Elementing weapons and/or suits is a double edge sword. It can help you greatly or cause you much pain. You can only element weapons and suits. After you element beyond +3, the chance of breaking the item becomes greater. Your item breaks when the elementing fails. To avoid losing your item, Scroll of Sprotects must be used.
When elementing, one has to consider the pro's and con's. Each element has a strength and a weakness. Use the chart to your left to see each weakness. The higher the refinement the more damage you will create or the more damage will be reduced.
