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

Useful Info

Yellow draconians are the acid-themed members of the draconian family, and one of the more annoying ones for unprepared characters. Their acid spit attacks deal moderate damage that increases with every empty equipment slot you have, and they can temporarily corrode your equipment. Fortunately, by this point in the game most characters are prepared for dealing with acid, especially if they've already explored the Slime Pits. They can be found primarily in the Realm of Zot.

Tips & Tricks

Resist corrosion greatly reduces the damage and risk of corrosion to your gear (see the acid page for further advice on avoiding corrosion). Freezing-branded weapons help make combat against them much easier.
