Does Lucky Jack get a heal? He is a privateer and his will suggests he'd have a decent heal. I know KI gave Bonnie Anne a heal, but frankly a musketeer's will is pretty low and her heal is not very good, if you wanted to give the ability to heal to a companion that everyone gets Bonnie Anne is fine if you boost her Will to start with and it increases as she levels, but Old Scratch of one of the Bisons, or the Hen Nurse would be better than Bonnie Anne.

Now back to Lucky Jack Russell, I would like to know why he doesnt have rouse and later a group heal? He is a privateer after all.

Bonnie Anne's heal does not depend on her Will at all, only on how wounded her target is.

As for Lucky Jack, do keep in mind that just because a player Privateer has an ability does not mean that your companions will have it; and conversely just because your companion has an ability (say, Relentless...) does not mean that a player of the same class will get it.

Bonnie's heal isn't based on her will or any other stat. The amount it heals is based on the amount of damage the receiving unit has taken. It isn't supposed to be a huge heal, just a bonus for emergencies.

Yeah, Bonus is right, lol. Bonnie's healing spell is really pitiful compared to a normal Rouse spell anyone can get through a piece of equipment. Having Bonnie heal companions with a sliver of health is a waste, she can't even heal them back to green from red. It's better to just use her damage than waste a turn healing.
