― Cho'gall, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
"Only rarely have I found the demon-couplers themselves at these posts, and never at one more than a league from Ceoris itself. When they are present, one must fear the fire they cast from their fingers, the earth they move beneath your feet, the wind that cuts flesh like an oft-bloodied blade, and the water that rises up in the back of your throat, drowning you from within."
― Vampire: The Dark Ages - House Of Tremere

User can create, shape and manipulate the basic elements of nature, the rudimentary, simplest or essential parts/principles of which nature consists. The four principal, basic elements and their states are:

  1. Solid (Earth Manipulation)
  2. Liquid (Water Manipulation)
  3. Gas (Air Manipulation)
  4. Plasma (Fire Manipulation)

Universe Differences

Energy is often considered to be a fifth element, similar to plasma, in some universes. Other energies (such as Magic, or Cosmic Manipulation) may be thought of as elements, but are energy. These are more specific and exotic and thus much rarer powers.
