This article is about the perk. For other uses, see Dragon Slayer (disambiguation).

Dragon Slayer is an Invention perk that increases damage dealt to dragons by 7%. It can be created in weapon and armour gizmos.

Even though living wyverns can be considered dragons, they are not affected by the Dragon Slayer perk. However, skeletal wyverns are affected by it. The perk does not have any effect on Anagami, Arhat, or revenant dragons.

The Dragon Slayer perk is an excellent option when augmenting equipment for medium- to high-level Slayer training. It is most useful on ranged armour (for chromatic, celestial, rune, and gemstone dragons) and magic armour (for metal dragons and skeletal wyverns); frost dragons are the only dragons that are weak to melee.

The damage increase from the Dragon Slayer perk affects damage over time abilities that have a bleed effect i.e. Dismember, Combust, etc.
