Elements

Note:
Every person and monster in Ragnarok Online has its own element. The element something is defines its weaknesses and strengths against skills/other elements. The term is often used interchangeably with Property or Attribute.

The Elements:

Neutral

Basic Elemental Property. A large portion of skills/monsters are Neutral property. Neutral has no elemental weakness, but the Ghost property is not as effective against it as the rest. All weapons, unless specified, are of the Neutral property.
