Green dragons are the weakest of the four adult chromatic dragons and the weakest adult dragon that can breathe fire in RuneScape, with a combat level of 63. They mainly attack with magic and a long-ranged dragon breath attack. If the player is in melee distance, they can also use melee. As with all adult dragons, wielding an anti-dragon shield or dragonfire shield, using Protect from Magic, or being under the effects of a super antifire potion are a must; otherwise, they can breathe fire which can deal extremely high damage (1800-3000). They are also the only one of the four chromatic dragons that doesn't have an attackable baby form; baby green dragons are only available as level 99 Summoning familiars. They can be found in various locations throughout the Wilderness as well as the Chaos Tunnels. The minimum money made upon one kill is 3,420 coins.

Killing Green dragons for their bones and hides is an old and renowned method of money making. A combined inventory of dragon bones and green dragonhides is worth approximately 48,000 coins. The bones and dragonhides are commonly utilised by players training Prayer and Crafting respectively.

If assigned for a Slayer task by Vannaka, brutal green dragons may take their place. This requires the completion of the Barbarian Firemaking training.

The Wilderness is where most Green dragons are found.

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."

Wilderness drop table[edit | edit source]

This monster has access to the Wilderness shared loot table, which is a tertiary drop. To access the table, it has to be killed inside the Wilderness.
Luck-enhancing items are not required to access the table, but do increase the chance of doing so, as does doing higher-level content.
