Bestial Rags and Elementalist Shifters

So, do Bestial Rags work for the minor and major forms of Elementalist Shifters?

Bestial Rags wrote:
These tattered and ragged garments extend the duration of a shifter’s bestial transformations, allowing her to shift into her aspects’ minor forms for 5 additional minutes per day. Each set of bestial rags is also tied to a specific aspect, typically being made of the hide of that creature and embossed with crude pictograms of it, allowing a shifter to assume that aspect’s minor and major form, as appropriate for her level. If the shifter already has the ability to shift into that form, that aspect’s major form functions as if she were 2 levels higher.

And here's a link to Elementalist Shifter

I think it should work because the Rags don't specify Animal Aspect, just Aspect, so the Elemental Aspects should still apply. Thoughts?

Bonus question: none of the online resources seem to actually specify what the Elemental Strike added damage types for the Elemental Aspects are, and I don't have my hardcover handy. Fire is obvious, and my assumptions for Air, Earth, and Water would be Electric, Acid, and Cold, respectively. Is that correct?

Agreed. The "bestial" part is non-binding fluff.

Yeah, they kinda left that out. Your assumptions are correct.

Same question with Vermin Shifters (which are an amazing 1-level dip btw)
