A lightning elemental can send out a pulse of electricity through its whiskers at a single target within 30 ft. The lightning elmental must make a ranged touch attack (+25), if it hits, the target takes 3d6 points of lightning damage and must make a Fortitude save (DC 23) or be inflicted with Immobilize status for 1d4 rounds. The save DC is Intelligence-based. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 21).

Metal Mastery (Ex)

A lightning elemental gains a +3 bonus on attack rolls if its opponent is wearing metal armor, is wielding a metal weapon, or is made of metal (such as an iron giant).

Spark Leap (Ex)

A lightning elemental gains a +10 bonus on bull rush, disarm, overrun, and trip attacks when it charges a creature against whom its metal mastery ability applies.

Umbral Storm (Su)

Once every 1d3 rounds, A lightning elemental can unleash a blinding lightning burst against a group of targets within 50 feet in a 20-ft.-radius burst.

A successful Reflex (DC 23) halves the damage and negates the status effect. The save DC is Intelligence-based Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 23).
