    I simply think it's a mistake by the web news guy.

    If you succeed in total water bombing annihilation and manage to destroy the monsters using the water balloons, you will have the chance to receive these titles:

    'Slick as Summer Ice: Used 10 Water Balloons'
    'Summer Hydromaniac: Used 100 Water Balloons'

    And once you’ve received the ‘Summer Flu’ title, go to the Strange Traveler and receive the cool Marine T-shirt as your reward!


    We know that you get the Marine T-shirt once you get the Summer Hydromanic title.

    Also it's not listed on title sites either:

    You also get "Water Balloon Brigade" for defeating 10 enemies using Water Balloons. I'll repeat that you actually have to kill 10 enemies.

    And there's also "The Oversoaker" for getting 300 Water Balloon kills (discovered at 20 kills). They don't scale with the new Secondary Weapon skill, so it's not any easier than the last time we had water balloons. I think last time we got two types of water balloons a day too.

    Unfortunately, if you're starting out, that wouldn't be achievable with this event alone since it only lasts 20 days, you can only obtain 10 water balloons each day, and the water balloons can't be traded.

    "The Oversoaker" title is proving to be a lot harder now. When this title first appear (before the Rise update) it was easier to kill certain enemies with the water balloon. You could target the archers and kill them in two balloons. Now (post-Rise) they don't do enough damage (~150 HP. Even with secondary weapon proficiency maxed it doesnt change the multiplier like it does for other secondaries). Your better off targeting the spiders. But those buggers are harder to hit. Would probably need about 1000 balloons back-stocked to get this title post-Rise.

    Disregarding that there isn't nearly enough being given out during the event, I've been trying to only do last hits with the water balloons as anything that's not a kill is a waste. For kobold archers I grab them and smack them once before letting them go and throwing a balloon. For regular kobolds and icedredges, I count the damage from attacks. Cave wisps in HH have too much HP but, as Emerthyst says, Ainle's regular wisps can be one shot.

    When the water balloons were first given out in decent numbers and you could bring Normal difficulty amounts of secondary weapons, I'd take my time aiming at the starting spiders in Lionotus. Now it's not worth it.

    How I got the first 10 easily is I actually just use low level gear and my gnoll pet. I got the boss to about half a bar and let my gnoll pet have at him. Because pets can't deal the finishing blow it leaves the boss with a sliver of health and then I just balloon it. I was too lazy to run through full areas so I just did ex-raids, but I think it works for normal battles as well.

    I think it's glitched. I didn't get it at first too but the next day I got the shirt.

    I found a great map to do is Ulchas's Relic. In the first room you get 3 wisps. After clearing that room and head down the path you can go up a ladder and kill another 3 wisps. Thank you Emer!

    It's funny that you can kill the wisps in Ainle with 1 shot but not in HH. Post rise they buffed most enemies to match the new damage system but it looks like they overlooked these Ainle wisps.

    Annoying that these balloons are capped at 5 per run. Back in the day when you could bring 14 on easy mode...
