While most Dragons can only breath fire, Fell Dragons can also breath a black, Strifeshadow-derived mist that rapidly triggers decay and rot in anything it touches. This attack is extremely effective at destroying targets at long range, but also at breaking fortified positions open. Unfortunately, this is very taxing on the Dragon, and can only be done occasionally. Fortunately, Fell Dragons can also engage targets by biting them with their huge maw, or by breathing fire.
Although the older Fell Dragons bring new meaning to the word "cautious", and are never seen on the front lines of a battlefield, Shade Tyrants can summon a willing Dragon from Beyond, and animate them into Fell Dragons. These Dragons are deployed sparingly, as the cost of summoning them is great for a body must be created; Dragon bone is a magical composite of Ikon, Arikon and normal bone. Nonetheless, the cost is well worth it, for even one Fell Dragon can easily turn the tide of battle, be it in the skies, or on the ground.
