quarague is on a distinguished road
In angband this is the key differences between the heal spell and the lesser healing spells. Heal acts as a percentage of your total health, whereas all the other ones act on a percentage of your wounds. Thus the lesser spells/potions become useless late game. IIRC this was done on purpose to avoid people spamming Cure light wounds spells/ potions in the final fights because these are available almost unlimited whereas the use of heal is limited by the number of potions you found or the amount of mana you have.
