Suikoden Tierkreis takes place in an alternate universe where Runes dont exist, instead they have the Marks of the Stars which is a main plot point throughout the game. This game is not a traditional Suikoden series in which you have your levels of magic, instead it is more similar to traditional J-Rpgs in which you have a MP.

Aren't Liu's offensive spells Earth-based?

there is reference to all kinds of elemental magic in this game. one of the cut scenes shows wicked earth spell. also, a trading item says it's a wind-magic stone or something to that effect. however, in terms of the battle system, i think the only "elements" that exist are the physical attack ones (slash, pierce, strike, none). Magic probably just uses the caster's magic power vs the enemy's mdf.

You're right. Magic has reduced exposure in this game including the elements. There aren't too much offensive spells either and added mostly useless attack skills.

I think the main reason there is no runes on this game is because konami wants to make a new suikoden concept, hence the name "TIERKRIES" not the 6th suikoden. So there probably will be a second TIERKRIES.

While some magic blatantly says it does fire or water damage, I've yet to see any major influence from those elements. Even using water on an obviously fish-based boss didn't do much less damage than when that character usually used that attack on regular enemies.
