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. In addition, the Dragon Flies have the ability to cast Weakness on their opponent every time they attack." SoD manual

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.

Heroes with a specialty[edit]

  • Korbac Korbac the Beastmaster has serpent flies as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any serpent or dragon flies for each level attained after 3rd level and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

Restoration of Erathia and Armageddon's Blade[edit]

In Restoration of Erathia and Armageddon's Blade the statistics of serpent and dragon flies were a bit different. They were changed in Shadow of Death. Their attack and defense were increased and the dragon flies were given the ability to inflict weakness on their targets when they attack.

Tactics and info[edit]

The information found in this section is subjective. Remember that each and every situation in H3 is different and may call for different strategies and tactics.

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.
