Disambig icon.png This article is about the effect. For the NPC, see Aura (NPC).

Auras are a type of effect that provide an irremovable buff, causing harm to foes and/or benefiting the user in some way when attacked. Elementalists have access to auras through different weapon skills, but auras can also be granted or improved by certain combos, traits, and upgrade components. Auras do not stack like boons do.
