Black dragons are the strongest type of dragons out of the colours of dragons - blue, red and black. The King Black Dragon is the only dragon that is stronger than black dragons. Black dragons can be found at the end of the Taverley dungeon and also within the wilderness Lava Maze dungeon.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Like all dragons, fighting them using the Paralyze Monster prayer is very helpful as they cannot attack back. Bringing restore prayer potions would be wise to restore prayer points if using this prayer. Even when intending to use prayer players should bring sharks or high healing food to counter the minimal dragonfire damage taken when entering combat, and for emergencies.

Recommended equipment

  • Anti-dragon shield (Failure to equip the anti-dragon shield while fighting dragons is very dangerous as they can hit very high numbers.)
