The Elements - Part 2

Today's post focuses on the "strong" elemental spells that the wizard attains when he retrieves the second gem for an element.  "Strong" spells require the wizard to build up elemental power before casting so timing is important, though the wizard can still move at a somewhat reduced rate while channeling an element.  These secondary spells add some of the heaviest damage attacks as well as the four elemental forms which provide incredible utility.


Fire
 Big Fireball (Attack)
The aptly named big fireball makes a lasting impression.  On impact it detonates sending smaller fireballs in every direction so you can be sure there is plenty for everyone.  Luckily your bonus fireballs don't hurt you!


Fire Elemental Form (Defense)
Take on the elemental form of fire and blaze your own trail (literally)!  In fire elemental form you can move faster than ever before and can pass through flames without being hurt.  Plus you leave a fiery mess behind you and who wouldn't want that?



Water
Ice Block (Attack)
Sometimes you just want your enemies to chill.  A lot.  Freeze them in a block of ice and enjoy a few moments of leisure time or maybe slide them into a hole if you are in a hurry.  Also makes for a handy moveable wall!  The uses are endless!*  (* uses are not actually endless)


Water Elemental Form (Defense)
Take on the elemental form of water and go with the flow!  In water elemental form you can walk on water and you leave an icy trail behind to slow your foes.  Just be sure you make it back to dry land before you take an unintended dip in the deep!


Earth
Stone Fist (Attack)
The stone fist hits like a bomb and will send all but the toughest of foes sailing back!  As an added bonus it can smash through some walls and make ice blocks into a million ice cubes.  Now you have a reason to yell: "Stand back, I'm making daiquiris"!


Earth Elemental Form (Defense)
When the going gets tough you may need to get tougher.  Like rock tough.  In earth elemental form you can walk through anything, which can be like, super handy sometimes.


Air
Chain Lightning (Attack)
Unleash the storm with chain lightning.  When chain lightning hits something it forks, and when that lightning hits something it forks, and when that lightning hits something it forks, and.. well, then it pretty much stops.  But that is still a lot of forking lightning..


Air Elemental Form (Defense)
When you absolutely have to get over that giant chasm today air elemental form is your go to spell.  Become a happy little cloud and float away like you always wanted to.  Just remember you stop floating when the elemental form expires.


That wraps up our tour of the "strong" elemental spells.  Be sure to check out the standard elemental spells in the last post if you missed it.  Of course all of this is subject to minor revision as we go but for the most part I think the sixteen elemental spells are pretty much ready for puzzle solving and enemy defeating.  Cheers!
