The King Black Dragon Lair, containing the King Black Dragon, can be accessed by operating an Artefact located north-west of the Edgeville lodestone. You can also access the lair via a level 42 Wilderness Lava Maze Dungeon (watch out for player killers). Going through the Wilderness will grant you a 10% damage boost for the duration of your stay at the lair.
The dungeon may be accessed via a ladder in a fenced area on the west end of the Lava Maze, containing four Lesser demons. The ladder leads to an area with poison spiders, and a lever which will teleport the character to the King Black Dragon's lair. The lair itself isn't in the Wilderness, but players are in the Wilderness until they pull the lever. If a player gets teleblocked, they can't pull the lever. Players also do not need to leave via ladder, as teleporting can be used to exit the lair.
It is common to use the Wilderness Obelisks located throughout the Wilderness, which will teleport you randomly to other obelisks in various places within by activating them, one of them being in level 58 Wilderness at the Frozen Waste Plateau, and another one being found south of the Lava Maze, which are both right near the KBD lair.
It is worth noting that by using obelisks to traverse the Wilderness, you may be attacked by player killers. This is especially notable at the obelisk near the Rogues' Castle, as the combat level range is great and the Chaos Elemental often wanders near Rogues' Castle (turn Auto Retaliate off to avoid being drawn away from the obelisk).
- The Dragon Riders arrived from their world in this cave.
- Originally, when RuneScape 2 was released, the lair was mapped by the Temple of Ikov. It was later changed due to safe spotting.
