So... Desert lizards. These were my favourite long time ago..

Anyhow the bestiary: http://www.tip.it/ru...2-desert-lizard

It says there that they are level 49. And the same creature in front of me is level 63. And I suspect the drop table is missing a few things, but I doubt I'll have time to check that out.

Edit: It seems there are a lot of different leveled lizards here with the same examines. So ignore what I said above.

So far I've seen;
Small lizards: level 21
Desert lizards: level 63, 49, 35
Lizards: level 77

Also it's worth mentioning that to the East of Sophanem there are at least 4 big, level 77 lizards here and I don't see any other levels. This spot is probably the best for those who want the most slayer experience.
I think it should be mentioned in the monsters profile:
http://www.tip.it/ru...view/551-lizard

I suggest correcting the "Habitat" section from the small lizard profile.
First of all it's South-West of the ruins of Uzer, if you go South you skip them. Also I think this is the Kharidian desert, not Shantay.
http://www.tip.it/ru...53-small-lizard

Same problem with the desert lizard, but atleast it has the right desert name:
http://www.tip.it/ru...2-desert-lizard

The lvl 77 lizard also says Shantay desert, posted the link above..

Overall all these lizards count towards to the slayer count from the slayer task. However we seem to be missing a profile from the level 63 & 35 desert lizards. Someone should research them.

http://www.tip.it/ru...2283-cavern-key

I'm not sure if this is important.. But after the quest it's possible to obtain the key from a chest at the end of the experiment monster dungeon of the related quest, beneath the mausoleum. I think this is because after the quest you are no longer able to kill the lady centaurs...?

Also this can't be added to the key ring.

No idea if it has any uses after the quest. I barely remember old fenkestrain. :/

I used low alchemy so this item can be alchemized, however you receive 0 gp.

About the Wilderness Warbands: http://www.tip.it/ru...ss_warbands.htm

This is my first time doing this and was surprised on how simple and easy it was.

Anyhow the wilderness levels are incorrect in the guide. The lowest is in level 10, the Dark Warrior's Fortress. And when I went to the farthest; It was waaay lower than lvl 54. Forgot to write it up. I suspect the Red Dragon Isle location's wildy level is also too high.

If I happen to do this event again I'll edit this post with the other 2 valid Wilderness level areas. And perhaps more.

Also the NPCs combat levels were much lower than what's stated in the guide.

It's also worth mentioning that if you hop worlds before turning in the pillaged items, they vanish. Luckily I only lost 2 items due to this, so wasn't too much of a loss.

I think the whole guide could use a full update incase there's more to be mentioned that I missed.

A really small examine mistake in the great gunkan item's info: http://www.tip.it/ru...22-great-gunkan

Heals* not heal.

Also I'd like to ask if are you guys able to keep up with the pace? I got still so many under progress (almost all the time 30-100 in hold) but I'm sometimes too busy to report them immediately.

For example the alcoholic drinks I mentioned earlier, which I should at some point brew till the end.

It's curious that bane ore's information hasn't been updated: http://www.tip.it/ru.../11672-bane-ore

After the Heroe's Welcome quest you can now mine these from the Brimhaven dungeon where you fought the quest's final boss. There are 15 ore nods to be mined here and these respawn fast so not a problem like runite ore. I'll edit more later if I find something else.

Oh yeah; The area -according to quest journal- is called "Abomination cave". As mentioned before in this same place you can repeat the boss fight for a chance of the abomination cape drop.

The ore can be alchemized. I used low alchemy, but didn't receive any coins. Not sure about high alchemy, but I guess it's the same outcome.

When trying to cast the superheat item in bane ore it says: "You need to cast superheat item on ore." lol. Apparently you must tune it first.

It's also worth mentioning that while the item isn't tradeable; You can still use a Burden of Beast familiar to carry the ore, making it logistically a lot easier to deal with.

When mining bane ore, my ring of wealth sometimes activates, but I've been here for half hour now and haven't obtained a single gem, I even have a fully charged glory amulet with me. I think it's a bug since nothing really happens. Also the effects of the Varrock armour do not apply here, though that was pretty much foreseen.

Edit: OH WAIT! I got 4 gems in a row! I think the game perhaps had a very long delay? Or something? I have no idea. But it's possible to mine gems from bane ore after all. :D

Time for the Purest of essences! http://www.tip.it/ru...08-pure-essence

The examine has changed a bit. Here's it's current version: "An uncharged Rune Stone of extra capability. Used in Runecrafting for training and production."

Also shouldn't the different Runecrafting pouches be also mentioned?

Shouldn't the rune essence also be mentioned there? To clarify their differences.
http://www.tip.it/ru...06-rune-essence

In rune essence pure essence is mentioned. However there's no hyperlink to pure essence, so I suggest making a bridge between those 2.

Would be good to mention where the Varrock armour can ne reclaimed if lost;

1: From Rat Burgiss, South-East of Varrock.
2: From Reldo in the Varrock Palace's library.
3: From Vannaka in Edgeville dungeon.
4: From Vannaka in Edgeville dungeon.

Thanks to my good old buddy Raptor, I'm now spending some nice quality time with these Runite dragons! Beautiful and sometimes too deadly creatures.

I'll be editing this post slowly since I get to kill 50, already killed 30 or around that. So I'll be gathering information and posting it here. Also since I'm part of TMHT I feel this is also my job that has to be done sooner or later. I'll start with the drops then later on with the tactics etc.

100% seems to be 1 un-noted Rune bar & 1 un-noted Rune dragon bones.
In addition I've also always received 1 of the following possible drops;

1 un-noted dragon platelegs.
1 un-noted rune platelegs.
40 runite bolts (unf).
14000 coins.
30 noted magic logs.
2 un-noted cooked rocktails (much appreciated!)
1 un-noted rune kiteshield.
9 noted black dragonhide (not sure how, since these have metallic scales not hides?)
1 un-noted rune chainbody.
2 noted uncut dragonstones.
49 noted molten glass.
52 noted molten glass.
460 noted flax.
8 onyx bolt tips.
3 noted rune bars.
4 noted runite ore.
3 un-noted prayer potion (3) (awesome!)
47 noted teak planks.
1 un-noted loop half of a key.
1 un-noted dragon longsword & a hard clue scroll. -The reason I mention these both at the same time is because this is the first time my ring of wealth did it's magic and I'm not sure if it's because the clue, the sword or both. The last option is that it's a bug but I doubt it.
Just got 1 dragon longsword without the ring trigger and without a clue scroll, so the ring of wealth only affects the clue drop.
It seems to sometimes drop some sort of a journal page to the ground. When I picked it up I received 100 smithing experience and received the following in-game message: "You add the page directly to the journal. (1/10)"
What journal?!? My quest journal?? Edit: Aah I received an item: "Forcae's journal" it's examine is quite fascinating: "How to torture your dragon".

I had an elite, tough son of a dragon. Instead of 40 runite bolts (unf) it dropped 70. Was hoping for something better :/.

Lastly it seems to always drop 4 charms of the same type whenever the hell it feels generous, I'd say it's rare that it doesn't drop charms, but it has happened to me 2 or 3 times.

Oh my f******* Guthix. I got another task of these, this time 68 zzz... These were cool like the first 30 kills, but after that they become so damn boring, not to mention annoying... Damn Raptor.

It's nice when people don't bother collecting loot, they kill the dragons faster than me that it's more than welcome. Guess EoCers are useful for something after all.

The research is not over yet, however I noticed something about the bones information:
http://www.tip.it/ru...ne-dragon-bones

I find it very strange that the Ectofuntus isn't mentioned there. Guess people are too rich or unpatient to care for it, or don't know about it.
Also why is there a link to the rune dragon when we don't even have a profile about it yet?

About the normal dragon bones: http://www.tip.it/ru...83-dragon-bones

It's sad, but the examine has changed. It no longer has the "!" in the end, instead it just has a dull dot -.-.
Also in the "Location" part; I don't think these are dropped from the adamant nor by rune dragons either. Or are they?

Lastly the Ectofuntus isn't mentioned here either lol. Actually it's probably better to check and update all the bones to be honest.

http://www.tip.it/ru...4690-spicy-stew

From the Evil Dave court case reward; It should be mentioned that all 5 spicy stews are neutral. I also believe that you can still add the spices! ;)

http://www.tip.it/ru...court_cases.htm

Was also thinking if we have/should have each spicy stew combination item treated as separate items and creating item information for each combination.

The rune dragons recearch was discontinued, since Raptor is gone and I'm a free man again.


I'll explain shortly the mechanics & the tactics.

The mechanics:

1. At the first stage the dragon's rune scales are so strong that you need dragonbane ammunition to successfully harm the dragon and it's armour. If you don't use them, you deal almost 0 damage. Note that using an antifire potion + the dragonfire shield gives full protection from the dragon's breath on all stages except in stage 2 (more info in stage 2).

http://www.tip.it/ru...ragonbane-bolts
http://www.tip.it/ru...agonbane-arrows

The arrows item info on the "Uses" section should also inform that these also receive bonuses when fighting any types of dragons.
However if you use arrows you should have level 85 herblore to access the super antifire potions:

http://www.tip.it/ru...uper-antifire-4

I think these should also work (?):
http://www.tip.it/ru...htfire-potion-6
http://www.tip.it/ru...rmfire-potion-6

There's a spelling error in the wyrmfire potion's "Uses" section, Skeletal wyvern is misspelt. Also adding a hyperlink to those monsters would be recommended.

2. In the second stage the dragon first shakes of it's broken armour scales & ascends to the air. Once there the fight will continue pretty much the same, except that the dragon can't be attacked with melee and it will use it's special "enhanced"dragonfire breath in addition to the normal version.

The enhanced breath is a blue-ish fire cloud that moves towards the player.
It can not be fully blocked, but it can be avoided by stepping aside fast. However I noticed that the damage from it is barely noticeable and that it's not worth losing an attack opportunity just to save 39 hp in Legacy mode. It's best to simply ignore it and proceed with the fight.

Oh I think I forgot to mention that in all phases the dragon can also occasionally stun the player. The animation shows the dragon firing some sort of icicles (or atleast that's how it looks), which roots/stuns the player, creating icicles beneath the player. You can still eat and drink, but you miss the attack & movement opportunity.

3. At the final phase the dragon descends back to the ground and this time it has had enough with you!

The dragon basically becomes more aggressive, dealing a lot more damage which can kill you in two shots if you're unlucky enough/too slow to react. This is the hardest & most dangerous phase. It's max hit dealt around 600 damage to me in Legacy mode.

Throughout the fight the dragon's melee attack can easily be avoided by keeping away of it's melee range. It seems that only in second phase it didn't use melee attack at me. Guess he couldn't reach me.

Tactics:
-Keep your health as close to it's maximum as possible.
-Using Ranged is the simplest combat style to deal with these and it saves inventory space.*
-Keep your Auto-retaliate active at all times.
-Be careful not to miss-click on another dragon. (I'm guessing using area of effect abilities may be too risky.
-Using melee against it is not suggested.
-Bring a ring of life just in case on your first time.**
-Remember to bring dragonbane ammunition!***

*I used ranged only, since I felt it was the simplest way to deal them. After all you need to use ranged anyway.
** There was this stupid EoC player, who was stronger than me and also too overconfident. Basically what they did was not to bother with the healing or the fact that these are not green dragons they're dealing with. So death smiled upon them and the player was completely taken by surprise when the dragon gave it's deadly kiss. (He even managed to say "wtf" and never came back lol).
***Dragonbane bolts & arrows can't be traded. You must make them from the scratch by yourself.

Bring food, prayer potions etc. Basic monster hunting equipment. And remember the dragonbane ammunition. The rest you'll have to learn the hard way really.

Oh and forgot to mention: The Ritual of the Mahjarrat & The Fate of the Gods quests are required to access the dragons. The world gate to Kethsi -where the Rune Dragons live- is located South of the Eagles' Peak Lodestone, South-West from the Tree Gnome Stronghold.

The lizard: http://www.tip.it/ru...view/551-lizard
Also drops:
-Noted iron ore 1 or 2.
-4 barley seed.
-2 waterskins (3).
-2 waterskins (1).

I was killing them East of Sophanem, as I mentioned earlier there are many types of Desert lizards which require more research. These were similar to the linked lizard monster, same examine, same combat level. Only the drops & location seemed different.

Edit: Please note I only had about 60 of them as a slayer task, it's possible that there are more drops which aren't mentioned in the bestiary nor I happened to receive.

In addition to the stacking bonus experience; If you have an active, -but unfinished Jack of Trades aura- It will count towards the skills required to complete the aura. Unless ofcourse, the player didn't already obtain construction experience before handing the long bone to Barlak in Dorgeshuun.
