Version 0.22: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.

The dragon slaying brand causes a weapon to deal +75% bonus damage on attacks against any kind of dragon, drake, draconian, or player draconian or in Dragon Form.

Note that some dragon-like monsters are not vulnerable to dragon slaying, namely wyverns and hydras. Neither are komodo dragons, as those are a type of real-world reptile.

This brand can only be found on the artefact lance Wyrmbane.

History

Prior to 0.15, the brand could generate on any polearm.

Prior to 0.13, this brand also reduced a susceptible enemy's chance to hit you with their breath weapons by 25%, flavoured as the dragons being averse to looking at the weapon (and therefore having difficulty lining up a shot).

In Crawl versions 0.12 and 0.13, drakes were unaffected by the dragon slaying brand.
