Yesterday I joined a mithra on some mob grinding for 2 hours. I wanted to test out the heal spell called sacrifice. I stood to the right side of her and casted the spell. The spell only landed on me. The next time, I stood behind her and used the spell. This time it worked. I faced opposite of her with the monster in between us, it also worked. This lead to my conclusion that thaum's heal is a cone-shape which means it is a bad idea to use it on another member since it wont hit anyone else due to cone-shape.

Conjurer's cure is not cone-shape, its a small circle radius around where it is casted.

I can't confirm that, but Thaumaturge attack spells are conal. I don't know about buffs. I was under the impression from others that spells like Sacrifice worked more like Conjurer spells.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

I believe that all spells cast by a Conjurer will be radial AoE, even if they are Thaumaturge spells. The inverse may also be true; Conjury spells cast by a Thaumaturge will likely be conal AoE. I don't have proof, however.
