Notes[edit]

  • A skill that renews itself becomes the newest effect in the effects monitor when its renewal effect triggers, which can make enchantments and hexes that can renew themselves difficult to cover.
  • Refrains always renew whenever a chant or shout ends on the affected target.
  • Illusion of Pain (PvP) ends if reapplied.
  • The term renew is also associated with energy gain, instant recharge, and/or an end effect.
