Water Vellumental - Battle Strategy & Tips

Water Vellumental Overall Tips

  • Waterspouts wash away panels
  • Jump attack when the boss takes flight
  • Use Vellumental Power when the boss's belly is full
  • Use 1000 Fold Arm after Mega Wave

Waterspouts Wash Away Panels

Wash away

The waterspouts placed on the puzzle will push out all icons in front of them - avoid using panels located in the path of these spouts!

Use Jump Attacks To Bring It Down To The Ground

Use Jump Attacks To Bring It Down To The Ground

The Water Vellumental has a tendency to stay in the air, making it impossible to hit with the hammer. Bring it down to the ground first by using a jump attack on it, such as with the Shiny Boots.

Stores Water For 3 Turns, Then Unleashes It

Make sure to keep your health up during the 4th turn of the Water Vellumental because it will unleash a huge wave of water that surrounds the whole arena!

Use Vellumental Power When Boss Is Full Of Water


When Water Vellumental's belly is completely filled up with water, it will use Big Wave (and eventually Mega Wave, Giga Wave, and Ultimate Wave), all of which deal devastating damage. You can dodge these move by stepping on the green Vellumental Power magic circle and summoning a slab of rock to stand on.

Use 1000 Fold Arm Right After Big Wave


The best timing to use 1000 fold arms is right after the Water Vellumental uses Big Wave and become drained. Activate 1000 Fold Arms by picking up "On" icon and use 1000 Fold Arms by reaching 1000 Fold Arms magic circle.

About Ring Boards

We are currently unsure what parts of the board will remain the same and what parts will change when different players attempt the same boss. There is a chance rings the rings you get may have slightly different tiles. Subsequent rings will also likely have different layouts depending on your previous moves!
