It's hard to define its usefulness. It can serve as a starter for other spells that profit from wet ground, or it can be used to remove negative effects from an ally and make him temporarily immune to fire. It all depends on the situation on the battlefield, so watch your opponents, learn their weaknesses, and only then use your spell. Take into consideration a very long cooling time.

Similar to First Aid, but does not deal with negative effects as effectively. Use the spell to heal injured allies, or remove poison or bleeding. The Cooling Time is rather long, so use the spell wisely and don't spend it on characters that receive minor injuries.

Magic Armor

Comment

One of the most essential spells that one can use from the very beginning if only picks the right class. Due to its specific range and requirements, it works well when your opponent is located in such a way that neither close distance or range warriors cannot reach him. It's best to strike characters with no magic abilities. Even if we do not succeed in freezing the opponent, the ground will be affected. Thus it is highly possible that he will fall over when he tries to move. It's such a powerful spell that its cost and cooling time ought to be modified.

Another spell based on water that can remove unwanted effects from our ally. One should draw his/her attention to it, as increased Magic Armor will greatly reduce or even make the hero immune to other effects for as long as the aura is active. Although it is cheap, the cooling time is long. It's best for characters engaging in close combat, who want to reduce distance to opponents who fight with magic.

It's a must have for every hero who specializes in hydrosophist magic. Just remember to mark the casting hero if you want to be the target of the spell. Otherwise, all the nearby allies and team members will be healed, but not the casting character.

This spell is especially effective when combined with other effects or when you want to slow down your foes who want to engage in close combat. Just keep in mind that the entire area will be frozen and if you try to move, you may fall as well. It's best to use it as a last resort or to combine it with teleport, to move your allies away from the affected area.

A powerful spell that is only limited by its range. Freezing your foes can be the key to cast other spells or eliminate your opponents when they are unable to defend themselves. Its low cost and Cooling Time make it a perfect spell to start or end a battle.
