“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.’”
Steam dragons are the weakest of the dragons and are usually the first kind encountered. They have low HP and no useful resistances, but their steam breath attack should not be underestimated. They uncommonly appear throughout the middle floors of the Dungeon.
Tips & Tricks
- Having rF+ also grants you rSteam.
- Killing a steam dragon may create steam dragon scales, an occasionally desirable armour choice for casters and stealth-specialists.
- Its steam breath lingers for several turns; don't stand around in it if you don't have resistance. If you need to escape a fight, the steam blocks line of sight like a scroll of fog, making it easier to leave enemies guessing where you went.
