Biography[edit | edit source]
Even lesser Dragons remain powerful magical creatures, and terrifying foes. It's no surprise, then, that from the very first days of the Spider Cult, the Necromancers have tried to find a way to resurrect fallen Dragons as their Undead servants. Asha uses all, after all, even her own children! Unfortunately, their efforts remained unsuccessful for decades, until Belketh, the founder and Great Archon of the Cult, understood the reason for their collective failure. Dragons exist both in the material and spirit worlds, he realized, so to raise such a creature from the dead a Necromancer must first locate and dominate the Dragon's spirit form. The ghostly Dragonwraith is the result of Belketh's experiments and the pride of his armies.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Dragonwraith is one of the boss characters.
Tactic[edit | edit source]
He does not make sense before the fight to make a huge army, because (similarly to the earlier adventure pack) a limited army with particular combination appears (410 skeletons; 324 skeletal spearmen, 188 archliches; 114 vampire lords; 26 fate spinners; 19 fate weavers). The channelers try it on in the first rounds of the fight to heal the boss (since starts from the half of his original health), it is necessary to do away with them because of this (the boss does not attack directly, uses his Withering Wave" ability only). The second part of the fight is beginning if all minions was destroyed.
The recommended an army so to locate, that let the boss not be allowed to reach more valuable creatures easily in close combat. The skeletons worthy some to put, that let the range penalty be avoided. Use Necromancy always. The boss will use the "Curse of the Dragonwraith" ability much often when severely injured (below 35% health), and the "Shrivelling Breath" ability removes this ability's debuff effect ("Life in Death") from the creatures only.
