Seth's Development Log #4
Elements their Strengths and Weaknesses
The illustration below demonstrates what each of the five elements are weak and strong against.
If a Ninja uses a Fire technique against a Water technique, it will do very little to them. On the other hand, if a Ninja uses a Wind technique against a Fire technique, it will amplify the Fire technique. This means it will do additional damage and/or gain special effects such as lasting longer if it is a buff, HoT (heal over time), or DoT (damage over time). To further clarify, this is extremely useful when using multiple techniques together in a Team since you will gain additional effects and bonuses to the Jutsus where alone would be impossible.
Each player will be able to set their affinity toward a specific element. This means, if you specialize in a certain element, that element will determine your strengths and weaknesses.
