Gear Setup

  • 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.

Recommended Items:

  • 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:

  1. Use a charged Amulet of Glory to teleport to Taverley and then enter the dungeon from there.
  2. Use a Slayer ring to teleport to Turael’s cave and then navigate through the dungeon.

Killing Blue Dragons:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. With the Dusty Key in your inventory, you can access the blue dragon chamber, which is locked behind a gate.
  4. Equip your dragonfire protection. For Ranged, equip your Anti-Dragon Shield; for Magic, use Protect from Magic prayer.
  5. Attack the blue dragons, and use food and prayer as needed to sustain your health and protect against dragonfire.
  6. Collect dragon bones and blue dragonhides as drops. These can be used for Prayer training and crafting, respectively.
  7. When your inventory is full, teleport back to a bank using an Amulet of Glory or another teleport method.
  8. Repeat the process until you’ve collected enough materials or reached your desired experience or loot goals.

Important Tips:

  • 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.
