So I have about a dozen icon choices for the "Assist" skill type. These are skills are usually auras that benefit adjacent allies in some way. Which icon best fits this description?

1__2__3__4__5__6__7__8__9__10__11__12

Edit: I forgot to mention that these won't be icons for the skills themselves, but rather for the overarching skill slot type (for skill slot purposes).

If you have some skills in GIMP or similar, I would take icon 2, duplicate the left side and erase the right side placing the duplicate there. I would then add an arrow from the left to the right overtop of that.

I voted 11 and I'm going to do what @TheoAllen did (but less smartly lol) and list what I see these icons as representing:

1. Duality? idk
2. one and a half men? idk, blink maybe? this is a weird one
3. duality, but w/ vertical shading, also possibly draining, but like a drain ability that affects a party member, not a straight vampirism thingy
4. access denied
5. physically merging two characters
6. mentally merging two characters
7. LET'S BE FRENS (charm person)
8-9. duplication/triplication/mirror image (one of my favorite D&D spells of all time)
10. check out my summoned goons, biatch!
11. closest to teamwork/assitance
12. Literally anything.

e: #4 seems like a popular choice but I wonder if other people aren't seeing two figures with their arms folded forbiddingly like I am

I could see most of them working fine, except 1, 2, 3 and 10. Can't say I have a strong preference towards any one of the others in the list, so any of those would look good to me for it.

I once thought about a boss gauntled game. I actually did it.
Stream will be live shortly with some Gex 3! Feel free to drop by!
Snippet from a game I'm working on. Not much happening here. Mostly look at atmosphere. May upload a longer version. Still need to make up some enemy arts.
Been slightly struggling with developing the latest chapter, I think I will downscale my ambitions and make it more linear.
