removal of pointless, opinionated note[edit]

" This is an exellent opening move since everyone will be casting thier first spell or skill at about the same time. " .... In what context ? I'm not sure this is correct for even any context, let alone worthy of being on the Wiki page. Proposing removal. --ChronicinabilitY User Chronicinability Spiteful Spirit.jpg 04:58, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

I suppose the guy who added it was talking about spike builds... (also a minor typo... 'exCellent', I'll fix it)
IMO, it could use a recharge buff. Maybe 2 or 5 seconds, the fact that it's 15 energy means it's already costly, spamming it isn't an option (it can screw up a spike build enough with a low recharge, so it'd be a great help in HA and even make Mesmers wanted again, perhaps)...
The same idea as how Spiritual Pain works. Cast it alot and hurt your foes badly, but with a very high energy cost.Saphatorael 18:36, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Skill update request[edit]

5 energy please, 10 sec rec, limit range. Readem (talk*gwwcontribs) 23:17, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

5 energy, 10 sec recharge interrupting everyone would be uber-IMBA! possibly a drop to 10 energy with current numbers but no more. It's already an extremely powerfull skill!--ChronicinabilitY User Chronicinability Spiteful Spirit.jpg 23:21, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
In several years retrospect, this was an extremely stupid comment lol. Then again, CoF may have been different...I forget if it has received a buff since 2007. --Readem 06:52, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
Ok, it wasn't great, but certainly not deserving a buff like that lol --Readem 06:53, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
Unused doesnt = Unbalanced 10:08, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
unused totally = unbalanced. If no one uses a skill it means it sucks *COUGH Mind Burn COUGH* Anyways, now that the cost is a bit lower, it might see some actual human use instead of just on monsters. =) Silavor UserSilavorSigIcon.png 23:36, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
On this one I have to agreed with Silavor, the only reason I wasnt using this skill before, it was just the fact that it was a 15 energy cost to interrupt, the function is not that good, there were others better but now at 10, I can see it as a staple from now on since its a solid counter against any type of skill.--ShadowFog 12:10, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Page says Tohn offers this skill. I don't think he does. 14:20, 7 September 2008 (UTC) He doesn'tAnanzi 16:45, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

CoF Spike[edit]

This would be EPIC! ~~ User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (talk · contributions) 21:07, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Right. It'd only take a full minute of the enemy standing there in one place getting interrupted before they'd die. I can't possibly see how they could get out of that...
That's why he said it would be epic-- 05:48, 10 December 2008 (UTC)


As far as I know, every time your character is interrupted, regarding cause of this skill or not, screams "#$%#!!". I don't see the need of it staying there. What do you guys/gals think? --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 11:01, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

They should change it to say the "f" word or the other word "$^It" since there is already an option to turn on/off the words to censored.--ShadowFog 12:52, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

I think its relevant enough to stay there. --Norrukki User Norrukki SigIcon.png 17:24, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

I like how it screams %$%@$! when you get interrupted, it so realistic! Final Abomination 03:29, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Especially when it's something like a Torment Claw with no visible means of speaking, or a means of learning expletives.


Removed Leech Signet from the Related list and added Tease. Tease is an AoE interupt, like Cry of Pain and Cry of Frustration. Leech Signet pays back energy, deals no damage and is only related in that it interupts. You can change it or protest the change if you want, though. 19:04, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Cry of Pain is not AOE interrupt, but is related in the fact it does AOE damage from interrupting.--Norrukki User Norrukki SigIcon.png 00:51, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I could be wrong.[edit]

but shouldn't it say interrupt any action? as of now it says skill and it can interrupt anything including if your just swinging your sword. i never used it but that's what the notes say Materia user 21:03, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

tested on the weakeness dude on isle of nameless. Neither CoF or Tease(similar skill) interupted his basic attacks on me. Rewording the tag saying it does on the note because, this will interupt basic attacks with its aoe interupt, however usefull that can be...Justice 07:53, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Concise description[edit] got it right the first time, it seems. 07:32, 16 April 2010 (UTC)


Well, i reverted him, and he repaid the favor. Lets get an opinion from the crowd. Keep the trivia about the #%$#@ thing? Sonic Saturday User Da Sonic Sig2.png 16:36, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

I say keep the #%$#@ thing! Roflmaomgz 22:58, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, it's unique and kinda fun. Cirian 10:27, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Keep it, it doesnt do any harm DemonicFahrir 12:04, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
Noticed that the monk Azure Shadow says "!!" isntead of "#%$#@" as per usual. I suspect that it is true for all Nightmares (atleast the Nightmare bosses scream "!!"), but I haven't tested anything. -- 19:10, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
EDIT: is true for the Breeze Keepers as well. Might be true for everything non-human?
EDIT #2: probably something wrong with my settings/computer. It does the same for both White-Mantle and Mursaat.

Suggested Change[edit]

Cry of Frustration - Spell. If target foe is using a skill, that foe and all foes in the area are interrupted and cannot use skills for 0...1...2 second(s).

Would make more sense than damage, since for a couple of seconds they would not be able to concentrate enough to use skills, a sort of "What the crap just happened" moment. Furry psyfox 17:57, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

If you want ANet to consider this, why not create a formal suggestion? e.g. at Feedback:User/Furry psyfox/Cry of Frustration disable instead of damage. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 18:15, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
Very good reason for that, and that is because I'm not a wikimaniac I didn't know Furry psyfox 17:20, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
