They say the human body is 70% water. Clearly they are underachieving.

You transform into a being not unlike a water elemental. In this state you can pass through holes or narrow openings as small as 1 inch in diameter. You are immune to polymorphing and stunning as well as critical hits and flanking. You cannot be grappled as you flow out of their hands. You gain a swim speed equal to your land speed, and you have no need to breathe. You count as a Water subtype creature for the duration.

You lose any bonus to armor or natural armor as they become fluid. Any held objects such as weapons can shift between liquid and solid states as a swift action for the duration of the spell, and dropped items become solid after 1 round out of your hand. You can attack, but you are unable to speak (and thus may be unable to cast spells) in this form.

By increasing the spell level by one, you can retain the ability to speak (and are able to speak Aquan even if you do not know it). You count as an elemental for the purpose of interacting with spells and effects, and become immune to poison, sleep, and paralysis.

By increasing the spell level by one, you can change between solid and liquid form as a move action without dismissing the spell.

By increasing the spell level by two, you can attempt to drown creatures you grapple. Creatures you grapple must hold their breath or risk drowning. If you make a successful grapple check while pinning a creature, you force their mouth open and they begin to drown.

These spell level modification stack. For example an 8th level spell would have all of these effects at once.
