Elite skills are skills that have been specially designated by the designers as being more significant than non-elites. Players may only include one elite skill in their build, although under special circumstances, a skill bar might have several. Builds are often named after their elite skill, because that skill often prescribes many of the remaining skills, e.g. Crippling Shot Ranger or Panic Mesmer.

Elite skills are indicated in the skill bar by a golden border, and within the Skills and Attributes Panel with yellow text.

  1. There are four PvE-only elites:
  2. Warriors have one extra elite because Hundred Blades was originally a non-elite skill.
  3. Mesmers have one less elite because Mantra of Celerity was removed before Guild Wars was originally released.
  4. There are no profession-specific elite skills unique to Eye of the North. In order to capture elites in EotN regions, you must have access to the campaign the skill originates from.
