Medic is one of the eight Operator classes in Arknights.

Overview

Instead of attacking enemies, Medics restore the HP of friendly units, making their use indispensable to keep friendlies on the field and gives them more time to hold the line. Medics restore HP equal to their ATK.

Because most Medics are incapable of attacking enemies and have low HP and DEF, Medics should be kept safe from ranged enemies, who can and will attack them.

Branches

The Medic class is divided into four branches: Medic[sic], Multi-target, Therapist, and Wandering.

Medic

Medic Medics[sic]; the Arknights Wiki will use "Medical Medics" instead to avoid redundancy (Chinese: 医师; Pinyin: Yīshī; lit. "Physician/Doctor [Medic]"), formerly known as ST (Single-Target) Medics, heal one target at a time. Their raw healing output is usually superior to that of other Medics.

Multi-target

Multi-target Medics (Chinese: 群愈师; Pinyin: Qún yù shī; lit. "Group/Mass-healing [Medic]"), formerly known as AoE (Area-of-Effect) Medics, heal up to three targets simultaneously within an adjusted range that may make them easier or harder to be positioned depending on the operation's layout. Their raw healing output on any given target is inferior to that of Medical Medics.

Therapist

Therapist Medics (Chinese: 疗养师; Pinyin: Liáoyǎng shī; lit. "Therapist [Medic]"), formerly known as Wide-Range Medics, have a wide healing range at the expense of below average ATK that is reduced to 80% when healing further targets and having the highest DP cost of all Medics. Their RES is also superior to that of other Medics.

While more trickier to use than Medic Medics, Therapist Medics can be useful in certain situations due to their healing range and affinity of applying the Status Resistance buff when healing friendlies.

Wandering

Wandering Medics (Chinese: 行医; Pinyin: Xíngyī; lit. "Practician [Medic]") are similar to Medical Medics, but are capable of removing Elemental Damage build-ups suffered by friendlies when healing friendlies, even if the target's HP is full, and has a wider healing range (though not to the same degree as Therapist Medics).

Trivia

  • Prior to her reintroduction in the second anniversary of Arknights, Kal'tsit is available in the beta versions of Arknights, but she was seen as overpowered at the time and are cut at the game's release version (see Kal'tsit's trivia page for further details).
  • In the Chinese community, the Medics are often nicknamed “奶妈” or “奶", which literally means 'Wet Nurse' or 'Grandma'.
