Aesthetic Differences/Appearance

Verdant Lao-Shan Lung
Verdant Lao-Shan Lung Icon by Chaoarren.png A ancient Rare Species of Lao-Shan Lung whose shell has further hardened and turned green from many years of nature growing on its back. When sent on a rampage the foliage grows at a striking-rate with many a monster following the scent. Can it and its unintended army be stopped?


Verdant Lao-Shan Lung are the same in body structure to the Lao species, having their differences in colouration. The shell gives the monster its name of Verdant, being coloured in a lush green all the way across its back, with vines and some moss being found on a closer look. In addition, the eyes of the Verdant are purple.

Behaviour

Verdant Lao-Shan Lung are near unstoppable on their rampage, not bothering to attack hunters but instead wreck all that stands in their path. Their need to move exceeds that of the Ashen Lao.

Introduction

Like the Ashen Lao-Shan Lung, the cutscene for it is the exact same as the regular Lao-Shan Lung, only with different camera angles.

Rage And Tired States

  • Enraged: Eyes turn a brighter purple, lime coloured spores emit from shell.
  • Tired: None

Abilities

Verdant Lao-Shan Lung don't gain anything in terms of new attacks, only gaining higher health, attack, and speed. The new mechanic it has makes the difference for this, as its Verdant Dust, a release of green mist from its shell at random times will draw in Small Monsters who will follow it. These range from Raptorial Bird Wyverns Ioprey to flying monsters like Remobra. If hunters approach the Verdant, these monsters will attack, demanding they be slain before it is clear to attack the dragon. The Verdant Dust that is an enchanting scent to monsters will leave any hunters who come into contact with it Confused. Additionally, the tackles and bites of the Verdant Lao will inflict Natureblight, along with Dragonblight from all other movements.

Ecology

Taxonomy

  • Order: Elder Dragon
  • Suborder: Mountains Dragon
  • Family: Lao-Shan Lung
  • Species: Lao-Shan Lung

Verdant Lao-Shan Lung belongs to a class of monster known as the Elder Dragon. It is a Verdant Lao-Shan Lung that was living in a jungle environment, suspected to be close to the Tower.

Habitat Range

Only spotted in the Jungle and surrounding mountain ranges, Verdant Lao-Shan Lung must remain near large supplies of minerals in order to sustain themselves. Verdant Lao-Shan Lung are sometimes seen venturing through the Fortress.

Ecological Niche

The Verdant Lao-Shan Lung feed on ores and minerals like any other Lao-Shan Lung. To other monsters, this Rare Species has a natural scent that it produces from the plants on the shell that drive them to follow its movements. The dragon takes no bother to them as none of them are capable of causing serious harm to the monsters. As they cannot effectively prey on it, the monsters hypnotically follow the monster until hunger drives them to give up, or feed upon other monsters that are on the same path.

Like the other Lao's, the Verdant are sent on the rampage from a monster of extreme power. It is believed by some that this is the doing of a White Fatalis.

Biological Adaptations

Verdant Lao-Shan Lung have many of the same adaptions as Lao-Shan Lung, however, there is a few differences between them. From hundreds of years of living in jungle climates, their shells have turned a lush green from plant-life growing on its ridges. The plant-life take in the draconic element lying within the shell, and in response, they release a signature scent that draws in monsters of both herbivorous and carnivorous diets to it. A Verdant Lao-Shan Lung's shell is extremely hard, making any that would actually try to prey on it draw nothing more but pieces of plant and drips of blood too small for it to notice.

Ecological Behaviour

Like any Lao, the Verdant is incredibly docile, and avoid getting into confrontations if they can. They have been on moments of immense stress, deliberately released their scent in excessive amounts to draw in entire herds of monsters to deal with their threat.

Trivia
