As with Brutal green dragons, Mithril dragons may also be found in the Ancient Cavern accessible after players have started Barbarian Firemaking training. They have 100% drops of dragon bones and 3 mithril bars, thus making them worth over 4,699 coins per kill. Players should use the correct protection prayer corresponding to their weakness. For example, a player wearing Verac's armour, which is Melee armour, should use Protect from Magic. Additionally, players using Ranged or Magic from afar should have Protect from Missiles on.
Depending on setup, skills and inventory space, players can expect around four dragons' worth of loot a trip before using an Amulet of glory to teleport to Edgeville for banking, going to Edgeville Monastery to restore Prayer points, and heading back to Ancient Cavern via the Games necklace. Alternatively, if players have at least 45 Construction, they can construct an oak altar in their chapel and use House teleport tablets instead to restore Prayer before going back.
