The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Massive and thick, with broad shoulders but no apparent head, the earth elemental appears to be a composite of the earth itself. A large, craggy maw in the middle of the elemental's chest appears to be the creature's mouth, and the earth elemental's huge feet and giant-sized fists look like they would pulverize flesh without much effort at all.
Greater earth elementals have DFRedux which will reduce the damage factors of weapons, including bolt spells, by 30% for AS-based attacks. This is in addition to their natural full plate equivalent armor.

- Elementals attack with both fists, and have earth flares:
A greater earth elemental pounds at you with its heavy earthen fists!
AS: +399 vs DS: +333 with AvD: +32 + d100 roll: +77 = +175
... and hits for 13 points of damage!
Torn muscle in your left leg!
AS: +399 vs DS: +325 with AvD: +32 + d100 roll: +68 = +174
... and hits for 11 points of damage!
Jarring blow to your back.
** A surge of elemental energy bursts from the earth elemental's fist! **
... 15 points of damage!
Nasty blow to your back!
You are stunned for 1 round!
- Attacking the elemental can result in either your attack deflecting off its side, or connecting with a rocky protrusion and inducing roundtime:
You swing a white-hafted broad silver maul at a greater earth elemental!
Your maul is deflected harmlessly off of the the earth elemental's side!
You strike the earth elemental, but your maul connects awkwardly with a rocky protrusion! The jarring strike numbs your grasp!
Roundtime: 3 sec.
Roundtime: 5 sec.
