A draconian master of the warp, who can translocate both itself and anyone else to any place, either on this world or outside of it.

“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 shifters are lightly armed warpers. Although not terribly dangerous on their own, they can blink their allies into melee range with you, and can disable your own ability to blink, teleport, or cast the spell Phase Shift. They can be found accompanying other draconians in the Realm of Zot, in The Depths as well as occasionally appearing in the Abyss.

Tips & Tricks

  • Like all draconians, they cannot see invisible, and are much less likely to use magic against you when they cannot see you.
  • Their ability to lock down your most reliable escape abilities and surround you with powerful enemies makes them one of the deadliest members of a draconian band. Silencing them will prevent them from using their spells, rendering them much less effective.

History

Prior to 0.13, draconian shifters knew Banishment in place of Dimension Anchor and Blink Allies Encircling.
