The average Rune dragon kill, including its unique drops, is worth 42,629.11. Without the unique drops, the average kill is worth 36,321.

To get back to the laboratory underneath Lithkren, players can travel using the rowboat from the quest; on the west side of the island or, after completion, taking a digsite pendant and using it on the strange machine north of the rune dragon room, adding a teleport straight to Lithkren on it. This guide assumes 7 kills per trip and 5 trips per hour. Your profit per hour may vary depending on your speed. At maximum efficiency, it is possible to obtain 55-60 kills per hour.

Rune dragons have multiple attacks, similar to mithril and adamant dragons. Along with standard dragonfire attacks, they have a standard melee, ranged and magic attack (which resembles Water Wave), as well as two special attacks.

The first attack is two small electric bolts, which are launched around the player's position and homes in on them. This deals 4-7 damage per tick for a few seconds. If a player is wearing insulated boots this damage is reduced to 1-2 per tick.

The second attack is a ranged attack that hits through Protect from Missiles, and uses the Life Leech effect from enchanted onyx bolts, where the dragon will heal itself for 100% of the damage dealt to the player.
