    Water

    Why is the highest water spell simply Water? What the fuck seriously? I go to try and find Waterga, since there is an aeroga and I can't find it on the license board in any of the 8 black magic squares. Good job SE, totally neglect water spells?

    Ya but neither can the enemy really. But it's pretty fucked up stopping at Water I, which does crap damage. Also enemies in Nabudis cast Waterga so the spell exists. Why couldn't they just include it for players?

    Exactly the reason why Yaizmat is weak to dark.

    Why, because you can have a good dark-elemental weapon and Darkga him?

    Except Katanas, which are quite good weapons, do Dark damage.

    Dark has a whole series of spells, light has holy (which prevents casting while the animation happens, making it kinda useful if you can time it right). Water has 1, air has 2, earth has 0. But earth has artemis arrows and mud shots, and air has gladius. So water and light are tied for rarest player-usable elemental damage, except that water is early game only and holy is late game only.

    In the end, of course, black magic is mostly useless for doing damage because it's very slow compared to attacking and you don't get the good spells until after pharos anyway.

    light has tournesol. who needs holy when you have tournesol for light-weak mobs.

    Do you mean Excalibur? Tournesol has no element.

    tournesol isn't light element.... if that was the case, you'd cure yiazmat with it.. wyrmhero blade and excalibur are light element.

    there's not many of the spells mentioned in this thread, but there are weapons and ammo with those elements.

    Water Bombs, 5 damage bomb type ammo. (water element)
    Mud Shot, 2 damage bullets but also add Blind. (earth element)
    Aqua Shot, 3 damage bullets. (water element)
    Artemis Arrows, 5 damage arrows, strongest arrows in game. (earth element)

    ah, sorry, you're right. Was thinking wyrmhero blade, out came tournesol. confused the two, I'll go back to my corner now.
