The Abyssal dragon is an extremely deadly dragon that can hit 5,500+ damage on anyone with no dragonbreath protection. The dragon is located in the center of the Abyssal area which may only be acessed after the player kills 50 Abyssal demons in the area (teleporting away will reset the killcount). So before being able to kill the dragon a player must have 85 Slayer. Its dragonfire is black, whereas other dragons have red dragonfire, but the Dark dragonbreath may still be deflected with Dragonfire protection. It can also hit through prayer, so loads of high healing food is required (e.g. Walruses or Whales) and close combat is not advised as the dragon is stronger with its melee attacks and weaker with its range and magic attacks. It is also one of the few monsters to drop Primal ashes which give sufficiently high prayer xp when used, not to mention it also drops Ancient dragon bones. The creature drops several pieces of Abyssal equipment which are each very valuable, not to mention they are all give a 20% attack bonus when fighting Abyssal monsters. Also, this is the only dragon to drop the full Dragonfire shield instead of the Draconic visage piece. As the dragon is half Demon and half Dragon it drops both dragon bones and ashes.
The abyssal dragon's ranged attack smashes through prayer with ease and has a 10% chance to lower all combat stats by 50% of the damage inflicted.
Its magic attack does very low damage, but it has a 15% chance of lowering all of player's combat stats by 20 (including Constitution), and further 5% chance of lowering all of player's combat stats (including Constitution) down to level 10. As such, stat-restoring potions such as super restores, Overloads and Super overloads are highly recommended, if not almost mandatory.
The melee attack doesn't have any special effects, but it inflicts nearly twice as much damage as the range attack. The melee attacks are so strong that they can defeat most players in one hit: as such, it is advised that player fight the abyssal dragon from a distance by using either ranged or magic.
