List of Dragons in RuneScape and How to Kill Them: Part Two
This is a sequel of the dragon guide that I’ve wrote. This will list six more powerful dragons in RuneScape.
Notes : Iron Dragon is located in the same exact place as Steel Dragon. Sometimes when you’re closer to Steel Dragon than the Iron one, the Steel will attack you so make sure you’re stand away from the Steel Dragon. After 15 minutes, both Dragon will become tolerant and won’t attack you anymore. This will make it easy to pick on Iron Dragon. Iron Dragon is the weakest dragon that drop Draconic Visage. However, its drop rate is much rarer than any other Dragon that drop Draconic Visage.

Combat Level : 227
Hitpoints : 190
Max hit : 21 with Melee
Habitats : Taverley Dungeon, Lava Maze and Evil Chicken’s Lair
Fighting Strategies :
Melee : Abyssal whip would be the most effective method when you don’t have high herblore level. If you’re low on defence, melee prayer is absolutely necessary but wearing Barrow armor will tamper most of the damage. If you have high herblore level, you could drink Super Antifire potion and use Zamorakian Spear instead. Safe Spotting with Halberd is possible and it will become the most effective way when using melee.
Ranged : This is the most common method to kill Black Dragon as well as other Dragons. By standing on the safe spot using Rune Crossbow, Mithril Bolts and Ava’s Accumulator, you will barely need any food and you’ll only lose very small amount of money since Ava’s Accumulator will suck up most of your ammunition back. Using a Poisoned Emerald bolts will also effective to this dragon since this dragon has a lot of hitpoints. During the poison process, you should switch to another bolts.
Magic : This is uncommon method but could still be effective. It’s recommended that you have finished Family Crest quest and get a Chaos Gauntlet. This way, your fairly cheap Bolts Spell will have its max hits increased by 3 and using Blast or Wave spells would not become much different than Bolts. With Chaos Gauntlet and level 50+ magic, you’ll approximately need to cast 65 Fire Bolts spells to kill one Black Dragon.
Notes : Black Dragon can be profitable if a player have at least 70 ranged or strength. By using halberd, player won’t need any food and will kill the Dragon pretty fast and with the poisoned bolt, the dragon will also be killed with pretty fast speed.
