Channeled skill

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Frost Volley has a 0.5½ second charging phase and 2 second active phase, firing 5 shots.
Churning Earth has an active phase that inflicts crippled and end effect.

Channeled skills are a skill type that activate over a period of time. These skills can be spotted by a yellow activation bar that fills when the skill is activated. The thin portion of the activation indicates the charging portion while the wide bar indicates the active portion. Channeled skills can vary greatly on what happens during the charging phase, active phase, and end effect. For the active portion, the skill pulses periodically for the number of times indicated in the tooltip. Canceling a skill during the charging phase will cause the skill to go on a 4 second recharge while canceling during the active phase will put the skill on full cooldown. Some skills such as Meteor Shower and Churning Earth do not display the charging and active phases, but simply display the thin bar.
