Of course you can, in Avatar-verse, it was just as effective as the other elements. The only negative was that you needed a source, but then again, Hana showed Katara that you could siphon moisture out of the air or plant life.

But just in general, manipulation of water/liquids could be quite deadly.

@Phylos: yea but it has strengths and weaknesses. Its weaker during the day. Earth is constantly strong same with air.

The same could be said for Earth, look what happened to the captured Earth Nation village, they were put on a boat & were separated from their source. Even though the boat contained coal, if they weren't aware, then they would of stayed defenseless. Air has just as many weaknesses.

Haha, to be fair, most of the Earth Benders in the series only had a limited range of bending, aside from Toph, Bumi & Aang.

Water

Reasons: If its going fast enough it can cut through anything, You can Heal, Blood bending equals endgame since you can just pop like 4 vines and they are dead, Ice can be like earth but a lil weaker, also water benders can just bend all the water out of you and make you dehydrate and Die so water guys come all living things are made from 75-90% water lol come on now

my pick goes like this.. 1. Air, 2. Fire, 3. Earth, 4. Water

#31 Posted by RoyalDivinity (3172 posts) - - Show Bio

1. Water (Blood bending, Ice, Water, healing)

... Air (Gliding, evasiveness, extended to indefinite flight)

... Earth (Metal bending, rock armor, earth tactics such as popping up and out from underground, dragging opponent into ground)

... Fire (Lightning subcategory, capability of prolonged flight)

To be honest, I cannot decide on the last three due to multiple variables. Water is without a doubt, the best due to blood bending.

You can also blood bend if you're air bender, since blood contains oxygen.

With air bending you can withdraw the oxygen from someone's body, which is also and instant endgame.

Since there are oxygen molecules in water also, couldn't you manipulate that as well? I'm going with air in that case. Very versatile and you can't stop the force of wind.

Fire is not very affected on the other elements. You need to be a HIGHLY skilled firebender to beat even a waterbender.

Air contains more than just oxygen. We never saw any Airbender bend blood so we can't assume they can do so. We know that Water Benders can, however, since we've seen it. I think the order goes: 1. Water 2. Air 3. Earth 4. Fire

earth stomps

water can evaporate

fire can be put out

air can be polluted and compressed

@VercingetorixTheGreat
 I Belive ALL Earth Benders have shown to need to touch the source before able to manipulate it. Even King Bumi had physical conctact in his steel coffin to affect earth. Limited. 
 
Water is the best period. You can contrle Water without touching it.  
 
Water cover 65% of the planet. Its present in the Air, Soil, Plants, Animals, hell in Space!!!  
 
Water can Heal, none of the other Elements can. 
 
Water can be a solid (Ice) or a liquid (Water, Blood) or a Gas (Steam, Fog) 
 
Water can be Hot Steam or freezing Ice. Thats Tempature control. 
 
Water can Flash Freeze and be used as Razor Shards, Ice Prisons, Physical Objects, Weapons, ect. 
 
Water can Blood Bend which the most powerful form. 
 
Unlike Eart and Air Water is Strong without the Moon and Overpowered with the Moon. It gets a Power boost on Full Moon Nights. 
 
So Water by far the best. Im glad the New Avatar is a Water bender. She even looks like Katara a little. 
 
So  
1) Water 
2) Earth 
3) Air 
4) Fire

All True from a Logical stanpoint, but None of that has been shown in the Show. All the Water bending I listed is supported by the show. The only advantage of Air is the seemingly Spiritual connection all Air Monks have with the Spirit Realm. Wether this is due to Airbending or more likely Lifestyle never been revealed, but the Guru who is not a air bender is spiratauly connected as the Air Nomads. So I dont see any Show supoorted proof how versatile Air can be.

I pick Air for several reasons 
 
1. I like the fighting style that accompanies it, Ba Gua 
 
2. It would allow me to fly (ok technically it's gliding but still) which would allow me to cover long distances easily.  
 
3. It could boost my own natural running speed by cutting back air friction as seen by Aang who ''ran as fast as the wind'' 
 
4. And although it was shown to have a physical form in the show, in actuality, air would be invisible (except for tornadoes) like it is in the actual world,coupled with the fact that it can shift and change easily and come from different directions at once, it would be darn near impossible to evade in battle
