Hero's Element?
« on: February 05, 2012, 04:59:30 PM »

How is the hero's element determined? When I first downloaded the game, it was always shadow, but now that I've updated to the fixed version, it's always cold. What determines it?

I haven't played TPA2 in quite a while but I remember the elemental affinity to be random...

Weird, I guess I just had really REALLY weird luck. It is indeed random, I just got the same thing over and over again by chance for some reason :) I just managed to get something different.

Anyway, what impact does element have for non-psi fighters? I know for psi fighters it determines the element of their attacks, but what about for, say, a swordsman?

Perhaps it will unlock elemental resistance after some training... I recall it happening with psy fighters, but I'm unsure about the other classes.
