Song of Days Past is a set for Healers in the game. The 2-piece set provides a +15% Healing Bonus. The 4-piece set creates the Yearning effect for 6s when the user heals another character – which records the total amount of healing provided (including overflow healing). When the duration expires, the Yearning effect will be transformed into the Waves of Days Past effect: When your active party member hits an opponent with an attack, the DMG dealt will be increased by 8% of the total healing amount recorded by the Yearning effect.

 A single instance of the Yearning effect can record up to 15,000 healing
