Within the context of Guild Wars, punishment refers to the infliction of negative consequences, figurative penalties, for a foe's actions. For example Power Spike, Backfire, Mark of Subversion and Concussion Shot punish the use of spells, while Clumsiness, Bane Signet and Images of Remorse punish attacks. Other skills can punish, among other things, signet use, movement, healing, blocking and inaction. Punishment is a major focus of the Domination Magic attribute, however all professions and many attributes have some punishment skills. In PvE, punishment skills are used almost exclusively to inflict their penalties, while in PvP, they are also useful to manipulate opponents towards or away from certain actions.
