Red Dragon

The Dragon is one of the eight character classes in Might and Magic VIII: Day of the Destroyer. Unlike the other classes, the player can't start the game as a dragon, but dragons can join the party later.

"The Dragon is the king of beasts. Dragons have the capacity to breathe fire, fight in melee with their huge claws and fangs, breathe a devastating breath weapon, fly, and repel even the sharpest weapons with their scales. Though Dragons don't use armor or weapons, if one joins your party you won't miss the lack of man-made combat materials!"

Dragons start with 40 hit points and 10 spell points, and gain 4 hit points and 2 spell points per level. They are the only class with no resistance or immunities.

Great Wyrm Edit

"Because of the enmity between Dragons and much of the rest of the weapon-wielding world, very few dragons live long enough to become Great Wyrms. Those that do, however, are the largest and wisest of their kind. Legends tell of entire armies that have fallen before the might of a single Great Wyrm."
A Dragon can be promoted to a Great Wyrm. Great Wyrms can learn grandmaster Dragon, perception, learning, and identify item instead of master.

Great Wyrms gain 7 hit points and 3 spell points per level.
