Barrier is a combat mechanic introduced in the Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire expansion. It creates a health barrier that takes damage prior to the health bar. The barrier decays after a set period of time, and the amount generated is based on the source's healing power. It is capped at 50% of the recipient's maximum health.

Similar to healing, the barrier total a skill applies can be calculated using the following formula:

(Coefficient * Healing Power) + Base Value
