Thus a ruler gets very wet (7)

I believe the answer is:

soaking

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'very wet' is the definition.
'soaking' can be an answer for 'wet' (I've seen this before). I'm not certain of the 'very' bit.

'thus a ruler' is the wordplay.
'thus' becomes 'so' (synonyms).
'ruler' becomes 'king' (king is a kind of ruler).
'so'+'a'+'king'='SOAKING'

'gets' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for soaking that I've seen before include "Wet" , "Drenched" .)
