I have a drow in my party that doesn't have a lot of HP. When she's unconscious and bleeding out, I am having trouble stabilizing her—her spell resistance is still active, and I only have a +6 to heal checks so non-magical stabilizing is failure-prone. What's the best way to handle this as a druid with no other healers in the party?
Some options I've thought about:
- spend a feat in spell penetration—this might not be the worst idea ever, but it would only reduce my failure rate to 40% assuming even levels
- put a bunch more skill points in Heal—seems wasteful, since this seems like the only place I would be using it, and I don't really have skill points to spare
- cram potions down her throat—spell resistance still applies, right?
- just let the foul drow die
Note that we are still level 1*, so I am looking for low-level options that I can work towards over the next couple of levels.
* To forestall objections, the +2 LA for the drow has been houseruled away since it's an above-ground campaign. So hopefully once she gains some HP she will be more of an asset to the party…
