The dragon slayer effect is a group of buffs and debuffs that apply when fighting various dragons.

Dragon bane equipment[edit | edit source]

Main article: Dragon bane equipment

Dragon bane melee equipment are tier 80 melee weapons and a shield, made by smithing a bane longsword + 4, bane off hand longsword + 4, a bane 2h sword + 4, or a bane square shield + 4 with draconic visages at 80 Smithing; all four can be augmented.

When using dragon bane melee equipment in both hands (dual weilding, main-hand plus shield, or two-handed sword), damage against dragons is increased by 25%. When using the shield, adjacent dragon targets that hit the wearer have reflect damage dealt in the same manner as armour spikes - damage equal to Smithing level, doubled. This can be stacked with armour spikes.

Dragon bane ammunition[edit | edit source]

Main article: Dragon bane equipment

Dragon bane ammunition are tier 60 bolts and arrows that can be used with any crossbow or bow. While fighting dragons, dragonbane ammunition deals 25% more damage with abilities, 40% more damage with auto-attacks (including Legacy Mode), and increases hit chance by +30%. You do not need to have both hands full with dragonbane-using items.

Dragonbane ammunition is extremely effective. The hit chance bonus is additive to the final hit chance, which means that it can easily make lesser weapons 100% accurate even against stronger dragons like hydrix dragons or the Queen Black Dragon. If a main-hand crossbow with dragonbane ammunition is combined with Off-hand Elite Death Lotus darts, the maximum damage - and damage per second in general - exceed even tier 92 weapon damage (see dragonbane bolt#Effectiveness for calculation), making them the best option when using ranged.

Dragon bane ammunition is required for the first phase of rune dragons.
