Introduction


Green Dragons were introduced into Runescape with the release of Runescape II. The "metal" Dragons (Bronze, Iron and Steel) were
introduced into the game along with the Slayer Update (they are Slayer Monsters). Although the metal Dragons are not very good for raising your Slayer, they offer great rewards for those brave enough to slay them. Dragons are extremely popular throughout the world of Members and their levels range hugely allowing players of almost any level to have a chance at kill them. Green, Blue, Red and Black Dragons all drop Dragonbones and Dragonhide (of their respective colour), the bones can be buried to give
a lot of Prayer experience and the hides can be tanned and then crafted into DragonHide Armour. Baby Dragons only drop Baby Dragon Bones, these can also be used to effectively train Prayer.

Dragon Hides

Dragonhides can be obtained by killing dragons, and are to be used in combat, preferably when ranging. They offer excellent protection for rangers, and have a great magic resistance, although they don't offer much melee protection. There are 4 kinds of dragonhides:

* Green Dragonhide (can be obtained by killing green dragons.)
* Blue Dragonhide (can be obtained by killing blue dragons.)
* Red Dragonhide (can be obtained by killing red dragons.)
* Black Dragonhide (can be obtained by killing black dragons or king black dragons.)

After you have managed to get the dragonhides, you must see the tanner. He can either be found in Al Kharid, in the Crafter’s Guild, Ranged Guild and Canifis. You should also bring along a couple of gp’s, a needle and thread, which can be bought from the crafting stores in Al Kharid and Rimmington. Then, if you have the required Crafting level, you can make them into Dragonhide Bodies, Chaps and Vambraces.

Combat Styles


Melee

Melee is the preferred choice when fighting Green, Blue, Red and Black Dragons because the damage dealt can be very high.

Dragon Battle Axe: Definitely not a good choice to use against Dragons. If you are using a Battle Axe, the best fighting style would be 'crush'. This isn't very effective against dragons, though. It does have a high Slash stat, but even then, it is too slow to really be of any use against dragons; you should try to use your Battle Axe for armoured foes instead. It is quite accurate, and you can hit very high with this weapon.
Special attack: The Battle Axe's special attack will temporary raise your strength, but lower your attack and defence. If you use this special attack, always be sure to have a restore stat potion with you to make up for the loss of attack and defence points! It only has to be used once; your stats will slowly recover, and each time you use the special attack your stats will go back to their maximum.

Dragon Longsword: With its high Stab and Slash stats, it's very accurate, and especially powerful against certain enemies, such as dragons. The damage of the sword usually lies quite a lot lower than that of a Dragon Battle Axe, but it makes up with this because of the fact it's much faster than the axe.
Special attack: This special attack is actually very useful. If you use it, your character will strike the enemy with increased power and accuracy. This attack can be used 4 times before your special attack bar is completely empty, so if you're lucky and don't miss too often using it you can deal a lot of damage in a short time.

Dragon Dagger: Probably the most important thing about the Dragon dagger is the fact that it is poisonable. Depending on what poison you use your dagger can deal up to 6 damage every 15 seconds just through poison! Most of you may think it is very weak, which is true, but it's much faster than both the Dragon axe and Longsword, and has ok Stab and Slash stats, which makes it quite effective versus many monsters.
Another strategy with this weapon is to use it once to strike the enemy, then switch back to another weapon. Make sure that you actually hit the dragon though, meaning you have to take at least 1 hp off for the poison to take effect.
Special attack: Comparable to the Dragon Longsword's attack - you will strike twice in a row if you use it, with increased accuracy and power. Although it's still not that strong, you will deal a lot of damage if you're lucky and hit high twice. The attack can be very powerful.

Dragon Mace: Perhaps the most interesting addition to this weapon is its prayer bonus you receive. Using this weapon means you can conserve prayer points a while longer, just like Monk Robes and Holy Symbols. Its speed is comparable to that of a Longsword, but the damage you can deal with this weapon lies lower. It can be used against dragons, but just like with the Dragon Battle Axe, it has a high crush stat, so I'd recommend using it against armoured foes instead.
Special attack: Again, comparable to the Dragon Longsword's special attack. You can hit extremely high numbers with this special attack if used correctly! That means using a super strength potion, ultimate strength prayer and any other ways you might find to temporary raise your strength.
Even when you don't have a high strength level and don't use a Super Strength Potion, it's still a very useful move, perhaps making the Dragon mace the best weapon against dragons.

Ranged

Ranged is a very useful style of combat when facing up against Dragons. The main reason being, you are firing from a distance away and the Dragon cannot attack you, therefore, you don't lose any hitpoints, saving time and money collecting food. Ranged attacks are most useful against Blue and Red Dragons because you can hide in areas near their respawn places. Ranged attacks against Green Dragons are also effective, however, Green Dragons are only found in the Wilderness and therefore, taking arrows can be risky.
Crystal Bow: Very effective against killing all types of Dragons.
Magic Bow: Recommended bow. Fairly cheap but has a very high Ranged Bonus. Best used in conjunction with Steel+ arrows when fighting Dragons.
*Ranged is not recommended against Bronze, Iron or Steel Dragons as they use a Ranged fireball attack.

Magic

Magic is very effective against Dragons due to their low magic defence. The recommended spells are; Fire Bolt, Fire Blast and Slayer Dart. Magic is also effective for the same reasons as ranged; you don't take any damage.


Preparing for combat


Right, everyone knows it takes a lot of guts to take a dragon down, but what exactly do you need, apart from that? An unprepared warrior is no match for a dragon, therefore you should stock up on food, armour and other goodies before going there.

Food

Ah yes, this is without doubt the one thing that will give you the true advantage over the dragon. The ability to heal yourself by eating food at an incredibly fast rate. Now, not just any food will do. I will agree with you when you tell me Apple pies are delicious, but there is better food out there, although it doesn't taste nearly as good.

* Lobsters: probably the most-used food. Get them from Karamja, Catherby or the Fishing guild. Lobsters heal 12Hp so you won't last very long with these. However, they are easy to fish.
* Swordfish: the best food available on F2P, and definitely the kind you will need to defeat Elvarg. However, it is hard to fish and you burn them a lot until higher cooking levels. They heal 14hp.
* Anchovy/Pineapple pizzas: takes a long time to prepare, but the worst thing is that you have to eat them in 3 pieces, thus you will have to skip 3 combat rounds in total. Not recommended.
* Gnome food: not used a lot and quite hard to prepare, there are several Gnome recipes which heal much hp, ranging from 7-15.
* Sharks: That's right, in this game your character can eat over 100 sharks in 1 minute. Sharks are hard to catch, and require a high fishing and cooking level, but they heal 20HP each. These huge fish are often used when fighting the stronger dragons, such as the Black and King Black Dragon.
* Ughthanki kebabs: They require some time to prepare, but it's worth it: they heal 19Hp each. You have to kill Ughtanki Camels in the desert south of Al Kharid, cook their meat, and get the other various ingredients to ultimately get a kebab.
* Monkfish: These can be fished at the completion of the Swan Song Quest. They heal 16HP each.
* Tuna & Sweetcorn potatoes: These heal 21Hp each.

Anti Fire Breath Potions


These potions are commonly used when fighting Bronze, Iron and Steel Dragons. You will have to make these potions in order to prevent the Dragon’s breath from hurting you. If you have Protect from Melee enabled, are wielding a Dragonfire shield and have drunk a dose of this potion, you can kill the dragon without any problems, and without losing a single hitpoint yourself.
How to make these potions, you may be wondering?

First of all, they are P2P only. This means that Freeplayers won’t get hold of them in any way, thus they will have accept the additional damage they may receive from the dragon’s breath.
How does one make such a potion, you may be wondering?
First, you must obtain the herb Lantadyme.
Put the herb in a water-filled potion, and put a ground Blue Dragon Scale in it. These can be acquired from the Blue Dragons’ nest, located in the Members Dungeon nearby Taverly.

For more information on making Anti-Fire Breath Potions visit the Zybez Herblore Guide.

Dragon Fire Shield


Of course, you can't do a thing without this shield.
It is part of the Dragon Slayer quest, in which you will receive it from the Duke of Lumbridge. Don't worry - even if you have lost it, you can get an unlimited amount of shields back from the Duke! A good trick to stock up on them is to drop the shield, and talk to him again. Drop the other shield, and talk to him again. Repeat until you get the desired amount.

Prayer

Ah yes, this isn't required to kill the Dragons, but it sure helps you out a lot. Let's just say you can kill 5 dragons on average without prayer, and over 20 with prayer. However, your prayer will drain soon if you keep using Protect from Melee.
The simple, yet expensive solution to this: Restore Prayer potions. I'm sure you all know how to get those: get Rannarr Weed, mix it in a vial with snape grass and presto! You should have about 50 Prayer Potions before you start your dragon-killing spree.

Inventory

Green Dragons;


Blue Dragons and upwards;


Armour & Weapons
Both armour and weapons are essential when attempting to slay dragons. Depending on what Dragon you are fighting and what type of combat style you are using will depend on what you need to bring.
When fighting Green Dragons I recommend this setup;

Weapon: Dragon Scimitar, Longsword or Whip is the recommended as they are the fastest.
Armour: Dragon Hide Body is useful because there are always a lot of mages that Pk at the Dragons. Amulet of Glory; Good bonus and quick teleport to Edgeville to Bank. Rune Legs; Defence. Ring of Duelling; Can teleport to Duel Arena to recharge Prayer and/or Hitpoints. This can be replaced by a Ring of Life.
Other: The gloves, cape and boots aren't necessary but they give some bonuses.

When fighting Blue Dragons and upwards hand-to-hand I recommend this setup;

Weapon: Dragon Scimitar, Longsword or Whip is the recommended as they are the fastest.
Armour: Rune items; defence bonuses. Warrior Helmet; Adds attack bonuses. Rune Helmet or Berzerker can be used as well.
Other: The gloves, cape and boots aren't necessary but they give some bonuses. The Ring of Wealth adds a chance of getting a rare drop.

When fighting Blue Dragons and upwards with a Halberd I recommend this setup;

Weapon: Halberd for long distance attacks
Armour: rune items; defence bonus. Warrior Helmet; Adds attack bonuses. Rune Helmet or Berzerker can be used as well.
Other: The gloves, cape and boots aren't necessary but they give some bonuses. The Ring of Wealth adds a chance of getting a rare drop. Climbing boots add strength bonus.

Money Making


Green Dragons
There are several locations in the Wilderness where Green Dragons are found. The most easily accessible are the three Green Dragons that lie North-West of Edgeville. Here there are three Green Dragons.

For these Dragons I recommend that you melee them. When you go to fight them bring the item's listed above in the "Inventory Set-up" section of this guide. I also recommend you bring a form of teleportation because there can be Pk'ers lurking there.

Killing them is quite simple. All you have to really do it drink your potions and then kill them. I would recommend that you only pick up their Bones and Hides and leave the other items dropped unless they are worth more than 2,000gp. When you have a full inventory; teleport to Edgeville by using your Amulet of Glory. Bank and repeat. If you kill the Dragon's effectively you can make upwards of 100,000 GP an hour. The hides can be sold for around 1,500 and the Bones for about 2,500ea.

Blue Dragons
Blue Dragons are found in various locations around the map. To kill them you can use any of the Melee, Range or Mage combat styles. A very effective weapon to use is a Halberd, which allows you to Melee attack Dragons from a distance without getting hurt. The best locations for killing Blue Dragons is the Hero's Guild and Mountain south of Yanille (requires completion of Watchtower Quest).

If you are planning to Range them I recommend you have 70+ Ranged and use Steel+ Arrows. If you are a Mage then Fire Bolts and/or Blasts are very effective. To kill them efficiently you need to have about 80+ Combat if you are going to Melee them. And 70+ Combat if you plan to Halberd them.

Killing Blue Dragons can make you about 140,000 GP and hour is you are very efficient. Their hides sell for around 2,000gp each and their Bones for around 2,500gp each

Blue Dragons are more efficient for Money Making than Greens if you are a lower level because they are not located in the Wilderness and you can use the three different Attack Styles.

2.0 – Teaming the KBD
2.1 – Recommended Equipment
2.2 – Recommended Inventory
2.3 – Killing the KBD

1.0 – Solo’ing the KBD


Before starting this I suggest you have 100+ combat to solo the KBD. Sometimes you’re lucky and hit a lot, and other times it takes 2 or 3 trips to kill it.

1.1 – Recommended Equipment



Helm: The helm can be substituted for a Mystic Hat or any other hat which gives Magic defence bonus. Since you are going into the wilderness you may only want to use Mystic to not risk losing valuable armour.

Cape: The cape can substituted for an Obsidian Cape or any other cape which you choose; The bigger bonus the better.

Amulet: The amulet can be substituted for any amulet which you feel will give you good attack/defence bonuses, yet let me remind you again; Since you are going into the wilderness you may not want to risk valuable armour.

Robe Top: The robe top can be substituted for a Mystic Top, Dragonhide body or any top which you feel gives good magic defence bonuses.

Weapon: The weapon can be substituted for a Whip, Dragon 2h or any other Melee weapon which you feel like using. I am using a Scimitar because I can train Strength with it, yet a whip works effectively too.

Shield: An anti-dragon breath shield is a MUST! Without this you get hit for ~40’s, and will die easily.

Robe Bottom: The robe bottom can be substituted for a Mystic Bottom, Dragonhide Legs or any other bottom which you feel gives good Magic defence bonuses.

Gloves: The gloves can be substituted for Barrows Gloves or any gloves which you feel gives good magic defence bonuses and/or Melee attack bonuses. I am using Red Dragonhide because I can’t use black yet. tongue.gif

Boots: The boots can be substituted for Rune Boots or any boots which you feel gives good magic defence bonuses. Those boots are wizard boots.

Ring: The ring can be substituted for a ring of life or ring of recoil, for their different special effects.

Note: I am wearing Ahrims because I can use spells on the KBD to weaken him, yet it also provides great Magic defence.

1.2 – Recommended Inventory



There is nothing you can really change here, except for the amount of Prayer and Anti-fire Potions.
The prayer potions are there for obvious reasons; to keep your prayer points above 0 and keep your prayers active.
The Super Antipoisons are in case you get poisoned because of the poisonous spiders or the KBD mage attacks. 1 Dose of a Super Antipoison lasts quite a long time so you don’t really need to worry about more than 2 Potions MAX.
The Super Attack and Strength potions are so you hit higher on it and can kill it quicker, rather than teleporting out before you kill it.
I don’t know if Antifire potions actually affect the amount of damage, I don’t think so, except it’s always good to have them just in case. You can bring them or not, it’s really up to you.
The runes are for teleporting. You can bring a teleport tablet, ectophial or any other teleport you want, it doesn’t matter too much.
You could bring a weapon such as a mace, dragon dagger(s), dragon halberd or any other weapon which has a good strong special you could use at the start.

1.3 – Killing the KBD

ALWAYS BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR PKERS! Once you pass level 20 wilderness you won’t be able to teleport out quickly, so make sure you’re aware and ready to run and teleport.

Once you reach the entrance to the lair, stand outside the gate and pot up. Take one dose of the: Super Attack, Super Strength, Super Antipoison and Antifire. After you’ve finished potting up, chuck on Protect from Melee, open the door and climb down the ladder. Quickly go and pull the lever, and run and attack the KBD. Use your weapons special (if you have one) and then switch to your normal weapon and hit away. You may get hit a bit, that’s just natural, but never freak out. Stay calm and you can react faster than if you’re freaking out and don’t know what to do. Always use Protect from Melee when in there, as he hits a LOT harder with Melee than Magic. Heal when your health gets low and always watch your prayer. There is no real strategy on where to stand, just hit him. Don’t run away unless you have no prayer and about to die. Sometimes it takes me two trips, but most of the time it only takes me one trip and I was level 104 when I wrote this.

You will most probably only be able to make one trip (kill him once) and then you will have to teleport out. That is alright, just go back and kill it again, easy enough. Pick up the drops (it drops a Black Dragonhide, Dragon Bone 100% of the time) and teleport out.

2.0 – Teaming the KBD


Here it gets a little bit easier. The more players you have on your team, the lower combat level you need to kill it. With 2-4 people I suggest around 90 combat, 5+ people you could be anywhere from 80 combat and above, or lower.

2.1 – Recommended Equipment



There is no change between the equipment I am wearing there and the equipment worn while solo’ing the KBD. One major thing you could change is that you don’t have to bring as expensive items because you won’t take as much damage. Your best dragonhide or mystic armour is great as it won’t matter if you die and you can still kill it relatively easy.

2.2 – Recommended Inventory



Again, the inventory doesn’t have to change whether you’re teaming or solo’ing him. The main changes you could have would be more Super Attack/Strength pots, less Sharks, more Prayer pots and a weapon for its special ability. Note that you will probably be killing it more than once in a trip depending on your combat level, therefore you should make the changes you feel are necessary.

2.3 – Killing the KBD

Do the same start as you would solo’ing the KBD. Once you reach the entrance to the lair, stand outside the gate and pot up. Take one dose of the: Super Attack, Super Strength, Super Antipoison and Antifire. After you’ve finished potting up, chuck on Protect from Melee, open the door and climb down the ladder. Quickly go and pull the lever, and run and attack the KBD. Use your weapons special (if you have one) and then switch to your normal weapon and hit away. The difference here is you and your team should split up, and surround it from different sides. This way, it spends more time spinning around than hitting one person.

Same goes if you were solo’ing the KBD; heal when needed, take a dose of your prayer pot when needed etc. and do this until you kill it. Once dead, pick up the loot, run about 10-15 squares away from the respawn area and turn off your prayer. Remain focused at all times as you can still easily die next time. As soon as he spawns, turn on protect from melee, run to it and attack it. If you need to pot up with super attack and strength, do it while attacking him rather than just as he respawns because you may get hit, run over to him and get hit by the Melee attack before you can pray. Again, separate your group so it spends more time spinning than attacking one single person. I must stress this: Do not think that because you’re owning it you can just relax. Remain on CONSTANT alert and watch your Prayer points and your Hit points. If you do this and heal/pot when necessary and you shall be fine. Pick up the drops (it drops a Black Dragonhide, Dragon Bone 100% of the time) and teleport out when you’re all out of Potions and food. A tip would be to share food in case someone is getting attacked a lot and is low while you’re very high.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much damage can Dragons do?
A: Dragon's can hit up to 50 damage with their Fire Attacks if you don't have an Anti Fire Shiled or Potion.

Q: Do Dragon's 1-hit me if I am not wearing a shield?
A: He is able to do so, but it is not 100%. He can hit very high if you don't use the shield, but a 1-hit is not automatically, however it's possibility.

Q: I have a low/medium/high combat level, which dragon should I train on?
A: Low => Probably best if you start fighting baby blue dragons with good armor, good food and teleport runes.
Medium => Baby blue dragons are going to become less of a challenge to you, so you could start with the blue dragons, bring your trusty antifire shield, good food,
weapons and teleport runes.
High => You could pretty much battle most of the dragons. Black dragons could be entertaining, if you bring your antifire shield and food then you can have a go at them.
