Elementals are essentially spirits by another name and appear to be made of pure aether
. They are found across Eorzea
but are most prominent in The Black Shroud
, a forest said to be created for them specifically by Nophica
. They are revered by the citizenry of Gridania
and it is by their grace that the city-state continues to exist. The seedseers
maintain communication to them to this effect.
Some elementals may appear corrupt and others appear as mischievous sprites. It is these forms of lesser elementals that are most commonly engaged in combat.
