Tips & Tricks
See invisible, flying (to avoid being stuck in shallow water the entire fight), and the means to kill her quickly are all highly recommended before taking her on. Between her high HP and decent EV, she can be tricky. Her water elementals deal surprising amounts of damage, and she can summon a lot of them. If you're in melee with her while in water, both she and her elementals can outrun you; some form of haste or other escape may be necessary. Note that she lacks any resistances; poison can be very effective in taking her down, possibly after you have had to flee from her and her summons. Other area-of-effect spells can help deal with both her and her entourage at the same time. It's often easier to pick off a few members of her army at a time before fleeing back upstairs to heal.
