Targeting - Aetolia Online Help

13.1.1 Targeting

With a few exceptions, all attacks will be used in conjunction with a target of your choice. The syntax for using each of your abilities will be listed in the specific AB <skill> <skillname> file. 

Many weapon abilities also work with applying special enhancements or venoms beforehand, which will be applied after using the attack skill against your target. These effects can be applied to the weapon ahead of time, or by appending the attack.

The in-line targeting system permits you to append most weapon attacks with additional effects. 
         
         <attack> <effect1> <effect2> <bodypart/nothing> <bodypart/nothing>

Using 'nothing' or 'all' in place of a bodypart targets nothing. Templars may also use the in-line targeting syntax with their Bladefire empowerments. 

Example: DSK <target> CURARE ACONITE LEFT ARM RIGHT ARM

         - or - 
         
         ENVENOM LEFT WITH CURARE
         ENVENOM RIGHT WITH ACONITE
         TARGET LEFT ARM WITH LEFT
         TARGET RIGHT ARM WITH RIGHT
         DSK <target>
