How Elderseal Works
Weapons that wield Dragon Damage have one of three levels of Elderseal - Low, Average, and High - indicating the rate at which the effect triggers. When Elderseal is triggered, an Elder Dragon will be briefly staggered and their special Aura will be dissipated for a short time. This has no effect on monsters that are not Elder Dragons.
The level of Elderseal wielded by a Weapon can be modified by the Elderseal Boost Skill.
