Within Dungeon Fighter Online, Elements have a significant part in the game, with both players and monsters alike capable of using elemental attributes or at least have skills with an element applied to it. For the player, elements can be found from various sources from items to weapons to their own skills.
There exists four elements within Dungeon Fighter Online.
Attacks imbued with elemental power works best when used against foes with opposing elements besides its own, dealing increased damage. How much damage an opposing element can do is dependent on not only the amount of elemental damage the wielder has but how much resistance the target has against said element. For example, a player with Fire Damage can deal increased damage towards enemies with a lower Fire Resistance. In contrast, an enemy with a high enough Fire Resistance will take little to no Fire damage.
DamageInfluenceByElements = OriginalDamage×[1 + (ElementalDamage - ElementalResistanceOfEnemy) ÷ 220]
In rare occasions, an attack may be composed of more than one element. These attacks are will deal damage based on which element will deal the most damage to a given enemy. For example, an attack that deals both Light and Water damage would deal Light damage to an enemy whose Light Resistance is the lower than Water and vice versa.
Sources of Elemental Damage and Resistance
Armor, accessories, and weapons are a big source for elements, either by granting the user an element to their attacks or by increasing their elemental damage and resistance. Equipment with rarities past Rare (Legacy, Halidom, Unique, Legendary and Epic)is a good example of this. (I.E. Wielding Legacy: Agitto of Nitras will make your attacks deal Light Element damage and the Epic Dark Gothic Set will not only grant Shadow Element to the user but also greatly increases the user's Shadow Damage and Resistance).

Items are one of the more obscure sources for elemental damage and resistance. There exist very few consumables in the game that effects the player's elemental damage and resistance, but such items can provide effects such as increased elemental damage and resistance or imbue a weapon with an element.
Other sources for elemental damage includes the Cube Contract, which can add an element of choice to a weapon periodically based on cube fragements. Another source are glowing circles that are littered on the dungeon maps. Such circles are extremely rare to find but when obtained, will temporarily enchant your weapon with an element.
