Dragon warhammer detail.png

The dragon warhammer is a warhammer that requires an Attack level of 60 to wield and is currently the strongest warhammer available in Old School RuneScape. It is obtained as a very rare drop from Lizardman shamans.

The dragon warhammer can be used as a substitute for a regular hammer when banging the big door at the entrance of Bandos' Stronghold in the God Wars Dungeon, as well as be used in the Chambers of Xeric to stun Jewelled Crabs and build any storage chest, assuming they have the appropriate amount of mallignum root planks and the Construction level needed to create the chest.

The dragon warhammer is popular for its special attack, as it can drastically reduce the opponent's defence and make them an easier target.

Special attack

A player performing the dragon warhammer's special attack.

The dragon warhammer has a special attack, Smash, which deals 50% more damage, while lowering the target's current Defence level by 30% on a hit other than zero (the hit has to deal damage - even if it is a successful hit but rolls a zero, it does not work).[1] When used against Tekton, it will reduce 5% of his Defence level if it fails to hit. This attack consumes 50% of the player's special attack energy.

Defence level reductions do stack over multiple successful hits; each reduction is calculated from the current temporary level (so follow-up drains reduce fewer levels). Two successful special attacks thus reduce an opponent's Defence by a total of 51%.

The dragon warhammer can be considered a one-handed variant of the Bandos godsword. While its bonuses may not be as high (and all of its attack styles being crush), it can be used with an Avernic or Dragon defender to boost its accuracy rate, and the defence reduction is typically larger if it hits.

The dragon warhammer's special attack does not lower offensive stats even if the opponent's Defence is zero. If planning to drain offensive stats after draining defensive stats, use a Bandos godsword.

Trivia

  • The dragon warhammer's special attack animation and effect is similar to that of the Statius' warhammer released in RuneScape 2.
  • On release, the dragon warhammer was not considered a substitute for accessing Bandos' Stronghold in the God Wars Dungeon. This was changed by an update on 24 March 2016.
