file Mithril dragons are metal dragons found in the Ancient Cavern and the extended area of the Brimhaven Dungeon resource dungeon. To access the Ancient Cavern, the player needs to have started the Pyre ship section of Firemaking in Barbarian Training. To access the extended area of the Brimhaven Dungeon resource dungeon, the player must wear the Daemonheim aura 4 from the elite set of the Daemonheim achievements. These dragons have extremely high defence but, since they are made of metal, are relatively weak to magic, with earth spells being their primary weakness. Mithril dragons are often killed for their possible drops, which include the dragon full helms, draconic visages, chewed bones, and elite clue scrolls.

Mithril dragons are an excellent source of charms, as they drop four of them at a time. They are also a good source of rune salvage.

When they originally were released, they broke the King Black Dragon's record as the strongest dragon, though this has since changed.

Main drop[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ Estimated based on 64,914 kills from the RuneMetrics drop logging project.
  2. ^ 1/31,744 if wearing Ring of Fortune or better.
  3. ^ It is possible to obtain one shark and nothing else. This drop rate is based on the total number of sharks dropped.

Tertiary drops[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ Estimated based on 64,914 kills from the RuneMetrics drop logging project.
  2. ^ Only during the Fur 'n' Seek wish list
  3. ^ This drop only attempts to roll should you fail to roll a hard clue. Should you get this item, there's a 1% chance it'll be upgraded to a sealed clue scroll (master).

Rare drop table[edit | edit source]

This monster has access to the rare drop table.
Luck-enhancing items are not required to access the table but they will increase the chance of accessing the rare drop table and may also improve the loot received from it.

  1. ^ Jagex. Mod Timbo's Twitter account. 19 January 2018. (Archived from the original on 22 January 2019.) 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."
  2. ^ Indicates a failed 1/10 roll for Hazelmere's signet ring.
  3. ^ Indicates a roll for Hazelmere's signet ring without tier 4 luck.
  4. ^ Requires tier 4 luck. Rarer than the vecna skull.

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

Universal drops are dropped by nearly every monster outside of Daemonheim.
These items are dropped alongside main drops.

Achievement[edit | edit source]

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!
  • ninja 25 April 2016 (Update):
    • Improved respawn rates for Mithril Dragons.
  • patch 20 October 2009 (Update):
    • When fighting mithril dragons, other dragons shouldn't be able to barge in and steal focus.
  • patch 9 September 2009 (Update):
    • Improved various dragons’ fire-breath code behaviour to match the KBD's existing behaviour. The actual animation has not changed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During the fusing of the dragonkin key, the mithril dragon temporarily appears as level 150.
  • In a Postbag from the hedge, Oziach pointed out that there are bronze dragons, iron dragons, steel dragons, and mithril dragons when he was chatting with Evil Dave. Oziach deduced that there will be adamant dragons, rune dragons, and even dragon dragons.
  • When killed, it says on the Adventurer's Log: "I killed [number] of mithril dragons." If the player killed 1, it would be "I killed a mithril dragon."
  • Their examine text indicates that metallic dragons, or at least mithril ones, may be the result of unnatural experimentation; of course, this may also refer to how they were created by the dragonkin. With the release of the quest One of a Kind, this has been confirmed.
  • Mithril dragons are the only metallic dragons that do not drop the dragon platelegs and plateskirt.
