• Natural Magic Mirror
"Faerie Dragons are deceptively cute, but in truth, are mischievous tricksters. Little is known about these notorious troublemakers. What is known is found more in storybooks than magical tomes. Some say they are invisible. Some say they can cast spells. Some say Magic Mirror is one of their natural defensive traits." AB manual
Special abilities and info
Faerie Dragons' main attack method is to cast offensive spells. A stack of faerie dragons can cast up to five spells per combat. The spells are randomly chosen for the stack, and the occurrence probabilities can be seen from the table on the left. The spells are cast with advanced expertise, and with spell power equal to five times the number of faerie dragons in the stack (N). If commanded to attack an enemy that is immune to the spell they are currently preparing, they will use a melee attack instead.
Faerie Dragons have a 20% chance to reflect targeted spells with Magic Mirror. Faerie Dragons ignore the Orb of Inhibition in some stances of combat i.e. they cast offensive spells despite the presence of the orb.
Faerie Dragons were added in Armageddon's Blade so there are no Faerie Dragons or Magic Forests in Restoration of Erathia. They also prominently appear in the Faerie Dragons scenario from the Dragon Slayer campaign in Armageddon's Blade.
Faerie Dragon's AI Value was increased to 30501.
Even though in the game files themselves the Faerie Dragon and other neutral dragons are considered to be level 7, the official editor shows they are level 10 (8 for Faerie Dragon). This is either due to code limitations and impossibility of creating a unit with tier higher than 7, either because the developers didn't have time, motivation or reason to add a new creature level in the game code and invest time in that, just telling us they are level 10, respectively 8. As such, even now their levels are still being debated.
