After his air elemental was defeated by the Hero , Ad Avis summoned an earth elemental to attack the city of Shapeir. The Hero destroyed it with fire and put the dirt in a cloth sack he'd purchased from Kiram. He then spread the elemental's remains across the roots of the tree-woman Julanar.
The earth elemental is the third elemental the player must defeat in Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire. This elemental, even more so than any of the others, is defeated in a class-specific method. The thief receives Powder of Burning from Harik Attar, the fighter borrows Soulforge from Rasha Rakeesh SahTarna, and the wizard must cast Flame Dart.
