|This is an elemental research about Earthquake element, a guideline. |
All the mentioned abilities are the basics, and by no means are the only possible abilities of this element.
It's only used to show the differences in elemental levels.
The earthquake itself is shaking of a surface (i.e. ground), which can destroy buildings and kill people (people die due to collapsing buildings and things, just shaking doesn’t kill ‘em). It’s a bit similar to the sound element as it’s based on vibrations, too.
Differences between earth and earthquake elements Edit
Earthquake is focused on ground manipulation via sending vibrations in order to create earthquakes. Earth elemented dragons can cause earthquakes too, but less destructive and mostly uncontrollable.
Skill levels & abilities Edit
Starter level: A dragon can shake a surface slightly, very bit. Richter magnitude is 1-3, and almost no one can feel it.
Intermediate level: The magnitude grows to 4-5, and the shaking is quite noticeable. Still causes very bit damage, may knock down some things from shelves.
An element wielder starts learning how to make small crevices and close it up. The crevices are very small and not deep.
Average level: All the previously levels' skills but stronger and more stable.
Master level: The magnitude extends to 8 at max, which causes damage to majority of buildings. Some collapse fully or partially.
The crevice control is mastered, so that a dragon can open and close crevices at will. The crevices are a few meters deep, enough to have a few dragons fitting; wide enough to make a snake golem stuck.
Despite not wielding the earth element itself, an earthquake user of master level can manipulate the surface a bit, for example, creating platforms even without touching the surface.
Optionally it is possible to learn how to send and read the vibrations, similarly to a bat, but via paws only (remember Tofa from Avatar?).
The earthquake fury is an earthquake of magnitude around 8 and higher, followed by randomly opening and closing crevices.
Guardian level: The magnitude of earthquakes goes over 9, which means total destruction of everything. Obviously the element user can control how bad an earthquake is since intermediate level, but only the guardian level can destroy everything quickly.
The crevices are wider, deeper and can “eat” a few average buildings at once.
- If you give a stone to an advanced earthquake user (no less than master level), they can crush the stone into small pieces with their elemental power.
