Elements are the foundation of every spell. Each spell consists of at least one element, but they can also be combined in any number of ways. Spell effects may be stacked to amplify their power, and some combinations of elements even produce additional effects. Certain elements are grouped under the same Element Type.

Each element can be "Queued Up" by pressing its key. Right clicking (by default) will cast the elements as a "spell" in their primary cast form (explained below). Up to 5 elements can be queued up at a time. Except for shield, each elements can be queued more than once to increase its effects.

Six elements are opposed to each other. Queuing their vertical counterpart will "dispel" (un-queue) the other. ShieldShield and EarthEarth will not do this. Queuing Fire Fire with Ice Ice will reduce it to Water Water. Queuing Cold cold with Steam Steam will reduce it to Water Water. Earth Earth and Lightning Lightning are also counter and will "dispel" each other.

If Ice Ice is queued and Lightning lightning is added, then Fire fire can be queued to change the ice back to water. they can then be cast, but the water will not soak the target until after the casting, thus the lightning does not get increased damage. If any other element is queued after this, the two will cancel.

Element Primary Cast TypesEdit

Each element has a primary cast type. When mixed with other types one cast style will take president. Projectile will take president over all. beam will take president over spray/cone. Projectile Element>Beam Element>Spray Element
