Brutal green dragons are found in the Ancient Cavern, and are a much stronger relative to the green dragons in the Wilderness. Access to the brutal green dragons requires partially completing Barbarian Training. The brutal green dragons use a rudimentary Magic attack and a Melee attack both with a max hit of 18. They are immune to poison. Brutal green dragons can be slain as an alternative for a green dragon Slayer assignment.

Unlike other brutal and high-levelled dragons, brutal green dragons do not drop the draconic visage.


Brutal green dragon attacks

The dragon's attacks from afar.

For its combat level, brutal green dragons are fairly weak against Ranged. The dragon can be effectively fought using crossbow ranging, the Protect from Magic prayer and sufficient firebreath protection (e.g. Anti-dragon shield, Antifire potion). Bring prayer potions, antifire potions and ranging potions. The dragons will use Melee if an opponent walks close to them. They do not move to attack with Melee as they rely on their Magic attack and firebreath attack to inflict their significant damage. You do not need an anti dragonfire shield, an anti-fire potion is enough protection for you to take 0 damage.
