Paladins: Purifications & Healing

This doesn't seem right... Note I'm playing 3.1.2 because I'm lazy and that's what's in my linux package manager

From the standard spellbooks:
CSW L11 9 mana
CMW L25 20 mana

From purifications:
CSW L17 15 mana
CMW L23 25 mana

Shouldn't the spells in the dungeon book be more mana efficient instead of less?

I don't have the numbers present, but the spells from purification heal more hitpoints iirc.

Are you sure? I thought the higher mana was to tell you to use the slot for something better such as potions of heroism. In any case, there is little reason to cast CSW, CCW, or CMW once you are proficient with heal.

I have looked it up - a 50 Level paladin gets

from Beginner's Handbook:
CLW 2 Mana heal 15%
from Chants and Blessings:
CSW 9 Mana heal 20%
from Exorcism and Dispelling:
Heal 28 Mana heal 35%
from Purifications and Healing:
CSW 15 Mana heal 20%
Cure Mortal Wounds 25 Mana heal 30%

Seams to be a little bit uneven.

As long as not all stats are sustained the restoration spell from Purifications is somewhat useful, but one would be better off to store it at home and free an inventory slot.

.
Heal is 35% of your total hitpoints, CxW is % from wounds.

Cure Mortal in Purifications 25 heal 30%
Cure Mortal in Chants and Blessings 20 heal 30%

That's off. Reversal is in order for paladins. Paladins don't seem to get bigger healing and rememberance (restore XP) from Purifications which priests get.

In contrast priest CSW from Words is 4 mana and Purifications 5 mana, CMW in Chants 11 mana and Purifications 7 mana. There CMW is cheaper, CSW is one point more expensive. You would need to swap CSW in there too, but CMW is OK.
