Whats the point of doing quests to unlock dragon equipment if its now worthless? NOTHING

My suggestion is to make dragon equipment upgradeable all the way up to tier 10 yep you heard it here folks tier 10, lvl 99 son.

Firstly I suggest a quest to make each stage unlockable, so a 5 part quest part one making regular dragon smithable then a part for each tier up.

Raw dragon metal would take several pieces of dragon equipment to make bc as a human metal is lost in the creation process and the process is entireably failable, the system would take 3 pieces of equipment to make 1 bar with total failure possible at every step and reduced failure rate as smithing and runecrafting lvls increase, from the magic imbuing in making dragon equipment.

Each tier would degrade to the previous tier with decreasing use as tiers increase and it becomes more "unstable", my recommendation for tier 10 is a mere 30 min of use, making it very powerful but also very very costly to make.

This would be balanced with a small addition, there is already a dragon staff which would be jsut as upgradeable as regular dragon weapons, the addition of a bow would complete the balancing. I also think this would bring good balancing to the overall game as there is a lack of quality tier 8 and 9 equipment that is somewhat accessible for people who dont do high lvl bossing, have tons of money or do POP while still being difficult to attain.


I would love some feedback from ppl who know the lore, bc i dont, and if theres anything that could be added to make this more lore-friendly i would love ot hear it

They could do what they did with rune and make a stronger variant. Elder Dragon? I like how they chosen Elder rune instead of the that new armor. Bringing Rs back to its roots is good imo.

Yea! what would you think if each tier had a different name? liek maybe tier 9 is elite dragon the top is supreme dragon tier 8 mb sth like "ferocious" dragon idk?

I agree with you about bringing rs back to its roots, itd be cool to not have to do crazy bossing all day to get the best weapon and armour but be able to finish quests core to the game and upgrade it to something comparable. I remember getting my first dragon weapons back when godswords were still the top and I could finally compete to a degree with my dragon scimmy vs my old rune one, its sad to see content i worked hard for obsoleted so easily.

Do you like the idea of a quest to make the dragon upgradeable?

hmm.... I think that's a great idea if something like this were to be released. The quest could perhaps open a whole new series of possible events? I could see our characters researching the true dragon armor that came from Kethsi and that was used by the Mahjarrat by speaking or journeying along with a fellow Dragonkin? This could see the release of the Elder Dragon (Dragon Dragon) the first metal dragon created which could be a new boss that drops something for the armor. I say this is definitely an idea worth exploring.

First thought I had was those Wilderness Hilts from Bounty Hunter which upgrade 1h dragon weapons to T70.

Obviously T70 is still irrelevant for 90% of players, especially since you can't augment them.

I like Dragon gear, aesthetically and nostalgically. I remember when Dragon Chainbody was the rarest drop in the game (that I was aware of, anyway). However it would seem that Jagex has been "leaving the past behind, killing it, if they have to" in many of their changes.

I wouldn't mind seeing "dragon" equipment, i.e. red stuff with spikes and special attacks, be strong and worth using again, but I have my doubts that it's the direction Jagex intends the game to go.

Props on the "Elder Dragon" name though, sounds dope.

I don't know about T99, that's jumping quite far ahead.

Perhaps dragon weapons could be upgraded through the smithing skill, using elder rune bars, and other weapons, to create Masterwork weapons, or "Elder dragon" weapons, as mentioned. Eg dragon 1h melee weapon + (any) drygore weapon + T92 khopesh + _ elder rune bars = T95 Elite masterwork longsword/Elder dragon longsword/Masterwork dragon longsword. Etc.

I don't think that this will or should be made in a long while though. We have pretty recently been given T92 and I think that those should have a decent amount of time as BIS.

I think that completing certain quests could award the ability to upgrade all dragon gear to T90

Unsure of the method. Maybe... after the quests unlock the ability, you can use existing T90s with said dragon item?

Dragon longsword + Drygore longsword = Dragongore longsword? Dragonlore longsword?
Visually looks like a combination of the two. Has the same stats as T90, degrades the same, but it has the dragon special attack as a T90. Same goes for all dragon items.
