What exactly does EPA mean?
I've seen it used many times, but have no clue what the terminology is.

Now on to my post before I realized he was a bot:

Elemental Physical Attack (EPA)

An attack that takes both the Attack value (Atk - Def) and the Elemental value (Pow - Res)
I think.

Sometimes I like to compare apples to oranges. (Figuratively) ... They are both fruits, but which one would you eat more? (If taken literally, I'd probably choose apples.)
Maybe it is over-analyzing, but it doesn't mean the information is useless.


The only GS Discord servers with significance are:
Golden Sun Hacking Community

Can you believe how small the Golden Sun Community is?

2+2=5 Don't believe me? Those are rounded decimal numbers. Take that, flat earth theorists! :)

Fox answered your question, but Ragnarok, Astral Blast, Planetary, and Diamond Berg are all examples of EPAs.

The term is kinda dumb but we didn't invent it.
Oh yeah baby, £ me harder.

Fusion is just a cheap tactic to make weak Adepts stronger.

Yoshi's Lighthouse is a hacking website in progress. Why not check it out if you like Yoshi or the Mario & Luigi games?

Well.  Do you have any better names for it?

I'd just call it a physical attack and then specify which element it aligns with. That way it can include Wild Wolf & Orc, and can be differentiated from standard attacks by just calling them standard attacks.
