The legendary Black Dragons are the ultimate evolution of the Shadow Dragons. On their wings, the eyes of Malassa are replaced by intricate patterns of light constantly dissolving, like galaxies being swallowed by the eternal darkness of space.
The black dragon is fast, powerful, and effective. Black dragons are impervious to magic attacks from enemy heroes, and nearly impervious to magic attacks from enemies, considering its high magic defense. The black dragon is also powerful offensively, and when they fight in numbers, their Withering Breath ability can be devastating. Furthermore, their Terrifying Presence helps to stop nearby enemy troops from acting, either directly or by lowering their morale and increasing the chance of a bad morale check.
Black dragons are powerful offensive forces when besieging an enemy town, able to fly behind lines and potentially stun adjacent enemies. When being besieged, the black dragon may potentially wait, fly out from behind the walls and attack the enemy, and then fly back behind the walls, sparing them from focused attack by the enemy.
When fighting black dragons, shooters that deal Might damage are the key to damaging them safely. Should that not be enough, attack with your most powerful might units, or units that may strike and return to avoid the Terrifying Presence of the black dragons.
