Personally, I avoid water in this game at all costs. I feel uneasy when I collect those precursor orbs near the pelican, those who are fairly close to the location where it starts spawning. I also shiver when I hear the sound of it breathing as it draws closer to you.
Why? First game I played as a young kid and the fact that it was an unbeatable and scary mob left a big impact on me.
