Every Hero and enemy is one of the five Elements in the game. The elements are Nature.png Nature, Fire.png Fire, Water.png Water, Dark.png Dark and Light.png Light. They are easily distinguished by the color of their attire or the color of their portraits. Element types not only play an essential part in synergy and elemental passive benefits like Willow's Nature Heart Icon.png Nature Heart or The Furnace' Legacy of Flame Icon.png Legacy of Flame, it also provides advantages and disadvantages over other elements.

When starting a fight in the dungeon, you will notice that arrows are either red or green. Red arrows indicate that your hero will deal 25% less damage to that specific enemy. Green arrows indicate that you will deal damage without any modification with elemental types.

You will also notice that some enemies will have double green arrows over them. This means that your Hero has an elemental advantage over them and will deal bonus damage. The following have elemental advantages over the second: Nature.png Nature beats Water.png Water, Water.png Water beats Fire.png Fire, and Fire.png Fire beats Nature.png Nature. Dark.png Dark and Light.png Light deal additional damage to each other. They will deal an additional 30% damage.

It is important to note that you can not land critical hits (CRIT) on an enemy with an elemental disadvantage. This means Fire.png Fire can't CRIT Water.png Water, Nature.png Nature can't CRIT Fire.png Fire, and Water.png Water can't CRIT Nature.png Nature. But Dark.png Dark and Light.png Light can land crits on each other.

Bonus and penalty in battle

The following table gives an overview about the bonus and penalty given when one element fights another. The rows represent the elemental type of damage and the Defending columns represent the hero or the enemy that will recieve the damage. For example, a Fire.png Fire source dealing damage to another Fire.png Fire Hero will not gain any benefit and will deal 0% additional damage, wheras the same Fire.png Fire source dealing it to Nature.png Nature will deal an additional 30%.










Fire.png Fire Nature.png Nature Water.png Water Light.png Light Dark.png Dark
Fire.png Fire +0% +30% -25% +0% +0%
Nature.png Nature -25% +0% +30% +0% +0%
Water.png Water +30% -25% +0% +0% +0%
Light.png Light +0% +0% +0% +0% +30%

ThaliaPortrait Small.PNG Psst! Guess what. Nature.png Nature Heroes have way more resistance to Poison than the other Elements. Because, you know, green!

Every element has a increased resistance (30%) to the element specific negative status effect (debuff) and an increased resistance (15%) to the opposing element specific debuff, in addition every Hero has a 3% Spirit resistance. Each star ★ that a Hero gains increases the resistance a little bit (about 0.5%, primary element resistance for each star is: ★ = 30%, 2★ and 3★ = 31%, 4★ and 5★ = 32%, 6★ = 33%).

So Fire.png Fire Heroes resist better Fire. They take less Fire damage and have a better chance to avoid being Burned. They also have some poison resistance because Nature.png Nature is the opposing element.

Light.png Light Heroes resist better Lighting and being Shocked but have no increased Disease resistance.

The following table shows the resistances for each Element.

Element Fire Poison Cold Freeze Lightning Disease Spirit
Fire.png Fire +30% +15% +0% +0% +0% +0% +3%
Nature.png Nature +0% +30% +15% +15% +0% +0% +3%
Water.png Water +15% +0% +30% +30% +0% +0% +3%
Light.png Light +0% +0% +0% +0% +30% +0% +3%
Dark.png Dark +0% +0% +0% +0% +0% +30% +3%
