The dragon defender is an off-hand defensive item made of dragon metal, and is currently the most powerful defender that players can obtain. It was released on 7th December 2010, beating the rune defender. Like all defenders, it is obtained by killing cyclopes in the Warriors' Guild.

Wielding the dragon defender only requires level-60 Attack and Defence. However, entering the Warriors' Guild requires an Attack and Strength level totalling 130, or level-99 Attack or Strength. Because defenders are not tradeable, the requirements to use them are higher than they appear.

A player wielding a dragon defender


Like all defenders, the dragon defender is dropped by cyclopes on the top floor of the Warriors' Guild. The defenders are dropped in level order from bronze to dragon - to have a chance of getting a dragon defender, the player must present a rune defender to Kamfreena at the entrance to the cyclopes pen.

When wielding a rune or dragon defender, the player may encounter a cyclossus. This creature is tougher than a normal cyclops, but has a higher chance of dropping a dragon defender. All cyclopes have a higher chance of dropping defenders if the player opts to spend all their Warriors' Guild tokens at once.
