I was really hoping this was a bug that would have been fixed.
I am really hoping it not a feature.
I am confused, it wasn't included in the patch notes but you expected it to be fixed anyway? Also, if you don't like it, don't have your characters do it. Someone else making Gale a healbot has no effect on your game. Personally, I agree that it shouldn't be there, but it is and it's really irrelevant so I don't need resources spent to "fix" it.
