Dimmed Vision (Su)

When a shadow elemental deals shadow damage to a creature, that creature must succeed on a Fortitude save or be dimmed for 1 round. The save DC is listed in the elemental’s stat block and is Constitution-based.

See in Darkness (Su)

A shadow elemental can see perfectly in darkness of any kind, including that created by deeper darkness.

Shadow Blend (Su)

In any condition of illumination other than full daylight, a shadow elemental disappears into the shadows, giving it concealment (20% miss chance). Artificial illumination, even a light spell, does not negate this ability, a daylight spell, however, does. A shadow elemental can suspend or resume this ability as a free action.

Speak No Evil (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds, the shadow elemental causes her foe to be silent. She can make a ranged touch attack (+11), hitting a foe up to 30 feet away. The subject takes 5d6 points of shadow damage and the target must make a Will save (DC 19) or be inflicted with Silence status effect for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 21).
