This suggestion is part of my overarching Skill Rebalance Project.

Basic Concept[edit]

The premise of this suggestion is that there are a variety of ways to improve basic attacks in Guild Wars. Between weapon upgrades, Conjures (enchantments), Weapon Spells, preparations, some flash enchantments, a dozen Assassin enchantments, a shout (?!), orders and some stances, there are far too many ways to improve auto attacks. Thus, this proposal condenses all passive abilities that explicitly affect autoattacks into two types: preparations (for martially-themed bonuses) and weapon spells (for magically-themed bonuses). This page also includes on skills that can remove preparations or weapon spells.

A single character can only be under the effects one preparation and one weapon spell at any time. New weapon effects overwrite old ones.
