Water elementals are beings of concentrated water that mages have taken upon summoning from the Elemental Planes. They are then bound to the mage's will and can be controlled to attack foes and perform tasks. In World of Warcraft, Water Elementals can be summoned by Frost mages as permanent pets. They assist the mage in combat by dealing damage to foes with their Waterbolt attack, as well as using their Freeze ability to root targets and open up combos with spells like Ice Lance.
