Area of Effect
Area of Effect is the area in which skill effects apply to allies or foes - occasionally both.
Description[edit | edit source]
All affected characters receive the same intensity of the effect regardless of how close they are to the center.
Varieties[edit | edit source]
There are several distinct types of AoE ability. Some skills may exhibit multiple of these properties.
- Projectiles are attacks which will only effect the first enemy hit by the AoE, sometimes chaining to other targets.
- Cleaves are attacks which hit multiple enemies in front of the user.
- Point-Blank AoE skills are centered on the character casting them.
- Ranged AoE skills are centered on either a specific enemy or location.
- Relocating AoE skills are not limited to their initial area. Some 'march' forwards from where they were cast, and others will wander around randomly.
