Wood is a magic with no real effect on it’s own, similar to earth, making this magic somewhat mundane, so I propose we give it a new effect, splintered.
The splintered effect appears as small chips of wood on the target when they get hit by an attack, splintered has no DoT, but slightly blinds the targets screen with woodchips.
The effect can be cleared by lightning, water, fire, ash, plasma, and magma magic.
Splintered doesn’t do too much by itself, but ideally I was thinking heat based magics would be able to set the splintered opponents on fire or something, basically making woods point in excelling, synergies, even more powerful.
An alternative is this effect synergies with other heavy magics, as they push the splinters deeper into the opponent, causing more damage on the next hit, stuff like metal would push the most and glass the least, this idea was made by killer boss if anyone thought it was mine.
Like I said before, wood has no actual effect on it’s own, and it would be nice to see it have more love, also, it would help boost its popularity as the new effect synergies with heat well.
Now you’re probably thinking, but won’t that make wood too OP?
Well, you would be sorta right, but a lot of magics clear splintered anyways, and well, look at stuff like shadow or wind if you think wood is too op with this effect.
