It is possible that the elementals of Azeroth have formed a hierarchy within their respective region of the Elemental Plane, explaining their ranks and titles. Powerful elemental beings have titles such as Baron, Lord, and Duke. The most powerful ones are known as elemental princes, and they are usually the offspring of the Elemental Lords.

Hierarchy in the RPG

The RPG Icon 16x36.png This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

At the lowest level are elemental sprites, tiny creatures that exist as a living aspect akin to their element. Mephits and lesser elementals are next in power, followed by others in order of strength. Other types of elemental kin, such as revenants, djinni, xorn, phoenixes and salamanders, can also be found in various levels of strength. At the top reside the elemental princes: unique, named beings with special abilities and great powers, often exceeding those of the elder elementals.[7]
