Bronze dragons are metallic dragons found deep within the Brimhaven Dungeon and the Catacombs of Kourend. They are the weakest of the six metallic dragons, but they still should not be underestimated. It is highly recommended to use an anti-dragon shield as otherwise these monsters can deal fatal damage via long-ranged dragonfire. Antifire potions are also recommended, and using both the shield and antifires will negate all dragonfire damage. With just one alone, some damage will be inflicted. It is the only metallic dragon that does not drop the very rare draconic visage. Due to that and their lackluster drops aside from the rare dragon platelegs or skirt, they are not as commonly killed as other dragons.
If they are fought without complete dragonfire protection, it is recommended to stay in melee range and use Protect from Melee, to reduce the amount of dragonfire damage taken.
The following drop rates are provided by Jagex, unless otherwise specified.
