Deep down in the bowels of the earth, the incadescent heat of the bubbling lava lakes serve as the breeding ground for the Lava Dragon. These fire-breathing monsters will reduce their enemy to a pile of ash, and can also leave in their wake a wall of flames that will continue to burn long after they have moved on.OffBck

The lava dragon is the alternate upgrade of the fire dragon, the seventh-level creature of the Fortress, in the Heroes of Might and Magic V expansion, Tribes of the East.

The lava dragon lacks the magma dragon's Magma Shield, meaning that it can be attacked without suffering anything other than retaliation damage, but the Liquid Flame Breath leaves fire walls on the battlefield, leading to problems for creatures that aren't Immune to Fire.
