I'm still not sure how elements work in 2k3

the only thing I know about them is that the letter symbolizes how strong they work against who is weak against that specific element?

Each element has elemental weaknesses in five settings, A to E. Each setting has a damage modification rate.

This monster's attribute resist for Sword is "C" so it will take 100% damage from sword attacks

I don't seem to get the first part but thank you, I seem to understand a bit now

So it's ranked A-E. Each rank is a percentage A:150, B:125, C:100, D:75, E:50. That number is how much damage they take from said element.

So if BigBoss fire elemental weakness is A (150). That means he takes 150% damage from fire. And if his ice elemental weakness is C (50) he takes 50% damage from ice attacks.

And it looks like you can customize the numbers too. So theoretically, you can have the Pierce elements A rank at 200 instead of 150. So Enemies weak to Piercing take more then if that same enemy was weak to swords.
