    What is your suggestion?
    I think the move SeismicSense when used while on the ground, all players around the user who are touching the ground gets a spectral effect for a few seconds. This would be a great passive ability where this effect will apply to anyone who attacks the user until the user is no longer combat logged. This could be a bit annoying, so a way to turn this passive off and on would be nice. I think this being a passive ability is the best way to implement this into bending, but this ability could either be activated through the move SeismicSense (left click), or a combo. Otiza said this ability should tell you what the other player/players are using, I do not really know how this will be displayed.

    Why do we need this? or What made you post this suggestion?
    SeismicSense is what Toph used in the series to sense people through the ground. This would be a cool cannon ability, that would give earth an advantage in knowing where the enemy is, even behind walls. An example of this where this could work well is when earth is hiding behind a raiseearth wall and charging an earth smash. The enemy will have the spectral effect, so when the earth bender is launched up, it will know where the enemy is before firing the earth smash.

    What are the possible negative aspects of your suggestion?
    It might not work very well against air, since air benders rarely touch the ground.

    What are the positive aspects of your suggestion?
    It will be a cool cannon ability to the series, that I do not think could ever be op.

    How can this suggestions be achieved on the server?
    When the player is touching the ground all other players who touch the ground have spectral effect. This could either be done through it being a passive, clicking with the SeismiSense move, or it being a combo.

    +1 to that, I think seismicsense should see PVP sides not just mining sides.

    Not many earth benders had SeismicSense, I just used Toph as an example. Aang could use SeismicSense and Aang isn't blind. Also Toph's daughters can use SeismicSense. Also being blind the whole fight just to be able to see your enemy through walls does not seem worth it.

    then all earthbenders would walk around blind which isn't fair. I already tried that request and it was stupid

    Not all earth benders could do the seismic sense. Aang toph and Bumi are the only ones who could do it in the entire show of avatar [i prob missed out a few who could] .

    Only Roku could lava bend, only that weird combustion man could use combustion and only three people could blood bend (this is according to only Avatar Last Airbender). I just wanted to say how it was cool that it is a canon move, no matter how rare it is, where we also have bending on the server which is very rare in the series. Also again.. past the series Toph's daughters could use Seismic Sense as well.

    Earth can shoot earthkick and lava disc through raiseearth. When hiding behind a raiseearth, you can catapult and shoot an earthring or earthsmash already knowing where the enemy is. Also in general it gives a lot more awareness of the enemy even when they are not behind anything like when versing airbenders, they move so fast you lose sight of them, the clear spectral effect makes keeping track on them a lot easier. I think that it is important that you can turn this passive on and off, because I think it will become annoying when you do not want it active. Hopefully having cool new abilities like this will cause more people to play earth because it has always been the least popular element (well except for chi).

    This ability is not really that ground breaking or awesome, so if it is quiet a pain to code then do not bother. Cause there are other awesome earth moves that need buffing or tweaking to be usable, which requires less effort than making a whole new move. LIKE HAVE I MENTIONED HOW COOL EARTHWAVE IS, A WEEK AGO SOMEONE SHOULD ME IT CAN BE DIRECTED AND IF U TAP SHIFT, IT EXPLODES!!! There are other awesome moves that are not really good enough to be usable, it is just sad to see these in the earth move list and just ignored, I will make sure to make suggestions about them in the future.

    i think this combo/passive {whatever you decide on} would be really cool and useful for earthbenders because like timtamtatious said we would be able to do lavadisc and earthkick through raiseearth. Which overall would give us a better defense and offense knowing where our opponent is.
