The Dragon defender is a defender made of dragon metal, and is currently the most powerful defender that players can obtain. It was released on the December 7, 2010, beating the Rune defender. Because of its high Attack and Strength bonuses, it is often used. To equip the defender in the shield slot, the player must have 60 attack and 60 defence.
This is the best off-hand slot item to use in most situations with melee, offering the best accuracy bonuses for the slot as well as only being 1 strength bonus under the highest strength bonus item in the off-hand slot, the Dragonfire shield. The Dragon defender is considered better than the Dragonfire shield due to offering the accuracy bonuses it has. It also is far less costly, as it only takes you time to get, instead of upwards of 10 million coins for the Dragonfire shield.
To equip a Dragon Defender, you must have:
Please note: In order to gain access to the Warriors' Guild, your Attack and Strength levels must add up to 130 or above. Alternatively, if you have 99 Attack or Strength, you can also get in. This is the only exception.
Gaining access to the top floor of the Warriors' Guild requires tokens, which are acquired on the lower floors.
Once inside the room, you need to kill Cyclopes and start getting defenders. The defender is also dropped by the Cyclossus which can only be attacked when weilding a Rune or Dragon defender, but has a higher drop rate of Dragon defenders than a Cyclops.
