Most AoEs require a target; however, some will take effect around the caster. This are called [[PBAoE]]s—point-blank area of effect.
== Ranges ==
To tell how large the AoE of a certain spell is, check the skill description wording and compare the range to the [[aggro]] circle:
*[[Nature Ritual]] ("Spirit") Range: approx 200 ft
*[[Longbow]] Range = 167 ft
*[[Aggro]] circle = 88 ft
*Spell Target Range = 88 ft
*[[Shout]] Range = 39 ft
*"[[in the area]] / location" = 26 ft
*"[[near]] / [[nearby]]" = 20 ft
*"[[adjacent]]" = 13 ft
*[[Melee]] / [[Touch]] Range = 2 ft
''Note: Ranges on the minimap are '''approximate''' as the distances are measured 3-dimensional, whereas the map is 2-dimensional. Furthermore user tests have shown that ranges often differ depending on the used skill.''
