element damage in chrono cross
« on: January 08, 2009, 01:55:02 pm »
if i had to take a guess, i'd say that every element is magic based, and maybe some of the character specific techs do damage based on attack power or strength.

surprisingly i found no FAQ's or anything explaining this part of the game, so my question is, ARE there any elements that damage based on physical power or simply just do a fixed amount of damage? because im really at a loss here as to how to allocate a character with low magic, are you just suppose to give them consumable elements or something? i dont think i've acquired any yet, but was thinking maybe status inflicting ones would be good for them as well.

Yes, there are some techs that use attack instead of magic (X-Strike is a great example). There aren't any allocatable elements that do physical damage, so you're probably better off just giving the low magic character some support elements. As far as I know, those don't care what your magic stat is.

Things like consumables, HellSoul/Bound, and EagleEye/LoRes/etc. are what I mean by "support" elements, of course. Also keep in mind that they can be used perfectly well as field effect flunkies. Just give them some lower level crap like Aquabeam and let them help you cast FrogPrince from time to time. :)
