Allow a nonpathed sorcerer or wizard with 28 levels and the conjuration line of feats to summon the Monolithic Elementals.

Erghh... just take Conj foci?

As Lorkas rightly pointed me out Monolithic are Wild Mage only.
Thanks Lorkas You are like an encyclopedia yourself!

Coming back to the question. The "Monolythic" versions are more or less "temporary" or rather burst versions of the summon creature line, we don't want them to become the norm for casters.

Ancient Elementals are "good enough" as a full-time summon if You struggle with an area maybe You should revise Your tactics or better even bring friends instead of relaying on a Summon IX creature to power You through.
