Mithril dragons have a 100% drop of dragon bones and three mithril bars, in addition to dropping very good High Level Alchemy items. While they are fairly difficult to kill due to their high damage output, using Soul Split in addition to good defensive armour can keep you at or near full health while killing them. Mithril dragons are weak to earth spells, although with a chaotic staff and a high Magic level, any type of spell will have 100% accuracy against them. Super antifires are a must -- otherwise using a anti-dragon shield or equivalent will lower your damage too much.
They are located on the upper level of the Ancient Cavern, which requires Barbarian Training to access. The area is multicombat and the dragons are aggressive, so it is very important to make sure only one dragon can attack you at a time. Drink your super antifire, pray Soul Split and possibly Torment, and start attacking one of them with basic abilities, using the thresholds Wild Magic and Asphyxiate when available. Pick up the mithril bars, dragon bones and any other items worth keeping, and repeat. When your inventory and your war tortoise or pack yak are full, use the TokKul-Zo to teleport next to the TzHaar Fight Cave, and bank your loot. Run north to the fairy ring and use the code bjq to return to the Ancient Cavern.
