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.
Combat Level : 276
Hitpoints : 240
Max hit : 25 with Melee, 10 with its unique breaths.
Habitats : King Black Dragon’s Lair (near Lava Maze)
Fighting Strategies :
Melee : Melee is recommended if you’re going to kill this Dragon alone. By using a Prayer, KBD will rarely hit above zero when it’s attacking with Melee. However, its unique breath will still hit you no matter what. Using Abbysal Whip would be the best method if you don’t have high herblore level to make Super Antifire potion. Safe Spotting using Halberd would be impossible since the Dragon itself will fire its breath in ranged method.
Ranged : Unlike with other Dragons, killing KBD with Ranged can be more difficult than killing it with Melee. It’s because the Dragon will always attack with its unique breathes with fast speed and you cannot avoid the damage with anything, including Protect From Magic prayer. Using Ruby Bolts (e) would be effective only if you bring a team with you. That way, the Dragon will not only attack you but also others so you won’t be damaged too fast. Otherwise, you should use Diamond Bolts (e) since it will decrease the KBD Ranged defense.
Magic : Using Ice Burst/Blitz/Barrage is an effective way to kill King Black Dragon. The method would include freeze the dragon, keep attacking until 2 seconds before the freeze effect has over. Move a little bit so the KBD will have to move to attack you again. That should make the KBD no longer immune to the Freeze effect (immunity last only 4 seconds). Attack him and repeat the process again. The running will not be necessary if you bring group with you and since the spell can be failed occasionally, you will still take damage from its unique breaths or probably melee if you’re too close.
Notes : King Black Dragon should only be killed for challenge because its drops are almost the same as Steel Dragon. It can be really fun when you’re killing this Dragon in team. KBD has 3 different unique breaths with different effect.
The first breath is an Ice Breath which will stop player from moving and attacking for about 5 seconds. The second breath is a Shockwave breath that will reduce the stats of the player. The third breath will poison the player for 8 damage overtime so it’s a good idea to bring Antipoison while fighting KBD. KBD will occasionally use the normal Dragon breath and if it’s using it too often, player will find it easier to kill this Boss monster.
