Black Dragons (also known as Black Drag) are fierce monsters in Soulsplit, gaining their reputation because of their high combat level of 227. They are the only chromatic dragon to drop the rare draconic visage.

It is recommended you bring an Anti-dragon shield or a Dragonfire shield, as this will reduce the Black dragon's max hit with Dragonfire to around 5 (50). For extra use, bring Antifire potions; these will negate the dragonfire attack. Without any sort of resistence from a shield or potion, the max hit from one of these dragon can reach the upper 40s (400s), which can kill you in one or two hits. An alternative is to pray "Protect/Deflect Magic". It's also recommended using protection prayers (preferably Protect from Melee) with either of the two shields equipped.

When fighting this dragon, it is recommended to bring along a Bonecrusher from the Dungeoneering Shop. Using this item will not only give painless, quick, on-site prayer experience equivalent to using bones on an altar, but it will also leave inventory spaces open for rare drops.

As a slayer task, Black dragons give an extraordinary amount of experience points.

Getting To Black DragonsRectify

File:Taverley Dungeon.png
When using your "Dungeon Teleport", and selecting Taverley dungeon, you will arrive at the beginning of the dungeon. Make your way through the dungeon until you get to the Blue dragon lair, then run past the lair and you will come to a lonely Chaos dwarf and a lonely Blue dragon. Keep running west which will lead you to the Black demons, When you enter their cavern, head your way up Northwest, leading to a corridor. Continue to move Northwest and will come up to the Black dragons.

If you acquire 80 Agility, then you can use the agility pipe short cut to get to the Black Dragon Lair.
