Red dragons are second-to-most powerful of the adult chromatic dragons As with all adult dragons, an anti-dragon shield and/or antifire potion is essential when fighting them to mitigate damage from their dragonfire. The red dragonhides and dragon bones that they drop are worth substantial amounts of money, but red dragons are rarely killed as they are only found in two locations: Brimhaven Dungeon (which requires 875 coins, an axe, and 30 Agility to access) and the western side of Feldip Hills Underground beneath the Myths' Guild (which requires the completion of the Grandmaster quest Dragon Slayer II to access).
The ability to be assigned red dragons can be purchased for 50 Slayer reward points. Once unlocked, they can be disabled, but players must spend another 50 points to unlock them again. Killing brutal red dragons in the Catacombs of Kourend will also count toward a red dragon task.
After completing the Karamja Elite Diary, red dragons in Brimhaven Dungeon will drop noted red dragonhides when killed.
Locations[edit | edit source]
- Brimhaven Dungeon (6 spawns, requires level 33 Agility)

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Red dragons formerly inhabited the Red Dragon Isle (now Lava Dragon Isle) in the Wilderness, but they were replaced with Lava dragons in the Wilderness Rejuvenation update (in canon, this transformation was due to the fact that they had been living surrounded by lava for a very long time).
- Red dragons are the rarest type of chromatic dragon.
