Casting Symbol

From GuildWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
A typical casting symbol of an Elementalist using Fire Magic.

The Casting Symbol is an animated symbol that appears when a character uses a skill. Typically, casting symbols are animated such that they last for the full duration of the skill's activation, although there are exceptions where it appears only at the end of activation. Not all skills have casting symbols — for example, most Attack skills, while they do have other forms of animation, do not generally have any recognizable symbols as part of that animation.

Spells[edit | edit source]

Casting symbols for Spells are generally shared among all spells of a certain attribute. There are a few spells that use the incorrect symbol, such as Life Attunement, a Protection Prayers spell that uses the Healing Prayers symbol. There are also some spells that have unique casting symbols, shown in the next section.

Skills that affect both Player and Pet[edit | edit source]

A few pet-related skills that buff both the player and pet have symbols. Never Rampage Alone, Rampage as One, and Run as One all start with the "two paws" symbol, which come together to form either the "paw and arrow" or "paw and foot" symbols.

Other skills[edit | edit source]

Most other skill types do not have a casting symbol, although many of them do have animations around the character or the character's weapon. Still, there are exceptions in these categories as well.
