For any CC people out there that this might interest.
The Shadow of a flying Dragon.
It can be attacked with ranged spells, bows and crossbows and if so, the attack is aimed up in the sky at a point of origin.
Scripts could allow for the “Dragon to use ranged attacks/spells as well” from the point of origin.
When enough damage is done the dragon could fly away.
It Could really add some spice to areas, near where a dragon is known to lair. Imagine traveling a road and suddenly lightning bolt strikes from a stalking Blue above. Targeting the shadow with the proper ranged weapon allows you to shoot at it and chase it off.
It might behave more like a visual effect, but with a selectable piece one could click on to attack, and with the "target" point in the sky to make it feel right.
