  • Elemental Concentration. The elemental does not need to concentrate on conjure elemental spells that it casts.
  • Flyby. The elemental doesn’t provoke opportunity attacks when it flies out of an enemy’s reach.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The elemental’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 22). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
  • Legendary Resistance (3/Day). If the elemental fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.
  • Magic Resistance. The elemental has advantage on saving throws made against spells and other magical effects.
  • Magic Weapons. The elemental’s weapon attacks are magical.
  • Mixed Tongue. The elemental prefers to speak in a hybrid of Aquan and Ignan. Creatures that know both languages have advantage on Wisdom (Insight) and Charisma checks made against the elemental.
  • Steamsight. The elemental can see perfectly through fog, mist, and steam.


In the broken places where the Plane of Fire and Plane of Water slam into one another the most terrible instances of elemental fury never end, instead becoming relentless, thinking lightning storms of steam and rage. These epic elementals tend to take on avian forms and utterly dominate the skies, prowling over oceans in search of prey of any kind, shredding apart ships and spawning legends of vengeful sea gods in many worlds. Steamrages are greatly offended by the presence of islands and attempt to destroy them, or at the very least eliminate any living thing upon them.
