Element

From Innocence Seekers
Jump to: navigation, search

In the Innocence Seekers and Yume ni Aruku series, elements represent aspects of nature and are an inherent property of magic. Spells each have an inherent element, which determines their effectiveness when used against certain targets. Elements are important aspects of the video games, as they determine how much damage is inflicted (and whether the attack will be absorbed).
