Brutal green dragons are a much stronger relative to the Green Dragons that can be found in the Ancient Cavern. Access to the Brutal Green Dragons requires sufficient levels in 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. The Brutal Green Dragon can be part of a slayer assignment.

Combat strategy

For its combat level, brutal green dragons are fairly weak against range. The dragon can be effectively fought using crossbow ranging, protect from magic prayer and sufficient firebreath protection (anti dragon shield, antifire potion). Bring prayer potions, antifire potions and ranged 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.


The brutal green dragons dominate the lower level of the Ancient Cavern.
