Primal Wave is a monsters-only spell that causes massive amounts of water to surge into you, dealing significant damage, pushing you around, and turning the terrain beneath and near you to shallow water (if it isn't already). Fortunately, it cannot knock you into deep water, and it deals 40% less damage if your character is either aquatic (merfolk, octopode, barachi, Ice Form) or does not breathe (gray draconian, gargoyle, mummy, vampire, ghoul, Necromutation, Statue Form).

The following enemies cast Primal Wave:

You can produce a primal wave by evoking a phial of floods. This will also spawn one to two water elementals.
