Dragon arrows are one of the strongest type of arrows. They can only be used with the Dark bow or the level 60 version of the Starfury bow. Dragon arrows were released on 11 June2007 along with the Impetuous Impulsesminigame. The only types of implings that carry the Dragon arrow tips are the Dragon impling and Kingly Impling, which are both rare and hard to catch, requiring at least Hunter levels 83 and 91 respectively. Fletching Dragon arrows requires level 90 Fletching. Fletching a set of 15 dragon arrows yields 225 experience in fletching. Despite their strength, the high cost of dragon arrows makes them unpopular for most things besides PvP or high levelled monsters.
Many players thought that these arrowtips could be acquired by killing dragons, because of the examine option. Furthermore, these and dragon darts are not red in colour and are not precisely dragon items.
If a player is using dragon arrows in a Safe spot, it is recommended that the player uses the Telekinetic Grab spell to retrieve his/her arrows, as the cost of losing one dragon arrow outweighs the cost of casting the spell.
Dragon arrows are usually only used in PvP combat situations.
