If the player is on a Slayer task for gemstone dragons, however, they may enter the gemstone cavern area without the need for charges; if the player has already donated gems for charges, the charges will not be consumed while on-task.
Dragonstone dragons attack primarily with magic, although they will use both magic and melee if within melee range.
In addition to the typical dragonfire attack, dragonstone dragons will periodically use their special attack, which sends a purple trail to the players initial spot (similar to glacors) which erupts into a 3x3 square, dealing up to 4500 magic damage and draining the timer on any Antifire potions currently in use by 1/2. Protect/deflect from magic will decrease the damage, but will not negate the secondary effect. If standing within melee distance of them, they will not use this special attack.
Players may use the Resonance ability to heal from their special attacks. However, it will reduce the duration of Antifire potions regardless. Therefore, doing so is not recommended unless the timer on your antifire is already very, very low and the healing is badly needed. Similarly, Devotion in combination with Protect from Magic or Deflect Magic may be used to block the attack's damage, but the attack will still reduce the timer of any active Antifire potions.
It is possible to kill Dragonstone dragons with an Aggression potion active and while not paying attention to the possible special attacks rather safely by placing a Dragonstone dragon soul in their own Slayer Dungeon and standing on top of the dragon's spawn point. This makes it likely that the dragon targets the player before it gets out of melee distance, and thus prevents it from using its special attacks.
