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
- Aquamancers are around the level of merfolk javelineers in threat. Their spells hit very hard from a distance, and the ability to dump you in water is extremely dangerous when near water nymphs or other merfolk.
- Their spells check three resistances: cold resistance, steam resistance, and drowning (resisted by being unbreathing or amphibious). It's unlikely for a character to have all three, so expect spikes of damage from time to time.
- Flying is nice - you still take full damage from Primal Wave, but avoid being stuck in water.
- Merfolk aquamancers often come with nice rapiers, so Short Blade specialists should make sure they kill them somewhere their loot is accessible.
