Elementalist Insignia


[edit] Overview

Elementalists are a rather powerful race, claiming ownership over the Earth, Heavens, the Water and the Flames. They have the ability to dish out massive amounts of damage to single unit, yet at the same time they may spread damage to several opponents at the same time making them a diverse unit in the role of combat. Their weakness comes in the form of defence, which they have very little of. This means the player must develop a tactic, this normally comes down to attacking an enemy before they see you or launching a series of hit and runs. They also have the option of imposing a number of different negative statuses on the foe. This versatility allows the Elementalist to work in a number of roles including a spell caster from afar, an explosion of deadly magic up close or even a defensive close combat fighter.
