Earthbending

Earth

Introduction

"The key to earthbending is your stance. You've got to be steady and strong. Rock is a stubborn element. If you're going to move it, you've got to be like a rock yourself."
―Toph Beifong

Harness the strength of the earth. As one of the sturdy members of the Earth Kingdom, you can push your incredible reach to the limit and clear a path across the world, or stand firm and hold your ground. With an array of long distance moves and heavy knockback attacks, your presence on the field is not to be taken lightly! Chain together your moves to make quick work of your opponents, or hunker down for a while and let the others exhaust themselves. Just because you rock doesn’t mean you’re slow; with mobility moves rivaling your fellow air and firebenders you can maneuver around obstacles with ease. The world is your playground, but try not to put too many people in the ground.

Earthbenders will have varying degrees of power depending on how much energy they put into their moves - each individual energy level will be explained in their respective areas. The Energy Range differs from Cost - these values specify what range the stages fall in when using the moves. To gain more moves, simply meet the level requirement, then head over to the bending master in Ba Sing Se to learn them. All moves listed are free beyond this requirement.
