Brooding Boltstampers possess the built of a Rumblehorn, while their head, as well as wings, are a mix between their parental species. Similar to the Skrill, they have sharp, metallic spines running down their backs to their tails.
Brooding Boltstampers have a really thick skin, even more so than their parents' species, which protects them from strong attacks.
Brooding Boltstampers inherit the tracking skills of their Rumblehorn lineage, enabling them to track fleeing enemies for miles.
The Brooding Boltstamper inherits the inability to smell dragonberry from its Rumblehorn lineage. If a target is covered in dragonberry juice, a Brooding Boltstamper will be unable to smell it.
Behavior and Personality
Thanks to their more even-keeled Rumblehorn stock, Wild Boltstampers show just how good Skrills could be as training partners if they could only temper their anger. They possess all of their electrical ancestors cleverness, resilience, and power — but none of the bloodlust!
The Brooding Boltstamper's behavior falls somewhere in between that of each parent, though behaviorally they tend to favor that of the Rumblehorn more than the Skrill. Though they are more level-headed, they can be quick to anger and also charge into battle fearlessly.
The Brooding Boltstamper was first introduced in this game, along with many other dragon hybrids. The only way a player can obtain a Brooding Boltstamper is by breeding a Rumblehorn and a Skrill in the Breedery.
A brand of newly released merchandise, Legends Evolved lists this dragon as Rumbling Gutbuster instead of Brooding Boltstomper.
