Guardian Tales – Hero & Weapon Elements

The Element system in Guardian Tales is critical in inflicting additional damage to targets, and luckily, it’s easy to understand. Following a Rock-Paper-Scissor system, the elemental effects are as follows:

Element Effect

  • Superior Elemental deals 130% Attack Damage.
  • Inferior Elemental deals 70% Attack Damage.
  • Unrelated Elements deals 100% Attack Damage.

Element Notes

  • The Hero’s ATK Element is decided by the equipped Weapon’s element, not the Hero’s.
  • The Hero’s DEF Element is decided by the Hero’s Element, not the weapon’s.
  • If the Hero’s element matches the element of the equipped Weapon, there’s an additional 10% ATK bonus.
