The dragon hasta is a one-handed, melee members weapon that requires 60 Attack and Barbarian Training in Smithing to be wielded. It can also be poisoned, just like spears.

Dragon hastae are obtained as loot from the brimstone chest, which requires a brimstone key to open. The dragon hasta is obtained in broken form but can be repaired, for free, by simply showing it to Otto Godblessed (the repair does NOT require Barbarian smithing).

Like most hastae, it offers negative defensive bonuses, but using it with a shield will provide players with more defence bonuses than the spear version.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

A player performs the dragon hasta's special attack, Unleash.

The dragon hasta has a special attack called Unleash, which drains the player's special attack bar and attacks with a 5% boost in accuracy and a 2.5% boost in damage for every 5% of special attack energy used. Notably, it ignores the 40% damage reduction from Protect from Melee if the opponent has the prayer active.[1]

For example, a player with 100% special attack energy who performs the special attack will have 100% increased accuracy (meaning the accuracy is doubled) and a damage boost of 50%.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
7 July 2021

The position of the weapon and its variants on female players has been adjusted so that they appear to be equipped properly.

14 February 2019

The examine text was changed. Previously, the text was "A poison-tipped, one-handed dragon hasta."

24 January 2019

The Karambwan poison variant is no longer tradeable. Noted variants of the dragon hasta(kp) that remain in the player's possession were converted into the item Fake dragon hasta(kp).

17 January 2019

Item value decreased from 100,000 to 62,400 coins.

14 January 2019

The Dragon hasta no longer deals full damage to the Corporeal Beast. [2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The special attack animation of the dragon hasta is the same as that of the dragon sword, sharing the same red glow rather than the entire hasta being covered in it.
  • Before an update, the broken dragon hasta had a higher value than the fixed dragon hasta.
  • As of 2019 January, since Dragon hasta(kp) cannot be noted due to being untradeable, any previously noted Dragon hasta(kp) were converted into the item Fake dragon hasta(kp).
