| A long and sinuous dragon, seemingly more neck and tail than anything else. Its skin shines like molten mercury, magical energies arc from its pointed snout, and it moves with terrifying swiftness.
“On the other hand, Confucius is made to say to his disciples, ‘I know how birds can fly, how fishes can swim, and how animals can run. But the runner may be snared, the swimmer may be hooked, and the flyer may be shot by the arrow. But there is the dragon. I cannot tell how he mounts on the wind through the clouds, and rises to heaven. Today I have seen Lao-tsze, and can only compare him to the dragon.’”
Quicksilver dragons are rare and dangerous dragons that move 50% faster than average and breathe irresistible status-dispelling energy bolts. They can be found in Vaults:5, Dis:7, a specific Snake:4 layout, and in or just outside the Realm of Zot. If you see one elsewhere, it's likely a shapeshifter.
Killing them may drop quicksilver dragon scales, a dragon armour with inherent magic resistance.

Tips & Tricks
- Be mindful if you have any active enchantments that you're relying on: unexpectedly losing Haste or the teleportation status in the middle of a battle can be devastating or even fatal. Keep note of buffs that can't be dispelled, such as berserk.
- As their damage output is irresistible and considerable, the best defense is a good offense. Quicksilver dragons in Snake:4 are quite scary, but you can't even run away, as they move faster than a regular player.
- While their quicksilver bolts can't be absorbed, they can be avoided or blocked; a shield, good EV, and/or RMSl can help keep you safe.
