Resource cost

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Skills usable by players all have one or more costs associated with their use. These costs are intended to balance their effects by ultimately limiting how often they can be used. Many skill effects can adjust the amount of a cost or even remove it (however, these effects will have their own costs to manage).

  • Ranger and Mesmer are the only professions lacking an additional resource cost on any skill: all other professions have skills that use Adrenaline, Upkeep, Sacrifice, or Overcast.
