Brutal black dragons may be found in the Catacombs of Kourend. Average drop from them is worth 28,188.94 It is recommended to bring 2-3 Prayer potions (depending on Prayer level), a Ranging potion, and an Extended antifire. Protect from Magic should always be activated, or death is certain due to their extremely powerful magical attacks as well as dragonfire. Together, Protect from Magic and Antifire nullify all damage from a distance, but players need to make sure that both are on simultaneously. Melee damage is still highly damaging, so players should be careful if picking up loot while next to an attacking dragon.

Players should always restore prayer at Player-owned house or at Clan Wars and teleport back using Xeric's talisman.
