— In-game description [?]


  • The effect Charge increases damage by 25% in PvE and PvP and by 10% in WvW.
This is a targeted skill despite it not having any effect on enemies, and serves as an attack for the purposes of targeting: Using this skill while targeting a neutral or hostile creature will initiate auto-attack if the user is at sufficient range, and having the option Promote Skill Target turned on will lock the target if autotargeting is used.
