OSRS Blue Dragon Loadout

Blue dragons are named as the third strongest of the chromatic dragons. They are only behind red dragons and black dragons. Just like any other dragons, this variant can also breath dragonfire, causing up to 50 damage if you are not using the proper protection. Actually, the damage can be reduced with one form of protection. If you want to block all the damage entirely, two forms should be used. Here are the things that can be used to protect from blue dragon:

Damage Reduction:

  • Anti-Dragon Shield or Dragonfire Shield (permanent): This one offers high protection, reducing the dragonfire damage.
  • Antifire Potion (temporary, each dose lasts for 5 minutes, 45 seconds): This one offers temporary protection, reducing the damage with resistance similar to the one mentioned before. Sometimes, the dragon fire might burn you, getting moderate damage.

No Damage Taken:

    • Antifire Potion + Anti-Dragon or Dragonfire Shield: This method will not last long but it saves a decent amount of food considering how long each potion lasts. You are recommended to use it as you are able to use prayer flicking to Protect from Melee, eliminating 100% of damage.
    • Antifire Potion or Anti-Dragon or Dragonfire Shield + Protect from Magic: This one is not recommended because of the high cost of prayer potions. It is actually best for those who have a high prayer level. As an alternative, prayer flicking is an option. However, it makes you sensitive to melee attacks.
    • Super Antifire Potion: Compared to Antifire Potion, this one is more expensive. Even though it is not cheap, it is really effective to 100% protect from dragonfire. It allows the use of a better shield or defender.
