Wall of Elements creates a path of elemental damage that will affect all enemies within its range. That damage will be either Fire Damage, Frost Damage, or Shock Damage depending on the type of staff you have equipped. The name changes based on the staff type as well:

  • ON-icon-skill-Destruction Staff-Wall of Fire.png Wall of Fire deals extra damage to enemies with the Burning status.
  • ON-icon-skill-Destruction Staff-Wall of Frost.png Wall of Frost reduces enemy movement speed, and Immobilizes targets with the Chilled status.
  • ON-icon-skill-Destruction Staff-Wall of Storms.png Wall of Storms sets off-balance targets with the Concussed status.

The Unstable Wall of Elements morph:

  • ON-icon-skill-Destruction Staff-Unstable Wall of Fire.png Unstable Wall of Fire
  • ON-icon-skill-Destruction Staff-Unstable Wall of Frost.png Unstable Wall of Frost
  • ON-icon-skill-Destruction Staff-Unstable Wall of Storms.png Unstable Wall of Storms

deals additional damage to all nearby enemies when the effect ends, while the Elemental Blockade morph:

  • ON-icon-skill-Destruction Staff-Blockade of Fire.png Blockade of Fire
  • ON-icon-skill-Destruction Staff-Blockade of Frost.png Blockade of Frost
  • ON-icon-skill-Destruction Staff-Blockade of Storms.png Blockade of Storms

increases the size and duration of the effect.

Notes[edit]

  • The area of effect is a long rectangular path in front of the caster. This makes it particularly effective for melee-based enemies who tend to run directly at you. Casting in a narrow hallway or other constrained space is a good strategy, as there is almost no chance of them avoiding the affected area.
  • Only one Wall of Elements may be active at a time. Casting a second one will cause the first to expire early. This is particularly of note if using the Unstable Wall of Elements morph, as the explosion for the first casting will not occur if the spell is overridden in this way.
  • Elemental Blockade is a recommended morph for the Gleaming Champion and Beast Caller builds.
