  • This skill can be cast on Sage's Deluge and Ninja's Watery Evasion, but it will use the cells and they will be removed after casting.
  • The number of water balls that can be launched depends on the amount of water the caster is standing in. Using higher levels of this skill without enough water will not produce the maximum number of hits.
  • There is a notable delay between the completion of casting and when water balls inflict damage. This can be used to escape or cast a second skill.
  • Unlike the majority of magic skills, water balls inflict individual damage for each ball on each impact instead of a bundle of full damage on cast completion. This gives the opportunity for the opponent to change armors or cast skills.
  • Also unlike most skills, the delay of this skill does not correspond directly to the balls impacting the target. It is possible to cast another skill before all balls have finished impacting.
  • Some monsters have a more powerful variation of this skill, which draws water from a 9x9 area under the user and launches 100 water balls.
  • In addition to Level 1 Cold Bolt and Level 1 Lightning Bolt, Super Novices also have a prerequisite of doing the Expansion Quest. Wizards only require the forementioned skills.
  • This skill can be prevented from casted by using Magnetic Earth below the caster of the skills. Note that the higher the level of Water Ball used, more cells have to be blanketed by Magnetic Earth to prevent it from being casted completely.
  • This skill can be stopped once it starts by using skills that occupies or removes ground cells, like Magnetic Earth, Fire Rain, or Crazy Vines. Since this skills consume cells 1 by 1 as its "ammunition" starting at bottom left cells and going to the right, row after row, it is better to put the cancelling skills on the top part of the Water Ball cells area, since the remaining cells is located at the top row, and the bottom row area has already been used to launch Water Ball.
