Skills[edit]

When under the effect of Celestial Form, these skills replace the normal weapon skill bar. They can't be changed but can be upgraded through the use of traits. The same skills are used underwater, but utilize a point-blank area of effect instead of ground targeting.

Slot skills[edit]

While in Celestial Avatar form, glyph skills will have their standard effect replaced with an alternative function. The glyphs will give more healing and ally support effects compared to the glyph's standard function. The standard and Celestial forms of the glyphs also share cool downs with each other.
