It should be noted that values shown below reflect the ability and/or morph once it is fully trained which sometimes differs from earlier costs, durations, or damage values. All costs and damage values shown below are without attribute points placed, without equipment, without passive skills and without champion points so it's easier to compare skills without concern for gear/build differences.

Remember that if a skill costs Magicka, it scales with your maximum Magicka while if a skill costs Stamina, it scales with your maximum Stamina. Synergies and Ultimate abilities scale based on your Magicka or Stamina, whichever is greater.
