A cunning draconian who has mastered the inner secrets of the element of fire. Its scales are sooty from years of magical pyrotechnics.

“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 scorchers are powerful fire elementalists who tend to blast you and everything around you with overwhelming Fire Magic. Although less capable of dealing massive damage than draconian annihilators, they are still a major threat, as their hellfire attacks can pierce any character's defenses. They are commonly found in the Realm of Zot, and occasionally appear in the Abyss as well.

Tips & Tricks

Being adjacent to a scorcher will usually prevent them from casting fireball or hellfire, due to a reluctancy to blow themselves up.

History

Draconian scorchers, as with the other monster draconians, were added in 0.1.

Prior to 0.16, they could cast Sticky Flame Range instead of Bolt of Magma.
