In addition to the direct elements, there are outlying items:

Transmuted combinations
Limiting items

These are primarily drops from Heroic instance and raid bosses, though other means of acquiring them exist. They are not necessarily 'elemental' in nature, but are often thought of in that fashion.

Acquiring elemental items

Level 25, 45, and 55 items can be acquired by looting elementals of the appropriate varieties. Generally, the higher level the mob, the greater the chance of getting that item.

Nature aspected items can be gained from bog monsters, treants, and similar creatures. Undeath aspected items can be gained from various scourge creatures (generally in Eastern Plaguelands and the two instances, Scholomance and Stratholme).

Level 65 and 75 items can also be gained from elemental type creatures, including 'mana elementals'. For this purpose, Voidwalker type creatures count as 'shadow elementals'. In addition, earth and fire elements can be acquired through mining, and life elements through herbalism. Further, Engineers can use the Zapthrottle Mote Extractor to harvest various varieties of mote or crystallized substance from Transmutation Master

Lastly, many elemental items can be transmuted from one form to another through use of the Alchemy skill.
