If you’re an adventurer looking to take on the formidable Blue Dragons, you’ve come to the right place. Blue Dragons are a popular choice for both slayers and dragon enthusiasts, offering valuable drops and a thrilling challenge.
- Combat Stats: It’s recommended to have at least 70 Ranged or Magic for effective and safe killing.
- Dragonfire Protection: You need either an Anti-Dragon Shield or Dragonfire Ward or a potion with the Protect from Magic prayer. Without dragonfire protection, blue dragons can deal heavy damage.
- Weapon: Use a Ranged or Magic weapon that you are proficient with. For Ranged, a good choice is a rune crossbow with broad bolts or better. For Magic, a spell like Fire Bolt or better is effective.
- Armour: Wear the best Ranged or Magic armour you can afford. For Ranged, Karil’s crossbow and Karil’s crossbow bolt racks are a great choice. For Magic, Ahrim’s equipment works well.
- Shield or Offhand: If you’re using Ranged, consider a shield such as an Anti-Dragon Shield to reduce damage. For Magic, you can use an Elemental Shield or similar item.
- Ammunition or Runes: If using Ranged, use broad bolts, rune bolts, or better. For Magic, use the best spells you can cast.
- Food: Bring high-healing food like sharks or better. Saradomin Brews or similar high-healing items can be useful for extended trips.
Location: Blue dragons can be found in several locations in OSRS, but one of the most popular is in the Taverley Dungeon. To reach this location, you can:
- Use a charged Amulet of Glory to teleport to Taverley and then enter the dungeon from there.
- Use a Slayer ring to teleport to Turael’s cave and then navigate through the dungeon.
Killing Blue Dragons:
- Enter the Taverley Dungeon and navigate to the blue dragon area. You will need to kill one of the blue dragons to get the dusty key.
- Kill a baby blue dragon or a brutal blue dragon to obtain the Dusty Key. The baby blue dragon is often more accessible and lower level, making it an easier target.
- With the Dusty Key in your inventory, you can access the blue dragon chamber, which is locked behind a gate.
- Equip your dragonfire protection. For Ranged, equip your Anti-Dragon Shield; for Magic, use Protect from Magic prayer.
- Attack the blue dragons, and use food and prayer as needed to sustain your health and protect against dragonfire.
- Collect dragon bones and blue dragonhides as drops. These can be used for Prayer training and crafting, respectively.
- When your inventory is full, teleport back to a bank using an Amulet of Glory or another teleport method.
- Repeat the process until you’ve collected enough materials or reached your desired experience or loot goals.
- Consider using the Protect from Melee prayer alongside dragonfire protection to reduce damage from dragon melee attacks.
- The Blue Dragon Isle in the Corsair Cove also has blue dragons, but it’s further from a bank. Use it if you want less competition and don’t mind a longer trip to the bank.
- Be mindful of other players in multi-combat areas.
- Keep an eye on your health and prayer points to avoid getting killed.
