DAoC Realm Ability Examples

With the speculation of "Active" Realm Abilities comming to Warhammer, I figured I'd post the below. These are current  active Realm Abilities in DAoC.  These are all purchasable through use of your "Realm Points" which could be compared to your Renown Points.  Please also keep in mind that each are not simply 1 point, and you may be able to buy them in tiers similar to Warhammer. Obviously these are just an example of some possibilities that could arise with such a system in place.  These can all also be found here and here.

Active 3 min Heals the user. Can not be used in combat
