Ignecarus is a giant dragon boss that attacks primarily using dragonfire, far hotter than any other dragon in Runescape, therefore your resistance to fire is the most important aspect of the fight. When killed, it gives 71,820 Hitpoints experience and 68,666 experience in Attack, Strength, and Defence per kill.

Regular potions will be destroyed during the fight by the incredible heat, and as such you need special Heat Resistant Potions.

You can kill Ignecarus using /k name:Ignecarus (Solo) to solo or /k name:Ignecarus (Mass) to start a mass.



Drygore Longsword - 15%

Ignis ring (i) - 10%

TzKal Cape - 6%

Brawler's Hook Necklace - 4%


Protection from dragonfire is paramount to killing Ignecarus. You should aim for dwarven armour (which has a special dragonfire resistance) and a dragonfire shield. Torva can be used as a substitute, but your chance of death will increase from the lack of fire protection.

You have a base death chance of 95%. This is cut in half to 47.5% with full Dwarven armour and furthered reduced to 14.5% with a dragonfire shield.


Ignecarus drops large quantities of metal bars, uncut gems and rune items.

  • Ignis ring: Can be imbued with a Magus scroll from Vasa Magus with 120 Crafting and 105 Magic to create the Ignis Ring (i), requiring 105 Defence to equip.
