|Tactic:||It will attack with range, magic, or melee. The recommended strategy is to range it, while using the range prayer, and wearing Karil's armour. This will eliminate the melee attack and the range attack, and severely lower the magic attack (due to your high magic defence bonus). Using a rune crossbow with mithril or higher bolts is quite effective.|
Melee: Attack the mithril dragon in close range and use protect from magic prayer. Drink potions as necessary again, but always ensure you are doing the best you can. It is recommended that you keep auto-retaliate OFF, as other dragons may attack you after you have killed a dragon, causing you to run away from the loot. If you are using Veracs, follow the same instructions as with the rest of melee, but remember to watch your health more carefully and keep checking that you anti fire-breath potions are working.
|Notes:||Be sure to be wearing an Anti-dragonbreath shield when near these dragons! As with most dragons, crush attacks are effective against Mithril Dragons. Mithril dragons have much stronger attack than Brutal Green Dragons, so watch out! Immune to poison; Unless a Smoke spell is casted on it.|
