The Dear Element is a boss monster in Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland.
A high level elemental enemy found only at the Farthest Garden. Meruru will get a monster hunting kingdom development quest named "Ancient Spirit" to hunt the Dear Element after the kingdom reaches rank VIII.
This is a difficult monster hunting request, as the Dear Element is a worthy advesary. It is physically strong, very defensable and also fast. The Dear Element attacks quite frequently, quite often twice in the same turn.
Has an array of different skills and attacks. "Supersonic Arrow" will hit all party members with a devastating physical attack that will also lower the party's stats. "Jewel Splash" is a multi targeting physical attack. "Jewel Stomp" is a single target physical attack which can also put a target to sleep. "Healing Light" can heal the Dear Element's health by a few hundred points.
It it highly recommended to bring high level healing and attack items to help with this fight. When defeated, it is the only enemy in the game capable of dropping the Azure Wing.
