Serpent and Dragon Flies are level 3 creatures of Fortress town. They are recruited from the Serpent Fly Hive. These giant, flying insects attack by striking with their tail stingers. Their attacks dispel any beneficial spells affecting their target.

Both flies apply their dispelling ability every time they attack. No creatures are immune to it and it can not be resisted in any way.

Original statistics[edit]

In Restoration of Erathia and Armageddon's Blade the statistics of serpent and dragon flies were a bit different. They were changed to Shadow of Death, where their attack and defense were increased. Also, dragon flies' ability to cast weakness on the opponent every time they attack were added.

Discussion[edit]

As a third-level creatures both serpent and dragon flies are easy to acquire, and with great the great speed of 9 or 13 they make excellent creatures for scouts. Hero with only serpent or dragon flies in the army will move rapidly to scout areas, and with high spell points and power skill can even get through wandering creatures.
