Flanking

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Positions around a foe that count as flanking. The target is facing to the right, only the 90 degree cone in front of it does not allow flanking.

Flanking refers to positioning oneself behind or to the side of a target, where they are more vulnerable to attacks and where the attacker is in a relatively safer position. A flanking attack is one made from a flanking position.

Some skills place the attacker in a flanking position, while other skills and traits grant additional effects or bonuses when used while flanking a target.
