The King Black Dragon (or KBD) is the strongest and highest leveled monster which can be found living in Gielinor on RuneScape Classic. Players usually fight the dragon alone using melee, but it is possible to have another player ranging or casting spells on him from afar. However, it should be noted that ranged and prayer are significantly drained upon attacking, and therefore not reliable to use. Unlike other game versions, the KBD doesn't directly inflict poison, however a Cure poison Potion may still prove necessary for the journey. He can be found in his lair deep inside the Wilderness near the Lava maze. The ladder leading down to his lair is surrounded by several[Clarify] Lesser demons and Poison spiders. The KBD is often fought for its rare and valuable drops including the uncut dragonstone, left half dragon square shield and dragon medium helmet.

Recommended Equipment[edit | edit source]

Note: The Anti-dragon shield is only needed at the start of a fight with the King black dragon, and some players choose to retreat and switch to a Rune kite shield or Dragon square shield for increased defense immediately after taking the first hit.

The same gear would be used by a mage with the addition of a chosen god cape/spell and charge. Players using ranged should use a magic longbow and rune arrows.
