|Basic Elements||Water and Earth|
Since Nature is a combined element, there are several prerequisites to learning how to use it. First, the user must have learnt, have a decent control over both Water and Earth. Secondly, the user has to be as equally experienced with both Prime Elements. Lastly, the user also needs big reserves of Aera, and to have good control over it. Considering the first two requirements, this last one should be easy for the user to achieve it.
Nature enables the user to control plant life, and therefore, is a unique element among the nineteen, since it allows the user to control alive beings. Because of this, it is among the most difficult elements to control, probably only surpassed by the combined forms of opposed elements. These elements also allow the user to control vines, moss, and parts of the plants, such as leaves, seeds, fruits, flowers, pollen, spores and others. It can also be used to manipulate pheromones and toxins.
To learn Nature, the user needs to "feed" nearby plants with their energy, accelerating their photosynthesis process, and thus making the plants larger and stronger. This process can be made even faster with light "feeding" the plant as well.
Players generally start by learning to grow grass or nearby plants. Experts in Nature are able to grow plants in a matter of seconds, reshape them to their will to some degree, and create wooden branches/roots with enough strength to break through rocks. Masters of this element can mutate plants into whatever shape and form they may desire, and even grow massive forests.
All Nature users need nearby water, earth and some form of plant life to perform this technique at all times. Creating forms of plant life is believed to be impossible, so all techniques rely on controlling already existing plant life. This is why most nature users always carry many seeds with them, in case of an emergency.
It should be noted that Nature allows the user to control living plants, not wood. Wood can be manipulated by using Manipulation. Nature also allows the user to control Fungus, even though they are not plants.
- Light: with light, the plants grow faster and stronger.
- Nearby Elements: by far, the biggest disadvantage of this element is the necessity of having water, earth and some form of plant life nearby, all at the same time. Otherwise, they are rendered useless.
- Fire/Cold: extreme heat or cold can kill plants.
- As the combination of the two opposed elements, Nature can be seen as the opposite element of Scorch.
