Dragon chainbody detail.png

The dragon chainbody is the highest tier of chainbody in the game, and one of the rarest pieces of armour second to 3rd age melee equipment. One must have a Defence level of 60 to equip a Dragon chainbody.

It is dropped by the Kalphite Queen, the Thermonuclear smoke devil, and both dust and smoke devils (including their superior variants). The Kalphite Queen has the highest drop rate for the chainbody at a rate of 1/128, followed by the Thermonuclear smoke devil at 1/2,000. Both dust and smoke devils (and superior variants) have the rarest drop rate of them all, at a rate of 1/32,768 as confirmed by Mod Ash during a livestream. Dust devils requires 65 Slayer to harm while smoke devils require 93 Slayer and a task.

It can also be won from the minigame Barbarian Assault if a player gambles their points, although this is not suggested due to its rarity, which is approximately 1/16,000.

Despite its rarity, dragon armour is surpassed in bonuses by many other armour sets, most notably armour from the Barrows brothers. The chainbody's lack of strength bonus also means it is commonly substituted for pieces such as the fighter torso for general training.

As with most dragon armour, players cannot make this item using the Smithing skill.

A dragon chainbody, dragon metal lump and dragon metal shard are required in order to forge a dragon platebody. This process requires 90 Smithing.

A dragon chainbody can be combined with a dragon chainbody ornament kit to make a gold-trimmed dragon chainbody (g). This cosmetic enhancement won't change the stats in any way.
