I mean, he was a dragon-man!
Or... maybe he was just a dragon.
And the Trogdor comes in the night!”

Useful Info

Black draconians are the electricity-themed members of the draconian family. Their lightning breath attacks deal more damage than any other draconian breath attack, especially if they manage to multizap you (though they may also do heavy damage to anything else nearby). They can be found primarily in the Realm of Zot.

Tips & Tricks

  • Electricity resistance will greatly reduce the damage of their breath attacks. Freezing and dragon slaying-branded weapons help make combat against them much easier.
  • Black draconians can fly, so casters with Airstrike can kill them fairly easily. If there's a more immediate threat present, however, deal with that first.
