Water Elementals and Ice Elementals are the level 3 creatures of Conflux. They are recruited from the Altar of Water, or the Water Elemental Conflux and Elemental Conflux on the adventure map. Water Elementals can also be summoned by the Summon Water Elemental spell.

"Water magic animates the Water Elemental. These creatures are immune to Mind, Ice Ray and Frost Ring spells, but take double damage from... Inferno... and Fireball spells. Because their form is more solid, ice elementals have the ability to throw deadly ice tridents. Additionally, they have the ability to cast the spell Protection from Water." AB manual

Special Abilities

Water and Ice Elementals are not vulnerable to Fire Wall, Land Mine and Fire Shield, although this is stated in the game manual and there is a "Vulnerable to Fire" line in the creature's information. However, they are vulnerable to Armageddon.

It should be noted, that although Ice Elementals' information states that they suffer no melee penalty, that is not true. (Horn of the Abyss Fixed in Horn of the Abyss)


Though Ice Elementals are level 3 units, the game considers them as level 4 (in creature level-based calculations and 'random monster 4' object in the map editor). (Fixed in HotA). Horn of the Abyss

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

Water Elementals should be promoted to Ice Elementals as soon as possible, since their basic version cannot shoot and is very slow. However, your main shooting force should be Storm Elementals, as they are significantly faster than Ice Elementals, having speed 8 which is excellent for a ranged unit. Storm and Ice Elementals have similar stats.

They are creatures summoned from the Elemental Plane of Water.
