A doublecast skill is a new type of spell that casts on you as well as your target. By utilizing proper positioning, skilled players can significantly increase the power level of these skills as well as the area that they cover. Many of these skills were reworked because they were too unwieldy to play normally due to conditionals or poor synergies with other skills. In the case of Mirror of Ice, the skill was providing too much power in PvP without being useful in PvE.
A doublecast skill is a type of Enchantment spell unique to the elementalist profession which can be cast on an ally and has effect on both the ally and the caster. Each of the doublecast skills belong to a different attribute among the five elementalist attributes. All skills based on an elemental attribute cause related damage to foes adjacent or near both the target ally and the caster.
Skills in the subtype have the following features in common:
- They can target a non-spirit ally (or the caster) or foe.
- They have an on-application benefit.
- They are elite skills.
