'''Area of Effect''' (AoE) skills affect a given area of the playfield, and not any one specific enemy; any enemy inside of the area will be affected by the skill. The affected area generally does not move over time, so aware players can move elsewhere to avoid the negative effects caused by the skill. In [[PvE]] play, henchmen and creatures now flee from AoE skills duethat to ando [[Game_updates/20051111|updatedamage onover November 10th 2005time]], but generally take several seconds of damage before fleeing. In [[PvP]] play, use such skills to clear a tactically important area of opponents so your team can take and exploit such a breach in the opposing team's defense.
Most AoEs require a target; however, some will take effect around the caster. This are called [[PBAoE]]s—point-blank area of effect.
