You see an undead dragon.


Even though the mighty dragons can become 100 years and older, their lives also come to an end at some point. Just like some humans, also some dragons simply cannot let go though. Some of them acquire dark secrets in their long lives. Others forge dark pacts with necromancers and demons to rise again after death.
It is said that the first Undead Dragons were created by the malicious bonelords who are known to meddle with undeath and necromancy. Created as a weapon in some ancient war, the first Undead Dragons proved to be so powerful that they could not be controlled by their masters. They broke free of the bonelords' subterranean bone fencings and wreaked havoc on their own. The escaped Undead Dragons served as role models for other dragons who longed for this seeming immortality. Even though only a few dragons walked the shadow path that ultimately led to the embrace of unlife, those who did began to transform into even more powerful and threatening beings which finally developed to Undead Dragons. More similar to the lich than the usual undead, they have kept more of their former personality and knowledge than undeads of other races are able to. Their new powers make easily up for the loss of some of their dragon skills.

Incredibly powerful dragon skeleton, capable of destructive attacks deadlier even than those from a Demon. They appeared in the Winter Update 2006. Its boss is Dracola.

Chaotic and destructive, the Undead Dragon will destroy almost everything in its path with its wave attacks, though it will, similar to all creatures of dragon kind, try to retreat at low health.

An undead dragon attacks in melee range.


Its attacks have the same range as the Dragons' Fire Wave but with other elements. Mages should use Energy Damage, Paladins should use Holy Damage, since they are strong against Physical Damage and immune against everything else. This is one of the strongest creatures in the Pits of Inferno. Mages under 335 should have Magic Shield always on when facing these. They retarget and can kill you in one combo. Knights will waste on soloing these creatures before roughly level 300, so it is not recommended to choose their task on lower levels.
