Brutal red dragons may be found in the Catacombs of Kourend. They have 100% drops of dragon bones and two red dragonhides, thus making them worth over 7,151 coins per kill. It is recommended to bring 1-2 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.
Depending on setup, skills and inventory space, players can expect around 35 dragons' worth of loot a hour. Also, at the surface, players can find an altar just north and a bank to the south.
