This includes Targeted AoEs that employ a targeted entity to affect others around them (such as M30 Grenade from Assault Rifle or Power of the Phoenix from Thermal Radiation), Location AoEs that focus on a targeted spot (such as Tar Patch from Dark Miasma or Spirit Tree from Plant Control), and Point Blank AoEs that use the caster of the power as the center of the Area of Effect (such as Steamy Mist from Storm Summoning or Nova from Energy Blast).
