Dragon chainbody detail.png

The dragon chainbody is the highest tier of chainbody in the game, and one of the rarest pieces of armour. One must have a Defence level of 60 to equip a Dragon chainbody.

Despite its rarity, dragon armour is surpassed in bonuses by many other armour sets, most notably armour from the Barrows brothers. The chainbody's lack of a strength bonus also means it is often substituted for pieces such as the fighter torso for slayer tasks and general melee training, where maximizing one's damage output takes precedence over defensive bonuses.

As with most dragon armour, players cannot make this item using the Smithing skill.

A dragon chainbody, dragon metal lump and dragon metal shard are required in order to forge a dragon platebody. This process requires 90 Smithing.

A dragon chainbody can be combined with a dragon chainbody ornament kit to make a gold-trimmed dragon chainbody (g). This cosmetic enhancement won't change the stats in any way.
