'''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. Area of effect skills can affect all valid targets within the horizontal radius regardless of barriers or altitude.
In [[PvE]], since the [[Game updates/20051110|2005/11/10 update]], henchmen and creatures flee from AoE skills that do [[damage over time]], but generally take 2-3 seconds of damage before fleeing. There are some few exceptions that are not recognized by the [[AI]], for example [[Spiteful Spirit]].
