Earth is the second element of the Rainbow and is represented by the color orange.

Those born with this element are called Earthshapers. People who train to manipulate Earth may also simply be called 'Earth users'.

It is seen as the element of nature, of autumn, nurturing and protection.

Earthshapers are known for their vitality and protectiveness, but suffer from poor agility.

Combat Breakdown

Earth is strong against Lightning, and weak against Wind. Earth can also be effective against Metal, as metallic weapons can't easily cut or pierce solid stone, and may be broken upon it. However, any plant-based powers are rather easily cut down before a sharp blade, leaving Metal a somewhat tricky opponent.

Earth also has a natural advantage against......

At this time I can't think of any races that'd be inherently weak to Earth.
Social Compatibility

The Wayward Woods is the most ideal location for Earthshapers in IGNOLand. Being more in tune with nature than more urban locales, the Earth element can truly thrive here, and many of its native races have a strong tendency toward the element as a result.

Some races commonly associated with Earth include centaurs, satyrs, fauns, earth elementals, wild elves, and most chthonic and flora races.

Notable IGNOites with the Wind element include SG2, Kaylin, and the Zetabug.

Legend has it that there was once a temple built to honor the earth. It's almost unanimously agreed by those who believe in its existence that it once stood somewhere in the Wayward Woods. The centaurs claim to have discovered a large underground ruin they believe may have once been this temple, but the centaurs also claim that the trees are evil and eat people who get lost in the woods, so little stock has been put into these ramblings.
