Useful Info

The Serpent of Hell is a unique dragon whose elemental affinity varies based on which branch of Hell you encounter it in. When faced in the Iron City of Dis, the Serpent is capable of breathing deadly shrapnel and magic-stripping energies at you.

Tips & Tricks

  • The Dis iteration of the Serpent of Hell is marginally more durable than its other forms, but this shouldn't impact you too heavily. In practice, it's actually not much more difficult to kill than an iron dragon, albeit a particularly fast one that occasionally dispels your buffs.
