Area of Effect skills (AOE for short) are attacks which can hit multiple targets within a region. These can be both hostile attacks and healing or buffs for your allies. There are 4 general shapes for an area of effect:

  • Circular - affects all targets within a certain radius of the caster
  • Target Area - affects all targets within a chosen circle at a distance from the caster
  • Conical - affects all targets within a conical area in front of the caster
  • Path - affects all targets in a rectangular area in front of the caster

Some skills may change from one type of area to another based on morphs. Some AOE skills are instantaneous, while others have longer duration. A list of skills with AOE is below. (Note that this does not include Multiple Target skills, which are different in that they must be used on a single target and may affect other nearby targets as well. AOE skills can be cast without a specific target.)
