Brutal black dragons are slayer monsters requiring level 77 Slayer in order to be damaged and are a tougher version of black dragons. They are found in the Catacombs of Kourend. Players can kill them as an alternative for a black dragon Slayer assignment.

Players can access the dragons by heading towards the Dragon's Den and running past the brutal blue and red dragons, or alternatively, use the hole found in the Lovakengj House to take them there immediately (this requires climbing up the rope from inside the catacombs first).

Like all brutal dragons, they use Melee, Magic and long-range dragonfire. Using both Protect from Magic (with a couple of prayer potions) and an antifire potion will completely protect players from damage, if players don't stand in Melee range.

Due to the brutal black dragon's unique drop table, it is the best way for ironmen to obtain a dragon spear if specifically hunting for one, as the only other way of obtaining one is through the rare drop table, which has a much rarer drop rate. However, many ironmen obtain one on the way to 77 Slayer if using a ring of wealth.

Brutal black dragons also have the best generic drop table out of all of the dragons in-game.

TriviaEdit

  • Brutal black dragons are the only chromatic dragons that are Slayer monsters.
  • The Magic attack projectile of the brutal black dragon resembles Iban Blast.
  • Brutal black dragons are the only monster to have two items from the mega-rare subtable of the rare drop table on their standard drop table (rune and dragon spears).
  • Upon release, brutal black dragons did not have any Slayer requirement and dropped the dragon full helm at the same rate as mithril dragons. Due to player complaints about how profitable they were without any requirements (other than combat) in addition to devaluing a unique mithril dragon drop, an update was added to require players to have 77 Slayer to harm them and removed the dragon full helm from their drop table.
  • Brutal black dragons are the only Slayer monsters in the Catacombs of Kourend that do not have a superior variant.
