Okay, what kind of theory is this? Let's start with the basics. The first 5 elements everyone knows is Earth, Thunder, Water, Fire, and Air. Then what's the 6th and 7th element, let alone the 8th? The 6th and 7th Elements In A Journey Beyond quest, The Blacksmith mentions the Darkness element, which allows those influenced by the Darkness element to not be able to damage each other  . The Darkness element. This element is considered a hidden element as the player is not able to wield Darkness unlike the other 5 elements. The player resolves this Darkness element by clearing it using both dark and light items. What is the 7th element then? It is assumed to be the Light element as the Blacksmith removes this Darkness element and replaces it with Light through purification  . The Light element. Forming the 8th Element It is known that when Light and Dark collide, Corruption forms . Is Corruption then an element? Not necessarily. Corruption looks awfully similar to both Decay and Dark in the way it works in that things turn black/purple/red. However, Corruption, and to an extent, Decay, are just synonyms of just the 8th element. What is this element then? Let's explore for signs of this extremely hidden element. When doing the ONoL raid, there is a 50% chance to encounter the "Pog" room. The "Pog" room . The goal of this room is to have a player pick up a light crystal and use that light crystal to guide the rest of the raid team to the end of the room, under the overseer ("Pog" face). The twist is that only the player that picks up the light crystal can see the path and the "Pog" face as seen above decays, causing players who move during the corrupted phase to get launched into the air and take massive fall damage. The "Pog" face turns into a distinctive purple color when decayed. Let's analyze this further. What causes this decay? The Parasite. The Parasite has decayed Orphion to the point of near death, and as a result, caused a huge chunk of Gavel to decay as well . The Parasite wields the Fire element as it deals Fire damage . But is it really wielding the Fire element? Let's look at The Parasite at a much closer view: The Parasite . See those purple spots? That's similar to the "Pog" room! You don't see it's eyes? Allow me to highlight it for you. The Parasite is pogging! Just like the "Pog" room! Wait a minute... So since The Parasite is pogging, and the "Pog" room is directly influenced by The Parasite, then that means it must be wielding something else other than Fire... No it's not decay... It's... The Pog element. I'm sorry, what? Yes, the Pog element. Here's more evidence of Corruption and Decay actually wielding the Pog element: Bak'al wielding the Pog element. Comes from Corruption. Corrupter of Worlds wielding its hidden power of the Pog element. Comes from Corruption. Wielding the Pog Element Let's look back at A Journey Beyond. Remember how the Blacksmith purified you? He did not use Light to purify the player. Light would corrupt the player instead because the player still has Darkness. Instead, he used it as a way to distract the player from the real element he was using. The Pog element. The Pog element is not able to kill unlike the Darkness and Light elements, but it is able to both clear the Darkness element and use mind control. How so? After the "purification", Elphaba mentions that she doesn't "feel that different. Well... I guess there's only one way to find out." . Yet notice that Elphaba fell easily to the illusion that her liver was "stolen" by the bugs. This is direct influence of the Pog element, mind controlling Elphaba to her eventual death. Look at A Journey Further. When the player kills Aledar at the sacrifice altar to obtain his soul to open EO, the soul is merely an illusion to both the player and Aledar . How so? Notice that when the player dies, the player loses Soul Points. When the player reaches 1 Soul Point, the player doesn't lose anymore and always respawns, with, of course, literally their entire inventory missing . Death then, is merely an illusion, which is directly influenced by the Pog element that the Blacksmith had used on the player earlier. Where does Aledar actually go then? We don't know. What about the player with respect to the Pog element? Can the player wield it? No. Why? Everything within Wynncraft can eventually be boiled down to an illusion. Who wields this illusion? Salted. Oh god oh fuck... Salted pogging in Shattered Minds . No no no no... AARONTTI WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!?! NOW HE'S MIND CONTROLLING US TO GET OUR CREDIT CARDS OUT!!! WAIT NO THAT'S NOT JUST CAUSED BY AARONTTI!!! @Kiocifer WHY?!?!?!?!?!?!?! WAIT. KIO MADE :SALTEDPOG3:. THEN THAT MEANS... KIO IS THE TRUE WIELDER OF THE POG ELEMENT?!?!?!
