Elemental Type Moves- The Secret Meta

  • Published on Aug 21, 2017
  • Most players get through the entire game with only normal type attacks. Moves that deal either slash, stab, or crush type damage. But there are other options available! With TierZoo's guide to the elements, you can subvert normal defenses and dominate the meta.

    4:38 What I enjoy is that the subtext here implies that we 'the player' will one day inhabit, control, and be, these creatures. Reincarnation. Which leaves us to only assume that these creatures, today, are of minds, of players just like ours.

    Humans are OP, they can use their crafting skill to mimic any elemental attack, and have even invented some that are entirely unavaliable to other builds, such as flamethrower, water cutter, and laser cannon. Already, players are quitting en masse because human mains keep killing them! Fortunately, the devs are working on a World War 3 nerf that should hopefully render the human build useless, but human mains are already working on ways to bypass this. Some even figured out how to hack the game to access the still-experimental Outer Space Expansion Pack!

    Are there any types that do not have any elemental moves in the current meta?

  • Robert Paiva
    Robert Paiva Month ago

    What is the most common Elemental types of damage in the outside meta is actually poison I'm grouping poison and Venom into the same classification to make it simpler the poison type of attacks include Venom and poison Venom is grouped into three types Venom's that cause massive blood clots which stop circulatory flow Venom's that directly attack the cells and Venoms that thin out the blood causing the blood loss status effect to happen much faster than normal then there's poison Poison has two types poison that can be absorbed through the outside barrier and poisons that need to be ingested

    You mention Electric Eels and not Torpedo Rays? Same basic idea, much better implementation, and the stealth to back up the electric shock to give yourself basically an auto-crit on anything in the size category you're looking at dealing with. Not content with using it defensively, the Torpedo Ray uses this offensively to disable prey items by ambush, as well as fend off aggressors with a very nasty shock. Easily a tier above Electric Eels.

    I suggest not using a moray eel picture for the electric eel. The electric eel is actually a type of knife fish which uses the same ability, all true eels are exclusive to tropical marine biomes like coral reefs and mangroves

    Humans are broken. By investing so much in the "intelligence" skill tree, they unlocked the "create complex tools" ability and they can just make tools that let them use elemental abilities (see flame thrower, water cannons, ect).

    i think you should have talked about the mantas shrimp's punch, although its a normal type move it has grown a new aoe ability of a small blast that boils water. if not that then id consider bio-luminescence to have a confusion aspect to it

    Archerfish aren't the only water elemental types. Spittlebugs have a signature move Foam Armor, where they mix air and their own watery urine to create force fields that camouflage them and deal recoil damage to predators. Dolphins and toothed whales use Bubble to capture and disorient entire fish raid parties.
