Blue dragons are the third strongest of the Link to chromatic dragons chromatic dragons, behind Red dragon.png red dragons and Black dragon.png black dragons. Like all dragons, they can breathe Link to dragonfire dragonfire, which can inflict over 50 damage if proper protections aren't used. Dragonfire can be mitigated by equipping an Item image of %7B%7B%3Aanti-dragon+shield%7D%7D, File:anti-dragon shield.png anti-dragon shield or a Item image of %7B%7B%3Adragonfire+shield%7D%7D, File:dragonfire shield.png dragonfire shield – alongside the usage of an Antifire potion(1).png antifire potion, which will completely negate dragonfire damage. On top of the strong dragonfire breath, they also attack with an accurate slash attack.

Protections from dragonfire

The following methods will provide partial protection:

  • An anti-dragon shield or a dragonfire shield (permanent): offers high protection, reducing dragonfire damage significantly.
  • An antifire potion (temporary): offers partial protection, resulting in damage reduction generally with resistance similar to the shield mentioned above. Occasionally, you may be 'horribly burnt by the dragon fire', receiving moderate damage.

The following methods will provide 100% protection, but each has its own pros and cons:

  • An antifire potion + an anti-dragon or a dragonfire shield: temporary but saves a large amount of Link to food food considering how long each potion lasts. This method is strongly recommended as you can use prayer flicking to Link to Protect from Melee Protect from Melee, ultimately negating 100% of damage.
  • An antifire potion + Protect from Magic: not advised due to the high cost of Prayer potion(1).png prayer potions, this is only recommended for players with a high level Skill icon of Prayer, File:Prayer icon.png Prayer. Alternatively, prayer flicking is an option.


Alternate methods to avoid usage of potions includes the Link to Heroes' Guild Heroes' Guild, which has a blue dragon in a fenced off area that can be safe spotted. If one has partially completed Link to Watchtower Watchtower, there are Link to Safe spot safespots in the Link to Ogre Enclave Ogre Enclave with six dragons that spawn. Link to Taverley Dungeon Taverley Dungeon also has some safespots with the use of the columns and big eggs.
