Elementalists can cast wards, which create a protected area around themselves and their allies. These wards have varying effects depending on which spell an Elementalist casts, including: increased protection from elemental damage, increased ability to evade melee attacks, and causing all enemies to move slower while within the ward. When an ally casts a ward, stay within its radius to gain the benefit of its protection. On the other hand, you will notice that when an enemy casts a ward, it is more difficult to defeat that enemy while it remains within the ward's radius.

A ward is a spell that affects a stationary area. Wards can have many different types of effect but are always defensive in nature.

Skill Type. A Ward spell is a type of spell that creates a long lasting, magical, area of effect centered at the caster's original position. The ward is visible as a glowing ring. In PvE, the color of the ring is red; in PvP, it is the color of the team. Elementalist wards provide protection or support for allies while other wards cause other effects as well.
