“Trogdor was a man!
I mean, he was a dragon-man!
Or... maybe he was just a dragon.

Useful Info

Purple draconians are the magic-themed members of the draconian family. They have the same irresistible breath attacks as quicksilver dragons, dealing moderate damage (3d20) and greatly reducing the duration of any magical buffs you may have in place. Fortunately, they have only normal speed, and thus can't hit you with this nearly as often. While they lack any sort of elemental resistance, they have much higher magic resistance than any other draconians. They can be found primarily in the Realm of Zot.

Tips & Tricks

  • Their energy breath cannot be resisted, only dodged or blocked with a shield, which makes them fairly dangerous. You probably won't want to bother with any buffs until you've cleared them out. Freezing-branded weapons help make combat against them much easier.
