What's a Cantrip?[edit]

Just speculating since Anet hasn't said anything yet, but Lightning Flash is able to be cast midcast of another skill. Possible that cantrips are the equivalent to Flash enchantment spell? Ptarmigan 18:41, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

A cantrip is a witch's spell. It can also be a mischievous or playful act., merriam-webster, free dictionary. Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 09:50, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
It seems that a lot of "generic" skill types have been given profession specific names. Elementalists have cantrips, necromancers have spectrals, thieves have tricks, guardians have meditations, etc. This is probably for better categorization when dealing with things like traits. --Gandlethorpe 10:16, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
