Frost dragons reside in the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon resource dungeon. The dungeon requires a minimum level of 85 Dungeoneering to access, and inside are a total of 12 dragons. Frost dragons attack with all three combat styles, as well as with dragonfire. The dungeon can be accessed easily by using the fairy ring network with the combination aiq.

Killing frost dragons is highly profitable as their bones are currently worth 11,197 coins each. Players may gain upwards of 313,516 coins per full inventory of bones, or more if using Magic notepaper or a Beast of Burden familiar.

Frost dragons can be killed on the cluster assignment dragons and Creatures of Daemonheim given by Laniakea.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Each frost dragon will attack with either their Ranged or Magic attack for the entire fight; which style it will use depends on whichever attack is randomly used first, so the player should keep an eye on the first attack and pray accordingly for that kill, unless using Soul Split or a healing familiar such as a Bunyip or Unicorn stallion.

When fighting frost dragons, a blue recoil orb will appear and start circling the dragon. Do NOT attack while the orb is out, as it will rebound 80% of any damage that would have been dealt. Have auto-retaliate switched OFF when fighting these dragons; when the orb appears, click away from the dragon to stop attacking and wait. The orb will circle three times before it disappears, after which the dragon can be attacked again. This makes frost dragons a slightly tougher monster to fight but should not heavily hinder any higher level player.

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!
  • patch 15 July 2019 (Update):
    • Frost dragons will now correctly count towards the Dragons cluster task.
  • ninja 25 April 2016 (Update):
    • Improved respawn rates for Frost Dragons.
  • patch 7 June 2011 (Update):
    • Frost dragons can now be left-click attacked.
  • patch 21 September 2010 (Update):
    • Adjusted the combat checks when using cannons to fight frost dragons.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When a bucket of milk is used on a Frost dragon, a message in the chat box will appear: They're great! This is a reference to the Frosties/Frosted Flakes breakfast cereal.
  • For a while after release, Frost dragons only used melee and magic attack, and did not have their orb reflector ability. However, due to heavy botting at the time, Jagex added a ranged attack and the orb reflector ability to combat botting.
  • Frost dragons were created with experimentation by Kerapac, as detailed in Forcae's journal.
  • In the area containing the dragons are randomly appearing Frost dragon bones spawns. The bones from these spawns are unobtainable, even by Telekinetic Grab — this formerly caused bots to 'try' to pick up the bones, effectively incapacitating them. However, it seems that bots have been able to differentiate the random spawns from the legitimate spawns, and bots have seemingly disappeared from the area after the release of Botwatch.
