Dragon equipment is a family of tier 60 equipment available to pay-to-play players. Dragon items are made of a hard, dark-red metal called Orikalkum (with the exception of darts and arrows, which are made of dragon talons). It is believed that Dragon equipment was created by the Necrosyrtes, a faction of the dragonkin, and distributed to shops by the Consortium of Extra-Planar Merchandise Transferral Specialists. Dragon equipment are forged from Orikalkum by the dragonkin with direct, controlled dragonfire, which causes it to have different properties from Orikalkum equipment. Dragon equipment cannot be forged directly by players.

Weapons[edit | edit source]

Dragon weapons are weapons requiring level 60 Attack to wield (or level 60 Ranged for several existing ranged weapons or 60 Magic for battlestaves respectively). Except for darts, arrows and crossbows, they cannot be created by players, and are generally obtained as drops from various high-levelled monsters, though some can be bought from specific stores (and of course from the Grand Exchange or from other players). Most offer access to a Special attack, except for darts and every weapon released after the Evolution of Combat. Many require the completion of a specific quest to be wielded.

Daggers, claws, longswords, maces and scimitars can be upgraded to a superior tier 70 version using a Wilderness hilt.

Armour[edit | edit source]

Dragon armour is tier 60 power armour, requiring level 60 Defence (and, in many cases, a quest) to wear. It is seen by many players as the next step up from the tier 50 rune armour, although tier 55 granite armour offers defensive bonuses between the two despite not being a metal and consisting of only six items.

The dragon square shield is created by combining a shield left half with a shield right half on an anvil, which requires level 60 Smithing. Note that the Legends' Quest has to be completed to be able to wield or make this shield. To repair the dragon platebody, level 92 Smithing is required, along with a blast fusion hammer. There are 3 parts needed to smith the dragon platebody: the ruined dragon armour slice, the ruined dragon armour lump, and the ruined dragon armour shard. Players can only smith this in the Ancient Caverns, and 2,000 Smithing experience is gained for doing so. The Assist System may be used to repair the dragon platebody.

Superior dragon weapons[edit | edit source]

Superior dragon weapons are dragon weapons that have been upgraded using a Wilderness hilt, obtained as a drop from the Wilderness slayer drop table. The upgrade increases the weapons' stats from tier 60 to 70 while retaining special attacks, and also increases the Attack level required to equip. They are distinguishable from regular dragon weapons in that superior dragon weapons have hilts and other details that are coloured a dark blue.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included—see here for how to help out!
  • patch 7 January 2019 (Update):
    • Dragon armour is now power armour.
  • patch 18 April 2016 (Update):
    • Dragon armour no longer has a small gap between the player's waist, and now correctly lines up.
  • patch 25 March 2009 (Update):
    • The horns on dragon medium helms no longer float on female players. This was fixed alongside the dragon armour update.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

All dragon weapons confirmed.
  • Dragon equipment has been a frequent subject of Jagex's April Fools jokes in the past. spinning plates (a white ceramic plate with a small picture of a dragon) were released on 4 April 2005 in reply to the constant demand for the then-unreleased dragon platebody, and toy kites were released on 1 April 2008 foreshadowing the actual release of the dragon kiteshield four years later.
  • Dragon arrow and dragon dart tips are actually made from a dragon's talons and not from dragon metal; this may explain why they are not red in colour.
  • Prior to the Evolution of Combat, dragon arrows could only be fired from a dark bow, which had two special attacks that depend on whether dragon or other arrows are equipped.
  • On 6 March 2012, dragon armour, along with many other armours, received a graphical rework.
  • Dragon equipment is the only standard metal to incorporate weapons of all three (Ranged, Melee, and Magic) attack styles.
  • Prior to the Mining and Smithing rework, dragon armour had the stats of tank armour.
