Dragon (player-owned farm)

Dragons are livestock that can be raised and bred at Manor Farm once unlocked at level 92 Farming. They can be kept in large pens, which can be built at level 60 Construction, or the breeding pen, which can be built at level 55 Construction. Large pens have a capacity of three animals each, and breeding pens have a capacity of four animals. Dragons can be obtained by breeding or as a rare drop from killing the respective chromatic dragons. The King Black Dragon and Queen Black Dragon drop black dragon eggs; royal dragon eggs can only be obtained through breeding. The large pens will need to be unlocked from the Farmers' Market before being able to build the pen.

In total, there are five different breeds, including the shiny royal dragon.

Like all farm animals, they may have up to three traits, which determine their selling price in beans to buyers, among other effects, and can be sold on the Grand Exchange in their unchecked form. Once they have been checked, however, they may only be traded directly between players or sold to Raptor, the dragon expert. Six (12 with Senior Master Farmer rank in Farming reputation) can be sold every three days.

While in a pen, dragons may produce dragon manure, which can be used to make ultracompost.

In any individual pen, dragons will eat either raw fish, retrievable as fishy mush; or raw meat, retrievable as meaty mush. You cannot mix fish and meat within the same pen. Raw beef and raw bird meat can be cheaply obtained in raw beef packs and raw bird meat pack. Raw lobster and raw tuna are amongst the cheapest and most easily available food options for dragons.

Perks[edit | edit source]

Placing an elder dragon of any breed in a large pen with a farm totem grants the perk "Dragon Ultra Combo", granting a 1/1,000 chance of receiving an ancient effigy when checking a fully grown Farming patch that was treated with ultracompost. If elder dragons are placed in two pens with farming totems, the chance is increased to 1/750.
