Earth Elemental Hands appear in a pair, and are also called Greater Earth Elementals. They are a unique, powerful type of Earth Elemental. Most often they are seen summoned by powerful centaur shamans, though they can appear unbound by a summoner, such as in Tangled Depths where they're smaller and accompanied by several Veteran Earth Elementals.

Earth Elemental Hands are capable of pulling the environment and wildlife around them together into a focal point above them to form a semblance of a storm. If they are destroyed, the objects they pulled will fall to create massive shockwaves.
