Killing black dragons gives decent Combat experience as well as steady money in the form of their 100% drops, dragon bones and black dragonhide. It is recommended to use a high-level Ranged weapon to kill these creatures as they are weak to bolts.

One place to kill black dragons is the Evil Chicken's Lair, accessed from Zanaris. This spot is rarely crowded. Players need to use a raw chicken on the shrine in front of it to enter. It is easy to bank from there by walking to Zanaris bank. It also has a safespot in the entrance to the tunnel that takes you to the mining area.

Players who have completed Dragon Slayer II may prefer killing black dragons in the Myths' Guild basement, as they are much closer to a bank alongside ease of access with the mythical cape teleport.

On the other hand, players, especially low levels, can feel free to kill them in Taverley Dungeon, but this is a popular spot. In that case, bring an Antipoison, some food, and Falador teleports. Also, a dusty key is needed, like blue dragons, unless you have level 70 Agility.
