Default Useful underwater battle-spells

Hello guys, I'm trying to list the most useful spells to cast against enemy fishes. So fire like spells will not be cast at all. But anyone knows why lighting bolt will work, while Thunder strike will not?

Friendly Currents is good

Water Strike

Summon Water Elementals

I think Summon Sharks is useful on occassion too - but I think it can backfire, also?

Personally, I've always felt like underwater battle spells were sorely lacking- especially for Water magic. I remember getting very frustrated at the AI during a long battle as it had my mages casting Encase in Ice on enemy leviathans again and again...

Fighting underwater is a rather dumbed down affair to begin with. No missile weapons to speak of and not a lot of magic that works. For the most part it's just who has the bigger mass of melee troops. Sermon of Courage can be useful though since it's just a big melee in the middle of the battleground anyway.

I know they have been said but,
Freindly Currents- battlefeild wide, very nice, I just use that trident that does it for me
Water Elementals- Awesome, they have great regen underwater
Protection and mass pro- When you have a horde of those crappy knife weilding guys this is the best.

My guess about lit bolt vs thunder strike is that Lightning bolt comes from the caster while thunder strike come from the heavens, That is a long way to travel through water....

Thank You all guys,
I agree with "For the most part it's just who has the bigger mass of melee troops"
Summon Sharks and Sermon of Courage are a very good strategy. Anyway I find useless to recruit amphibian units. It is much better to craft some magic items with water-breathing, to give to the commanders and going 20.000 leagues beneath the se

The sentence in the quote belongs to Antpile.
Instead, if you talk about "20.000 leagues beneath the sea", it's a cite of the famous novel by Jules Verne. Anyway the correct title should be "The Extraordinary Journeys: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea"...
