Playing Earth in Granblue

Introduction

Earth is an element that has become unpopular lately, as other elements output much more damage with less effort required. Yet, there are some who still stick to Earth for reasons such as:

  2. Cute summons (Yggdrasil/Medusa)
  3. Tiamat wouldn’t drop any guns
