Bronze dragons are metal dragons found in the Brimhaven Dungeon and the Chaos Tunnels. While they are the weakest of the metallic dragons, they are still powerful monsters. An anti-dragon/dragonfire shield and/or an antifire/super antifire potion are essential when fighting them as they can reduce the damage from their dragonfire and when used simultaneously block dragonfire damage altogether. Their appearance has been updated on many occasions.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The last Bronze dragon I killed I found water spells took them down effectively.

Bronze dragons are the weakest of the metallic dragons, but their bronze scales are far thicker than normal bronze armour. They lay in wait for you in Brimhaven Dungeon and the Chaos Tunnels. You'll be well served by taking a defence against their breath.

Chaeldar

As with all dragons, protection from their dragonfire is required. An Anti-dragon shield or type of dragonfire shield can be combined with an antifire potion and a one-handed weapon to negate the deadly breath. With 85 herblore, super antifire potions allow the use of off-hand or two-handed weapons. Super antifires are a preferred option due to its high level of dragonfire resistance; no dragonfire resisting shield is needed, allowing two-handed weapons to be used effectively.

Using Magic[edit | edit source]

Bronze dragons are weak to water spells, although any magic attack will prove effective.

Using Melee[edit | edit source]

If melee is preferred, you should use your highest level one-handed weapon(s), in tandem with an anti-dragon shield/dragonfire shield. Without a specific melee style weakness, use the strongest weapon available to you.

Using Ranged[edit | edit source]

Due to their classification as melee combatants, it is not recommended to use ranged to take down these dragons. If ranged is still preferred, then seek to increase your accuracy with potions and prayers.

Drops[edit | edit source]

Bronze dragons have drops similar to those of black dragons, although they do NOT drop the draconic visage.

The average Bronze dragon kill is worth 4,068.94 coins.

  1. ^ Jagex. Mod Timbo's Twitter account. 19 January 2018. (Archived from the original on 22 January 2019.) Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."
  2. ^ Indicates a failed 1/10 roll for Hazelmere's signet ring.

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

Universal drops are dropped by nearly every monster outside of Daemonheim.
These items are dropped alongside main drops.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • ninja 25 April 2016 (Update):
    • Improved respawn rates for Bronze Dragons.
  • patch 9 September 2009 (Update):
    • Improved various dragons’ fire-breath code behaviour to match the KBD's existing behaviour. The actual animation has not changed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Currently, the bronze dragon holds the record of being the lowest-levelled monster to drop elite clue scrolls.
  • Bronze dragons have the fewest number of spawns for any metallic dragon. There are only 6 spawns in total; 3 reside in Brimhaven Dungeon, while another 3 reside in the Chaos Tunnels.
