Abyss creatures that utilize Hydro energy in battle.
Stories circulate among adventurers that Abyss Mages are at the lowest rung of the Abyss Order's hierarchy and that they roam the various lands to scheme fell deeds of destruction. Though they also often make fun of these Abyss Mages, saying that the most harm they can do is to cause rheumatism or a common cold, their power is not to be underestimated.

Hydro Abyss Mages are Elite Enemies that are part of the Abyss Mages enemy group and the The Abyss family.

Abilities and Attacks

  • Hydro Shield: Upon initiating combat, the Hydro Abyss Mage immediately gains a Hydro Shield, protecting it from damage. The shield takes damage from certain Elemental Reactions and suffers additional damage based on the strength of the attacks it receives. This shield is weakest to Cryo.
  • Normal Attack: Shoots a water projectile at the target, dealing 100% ATK as Hydro DMG
  • Special Attack - Homing Bubble: Releases a homing bubble that deals 100% ATK as Hydro DMG on impact and traps the target inside. These bubbles can also trap other small enemies if they come in contact. The homing bubble itself is very fragile and will pop when coming into contact on anything with a hitbox aside from the player. The player can use AoE or ranged attacks can help pop it from a distance, or make the bubble run into another enemy or object.
  • Teleportation: If the target is too far from the mage, it clutches its mask and teleports directly in front of the target, dealing 100% ATK as AoE Hydro DMG at its location upon reappearance. The mage can also teleport away from the player to avoid attacks when vulnerable.
  • Revival: If the mage is left alone after its shield is destroyed, summons a large amount of bubbles around it which deal 100% ATK as Hydro DMG on impact and traps the target inside. During this attack, the mage's Interruption Resistance is increased. If the mage is not staggered or defeated within 10 seconds, it regains a Hydro Shield, dealing 200% ATK as AoE Hydro DMG.



  • Cryo attacks are the most effective at destroying the Hydro shield by triggering the Frozen reaction. Furthermore, the Mage is rendered immobile.
  • Pyro attacks cause Vaporize, dealing moderate damage to its shield.
  • Electro attacks can deal continuous but low damage to its shield by causing the Electro-Charged reaction.
  • A Melt reaction triggered by applying Pyro to a Frozen Hydro Abyss Mage will not damage its shield.
