The draconian annihilator can, in addition to its deadly breath, use powerful conjurations to destroy anyone who dares to stand in its way.

“Trogdor was a man!
I mean, he was a dragon-man!
Or... maybe he was just a dragon.
...
And the Trogdor comes in the night!”
-The Brothers Chaps, “Trogdor”. 2003.

Useful Info

Draconian annihilators are comparable to the deep elf annihilators found in the Elven Halls, but tougher and with resistances that complicate the fight. Like their elven colleagues, they like to cast high-level Conjurations. They can be found in the Realm of Zot and, rarely, in the Abyss.

Tips & Tricks

For squishy characters, turning a corner and finding yourself face-to-face with an annihilator is an emergency, and you should waste no time putting some distance between the two of you via Blink or other means to escape the range of their most brutal spells. Melee-focused characters will want to do the opposite, engaging them and luring them into physically attacking you as quickly as possible. If you encounter draconian annihilators in groups, killing them should be a high priority.
