Mantra

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Mantra is a type of skill shared by the Mesmer tango icon 20px.pngMesmer and Firebrand tango icon 20px.pngFirebrand classes. Players prepare a mantra they want to use (a 20.75¾ second cast time) which primes its activatable charges. Expending all of a mantra's charges will deactivate the mantra and place the skill on cooldown. While primed, a mantra will regenerate charges at a set rate. Mesmer mantras have two potent charges, while Firebrand mantras have up to three charges with an empowered final charge. Players can choose between expending their final charge or holding it to regenerate charges.

Multiple mantra skills can be prepared at the same time. Players may prepare mantras out of combat, and preparation does not expire.
