The dragon scimitar is the strongest scimitar available in Old School RuneScape. It can only be wielded by players who have 60 Attack and have completed the Monkey Madness I quest. It also shares similar bonuses with Viggora's chainmace, with the chainmace being a crush weapon rather than a slash weapon.

It may be purchased from Daga on Ape Atoll for 100,000 coins, and non-Ironman accounts can purchase it from the Grand Exchange. A Monkeyspeak amulet does not need to be worn, as players can just right-click 'Trade' on Daga; however, you still must be in monkey form, unless you have completed Monkey Madness II after which the monkey form is no longer required. Players who have freed King Awowogei in Recipe for Disaster can easily reach Marim through the Ape Atoll Teleport spell (requires 64 Magic) to access Daga's shop on Ape Atoll more quickly. The scimitar is also a rare drop from the Wilderness boss Scorpia.

Players can attach a dragon scimitar ornament kit, obtained from elite clue scrolls, to cosmetically enhance the scimitar, creating a dragon scimitar (or). This only alters its appearance, and gives no stat enhancements. It can be dismantled, returning the scimitar and ornament kit.

As with most dragon equipment, the dragon scimitar cannot be made from raw materials using the Smithing skill.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

A player performing the dragon scimitar's special attack, Sever.

The dragon scimitar has a special attack, Sever, which hits with increased accuracy and prevents the target (players only) from using the Protect from Magic, Protect from Missiles, and Protect from Melee prayers for 5 seconds, consuming 55% of the player's special attack energy. Sever does not affect the Protect Item prayer. Rolls against the target's slash defence with 25% higher accuracy.[1]

Comparison with other weapons[edit | edit source]

The dragon scimitar is one of the best one-handed training weapons in the game, behind the Ghrazi rapier, Blade of saeldor, Abyssal tentacle, Abyssal whip, Abyssal dagger, Zamorakian hasta, Staff of the dead, and the Sarachnis cudgel. However, due to whips and hastae being unable to solely train strength, the dragon scimitar is commonly used to do so, and is therefore regarded as one of the best weapons in the game to train strength.

In comparison, the Saradomin sword offers a +82 Strength bonus and +82 Slash attack. Saradomin's blessed sword offers a +88 Strength bonus and +100 slash attack. The Abyssal whip offers a +82 Strength bonus and +82 slash attack. The Abyssal dagger offers a +75 Strength bonus and +75 stab attack.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The dragon scimitar was not actually released until almost four months after the release of the Monkey Madness I quest on 29 March 2005.
  • If the player asked Zeke to sell them a dragon scimitar, he would say, "Seriously, you'll be a monkey's uncle before you'll ever hold a dragon scimitar." The joke is that in Monkey Madness I, the player plays the role of a monkey's uncle to complete a certain part of the quest, and completing the quest is required to wield the dragon scimitar.
