Do You Know How to AoE?
There are seven - count 'em, seven! - types of Area of Effect (AoE) spells in Dungeons & Dragons Online? DDO @ TenTonHammer's spellcasting expert, Lyle Vertigo, does. He also knows a few tricks about spellcasting efficiency and proper positioning. Fortunately, he's willing to share the wealth!
Keep in mind that some enemies have a greater degree of artificial intelligence (AI). Some animals, especially humanoids, will switch attention to those who deal the most damage. If you hit a large group for enough damage they will come after you! As a nuker, it’s your job to deal as much damage to as many monsters as possible, but also to know your position and never put yourself in a situation you can’t back out of.
