Cone Attack

Cone Attack

Some monster abilities will hit multiple characters, so long as they are in front of the mob. "In front" generally means the 45° arc in the direction the mob is facing, although this can vary, along with the length of the cone, depending on the monster and ability being used. If the ability does damage, the targets will take less damage the further they are from the middle of the cone.

Some of these abilities fall into categories frequently called "Breath" or "Gaze" by NA players. Gaze attacks are denoted below with a *, and can be avoided by turning one's back on the monster before it uses the ability.

See also, Area of Effect, for more information about cone attacks and other AoE types.
