Summon Earth is one of Melia's summon arts in Xenoblade Chronicles. Each earth element summoned will increase Melia's and her allies' physical defence by 15% (reduces physical damage) within the area effect. When the earth element is discharged, the targeted enemy is inflicted with Poison, doing damage every 2 seconds.

Miscellaneous Info

  • Damage is calculated based on the weapon's attack + Melia's Ether strength.
  • Poison Earth is by far the most powerful art, as it can sap away the enemies' HP significantly while drawing minimal aggro. It is even more potent during a Chain Attack with a maximum multiplier.
  • Damage and damage over time can be augmented with Poison Plus gems.
  • The Physical Defence Up buff is normally used to reduce physical damage against high level enemies (red level tags and Unique Monsters), which inflict significantly more damage than normal to party members.
