver Mar 17 '18 at 1:10

No, fast healing is not shared with animal companions.

From the PFSRD, on Share Spells (emphasis mine):

The druid may cast a spell with a target of “You” on her animal companion (as a touch range spell) instead of on herself. A druid may cast spells on her animal companion even if the spells normally do not affect creatures of the companion’s type (animal). Spells cast in this way must come from a class that grants an animal companion. This ability does not allow the animal to share abilities that are not spells, even if they function like spells.

Share Spells only works for spells (not spell-like abilities or anything else) that 1) have a range of "You"/"Self"/"Personal" (i.e. spells that can normally only target the caster), and 2) come from a class that grants an animal companion.

If you're getting fast healing from a self-only druid/hunter/ranger spell, then you can also cast that spell on your companion. If you have fast healing from any other source then you cannot give it to or share it with your animal companion via Share Spells.
