The profit rate assumes 225 kills per hour. Your actual profit may be higher or lower depending on your speed.
Also: Frost dragons CAN be effectively killed with ranged combat. However, either a royal crossbow or higher tier range weapon is required, with dragonbane bolts as a NECESSITY in order to achieve maximum accuracy.
Frost dragons are commonly killed for their 100% drop of frost dragon bones, worth 12,567 coins each. 85 Dungeoneering is required to access the resource dungeon in which these dragons reside. Using Soul Split, a pack yak familiar, and high level weapons, it is possible to get upwards of 225 kills per hour, banking as needed. Although Winter Storage may be used to bank up to 150 bones per hour remotely, this method does not account for this ability.
(Note about banking with winter storage: It is readily possible to reach upwards of 240 kills per hour, even if one banks with winter storage. 2 summoning flasks(6) are required for this method. Bank using winter storage as required, and drink doses of summoning potion as needed. Once out of potion, store bones in the pack yak, and inventory, and one can sustain a 36 minute trip (1 flask of super anti-fire or regular anti-fire potion's duration) in this manner without having to bank.)
Frost dragons do drop other noted items, such as noted herbs, ammo and equipment. However, it is best not to pick up items worth less then their bones, as it will reduce profit rates. Items that should be picked up should be either lantadymes/dwarf weed, water talismans and rune longswords and rune arrows, provided that the player is not ranging the dragons.
The main danger frost dragons pose is their ability to recoil damage. After the dragon has been engaged in combat for a random period of time, a blue orb will begin to circle the dragon. When this orb is active, any damage that would have been dealt to the dragon will instead be reflected back to the one fighting the dragon. If using abilities such as Sever, Assault, and Destroy, the frost dragon will most likely not be able to activate the orb before being killed. Food is not required, as Soul Split, Regenerate, Sacrifice, and Guthix's Blessing may be used to heal. However, it's recommended to bring about 3 rocktails in case of an emergency heal. When finished with a trip, banking may be done via the TokKul-Zo, selecting the TzHaar Fight Cave option in order to gain proximity to a bank and fairy ring.
If The Brink of Extinction has been completed you could select the Fight Cauldron option and burn yourself in the lava there to quickly restore your prayer and life points.
Once banking and resupplying has been done, use the fairy ring near the Fight Cave and code A•I•Q will bring the player to Mudskipper Point, a few steps south of the entrance to the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon. Players may also use the Port Sarim lodestone and run south to the dungeon. If a Hoardstalker ring is available, it can provide teleports straight to the entrance of the resource dungeon, drastically minimizing the downtime to a mere few seconds when used in conjunction with the Tokkul-Zo.
