The dragonspawn is one of the monsters that roams the Desktop Dungeons. It is unlocked by clearing the game as a Monk, and has both decent health and a magical attack. The boss version of the dragonspawn is The Matron of Flame.
- Health: 125%
- Damage: 100%
- Magical attack
For most characters, dragonspawn can be handled in much the same way as zombies, although they have less health and can be poisoned. Berserkers, in particular, will have very little trouble against dragonspawn. The magical nature of their attack means that physical resistance will have no effect, but since they do normal amounts of damage, this isn't a big deal.
The Matron of Flame has the third-highest health out of all the bosses at 477, meaning that you need to be prepared to deal a lot of damage to take her down. As with regular dragonspawn, berserkers have the best odds of defeating the Matron. The Matron of Flame has no other special traits, so most of the usual tactics of softening up bosses, like APHEELSIK, BURNDAYRAZ, and such, will work on the Matron without many problems.
