Charge skill

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Charge skills are a skill type that become more powerful the longer the skill is held activated. A charge skill is indicated by a yellow circle around the skill number on the skill bar. Most charge skills are available only through auxiliary skill bars, such as bundles or various forms.

Charge skills either provide a continuous effect or effect on release, and have at least two levels of charge. Charge skills with continuous effect activate immediately, similarly to channeled skills, and will execute for longer if the skill is held down. Charge skills which are activated on release can be charged up to four levels (depending on skill) and executed at any level of charging.
