The dragon slaying brand causes a weapon to deal +75% bonus damage on attacks against any kind of dragon, drake, draconian, or player in Dragon Form. Wielding a dragon slaying weapon will give your character the desire to slay dragons, or, if you are a draconian, make your character feel suicidal; either way, this identifies it.
This brand can only be found on the artefact lance Wyrmbane.
Tips & Tricks
- Wyrmbane can be very useful in Zot to take down packs of draconians, although a weapon of freezing may be preferable. Freezing will do less damage, but will slow all draconians other than white ones, an effect which is very useful.
Prior to 0.13, this brand also reduced a susceptible enemy's chance to hit you with their breath weapons by 25%, flavoured as the dragons being averse to looking at the weapon (and therefore having difficulty lining up a shot).
