Kadita becomes a mermaid and summons an ocean wave. She then rides on the wave, dealing Magic Damage to enemies and slows them. She gains immunity to all crowd control skills and reduces the damage taken when she is inside the waves. She can re-cast this skill or use other skills to immediately get off the wave, then the wave travels in the set direction to deal continuous damage.
Skill 2 - Breath of the Ocean
Kadita summons marks a designated area. After a period of time, an ocean wave surges out of the ground to deal Magic Damage and knocks an enemy into the air for several seconds. Kadita can cast this skill during "Breath of the Ocean". By doing so. she releases it at the place she stands.
Skill 3 - Rough Waves
With the might of the ocean at her command. Kadita summons a tsunami to crush nearby enemies. Each wave deals Magic Damage. The more waves an enemy takes, the more damage they take. The tsunami then returns to her and deals Magic Damage to enemies on the path. Damage dealt to the same enemy decays.
Passive - Thalassophobia
