Title: What is your Elemental Affinity?
Post by: SmartyPants on March 30, 2010, 05:19:17 PM
This is more of a personality test then a survey of the element you prefer playing with, so answer honestly.

If your answer was "Wisdom lies in great passion" then your affinity is Heat
If your answer was "Wisdom lies in scrutinizing the mistakes of the past" then your affinity is Shadow
If your answer was "Wisdom lies in bringing possibilities to light" then your affinity is Light
If your answer was "Wisdom lies in rationality and detachment" then your affinity is Cold

I go with the 5th option (in game) all of the above.

I would go with light as I always bring new possibilties onto the table

I agree with the shadow affinity. Never a bad idea to look into the past to see how to deal with today.

Personally though, I prefer rational and detachment. So cold pretty much fits with me in a lot of ways, huh?

i go with light because light bomb is amazing :) haha just kidding.  i'd have to go with fire because i can get passionate (some times to passionate) about what i do very easily.

My first and honest answer was also the 5th option- there is truth in all of them, and what I believe one has to do is try to balance the 4 listed in the best possible fashion, but Shadow stands out a little bit, and Light is present a little less than the other 4.

I like the cold one, 'cause my family motto is "No one ever got anywhere by being a pussy."

I've made many mistakes, so looking over them and not making the same mistakes all over again seems wise to me. (Also, I make a save for each elemental character)

I also have to agree with the 5th option all of the above is the most wise. But if I had to pick i'll go with the third option.

You can't pick a fifth option is the game or the poll, so sorry.

First time, I went with cold. Then, next time, I went with the 5th option and I'd forgotten which answers mean whuich and I went with cold again!

I think that all of them are wise. Having to choose one I would balance between cold and light, perhaps choosing one over the other depending on the mood. And shadow is close to them (so, I might pick it up sometimes). I would probably never choose heat.

The ones that seem best to me were shadow and cold. Light also seems a good one. Heat isn't bad either, but that's just not my personality. All of them seem good to me, but since I had to pick one, I picked shadow. If you don't learn from your mistakes, you normally won't get better. When I'm learning from my mistakes, I try to be rational and detached. When I learn what not to do from my mistakes, I try to figure out what to do next time.

I too chose Shadow, both in-game and because it suits me. One of the most common definitions of wisdom involve learning from past mistakes in one form or another, though I also lean towards rationality as well.

(By the way, if anyone's interested in personality traits and things, www.fighunter.com/?page=temperaments (http://www.fighunter.com/?page=temperaments) is an interesting article in that vein)

i agree with Shadow the most, but I think the answer for fire is a little ridiculus
while some people are like that, i doubt many of them think it makes them wise. Quite the opposite, in fact
Title: Re: What is your Elemental Affinity?
Post by: torugo on April 24, 2010, 04:23:32 PM
i dont know why anyone would choose shadow or fire
because malis already has shadow in servants of god so it would be a waste
and the fire element is useless in most battles because most enemys have heat resistance

In case you didn't notice, Malis doesn't have Dark Vortex.

http://sinisterdesign.net/forum/index.php?topic=327.0 (http://sinisterdesign.net/forum/index.php?topic=327.0)
is the thread for discussing the weakness/strength of affinities. This thread is asking which you chose based on the question. Not to bash anybody for being off topic, especially as i was the one that started this conversation

I'd say Light & Cold because they SOMETIMES! might make a good team. I rest my case :D.
Title: Re: What is your Elemental Affinity?
Post by: torugo on May 07, 2010, 02:44:39 PM
see the light and cold affinitys are the best choices. with cold you get the cryo cross which can hit a lot of enemys. with the light you will do big damage and rarely run into anything with light resistance
Title: Re: What is your Elemental Affinity?
Post by: .:Light-God:. on May 08, 2010, 02:37:31 PM
I'd be a Heat person since i like Offensive but i don't like Defensive.
Also , Light is Offdensive.
Shadow? Deffonsive.
Cold? Defence.

Well, true wisdom includes all of these, but I think that examining mistakes of the past is closest to the truth. Still, I usually take either Light or Heat(my personal favourite) affinity. I have never took Cold affinity but i could try it sometime...

Shadow? Offensive.
Cold? Defence.
It's curious how different people choose the same attacks and yet play differently.
When I choose Light, I play defensively, since I take down the enemies without being hit often. On the other hand, when I choose cold, I play offensively, because I charge to the middle of the enemies and hit as many as I can. After that, vengeance is served cold. ;)

Wisdom lies in scrutinizing past mistakes.
Rationality and detachment is intelligence.
Bring possibilities to light is creativity.
Great passion would be motivation.
Title: Re: What is your Elemental Affinity?
Post by: FlyingFinn on May 31, 2010, 11:24:53 PM
jojolagger is right. Should Nameless Ones question be changed someway? It would sound a bit stupid, maybe, but still...
Title: Re: What is your Elemental Affinity?
Post by: cyso on June 03, 2010, 04:26:38 PM
Like I said, all four of the categories are important. Maybe the question should be "Which of the four is most important: understanding, knowledge, creativity, or motivation?". I changed wisdom to understanding and knowledge to understanding. Personal preference, I guess.
