|Drizz'l||Simple. I get the Earth Orb because of the whole elven thing.|

|Vilbert||Air? What am I going to do with the Air Orb? I don't actually breathe!|
|Drizz'l||These things are tied to metaphorical applications as well.|
|Drizz'l||You've probably got influence over knowledge or communication there.|

|Drizz'l||But not traveling as a whole.|
