Useful Info

Merfolk aquamancers are aggressive casters that provide support for other merfolk opponents. They can deal steam, cold, or physical damage, and can temporarily turn perfectly safe terrain into shallow water or push you around the field. They can be found almost exclusively in the Shoals.

Tips & Tricks

  • Without cold resistance and steam resistance, aquamancers can be even worse than merfolk javelineers. Their ability to suddenly dump you in water is extremely dangerous if you're engaged in melee with water nymphs or other merfolk or at the time.
  • While you'll still take damage from Primal Wave, fighting them while flying means you won't have to stand around in shallow water after getting hit.
  • Merfolk aquamancers often come with nice cutlasses, so Short Blade specialists should make sure they kill them someplace where their loot is accessible.
