Echo of Light is a passive skill from the World of WarCraft. When directly healing an ally, the target will heal an extra 10% over a brief period of time (or in RPG Maker MV’s case, a few extra turns). Here’s how to recreate this effect in RPG Maker MV!

Place the following code in the Echo of Light Passive state. Change the values to fit your game’s settings.
<Custom Establish Effect>
// Check if the action deals HP healing and the target is alive.
if (this.isHpEffect() && target.result().hpDamage < 0 && target.isAlive()) {
  // Add the Echo of Healing state.
  // Calculate 20% of the amount healed.
  var healing = Math.abs(Math.ceil(target.result().hpDamage * 0.20));
  // Default the echo healing total to 0.
  target._echoHealing = target._echoHealing || 0;
  // Add the healing amount to the echo healing total.
  target._echoHealing += healing;
</Custom Establish Effect>
Place the following code in the Echo Healing state. Change the values to fit your game’s settings.
<Custom Regenerate Effect>
// Default echo healing to 0.
user._echoHealing = user._echoHealing || 0;
// Check if the user is alive and the echo healing value is greater than 0.
if (user.isAlive() && user._echoHealing > 0) {
  // Get the number of turns left for the state.
  var turns = Math.max(1, user.stateTurns(stateId));
  // Calculate the amount of healing to be done.
  var dmg = Math.ceil(user._echoHealing / turns);
  // Decrease the total echo healing amount.
  user._echoHealing -= dmg;
  // Have the user gain HP.
  // Show an animation.
  // Start the damage popup.
  // Clear the result.
  // Check if the user is dead.
  if (user.isDead()) {
    // Perform a collapse.
</Custom Regenerate Effect>

<Custom Remove Effect>
// Reset the echo healing amount.
user._echoHealing = 0;
</Custom Remove Effect>
