The Water Elemental is an enemy from Final Fantasy XII. It is located in the West Sluice Control of the Garamsythe Waterway. It spawns abruptly in the said areas when the player has spent at least ten minutes within the Waterway. It respawns ten minutes after its last defeat, when the party enters the area. It is very tough the first time the party goes through the Garamsythe Waterway, but it is docile until attacked or there are magicks cast nearby.
The element of water, the vital element, present in all spaces where there exists life. Should a water elemental appear near to a befouled pool, it is made clear as a mountain spring, and for this, these entities are worshiped as purifiers by diverse faiths. 'As water consumeth all, and cleanseth the land, so doth the violence silence uprising, and purify thought,' says the central tenet of one such belief, much to the dismay of those caught up in its holy wars.
[view·edit·purge]An elemental is a mythic being described in occult and alchemical works from around the time of the European Renaissance and particularly elaborated in the 16th century works of Paracelsus.
