Area of Effect

In Wakfu the way in which a spell can be performed is directly influenced by it's Area of Effect. The Area of Effect (often abbreviated to AoE) commandeers as to how far a spell can have it's default effect(s). These AoEs are often categorised into 7 different shapes; Square, Cross, Line, Ring, Circle, T-Shaped, and Unique. The size of one of these shapes is often referred to the Range which is the direct path in which a spell can cause it's damage - expressed as it's maximum.

[edit] Cross

This shape, as the name would denote, forms the shape of a cross, where the AoE moves outwards along the vertical and horizontal axis in equal amount. An increase in size will change the length in which the axis spreads.

[edit] Circle

This shape spreads evenly out in all directions and thus increasing the size of this shape will increase the area that is effects (or it's radius). A 1-Cross circle looks similar to a 1-Cell cross however as it increases it becomes more diamond shaped. Despite this however, it's classified as circular.

[edit] Square

This shape spreads in all directions from the user. Increasing the range will increase the size of the shape further.

[edit] Line

The line shape comes in two different variations. One covers the left and right side of the user, and the other only casts to the immediate square infront of the user.

[edit] Across

This shape spreads perpendicular to the user to the direction that it was cast. Increasing the range will increase the 'width' of the shape.

[edit] Along

This spreads along the direction that the spell was cast in, however can only be casted in the direction away from the user. Increasing the range will increase the 'length' of the shape.

[edit] Ring

This spreads in all directions from the caster. The shape shown is the minimum range of the shape, anything below the range will not be effected. Increasing the range will increase the size of the shape.

[edit] T-Shape

T-shape extends out in 3 directions from the caster. Depeding on the spell the shape of the 'T' can change direction. Increasing the range will increase the size of the shape. It has the appearance of the 'cross' shape, without one of the arms.

[edit] Unique

Some spells and attacks have a shape that's entirely unique to them.
