Aura of the Dragon Queen. Tiamat can use a bonus action to activate her elemental aura and it remains in effect until she uses another bonus action to contain it. The aura extends out in a 60-foot radius from her. Each creature that starts or ends its turn in the aura takes 28 (8d6) acid, 28 (8d6) cold, 28 (8d6) fire, 28 (8d6) poison, or 28 (8d6) lightning damage, Tamat’s choice.
Chromatic Wrath (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). If Tiamat is reduced to 0 hit points, her current hit point total instead rests to 7,500 hit points, she recharges her Breath Weapons, and she regains any expended uses of Legendary Resistance. Award a party an additional 1,220,000 (2,440,000) XP total) for defeating Tiamat after her Chromatic Wrath activates.
Titanic. Tiamat’s space is 100 feet by 100 feet and she has advantage on saving throws against being pushed or knocked prone. Additionally, when Tiamat hits a creature Colossal or smaller then her with a melee attack each creature within 5 feet of the initial target must make a DC 34 Dexterity saving throw or suffer the same attack.
Chromatic Breath. When a creature, object, or area takes damage from one of Tiamat’s breath weapons it suffers additional effects based on the damage type: frost bitten (cold), dissolves, (acid), poisoned (poison), charged (lightning), or ignited (fire). The effects of which last for 6 (1d12) rounds. Affected targets take 28 (8d6) damage of the attack’s type at the start of their turn and a creature that ends their turn adjacent to or in an affected area also takes 28 (8d6) damage of the attack’s type.
Discorporation. When Tiamat drops to 0 hit points, her body is destroyed but its essence travels back to its domain, and is unable to take physical form for a time. Additionally, Tiamat discorporates if all of her heads are destroyed.
Divine Might. Tiamat attacks and effects ignore the resistances and immunities of creatures CR 25 and below. A Tiamat attacks and effects targeting creatures of CR 26-35 ignore resistances and treat immunities as resistance (condition immunities provide advantage in lieu of immunity.)
Dominating Presence. When targeting a creature of CR 35 or below Tiamat’s charms ignore resistance and creatures with immunity have advantage on their saving throw instead. Tiamat can use a bonus or legendary action to exert precise control of creatures she has charmed.
Innate Spellcasting. Tiamat’s spell casting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 40, +32 to hit with attack spells). Each head can innately cast, requiring no components:
1/day each: dominant monster, feeblemind, mass suggestion.
The white head can cast all Transmutation spells of 5th level and lower once per day and the following spells:
Legendary Resistance (10/Day). If Tiamat fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.
Legendary Magic Immunity. Unless Tiamat wishes to be affected, it is immune to spells of 8th level or lower, and she is resistant to and has advantage on all other spells and magical effects.
Magic Weapons. Tiamat weapon attacks are treated as +5 magical weapons.
Multiple Heads. Each of Tiamat’s heads can be targeted separately. Each head has 450 hit points and damage done to a head does not reduce Tiamat’s hit point total. If a head is reduced to 0 hit points, that head can no longer take actions or reactions until it has at least 1 hit point. If a head is reduced to -200 hit points it is destroyed and cannot function until it has been restored to 450 hit points. In addition, if she suffers an effect that would render her unconscious, she instead loses the use of one head for the duration of the effect instead. Tiamat choses the head.
Multiple Limbs. Tiamat claws, wings, and tail can be targeted separately. Each claw or wing has 450 hit points and her tail has 600 hit points. Damage done to a limb does not reduce Tiamat’s hit point total. If a limb is reduced to 0 hit points, that limb can no longer take actions or reactions until it has at least 1 hit point. If a limb or tail is reduced to -200 hit points it is destroyed and cannot function until it has been restored to full hit points. Additionally, Tiamat cannot fly if a wing is at or below 0 hit points and her speed is reduced by 40 feet for each claw that is at or below 0 hit points.
