I made a Wu Xing chart for Exalted since I can recite the Chinese version of Generating/Overcome order but never the Exalted one 🐟

Is this the cycle of elements mentioned in the 2e book about elementals?

Couldn't be; Divinininity only retreaded the elemental Essence cycling from 1e, where killing an elemental causes their elemental Essence to re-enter Creation and flow back as another elemental of the same element, sometimes even the same kind of elemental. If elemental Essence cycling worked this way, it would cycle through different elements each time.

Oh no, this one is from the 3e DB book (or the companion book I think).

I had to track it down cause I was sure there was something like that and found it. From Divininty(Yes I own a copy with the misprint on the title):
Air permeates. Earth abides. Fire burns. Water flows. Wood lives. So do the elements rest.
Air precedes water. Water precedes earth. Earth precedes wood. Wood precedes fire. Fire precedes Calibration. So do the seasons proceed.
Wood refreshes air. Air fans fire. Fire renews earth. Earth channels water. Water feeds wood. So do the elements cultivate.
Fire consumes wood. Wood covers earth. Earth blocks air. Air freezes water. Water drowns fire. So do the elements destroy.

These are but three and one of the 25 harmonious and 5 impeded elemental cycles of Creation.
