The revenant dragon is a type of revenant that inhabits the Revenant Caves, which is a PvP-enabled area that is part of the Wilderness. It is entirely possible for other players to attack you whilst fighting the revenants in the dungeon. Do not bring equipment that you are not willing to lose!

Like all revenants, they are susceptible to the effects of the Salve amulet, can restore health when it falls below 50% and react quickly to a player's protection prayers.

An anti-dragon shield or any other equivalent is not needed when fighting these, as they do not use dragonfire. The special effect of dragonstone bolts (e) can occur against a revenant dragon. The dragon hunter crossbow does not have increased accuracy or damage when fighting revenant dragons.

Drops[edit source]

All revenants share the same drop list. The higher the revenant's level, the higher the chance they drop an item alongside the guaranteed drops.

Drop mechanics[edit source]

When a revenant is defeated, three variables are calculated based on the revenant's combat level to determine which drop table to roll:

  • : , rounded down
  • For Revenant dragon, = 200
  • : , rounded down
  • For Revenant dragon, = 205
  • : between 0 and 199 inclusive, with equal chance of rolling all 200 values
    • If is 0, the "good" table is rolled
    • If is 1 to 204 inclusive, the "mediocre" table is rolled
    • If is 205 to 2999 inclusive, coins will be received

Non-guaranteed drops are divided between "good" and "mediocre" drops: "good" includes magic seeds, dragon med helm and all unique drops excluding the bracelet and scroll, while "mediocre" includes the rest. "Good" drops are 204 times rarer than "mediocre".

If the "good" table is rolled, another roll is made to determine which item is dropped. The roll is a value of 0 to 39 inclusive, or 0 to 13 inclusive if skulled, with equal chance of all values. Certain items have a value above 13, meaning they cannot be obtained when skulled while making the remaining items more likely (with the exception of ancient crystals, which become slightly rarer).

Revenant ether quantity is between 1 and inclusive (rounded down), with each value having equal chance.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being a dragon, it is not weak to dragonbane weapons.
  • The revenant dragon is weak to crush attacks, which is unique in the fact that all other dragons are weak to stab attacks.
  • Because of the way the revenant drop table is calculated, revenant dragons are the only type of revenant that doesn't drop coins.
  • On release, the drop rate of magic seeds from revenant dragons was approximately 1 in 11,000.[1]
