The three elements of Magic.

Description

  • The three main Elements are Ice, Fire and Lightning.
    • Additionally, the absence of an Element is Neutral (also known as Physical).
    • Alchemy has four counterparts: Water (Ice), Fire (Fire), Wind (Lightning), and Clay (Neutral).
  • Each element has its own strengths and weaknesses; Monsters, Players, and Skills can have Elemental properties.
    • Monsters without an elemental property are not affected by elements.

Elements and Skills

Elements and Elementals

  • Players can alter their Element using Elementals and Elemental Removers.
  • By default, weapons and equipment are considered Neutral before Elements are applied.
    • Elementals are considered a Rank B Enchant with a 100% Enchant Success Rate.
    • Each Element placed onto gear makes the Player take on that property by 1/9th (11.1%).
    • Only one Element can be applied to each weapons and equipment.
    • Elementals can be enchanted over other Elementals; Elemental Removers are only required to return the item back to Neutral.
  • Elementals can be Harvested from Elemental Sprites.
    • Some Monsters with Elements can also drop Elementals of the Element they have.
  • Monsters are usually never 100% of a certain element.
    • For example, the common White Spider is Ice 2, Lightning 0, Fire 0, and Neutral 7.
  • It is possible to have a hybrid Element.
    • For example, the common Mimic is Ice 2, Lightning 2, Fire 0, and Neutral 5.
  • Wearing Elementals will increase damage dealt and received.
    • Note: Elements do not affect Skills that already have Elements, such as magic or alchemical skills.
  • Elemental enchants are required for the Technique Elemental Attunement to function:
    • Elemental Attunement will cause Ice elemental-enchanted weapons will occasionally slow the enemy.
    • Elemental Attunement will cause Fire elemental-enchanted weapons will occasionally bleed the enemy for a percent of the player's total maximum damage.
    • Elemental Attunement will cause Lightning elemental-enchanted weapons will occasionally empower the player's weapon, reducing their weapon knockdown gauge thus allowing more hits before knockdown.
  • Warning: High levels of one single Element can make you both extremely effective and extremely vulnerable depending on the enemy you face.
    • It is recommended to have different Elemental weapon and equipment sets based on what you will be fighting.

Elements and Reforges

  • There are also Elemental Reforges that can increase one of the Elements in a manner similar to the Enchants.
    • Like regular Elementals, they provide defensive and offensive capabilities.
    • Unike regular Elementals, they provide a Reforge Level-Minus-One Additional Bonus of +1/9th (+11.1%) damage for every Level beyond the first regardless of the Defender's Elementals.
      • This includes against Elementally Neutral enemies.
      • Some enemies are specifically immune to this secondary effect, however.
  • Weapons (and not Equipment) can receive up to 6 Levels of the Reforge at Rank 1.
    • Some One-Handed Weapons have this maximum Reforge Level reduced in half, capping at 3 Levels at Reforge Rank 1.
      • Reforge Levels are not added together between One-Handed Weapons, meaning the Reforge Level-Minus-One Additional Bonus will not take place unless at least two Levels of the Reforge are present on a single Weapon even if both Weapons have one Level in the same Element.
    • It is possible to receive multiple Elemental Reforges on a single Weapon.

Elements and Echostones

  • There are also Elemental Echostone Awakenings that can increase one of the Elements in a manner similar to the Enchants.
    • Like regular Elementals, they provide defensive and offensive capabilities.
  • The Black Echostone can receive up to 1 Level of the Awakening in any element.
    • Only one Black Echostone may be worn at a time.

Elements and Damage

For the in-game lore book, see Understanding Elementals.
Element Damage Chart.
  • Ice and Fire evenly oppose each other.
    • Every single Level of an Element increases damage given or received by 1/9th (11.1%).
    • Damage is only increased by the lower Element Level between the damage giver and receiver.
      • Ice 2 attacking Fire 5 is a +2/9th (-22.2%) increase.
  • Ice and Lightning unevenly oppose each other.
    • A single Level of either Element increases damage given to the opposing Element depending on its Level.
    • Every three Levels of either Element increases damage received by +1/9th (+11.1%).
  • Fire and Lightning ignore each other.
    • Each Level of either Element does not increase or reduce damage.
  • Any Element against itself will evenly oppose itself, reducing damage.
    • Every single Level of an Element reduces damage given or received by -1/9th (-11.1%).
    • Damage is only reduced by the lower Element Level between the damage giver and receiver.
      • Ice 2 attacking Ice 5 is a -2/9th (-22.2%) reduction.

Various Other Bonuses
Are Additive With These Bonuses
  • When Players or Monsters have Levels in multiple Elements, the game prioritizes reducing damage before increasing damage.
    • This effect goes so far as to remove Elements from the calculations when an Element opposes itself.
      • Ice 2 Fire 2 attacking Ice 2 is a -2/9th (-22.2%) reduction.
        • Ice 2 attacks Ice 2 first, causing a -2/9th reduction in damage. The attacker's Ice 2 is reduced by 2 as a result, and becomes Ice 0. The defender's Ice 2 is reduced by 2 as a result, and becomes Ice 0.
        • Fire 2 attacks Ice 0 second, resulting in nothing happening. The defender takes a final -2/9th reduction in damage.
      • Ice 1 Fire 1 attacking Ice 2 does not increase or reduce damage.
        • Ice 1 attacks Ice 2 first, causing a -1/9th reduction in damage. The defender's Ice 2 is reduced by 1 as a result, and becomes Ice 1.
        • Fire 1 attacks Ice 1 second, causing a +1/9th increase in damage. The defender takes the original amount of damage.
  • The opposition of Ice and Lightning causes the opposition of Ice and Fire to become uneven and chaotic.
    • The opposition of Ice and Fire will continue to have a maximum increase in damage based off of the defender's Elemental Level.
    • However, the increase in damage due to the opposition of Ice and Lightning will be added to the increase in damage due to the opposition of Ice and Fire.
      • Ice 1 attacking Fire 3 Lightning 6 is a +5/9th (+55.5%) increase.
        • Ice 1 attacks Lightning 6 first, causing a +2/9th increase in damage. The defender's Elements do not change.
        • Ice 1 attacks Fire 3 second, causing an initial +1/9th increase in damage. The effect of Ice 1 attacking Lightning 6 causes an additional +2/9th increase in damage. The maximum amount of damage possible from the defender's Fire 3 is a +3/9th increase in damage, so no change needs to occur. The defender takes a final +5/9th increase in damage.
      • Ice 2 attacking Ice 1 Fire 3 Lightning 6 is a +4/9th (+44.4%) increase.
        • Ice 2 attacks Ice 1 first, causing a -1/9th reduction in damage. The attacker's Ice 2 is reduced by 1 as a result, and becomes Ice 1. The defender's Ice 1 is reduced by 1 as a result, and becomes Ice 0.
        • Ice 1 attacks Lightning 6 second, causing a +2/9th increase in damage. The defender's Elements do not change.
        • Ice 1 attacks Fire 3 third, causing an initial +1/9th increase in damage. The effect of Ice 1 attacking Lightning 6 causes an additional +2/9th increase in damage. The maximum amount of damage possible from the defender's Fire 3 is a +3/9th increase in damage, so no change needs to occur. The defender takes a final +4/9th increase in damage.

Trivia

  • According to Lassar during Classes and Training, Poison is not classified as an Element because it is made up of different Elemental variables.
