Elemental Area Attack
« on: May 08, 2010, 07:32:52 PM »
So I definitely have the proper levels as far as psy power and defense, and my elemental attack is level 1, but I still cannot learn the area attack. When can you learn it? (I am playing in the downloaded version if that matters)

To my understanding, your elemental attack must be level 2 before you can learn you area attack

Strange, as far as I am aware, one requires elemental blast level 1 before the elemental area attack is available to be learned. Craig, can you clear up this matter please?

He's right: area attacks like Pyro Hail and Cryo Cross require a Blast level of 2 to learn.

So as to not clutter the forums with a new thread with a topic very similar, I wanted to post an idea on the levels required for elemental area shield.

I reached blast lvl 10, and shield level 0, and still the area shield was availabe. I figured it would be easier to get the area shield through leveling the shield, (lucent in my case), so I think the unlock is close to

Blast lvl + Shield lvl*2 (or maybe 3 or 4) = 10

Or depending on how you look at it,

Blast lvl/2 + Shield lvl = 5.
To verify this, I would have to know how how high a shield level you have to have to get area shield without leveling your blast.

Unlocking the area shield is based of your Big Shield level, not yourMind Shield level. Check it out, you probably leveled Big Shield and didn't notice.

Okay, then. So the area shield is unrelated to the elemental shield, and you can get one without the other?

Yes. The small elemental shield is earned from a Mind Shield level of two.

But can you get the Area shield before the elemental? Sorry, but my idea of the system just got flipped like a burger at Denny's.

Note: I am not advertising, promoting, or in any way proclaiming Denny's to be superior in any way to another restaurant, in service, prices, food quality, or burger flipping. The example was for comic effect only.

Yes. It does sound odd, but it is possbile, and happened to me multiple times, because the few times I used Duvalier to heal were group emergencies.
