The Elementalist is a class in South Park: The Fractured But Whole. It is part of the second set of classes unlocked, allowing The New Kid to select it after the Origins 2: New Beginnings mission.

Wonder Tweek is classified as an Elementalist, while Human Kite is classified as an Elementalist/Blaster hybrid.

Tactics

Elementalists have lower damage output than most other classes, but they compensate with effective support skills. Ice Prison effectively allows them to render an opponent helpless for a turn (assuming that they aren't Chill-resistant), while Hydro Helper enables them to keep themselves healthy or support teammates. Sand Trap is mainly used when Ice Prison is recharging and the New Kid's allies don't need Hydro Helper at the moment, but it's also a decent attack to use when surrounded by foes.

Elemental Onslaught is quite weak for an Ultimate, but it has great range and inflicts both Shock and Chill on its victims. If you can cluster up a bunch of enemies before launching the Onslaught, they'll be left helpless as Shock damage devastates their ranks; this is especially useful on Mastermind difficulty, when status ailments do significantly higher damage.

Most of the Elementalist's abilities benefit from higher Brains, but Hydro Helper relies on Spunk instead. Keep this in mind when you're developing your strategies, especially if you're mix-and-matching abilities with other classes.
