Skill nomenclature

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The names of many skills follow a predictable pattern. This skill nomenclature allows players to get an idea of a skill's effects or damage type from the name. This article ignores obvious synonyms, e.g. that Furious Axe is an axe-related skill.

Universal[edit]

These keywords are always associated with a particular skill or damage type:

Weapon skills Keyword

Bows and Marksmanship Fire

Indirect relation[edit]

Most keywords are more artfully than literally connected to their effects.

  • The list works in terms of keywords and the effects that they're bound to, not the reverse, because no effect is bound to any one keyword.
  • Some keywords are homonyms: there is more than one regular application for the same term. Sometimes the skill's profession is a clue as to which one is being used. (For example, the keyword "renew" does not refer to the technical term renewal used in concise descriptions.)
