TACTICS

Before Combat Klaven dragoons use potion of heroism on themselves and administer a potion to their dragon mounts as well.

During Combat Klaven dragoons make charge attacks whenever possible, using Furious Focus and Power Attack. If they observe spellcasters, they close into melee to interfere with spellcasting with Disruptive and Spellbreaker. If confronted with invisible opponents, they use their dragonsblindsense to locate their prey and their heartseeker lances to attack the same targets without a miss chance.

Morale Klaven dragoons retreat if they or their dragons are reduced below 20 hit points. If unable to flee, they fight to the death.
