First game

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

Ellight (Japanese: エルライト Ellight) is a light magic tome exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is the second "stage" in the hierarchy of light magic, more powerful than the basic Light tome, and is the counterpart of Elfire, Elthunder and Elwind. Statistically, it functions similarly to Steel Swords, possessing lower might and weight relative to higher hit compared to its counterpart tomes.
