Sequence skill

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Sequence skills are skills which, once activated, change into another skill for additional effect. This effectively gives characters multiple skills at the cost of just one skill slot on their skill bar. Skills with sequence include skills with single, additional sequence, such as Summon Bone Minions‎, as well as chains like Sever Artery.

The main difference between chains and sequence skills is that a chain is interrupted if the player uses another skill in the middle of chain, or is interrupted by an effect such as being knocked down, stunned, etc. Sequence skills, once activated, can have their second effect triggered at any time the player is able to do so. Sequence skills also have just one step after first sequence, whereas chains have a total of three steps.
