Earth Mastery (Ex): An earth elemental gains a +1 attack and damage bonus if both it and its foe touch the ground. If an opponent is airborne or waterborne, the elemental suffers a -4 penalty to attack and damage. (These modifiers are not included in the statistics block.)
Push (Ex): An earth elemental can start a bull rush maneuver without provoking an attack of opportunity. The combat modifiers given in Earth Mastery, above, also apply to the elemental's opposed Strength checks.
Elemental: Immune to poison, sleep, paralysis, and stun. Not subject to critical hits.
Though an earth elemental moves slowly it is a relentless opponent. It can travel though solid ground or stone as easily as humans walk on the earth's surface. It cannot swim, however, and, must either walk around a body of water or go through the ground under it. An earth elemental can move along the bottom of a body of water but prefers not to.
