The Pre-Searing Bestiary, Part 2

In this post: Elementals that do not have the elemental type. Elementals are different things in Guild Wars than in D&D. In D&D, an elemental is a creature from an elemental plane, made of that plane’s essence. In Guild Wars, an elemental is a creature spontaneously created by elementalist magic, usually on the prime material. The closest two equivalents in D&D types to the Guild Wars version of an elemental are constructs and monstrosities. By the description alone, they fit monstrosities a little better, but they have much more in common with the monsters in the construct type than in the monstrosity type.

Also, drakes and grawl.
