- Looking for Paladin auras?
An aura is a type of area of effect (AoE) spell.
Auras have four basic characteristics:
- They are AoE spells, based on the position of the caster, otherwise known as point blank area of effect (PBAoE) spells.
- They are instant cast, and have no cooldown.
- They have an infinite duration, as long as the affected target is within range of the caster, and the caster is alive.
- They are not dispellable.
Except Paladins' aura, which also affects raid, each of these auras are party only.
