Earth Drive (Alt: Earth Drive) is a 3rd class offensive skill available as Royal Guard.


Inflicts Earth property Melee Physical Damage to all enemies in a set area around the user and decreases their Physical Defense and Attack Speed by 25%. This skill also sweeps any ongoing ground skills in its area of effect. The damage is greatly affected by the weight of the equipped shield and it has a chance of breaking it, except for some explicitly unbreakable shields.

  • The total damage is inflicted in one bundle of 5 hits. This only affects the divisibility of the damage, which is rounded down.
  • Although it may sweep ground skills such as Extreme Vacuum and Manhole, players already trapped in these will still need to wait the full duration of those effects. A Royal Guard trapped in Extreme Vacuum can move by casting Battle Chant after a successful use of this skill.
  • This skill is capable of hitting concealed enemies and revealing them.
  • The upgrade level of the equipped shield does not affect the damage.
  • Cards that increase damage percentage-wise do not affect Shield Weight and Shield Refine on skills that consider those into damage calculation. They will affect Weapon Attack and Equip Attack only.
