Frost dragons are located in the Asgarnian Ice Resource Dungeon, which requires at least level 85 Dungeoneering to enter. Frost dragons are highly sought after for their Frost dragon bones which are a 100% drop and are the most expensive bones in-game, making them a highly profitable kill. In addition to their bones, they can also drop the elusive Draconic visage. Frost dragons are weak to stab attacks like all other dragons and can attack with all three attack styles and dragonfire, but they use only two styles of attack including melee. For example, one Frost dragon might use only melee and ranged combat, and another might use melee and magic.

Location and Requirements

A dozen Frost dragons inhabit the resource dungeon in the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon, south of Falador. Again, 85 Dungeoneering is required to enter the area! Since these are dragons, some sort of dragonfire protection is needed. The fastest route to the dungeon is having your house in Rimmington and teleporting to it or creating and using a Rimmington tablet after Love Story is completed. Alternatives include the Explorer's ring teleport to the Falador cabbage patch and then running south to the dungeon or using Fairy ring code AIQ to go to Mudskipper Point and banking at Edgeville via charged Amulet of Glory.

Killing a Frost Dragon

Frost dragons attack with melee and dragonfire, as well as either ranged or magic. If a dragon uses range, it will use it's ranged attack throughout the whole fight, making it unnecessary to use the Protect/Deflect from Magic prayers, and vice versa. It is advised to use a melee setup with a stab weapon. Full Guthan's armour can help with healing and a Chaotic Rapier is highly accurate and powerful against these dragons; a Chaotic spear is also a good choice although it is a two-handed weapon; both of these weapons exploit the Frost dragons' weakness to stab attacks. Protect/Deflect from either Missiles or Magic is highly recommended! (Protect from Magic/Deflect Magic also helps to protect against the Frost dragons' fire breath attack)

It is also highly advised to make use of Piety/Turmoil or Rigour/Anguish as well as the Protect item prayer/curse while at Frost dragons however this is optional. Soul Split can be used to heal during combos and binds/stuns but only if you are fast enough to kill a dragon before it uses the blue orb to deflect damage.

Randomly throughout the fight (usually after 15-20 seconds), the Frost dragon will create a blue orb to protect itself. Any damage done to the frost dragon while this orb is circling it is rebounded 100%. The orb will disappear after three cycles around the frost dragon. Do not attack the dragon when the orb appears! It is highly recommended to turn auto-retaliate off and to not use any bleeds so accidental damage is not done during the orb's presence.

Tip:Frost dragons have different attack styles if your observant enough it is possible to know how they will attack you. When a familiar is summoned you have the special effects of when a creature appears. If the frost dragon appears with the summoning effects, it will hit you with magic. However, if it just appears then it will strike you with range.

In the case of a death, a gravestone will appear just outside of the resource dungeon entrance. If you are using a Beast of Burden when you die, and there is no one else in the dungeon, all items your familiar was carrying will automatically disappear.

Suggested Gear

For Warriors:

For Rangers:

Oddly, these dragons aren't vulnerable to any Dragonbane ammo unlike other dragons! Although it is not recommended to use Magic against Frost Dragons, using Storm of Armadyl along with a Staff of Armadyl can slay these dragons quite fast. Casting this spell, however, can be very costly and cut into profits.



A single trip killing frost dragons can yield a profit of anywhere from 300,000 gp to much more. One can easily average 140 kills hourly! The better the gear and familiar, the better the profits. The expenses are minimal, so there is not much to lose.

Familiars should be utilized, especially Beasts of Burden. A War tortoise can hold an additional 18 items, and the Pack Yak whilst not only able to carry 30 items, the Winter Storage special scroll enables easy banking of Frost Dragon Bones and the occasional Rune Longsword drops.

Note: There is a small chance you will receive 1337 coins as a drop from the dragon. Should you acquire these, it is recommended you congratulate yourself on your elite skills.
