Elemental Casting?

Post by Gordon Tramor » Sun Mar 05, 2017

Hello there!
I wanna partake in combat, but i still need to work on 2 of my skills, and while one i got something going for, the other I'm not sure. I was thinking of Elemental casting, but not sure how does it work. I saw it's about selecting effects, but does it only enhance normal attacks, or does it only work as a power-up of a normal skill? Does anyone has this skill to explain better?

I can! So, Elemental Casting adds effects to your normal four attacks. You can add up to 3, which cost one more dust point per element. (So 2 elements = 2 Dust cost of the skill). For, with burn for example, if you used elemental casting: Burn, the multiplier for one of your attacking stats goes up (For example, Melee's x5 would become x6) and you use that to hit. It also does guarenteed hp damage but thats extra. When you combine the elements you want of elemental casting, Those effects are the actual "Skill" meaning it's like a build your own pizza at a restaurant.

thanks for the info! One last thing, many skills can only effect either melee or ranged, does it work the same way, or I can use it no matter which attack type i use?

Elemental Casting by its very nature is only a dust attack, so the example Bora gave is unfortunately incorrect.

When creating the skill you choose up to 3 elements your character casts with. Once you have chosen your elements you always use all of those elements for the skill when you use it. It modifies a "Dust" attack.
