Symbol

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A symbol is a marked effect that guardians can place on the ground. It lingers for a few seconds, where upon creation and with every pulse, it inflicts damage to enemies and delivers a boon to allies that stand on it. All symbols are light fields.

Notes[edit]

  • All symbols except for Symbol of Punishment apply their effects once upon activation and pulse once per second thereafter. A 4-second symbol will pulse its effect 5 times.
  • With the July 26, 2016 game update, all of guardian's main-hand and two-handed weapons (and therefore all possible terrestrial weapon combinations) include 1 symbol skill.
