A draconian deriving its thunderous powers and draconic allies from the worship of Qazlal.

“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 stormcallers are priests of Qazlal that employ the aid of smaller dragons, such as death drakes, swamp drakes, komodo dragons, and fire drakes, as well as Qazlal's upheaval ability and smiting.

Tips & Tricks

  • Death drakes should always be your biggest concern among the summons. However, you'll probably want to focus most of your attention on the stormcaller, as killing it will stop the influx of reinforcements.
    • Smite-targeted attacks such as Airstrike or Freezing Cloud are ideal for nailing stormcallers that are hanging out in the middle of a pack of other draconians. Bolt spells can also punch through anything standing between you and the caller.
  • Rot resistance makes miasma harmless, though you'll have to be undead, gargoyle, vine stalker or a lucky demonspawn to have it naturally. Zin's Vitalisation can also help protect you.

History

In 0.20, draconian zealots and draconian callers were merged into draconian stormcallers, who retain the smiting of draconian zealots, summon drakes ability of draconian callers, and have a new divine ability identical to Qazlal's 2* Upheaval ability. Draconian callers had summon dragon instead of upheaval and smiting.
