The Kurzick and Luxon skills are nearly duplicate skills. The only differences between each pair of skills are the linked title and icons. Both versions share the same name, and, unlike other duplicates skills, a player cannot have both versions on their skillbar at the same time.


Prior to the September 13, 2012 update, there were four additional Elementalist duplicate skill pairs but the skill definitions diverged.
