A fire elemental deals fire damage in addition to damage dealt on a successful hit in melee. Those affected by the burn ability must also succeed on a Reflex save or catch fire, taking the listed damage for an additional 1d4 rounds at the start of its turn. A burning creature can attempt a new save as a full-round action. Dropping and rolling on the ground grants a +4 bonus on this save. Creatures that hit a burning creature with natural weapons or unarmed attacks take fire damage though hit by the burning creature and must make a Reflex save to avoid catching on fire. See Burn for more details.
Once every 1d2 rounds, a fire elemental generates a searing explosion of flame that detonates with a low roar and deals 5d8 points of fire damage to every creature within the 20-ft.-radius. Every creature caught in the explosion must make a Reflex save (DC 17) to take half damage. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 21).
Gates of Hades (Su)
Once every 1d4 rounds, the fire elemental can launch an explosive fireball within a 100 ft. in a 20-ft.-radius. Creatures within the area of effect take 8d6 points of fire damage and inflicts the Burning status effect. A successful Reflex save (DC 17) reduces the damage by half and negates the status effect. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 23).
