Enchantment spells provide beneficial magic to yourself or an ally. They may protect you from attacking or provide an increase in your abilities, such as increased speed or Energy. A small yellow upward arrow on a character's Health Bar indicates that an Enchantment Spell has been cast on that character. When you encounter an exceptionally difficult foe, it is wise to check for Enchantments on that foe and then remove them if possible.

Skill Type. An enchantment spell is a type of spell that creates a positive effect with a duration. Enchanted creatures can be easily identified by the cloudy white ring that orbits them. An upward-pointing yellow triangle will display on an affected creature's target display and on the party window's health bar of an affected party member. Active enchantments on your own character will be represented in the effects monitor by their respective skill icons. See the full list of enchantment spells.
- Always has a duration. Has a finite duration, with these exceptions:
- Always has a continuous and/or end effect; can also have an initial effect.
- Can target self, ally, or "other ally." The only exceptions are Aura of Displacement, Ice Spear, Magnetic Surge, and Vampiric Spirit, each of which targets a foe as a part of the user's enchantment.
- Casts within spell range, with the exception of Blood Ritual, which requires touch range.
- Always requires energy to activate. Can have an additional cost: overcast, sacrifice or upkeep.
- Always has an activation time and an aftercast delay, except for flash enchantments, which have neither. The shadow step Shadow Meld[verification requested] and PvE-only skill Dwarven Stability do not suffer an aftercast delay.

- When an enchantment is reapplied before expiring:
- If the current attribute rank would lower the values, the enchantment will continue at the higher values until the original enchantment expires.
