They used to be stronger before Winter Update 2008, but they are still lethal. Since Summer Update 2009 they drop loot, which makes them more profitable. Since 2010 autumn patch they drop normal loot from openable corpse, but it is still possible to fish the corpses to get Giant Shimmering Pearls and other gems.
Massive Water Elementals are as fast as a Level 100 character. A massive water elemental never retreats.
All vocations: Remember to bring your Helmet of the Deep when hunting these! It blocks 100% of their strongest attack, the water bomb. The heavy weight of the helmet will be easily compensated as it will save you from their most deadly combos.
Mages should use Energy-Based Attacks and run.
Paladins should run away from them in most cases, but if you have to fight use a good bow and flash arrows.
Knights should run away from them in most cases, but if you have to fight use Energy-Enchanted Weapons and spells to kill them fast.
