The dragon slaying brand causes a weapon to deal +75% bonus damage on attacks against any kind of dragon, draconian, or player in Dragon Form. On top of that, it gives you an additional 25% chance to dodge any dragon's breath attack. 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.

Note that other dragon-like monsters are not vulnerable to dragon slaying.

This brand can only be found on polearms.

Tips & Tricks

  • This brand works best on a high-damage weapon, since the damage is multiplicative.
  • It can be useful in Zot to take down packs of draconians, although a weapon of freezing is preferable. Freezing will do less damage, but will slow all draconians other than white ones, an effect which is generally more useful.
