Red dragons are the second strongest type of dragons; stronger than blue dragons but weaker than black dragons. Red dragons are the least often killed dragon because of their location in the deep wilderness far away from any bank and players can be targeted by pkers.


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.

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.)
