  • This skill was replaced with Signet of Humility with the June 23, 2015 game update.
  • Causes the Morphed effect.
  • Can be dodged and blocked.
  • A successful cast will end any forms in use by an enemy such as Tornado or Lich Form, and destroy all necromancer minions (except Jagged Horrors).
  • You can practice the morphed skill set in the Heart of the Mists, the Mesmer training NPC will cast it on you in battle.
  • In sPvP, it will not interrupt an enemy's finisher. The target will change form and their finisher animation will disappear, but the finishing skill itself will not be interrupted.
  • Polymorph Moa can make certain NPC enemies much more dangerous, especially those of elite or higher rank, by giving them a set of skills with much shorter recharges and greater damage coefficients than their own, which greatly increases their damage.


  • Polymorph Tuna and Polymorpha Moa are the only player transform skills that affect other players, instead of the caster.
