1.0 - Introduction

We all know what Dragon is don't we? Dragon is the third best armour and weapon type in RuneScape. Dragon cannot be smithed; can only be bought from shops and players, or dropped by certain monsters. The chance of receiving a dragon item as a drop from any NPC is very low, and you could spend an age attempting to get this equipment. This guide will hopefully assist you in finding which monsters are best to get certain dragon items from.

2.0 - Dragon Items

There are many types of dragon weapons and armour. This section outlines them all.

Dragon full helm

The only monster that drops the Dragon full helm is the Mithril dragon (level 304), located in the Ancient Cavern. The entrance to the Ancient Cavern is located in the lake at the top of the Baxtorian waterfall, just southwest of the Barbarian Outpost.



Dragon Med Helm Image

The best creature to get this item from is the King Black Dragon. There is only one KBD in RuneScape, and it can be found under the Lava Maze in it's very own lair. The lower the level the NPC is, the lower the chance of getting a Dragon medium from a drop. Dagannoth kings also have a possibility of dropping a dragon medium helmet. Dagannoth kings are located in the Waterbirth Island dungeon.



Dragon Platelegs/skirts

Dragon plate legs and Dragon plate skirts are only dropped by the Bronze dragons, Iron dragons, and Steel dragons. Dragon plate legs and Dragon plate skirts have a higher drop rate to any other dragon item, but can still take ages to get from a drop. The metal dragons do however, drop many other dragon items so if you do not get a Dragon plate leg or Dragon plate skirt drop you may still be lucky.



Dragon shield left half

Black demons, Shadow warriors, Fire giants drop half shields. Black demons can be found: Brimhaven Dungeon, first floor near metal dragons; Taverley dungeon, just past blue dragons. Shadow warriors can be found: only in the Legends' Guild basement. Easier, commonly found creatures like Chaos druids, Skeletons, Moss Giants, Bloodvelds or Zombies also drop them, but the chances are impossibly small. Also Flesh Crawlers and Ankous can drop half shields, they can be found in the Stronghold of Security. The creatures that drop it are generally easy kill, so it is the rarity of the drop that will pose the problem for you.



Dragon chainbody

The Dragon Chain body is dropped by two monsters in the desert, the Kalphite Queen and Dust Devils. It is an extremely rare drop and the Kalphite Queen is very hard to kill, do not count on getting one of these. They are one of the rarest items in RuneScape and you could spend months just trying to kill a Kalphite Queen yet alone getting the drop.

Another possible way of getting a dragon chainbody would be to gamble 500 role points in the minigame, Barbarian Assault. This is not recommended as the chances of winning a dragon chain are extremely low.



Dragon 2 handed sword

This legendary sword is only dropped by two very high leveled monsters - the Chaos Elemental. and the Kalphite Queen. Both of these creatures are at the height of monster combat in Runescape, with many powerful and multi-style attacks

When hunting for this sword be sure to fight in team of at least two or more since the battle will not be easy.


Dragon axe

The dragon axe is only obtainable through trade or killing a level 303 Dagannoth king at Waterbirth island, which is extremely difficult. It is best to team this beast to obtain this magnificent prize, as it is barely possible alone. If you do, however, manage to get one, great job!

The Dragon axe cuts logs at a faster rate than a rune axe.



Dragon spear

The best creatures to get a Dragon spear drop from are the Fire giants or Greater demons. Fire Giants can be found: Waterfall Dungeon; fire giant dungeon in level 52 wilderness; Brimhaven dungeon, both levels. Greater Demons can be found: Brimhaven dungeon, second level; Gu'Tanoth in the cage; Demonic ruins, level 47 wilderness. Flesh Crawlers are also droppers of the Dragon Spear. They are located in the Stronghold of Security. Moss giants drop dragon spears too, but due to the low combat of theirs, the chances of getting one isn't very high. Moss giants can be found: Brimhaven Dungeon, Varrock Sewers.

While it may be very tempting to go after the very low level creatures that drop these items, the chance of receiving a dragon drop from them is very low.

The Rest

The remaining dragon items (predominantly weapons), can be bought from shops for a certain price. It would be much easier for you to buy them and I do not recommend trying to get them from a drop. Dragon ranged weaponary, such as darts and arrows, can be stolen from Imps found in the Impetuous Impulses minigame. The information is below on which creatures drop the above dragon items.
