Cleave = downed kill?[edit]

I've always heard "cleave" as referring to a melee autoattack that can hit multiple targets at once (e.g., in I've never heard it applied to killing a downed target via damage before. 404notfound 08:06, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

i rewrote the page to refer to typical melee skills that affect up to 3 targets in front of the caster. perhaps a separate page could be used to organize skills that hit up to 5 targets that usually hit all around the caster Lumpy (talk) 07:05, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
Most melee attacks hit up to three foes. If it hits up to five foes, it is normally a point blank target area of effect attack (in other words, AoE centered on close range target), which are far fewer. Admittedly, this is quite a problematic property to list properly because so many skills have nigh unique functions when it comes to targetting. Mediggo (talk) 07:11, 8 June 2013 (UTC)


We need a cleave weapon, being the only profession that cannot at this time. Bring on the scythe!

That's one the worst problems of Necros, you must target everything; With my Warrior I can just use my skills and hit with no target, I can spread conditions (with sword) to multiple enemies easily. This is useful in WvW when fighting big amount of enemies (zerg), with Necro you only hit your target (excluding AoE skills) --NeHoMaR User NeHoMaR sig.jpg 08:04, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

do mobs and bosses cleave?[edit]

Do mobs and bosses cleave? Meaning are they always gonna hit close targets even if you don't have agro because of cleave?

necro auto attack[edit]

They added 2-target cleave to necro. Should this be added here? Even though the article says up to 3 targets. -- 18:31, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Would Double Strike also count as a two target cleave? To answer my own question, yes it counts. "up to 3" includes 2, so let's add the necro skill. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:58, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
