Are these Goblins constantly on fire?

Harvestella is quite the unconventional farming simulator due to its inclusion of combat. The game features real-time combat with monsters, allowing you to use abilities and healing to gain the upper hand. You can view an enemy's health bar during fights to ascertain their level and current HP. However, there are small colored icons that appear above these health bars. Here is an explanation of the enemy health bar icons in Harvestella.

The small icons above enemy health bars indicate their elemental weakness. If you have discovered an element that a certain type of enemy is vulnerable to, it will hover over its health bar as a reminder. Striking an enemy with their weak element deals massive damage and can be a game changer if used strategically. It functions similarly to a critical hit.

You should note that these icons will only appear if you have previously discovered the enemy's weakness. If an enemy has no elemental icon over their health bar, it does not necessarily mean that it lacks a weakness but that you have yet to learn it. During the early hours of Harvestella, it is wise to figure out enemy vulnerabilities when monsters are still fairly easy to defeat. This prevents heartache later on while simultaneously granting you helpful information.
