Water Elemental (Warcraft I)
- For lore about water elementals, see Water elemental.
|Unlocked in||Rockard and Stonard|
These creatures are made of the magical essence of water. Once created, they are loyal servants, and will unerringly do the bidding of their masters. Should they escape the control of their master, they become free creatures to do as they will. They are excellent fighters and will defend those whom they serve to the death.
These are creations of Human magiks. Occasionally found in the service of their Conjurers, these simulacrums have the powers of water to use as they will. When found uncontrolled, they prove to be difficult to disperse, as they gain some semblance of independent thought and motivation. In either case, these elementals will attack until they are destroyed or their foe is dead.
Water Elementals are very heavy damage giving ranged units which can form the main attacking body of an attacking force. Better used in groups, and more effective in doing so than Daemons, they can be used to send invisible strikes at critical points of the enemy's city via Clerics. Water Elementals are slightly weaker than Daemons, but their ranged attack is sometimes a huge asset.
