Legendary Resistance (3/Day). [3] If the dracolich fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.

Magic Resistance. [3] The dracolich has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects. 


Multiattack. [4] The dragon can use its Frightful Presence. It then makes three attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws.

Fearful Presence. [3] Each creature of the dracolich's choice that is within 120 feet of the dracolich and aware of it must succeed on a DC __ Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature's saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the dracolich's Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.

Lightning Breath (Recharge 5-6). [3] The dracolich exhales lightning in a 90-foot line that is 5 feet wide. Each creature in that line must make a DC __ Dexterity saving throw, taking 66 (12d10) lightning damage on a failed save, or half [5] as much damage on a successful one. 

Legendary Actions

The dracolich can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. The dracolich regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

Detect. [4] The dragon makes a Wisdom (Perception) check.

Tail Attack. [4] The dragon makes a tail attack.

Wing Attack (Costs 2 Actions). [4] The dragon beats its wings. Each creature within 15 feet of the dragon must succeed on a DC __ Dexterity saving throw or take 14 (2d6+7) bludgeoning damage and be knocked prone. The dragon can then fly up to half its flying speed.
