Queen Black Dragon help!


Recommended Posts

I need to not defeat the beast but I need to survive to the 4th phase so I can forge my Royal Crossbow together.


I'm finding it extremely difficult to be able inflict damage onto her at my level using ranged. I was using a Crystal Bow with Royal D'hide, Amulet of Fury and Berzerker ring, as well as extreme ranging potions.


My combat levels are:


82 attack, 83 strength, 82 defence, 84 hp, 85 ranged, 85 prayer, 99 magic and 99 summoning. 95 herblore too.


I do not intend to buy any chaotic weapons other than a maul (i have 350k tokens).


I may considering buying expensive weapon to use as a one of then resell afterwards - unless someone is willing to lend their weapon!


I prefer to use magic or range!


Thanks in advance!

Oookkaayyy so,


As you're ranging and not going for speed kills etc, your current gear and stats should suffice. I am presuming you have overloads (I read extreme ranges, so should you not have overloads, take an ext def as well), renewals and super antifires here, judging from your herblore level.


First wave, sit back, two/three squares or right next to the central artefact on the left hand side, as you look at the QBD. Pray range protect and augury. The fire waves throughout the kill will have their gaps in 3 set locations (2 to the left and 1 to the right), one of the gaps is right next to the central artefact on the left hand side. On this stage, she will only attack with 1 fire wall at a time. So by placing yourself to the left, you can easily dodge the wave & hit the artefact.


The same scenario occurs for the second phase, however this time there could be souls and grotworms on the scene. Now, generally speaking it is best to ignore the grotworms, and focus on killing the QBD. On this stage, you can evade souls by running through them to the left, luring the dark ring beneath it, thus damaging it rather than you. The perfect time to do this is as soon as they call out to the QBD (exactly what they say, I cannot recall off the top of my head). As long as you make sure you run THROUGH them at this time, not AWAY, you will be fine. This technique is the same for every stage other than four, which I will explain later.

Note: she fires two fire walls at once this stage.

Keep on hitting her throughout the stage until you can activate the artefact.


For the third stage, head to the other side of the platform, and do much the same as previously. There will be two soul spawns this time, so you can either run east or west to combat the dark rings damaging you. There will be 3 fire waves at once this phase, so watch out. Tag the artefact and head on to the final phase.


Now for the fourth phase, it is likely there will be a few grotworms about, and if you're unlucky, some souls. The souls here will appear in a square around you, diagonally. So to lure them, you will need to run straight through one of them, to lure all FOUR portals into that one. It's likely though that the soul will die before all four have hit, so be prepared and eat up incase.

Now most importantly on the fourth phase, is the super dragonfire. This can wreck you if you're not prepared properly. When you see in the game chat that the QBD is about to use it, eat up to high health, and dash into the centre, brandishing the crossbow. Do NOT move until it has been forged, otherwise you will need to do it again.


I hope those tips can get you to the final phase without the use of too much food, my only worry being that Royal D'hide doesn't have fantastic defence bonuses.

If you still have trouble with range after PvmDG suggestions then I recommend using magic. Staff of light + ancients (blood/ice blitz) + range protect (I hear the magic boosting prayers are broken but you can use them as you wish). If you have Ganodermic armor, wear it, otherwise Ahrim's/Akrisae is fine. This should allow you to kill off souls and worms pretty easy.


However, it still requires a bit of food so war tort (or yak) of sharks is recommended.

Tier 70 weapons aren't optimal for the QBD. Upgrading to t75 (staff of light), t77 (armadyl battlestaff) or t80 (chaotics) would be the biggest upgrade.


Another big thing is to boost your armour and lp boost, royal dragonhide is t65 which is very low, upgrading to Karil's/Ahrim's at t70 would help, ganodermic at t75 if maging, and of course the higher the better. Since you want ranged defence against the QBD mainly, use a melee or all-class helmet/boots/gloves (barrows gloves are great).


@QCK: Definitely agreed on the speed, also very easy since you can avoid specs, but you will likely die after forging :P.

t7 weapon and t6.5 armor on a t8 monster, upgrade your weapons (get a maul or chaotic claws) and use melee and void. Feel free to safe all you want on your way to phase 4 at which point you can just stand directly in front of her safe-ing until she does her super hot breath. Do not forget to brandish your xbow or you will be sad.


Armadyl Drops : 4 Hilts; 3 Chestplates; 2 Chainskirts; 1 Helmet; 1 Buckler; 2 Shard 1; 2 Shard 2; 1 Shard 3

Nex : 1 Zaryte Bow

Kalphite King : 1 Drygore Rapier ; 1 Drygore Longsword : 1 Drygore Offhand Rapier : 1 Drygore Offhand Longsword
