Disambig icon.png This article is about the elementalist mechanic. For the process that grants an additional infusion slot, see Attuned equipment.

An attunement is a special type of skill exclusive to the elementalist profession. These skills occupy the F1-F4 slots of the mechanic bar by default. There are four attunement skills in total, representing the elements of fire, water, air and earth. Functionality for these skills unlocks as players level. Attunements activate instantly and can be activated mid-cast. When one is activated, the previous attunement recharges for 10 seconds, while other attunements which are ready to use will recharge for 1.5 seconds. Both of these recharges can be reduced by the Elemental Enchantment trait.

Activating an attunement changes the first five skills on the skill bar. Each weapon type has a unique set of skills for each attunement. Elementalists' hands also become enveloped by an aura which identifies that character's attunement. Elementalists do not have a normal state of activity, they are always attuned to an element in any given situation, except when transformed.
