Dragon equipment is a range of tier-60 equipment available to pay-to-pay players, and is some of the best non-degradeable equipment in Gielinor. With the exception of dragon darts and dragon arrows, Dragon items are made of a hard, dark-red metal called Orikalkum (the former being made of dragon talons). It is believed that Dragon equipment was created by the Necrosyrtes, a faction of an ancient race known as the Dragonkin, and distributed to shops by the Consortium of Extra-Planar Merchandise Transferral Specialists.
Effect on the Economy Edit
Since their initial release, Dragon equipment has had a profound effect on the economy of the game. For a long time, Runite equipment was the best available to players and was highly sought-after for that reason. The introduction of the rarer and significantly-better Dragon items caused Rune to permanently fall in price. Dragon equipment has declined in price over time as higher-level items have become available. Many Dragon items have settled at around their high-alchemy price, however some items, such as the Dragon full helm and the Dragon platebody, have remained valuable due to their rarity, cosmetic appearance, and prestige.
Dragon weapons are weapons requiring level 60 Attack to wield (or level 60 Ranged for several existing ranged weapons or 60 Magic for battlestaves respectively). Each weapon has its own abilities and functions except for Dragon battlestaff, Dragon darts and Dragon knives. Dragon weapons cannot be created by players, and are generally obtained as drops from various high-levelled monsters, though some can be bought from specific stores (and of course from the Grand Exchange or from other players). Many require the completion of a specific quest to be wielded.
