Lava dragons reside in the Lava Dragon Isle in the Wilderness (between level 36 and 42 Wilderness). Lava dragons attack with Melee, as well as with dragonfire. They are particularly weak to Magic, thus making Fire Bolt a slow but profitable method of killing them.

Lava dragon routes

Reaching the lava dragons.

Lava dragons can be safespotted both inside and outside their isle. The many piles of skeletons and edges at the isle allow for players to safespot them inside. Alternatively, players can camp some of the southern spawns outside the isle, although they should be careful as Vet'ion can walk to their safespot and attack the players. Having 74 Agility and the hard Wilderness Diary completed is recommended when killing them to use the stepping stones to escape the isle, as the area is frequented by player killers.

Bringing a pestle and mortar is optional to grind the scales into shards, in addition to High Level Alchemy runes to alch their common adamant and rune equipment drops. If killing them from outside the isle, Telekinetic Grab will be needed to grab their drops. Although it is possible to stay at the isle indefinitely using this method, it is advisable to bank every 10-20 minutes as the isle is commonly targeted by player killers.

Lava dragons are the only monsters to drop the lava dragon bones, which give 85 Prayer experience when buried. However, burying them on Lava Dragon Isle grants 340 Prayer experience instead.

Although they drop black dragonhide, they do not count as black dragons for a Slayer task.
