Welcome to the latest update: Rune and Adamant dragons! These two new creatures can be fought in the Lithkren Vault (Monster teleport → Lithkren Vault), they fill the eastern room (Rune) and western room (Adamant). Both dragons have the same mechanics as on OSRS. They are very similar to the Mithril dragons, but they do have special attacks.
To enter the two chambers, you need a certain amount of experience in combat stats (Attack, Defence, Strength, Hitpoints, Range, Magic and Prayer). The requirements are based on the total combined experience in these skills, so even Pure accounts can enter if they have gathered enough experience (for example 400M attack XP, 400M strength XP and 200M ranged XP for the room that requires 1B combat experience).
To enter the Adamant dragon chamber you must have at least 500M total combat experience.
To enter the Rune dragon chamber you must have at least 1B total combat experience.
The Rune Dragons are the stronger of the two, dropping a surplus of Runite bars upon death. They have two special attacks:
Two small electric bolts will be launched around the player's position. These two bolts will home in to the player and deal 4-7 damage per tick for a few seconds. If the player is wearing Insulated boots, this damage will be reduced to 1-2 per tick. This attack can be entirely avoided by running several tiles away from your original position.
The Rune dragon will shoot a ranged attack that can hit through the Protect from Missiles prayers. The dragon will heal itself for 100% of the damage dealt to the player, similar to the Onyx bolts (e) special attack.
The Adamant Dragons are the weaker of the two, but are still very strong creatures. These drop a variety of Adamantite bars and equipment upon death. They have two special attacks:
The dragon will launch a poison attack towards the player's position. When this attack hits the floor, it will split into two more projectiles around the original position in a 5x5 area. These projectiles can hit for 14-25 damage, but can be reduced to 4-8 if you are under the effect of poison protection. This attack can be avoided entirely by moving three squares away from your original position.
The dragon will shoot a ranged attack that can hit through the Protect from Missiles prayers. The dragon will sacrifice 10% of its current hitpoints to deal damage equal to 20% of the player's current hitpoints, similar to the Ruby bolts (e) special attack.
Rewards & Loot
These two new dragons come with a variety of new items and rewards. Asides from the stable amount of Smithing supplies, these contain:
Dropped by both dragons. These limbs can be fletched into the Dragon crossbow, an amazing ranged weapon that requires level 64 Ranged to wield that can fire up to and including dragon bolts. It has a whopping +94 ranged attack bonus, ranked just slightly under the Armadyl crossbow.
Ruined dragon pieces
A few familiar items: Dropped solely by the Rune dragons, the Ruined dragon pieces can be used to assemble a Dragon platebody.
Dropped solely by the Adamant dragons, the Dragon kiteshield is a new shield that requires level 60 defence to wield. It has decent defensive stats.
Dragon kiteshield ornament kit
A very rare drop from the Adamant dragons, the Dragon kiteshield ornament kit can be used to enhance the look of the Dragon kiteshield. This is purely cosmetic and will not impact the equipment bonuses.
- The Shayzien equipment can now be turned into a set at the Item set exchange clerk in Varrock. Hopefully this will save some much-needed bank space.
- Amulet of glory (4) has been removed from the magic store.
- Cosmic runes have been added to the magic store.
- Whenever you poison or venom a player or NPC, the hitsplats will now be shown in bright green instead of dark green. Poison inflicted on a player or NPC by someone else will still show as dark green hitsplats.
- Added the shaking camera effect inside the ToB Pestilent Bloat room.
- Some item requirements were corrected, like the Ghrazi rapier, Zenyte jewelry and Ferocious gloves.
