Brutal green dragons are found in the Ancient Cavern. To access the Ancient Cavern, the player needs to start the pyre ship section of Firemaking in Barbarian Training. Brutal green dragons are much stronger relative to the green dragons residing in the Wilderness, and use a melee and a magic attack that both hit into the 800s. Like almost everything else in the Ancient Cavern, these creatures are immune to poison. Brutal green dragons may be part of a Slayer assignment if the player has been assigned green dragons. Visually, the brutal green dragons look very similar to Elvarg as with the green dragons examine text Must be related to Elvarg.

It had been thought that brutal green dragons, like mithril dragons, dropped chewed bones; which are necessary for completing barbarian training or getting a dragon full helm gift from a barbarian spirit. However, brutal green dragons do not drop these bones, only their less-prized "mangled" counterparts (only mithril dragons drop chewed bones).


Like all chromatic dragons, brutal green dragons are weak to Arrows. Players with access to super antifire potions are advised to kill them using bows, such as a crystal bow or better, and Ranged Power armour, such as Armadyl equipment. Low-levelled players may wish to bring an emergency teleport and/or food, such as sharks. Ferocious rings or, if it has been restored by using five bittercap mushrooms, fairy ring code B•J•Q can be used to easily reach the brutal green dragons.

Players who do not have access to super antifire potions should use a demon slayer crossbow or better, antifire potions, and a dragonfire shield (ranged) instead.

The RaptorEdit

Every now and then, The Raptor will show up at the brutal green dragons, and begin wandering around attacking them. This can be useful for speeding up kills, as he can hit extremely hard - up to 10,000 per hit. So long as you hit the dragon at least once, you will get the drop for that kill. Consequently, it can be useful to follow him around as he attacks the dragons (effectively using him as a damage increase), or simply fire one shot at whatever dragon he is fighting before returning to your own. He seems to appear 2-3 times per hour, and will continue fighting for upwards of five minutes. Making good use of the Raptor can increase the rate of gp per hour substantially.

  • Brutal green dragons were buffed with the patch notes of 19 June 2013. The buff gave them increased combat stats. This was because after the Evolution of Combat, green dragons were much more dangerous to kill due to the new mechanics of the Wilderness, and macroers were constantly killing brutal green dragons instead.
