The Earth Mage is something like a support mage. He can entangle his target with 5 layers of crushing vines. Once Garrett is entangled his movement speed is slowed down and he is unable to attack. He must untwist each layer of vine in order to get back to normal state while taking minor damage. But if shot with another batch of vines while he is untangling, the layers will accumulate. For example, if Garrett has 2 more layers to break through and is hit by the shot again he will have 7 in total. This works in the same way as the Chaos Spiders' entangling web attack. Even though his attack is quite nasty, it is slow and has a short range, thus one can easily avoid it. Even if one gets caught in the crushing vines, he can get untangled fast, but the school of Earth magic can be devastating in combination with fire or water.
