Elemental Strike is a warding-based spell that inflicts a burst of elemental energy upon the target, causing immediate health point damage followed by a critical of a particular element.
One who is attuned to a particular element will produce an Elemental Strike of the selected element. If the caster is not attuned to any element, a random element out of the five will be chosen each time the spell is cast.
Possible types of elemental criticals by attunement:
Training in Elemental Lore, Fire provides a chance to trigger a 2nd elemental strike on a random opponent in the room for an additional cost of 5 mana. The additional strike will not hit the original target. The additional strike will only strike creatures and will never occur if a player casts this spell at another player or if the additional 5 mana is not available.
