Water elemental is a type of monster in ADOM. The weakest of the elementals, water elementals are amphibious beings that can be found in dungeons or underwater. They can swim, naturally, and have a water breath attack. Unlike some other creatures of water, though, they are not particularly vulnerable to fire. They are found in large abundance in the Water Temple.

Monster memory[]

This elemental shifts and undulates, ebbs and flows, separates and rejoins, rises and falls, with a nearly hypnotic motion. However, the power contained beneath that smooth surface is unmistakable. As the fluid dance progresses, you hear the cracking of ice; you feel the heat of steam; and you see the destructive power of a waterfall. You can smell the tang of salt water in the air, but this is no tranquil sea!
