Dragon axe detail

The dragon axe is the fastest woodcutting axe available, being 5-10% more efficient at getting logs than the rune axe. It is both a weapon (requiring 60 Attack to wield) and a Woodcutting tool (requiring 61 Woodcutting to use).

The dragon axe is obtained as a rare drop from Dagannoth Rex, Dagannoth Prime and Dagannoth Supreme, which inhabit the Waterbirth Island Dungeon. It can also be obtained from a supply crate, which is obtained after earning at least 500 points during the fight against the Wintertodt.

Special attackEdit

Lumber Up

A player performs the dragon axe's special attack, Lumber Up.

The dragon axe has a special attack, Lumber Up, that provides a visible +3 boost to Woodcutting (meaning that from level 72-74 Woodcutting, you can use the special attack to obtain magic logs from a magic tree). This consumes 100% of the player's special attack energy, though it cannot be used without the 60 Attack required to wield the axe.

The special lasts at least 2 minutes, but no more than 3 minutes and decays three times. Using Preserve can increase the duration by 50%.


Smouldering stone

A player uses a smouldering stone to create an infernal axe.

Players can combine a smouldering stone with a dragon axe to create an infernal axe, requires 85 Firemaking (boosts not allowed) to do so. This process cannot be undone.

The infernal axe will grant the player a 1/3 chance to burn logs for Firemaking experience whilst cutting. The infernal axe will be able to burn 5,000 logs before degrading, requiring another smouldering stone or dragon axe to charge it.

  • The dragon axe's special attack, Clobber, formerly lowered your opponent's Defence and Magic by 10%, until it was updated on 27 March 2014 to boost a player's Woodcutting level by 3, much like the dragon pickaxe.
  • As with all dragon equipment, the dragon axe is unique in appearance to its lesser metal counterparts; the dragon axe's blade looks more like a dragon's wing (similar to the dragon halberd's) than a regular axe blade.
