Iron Dragons are the third weakest metallic dragons. They are often found alongside Steel dragons. They are weak against stab attacks, magic and ranged attacks.


Brimhaven Dungeon

A large number of iron dragons are found in the Brimhaven Dungeon. 875 coins or Karamja gloves 3 (can be in bank) are needed to get into Brimhaven Dungeon. These dragons are mixed in with the steel dragons also located in the same place. Use of Protect from Melee or Deflect Melee may be necessary to reach these, as they are located past a group of black demons. It can be difficult to complete a iron dragon Slayer assignment here, because of the aggressive steel dragons also found in Brimhaven Dungeon.

Players with 80 Dungeoneering can also use the Brimhaven Dungeon Resource Dungeon, the entrance to which is located on the west side of the iron/steel dragon room. There are a few iron dragons on the east side of the resource dungeon, separated from the steel dragons on the west side, making it easier to solely target irons.


Players who have reached a certain point in The Temple at Senntisten quest can access the ancient Zarosian fortress of Ghorrock, located at the far north-west corner of the Wilderness. Here there are a number of iron dragons around the east and south sides of the outside of the fortress. There are three ways that people seeking to kill iron dragons may reach this location:

  1. Run through the Wilderness to the east side of the fortress and squeeze past the ice block there. This is the most dangerous route, due to player killers.
  2. Take the fairy ring to D-K-S, run north into the snowy hunter area and take the canoe found on the east side of the hunter area (requires [{Tales of the Muspah). Run east and squeeze past the ice block.
  3. Take fairy ring D-K-Q into the Glacor cave, go north to exit the cave and run north across the ritual plateau. Go through the tunnel and over the fallen pillar. This route requires completion of Ritual of the Mahjarrat.

Whichever way players go, they are advised to drink a dose of anti-fire/super anti-fire before squeezing past/climbing over the entrance obstacle, as there is a dragon located just inside each one.

Kuradal's Dungeon

Four iron dragons are located at the very end of Kuradal's Dungeon, in the same room as an equal number of steel dragons, but separate from them. In order to reach them, players must run past hellhounds, greater demons, blue dragons, gargoyles, abyssal demons (non-aggressive), dark beasts and possibly steel dragons. With 86 Agility the dark beasts may be avoided, using a shortcut in the abyssal demon room, but this will take players past the steel dragons instead. At 90 Agility players may avoid all but the hellhounds, using a shortcut between the hellhound room and the iron dragon area. Players may only kill iron dragons here if they have them as a current task assigned by Kuradal.

Player owned houses

Pit iron dragons are available to players with 97 Construction. They can be built in treasure rooms only, and cost 7,500,00 (7.5 million) coins. These iron dragons drop nothing, give no experience, do not count towards Slayer assignments. They can however be used to charge a dragonfire shield. Pit iron dragons have a higher combat level but lower lifepoints than their counterparts in other locations.


Iron dragons can be found on the Furnished floors (18-29). This is the only way that free-to-play players can fight an iron dragon. The combat level and lifepoints of Daemonheim iron dragons varies. Daemonheim iron dragons, like all dragons in Daemonheim, can use magic in addition to their already dangerous melee and dragonfire attacks.


Like all metal dragons, irons will not attempt to move into melee range if combat is initiated outside of that range. In addition to this, all dragonfire damage can be negated using either a super antifire potion or the combination of regular antifire potion plus an anti dragon shield. If fighting these dragons using melee, the use of Protect/Deflect Melee in addition to the previously mentioned protection will completely negate all damage to the player.

These should not be attempted at a low level or without experience. Strategies usually include Ranged because their armour is weak to ranged weapons. Fire spells or a polypore staff are also a great way to kill these. If melee, stab weapons are preferred as they are weak to stab attacks.
