Bronze dragons are a type of metal dragon found in the Brimhaven Dungeon and the Chaos Tunnels. While they are the weakest of the metallic dragons, they are still powerful monsters. An anti-dragon/dragonfire shield and/or an antifire potion are essential when fighting them as they can reduce the maximum hit of their dragonfire to below 100, and when used simultaneously block dragonfire damage altogether; super antifire also completely blocks dragonfire. Their appearance has been updated on many occasions, the most recent being 5 July 2010.

LocationsEdit

Chaos TunnelsEdit

In the Chaos tunnels, the earth warriors are aggressive to players of all levels, and if the player has auto-retaliate on, they may cause the waste of a few runes when the player attacks them. Players should note that the earth warriors will not pass through the dragons, and therefore can be escaped by hiding behind your initial quarry.

Visitors to the Chaos Tunnels should also be aware of misfiring portals, which can be both a hindrance and a blessing, as they may teleport the player to dangerous areas housed with aggressive monsters, and generally make the trip longer, or force a player to teleport out should the trip trap them behind rooms of monsters the player is not prepared to deal with, but at the same time might also bring the player closer to their goal

Brimhaven DungeonEdit

The Brimhaven Dungeon is potentially a safer place to fight bronze dragons. If you are fighting them here, you will need 875 coins for the entrance fee, unless you have Karamja gloves 3, which also provide a teleport. The biggest issue for players less than level 101 combat is the interference from the nearby level 50 Wild dogs. It can be useful to bring Bones to Peaches tablets to turn bones from a few dogs into food. After some time the dogs stop being aggressive, so longer sessions at the dragons have fewer such interruptions and make it a lot safer to collect the drops as long as a player stays within a fairly limited area.

StrategyEdit

As with all dragons, protection from their dragonfire is required. An Anti-dragon shield or type of dragonfire shield can be combined with an antifire potion and a one-handed weapon to negate the deadly breath. With 85 herblore, super antifire potions allow the use of offhand or two-handed weapons. Super antifires are a preferred option due to it's high level of dragonfire resistance; no dragonfire resisting shield is needed, allowing two-handed weapons to be used effectively.

Using MagicEdit

Bronze dragons are weak to water spells, although any magic attack will prove effective.

Using MeleeEdit

If melee is preferred, you should use your highest level one-handed weapon(s), in tandem with an anti-dragon shield. Without a specific melee style weakness, use the strongest weapon available to you.

Using RangedEdit

Due to their classification as melee combatants, it is not recommended to use ranged to take down these dragons. If ranged is still preferred, then seek to increase your accuracy with potions and prayers.

DropsEdit

Bronze dragons have drops similar to that of black dragons, although they do NOT drop the draconic visage.

TriviaEdit

  • Bronze dragons have the fewest number of spawns for any metallic dragon. There are only 6 spawns in total; 3 reside in Brimhaven Dungeon, while another 3 reside in the Chaos Tunnels.
  • There is a glitch where the bronze dragon breathes fire while you have a Dragonfire shield and it hits, but it only does 1 damage.
