  • Drone. While flying, the dragonfly emits a loud droning sound that can be heard out to a range of 120 feet.
  • Dangerous Reactions. When the dragonfly takes a reaction, each creature mounted on it must succeed on a DC 10 Strength saving throw or fall off.
  • Immutable Form. The dragonfly is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.


  • Piercing Leg. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d8 + 3) piercing damage.
  • Wing Gust. Each creature in a 15-foot cone must succeed on a DC 13 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone or pushed 10 feet back (dragonfly’s choice).


  • Hypnotizing Drone (1/Day). The dragonfly emits a deep, hypnotizing humming sound with its wings. Each creature within 30 feet of the dragonfly that can hear it must make a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save, the creature becomes charmed until the end of the dragonfly’s next turn. While charmed, the creature is incapacitated and has a speed of 0.
  • Rune-Infused Wings. The dragonfly activates a series of runes engraved on it to cause one of the following effects which lasts until the start of its next turn:
    • The dragonfly creates a thin force barrier around it. The first time it or a creature it is carrying takes damage, that damage is reduced by 7 (1d10 + 2).
    • The dragonfly’s Piercing Leg deals an additional 4 (1d8) lightning damage on a hit and the target can’t take reactions until the start of its next turn.


  • Diving Maneuver. The dragonfly imposes disadvantage on the attack roll of one creature it can see that targets it or a creature mounted on it, or it grants itself and a creature mounted on it advantage on a Dexterity saving throw. It then moves up to half its flying speed.
  • Uncanny Dodge. The dragonfly halves the damage it or a creature mounted on it takes from an attack, provided it can see the attacker.


Built to resemble a dragonfly, this mechanical mount is a large Construct powered by magical runes and capable of flying at full speed while carrying a single Medium or smaller creature.

The runewrought dragonfly is encoded to follow a single creature and can understand up to ten simple verbal commands which it follows to the best of its ability. A creature proficient in tinker’s tools can spend 1 hour to change any of these command words. If it doesn’t receive any commands, it takes the Disengage or Dodge action.
