What is an Area-of-Effect Skill?

This question is in relation to the buff you can select in the Infinite Archive which increases the amount of damage done by your area-of-effect skills.

What constitutes such a skill? Or perhaps more to the point, what does not?

My two mains (PC NA and PC EU) are both Stamina-Melee-Two-Handed fighters. Does Cleave and its morphs count as an area-of-effect skill, or does that term only apply to skills where you place a circular area on the ground? I'm just trying to figure out if I'm wasting my choices by choosing that particular buff when it's offered.

    really anything that hits more than 1 target

    it gets a little weird with stuff like acid spray, which is a cone (aoe), but the dot it applies is single target

    Okay, so physical/stamina damage skills can be AOEs, too; they don't need to be magica-based damage skills. Perfect!

    I see negate listed, which is understandable, but I'm wondering how it's affected by the IA buff. Is its duration increased? Or is its suppression morph the only one affected by the buff? In theory i seems like absorption could also be affected, providing an increased amount of healing.

    for negate it would affect the morph that deals dmg, it would not affect the morph that does healing (that is buffed by a separate vision/verse)
