Description: Killing frost dragons
Please add tips to the subpage, rather than the article below.

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 15 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 24,732 coins each. Players may gain upwards of 692,496 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.

Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."

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.
  • Initially on release, frost dragons were only capable of using melee and magic. Due to heavy botting, they were eventually given a ranged attack and a reflect ability.
  • Frost dragons were created with experimentation by Kerapac, as detailed in Forcae's journal.
  • Unlike other dragons who simply spawn in as normal, frost dragons have a summoning circle underneath them, similarly to how players summon standard familiars.
