Area of effect or AoE in Sacred 2 refers to combat arts that exhibit the following characteristic:
- Capable of effecting any number of enemies (or allies) that are within its range.
Don't underestimate the parameter of equipment "combat arts radius +x%". For the typically small value of the bonus is hidden geometric trick: to increase the area of damage CA in 2 times it is sufficient to collect 39% bonus to increase; in 2,5 times - 58% bonus; which is three times as high as 74% bonus. Remember, area depends on the radius squared.
Non-area of Effect combat arts may sometimes be modified by combat art modification choices and turned into Area of Effect combat arts. Many Area of Effect combat arts also do damage over time as well.
