Metalic Dragons

Do these bolts work on metal dragons as well, or only cromatic dragons? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on September 18th, 2011.

They work on metal drags, i maxed with droads 412 on iron dragon but with dragonbane i hit 500+ —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rincewind334 (talk) on October 13th, 2011.

They hit as well on metals as on chromatics - max is 662 in Kuradal's. Page has been edited to reflect this--Invisi 00:56, December 31, 2011 (UTC)

Did you take into account that in Kuradal's dungeon you can hit +40? I'm not even max stats and I hit 670+ against chromatics, where I can't even hit 600 against metals (not in Kuradal's, just to be clear). However, I'm not certain if there has been a recent hidden update on this, which is possible, but before there was definitely a significant damage bonus between the two dragon types. Also is your max hit the same against both dragon types? I'll test this myself soon; I'm quite certain that the damage bonus reacts differently between the dragon types - January 5, 2012

I'll be sure to pay attention next time I get a blues task. Right now I can't say for certain, but I don't think I've hit over 660 on previous blue tasks, or 610 on previous black tasks --Invisi 08:05, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

Required Crossbow

What type of crossbow is required? I would assume Rune or better, but I'd rather not post something unconfimred. -- TechpriestMagos 01:32, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Do these work on skele wyverns?

The Skill Menu doesn't say, but if memory serves, you are correct on say Rune or better.

Although Wyverns are technically a dragon, these creatures are undead. Also, the dragonbane bolts would not be a wise choice down to wyverns having a fantastic ranged defence. Sorry I can't tell you anything better.

Frost Dragons

Initially these did no extra damage against frost dragons. I distinctly remember in the patch notes a few months later saying "dragonbane bolts now work correctly against frost dragons". However, my friend did a test run recently and found they were once again bugged. I intend to test this for myself soon.

I'm pretty sure the current description is wrong. Dpm is quite luck based; the best way to properly test would be to obtain a max hitsplat with both mithril and dragonbane bolts. I'll see if I can do this too. Invisi 01:10, December 31, 2011 (UTC)

Right, after testing I'm pretty sure that they have no effect on frosts. Interestingly, I also discovered during my testing that they have no effect on POH dragons either. --Invisi 08:08, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

GE price?

Nope, these are untradeable :)

Wrong smithing req?

All over this wiki it says 82 smithing to go from bar to unf bolt. However, the actual req is 80. Can someone fix this or either help me fix the pages on which it's mentioned? 21:13, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

Actually the requirement IS 82 to do bolts. 04:46, March 16, 2013 (UTC)

Dragonbane Bolts in EoC

Are they worth it? Is the accuracy boost still there, and is the damage boost still applied to abilities? If so, are these two factors enough to make them superior to royal bolts (against dragons)? CyrithRS (talk) 04:39, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

Ha, that's what I came to this page to find out. I've already got some of the ore, so I'll maybe try it out. Constitution cape Vlastne Quest point cape 23:22, January 17, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry the page doesn't have that information, but perhaps you could update it with your findings if you do try it out? Law rune Samberen Nature rune 23:31, January 17, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, definitely. Since the bolts won't know I'm fighting a dragon when looking at my equipment stats, it'll assumably just show the basic stats when fighting non-dragons, so an objective look at the difference between dragonbane and royal bolts, for example, won't really work.

ava alerter dont work in legacy ?

qbd is my favourite boss and i tried to kill it in every possible way with every gear possible....atm im killing it with full pernix with royal cbow and dragonbane bolts. I found out that using legacy mode, ava alerter actually wont pick up bolts for some reason.... i was going to test it in rs3 mode but i really hate abilities so i didnt... i did few kills with abilities but i didnt pay attention to bolts usage. Anyway i recommend u guys use ring of life because its gonna save u lot of money, because dc-s and armour degradation....anyway pls test ava asap and reply here.

Arhat/Anagami among other dragon things

Which creatures do Dbane really effect? Is it just qbd, kbd, chromatic, and metal or are living Wyvern, Arhat, Anagami and things like that which are technically dragons effected as well. I haven't had the chance to test them yet myself.(LietM (talk) 09:54, May 28, 2017 (UTC)).

Wyvern crossbow/spines

How effective are these compared to wyvern spines? Do they go well with wyvern crossbows? Sunspear (melee)JampoloBlisterwood polearm 01:50, August 21, 2018 (UTC)
