SPECIAL ABILITIES

Blaster (Su)

As a standard action, a yellow dragon can send out a pulse of electricity through its whiskers at a single target within 30 ft. The yellow dragon must make a ranged touch attack (+14), if it hits, the target takes 3d6 points of lightning damage and must make a Fortitude save (DC 19) or be inflicted with Immobilize status for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 21).

Lightning Armor (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, a yellow dragon grants herself a shocking barrier as a standard action. All allies can gain the effect of Shock Spikes. The allies must be within 30 feet of yellow dragon when it uses this ability to receive these bonuses for 6 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 23).

Mist Vision (Ex)

A yellow dragon can see through fog, clouds, and similar obscuring effects with perfect clarity.
