Acid Droplet (Su)

Once every 1d2 rounds, a water elemental can drench a single enemy with acid water within 30 feet for 4d6 points of water damage and is inflicted with the Poison status effect for 1d4 rounds unless they make a Fortitude save (DC 16) to negate the status effect. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 2nd level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 19).

Congeal Water (Su)

Once every 1d6+1 rounds, the elemental can surround a creature in a thin layer of magically viscous water. A target that fails the Reflex save (DC 16) becomes entangled and must hold its breath or risk drowning. The target or an adjacent creature can spend a full-round action on its turn scraping off the clinging fluid, allowing a new Reflex save with a +2 bonus; otherwise, the effect lasts for 1d4 minutes. The save DC is Wisdom-based. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 17).

Drench (Ex)

The elemental’s touch puts out non-magical flames of Large size or smaller. The creature can dispel magical fire it touches as dispel (caster level equals elemental’s HD).

Vortex (Su)

A water elemental can create a whirlpool as a standard action, at will. This ability functions identically to the whirlwind special attack, but can only form underwater and cannot leave the water.

Water Mastery (Ex)

A water elemental gains a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls if both it and its opponent are touching water. If the opponent or the elemental is touching the ground, the element takes a -4 penalty on attack and damage rolls. These modifiers apply to bull rush and overrun maneuvers, whether the elemental is initiating or resisting these kinds of attacks.
