This guide assumes 20 kills per hour. Your profit per hour may vary depending on your speed.

Killing black dragons gives decent Combat experience as well as steady money in the form of their 100% drops, dragon bones and black dragonhide. It is recommended to use a high-level Ranged weapon to kill these creatures as they are weak to bolts.

One of the best places to kill black dragons is the Evil Chicken's Lair, accessed from Zanaris. This spot is rarely crowded. Players need to use a raw chicken on the shrine in front of it to enter (kill one of the chickens running around the area). It is easy to bank from there by walking to Zanaris bank.

On the other hand, players, especially low levels, can feel free to kill them in Taverley Dungeon, but this is a popular spot. In that case, bring an Antipoison, some food, and Falador teleports. Also, a dusty key is needed, like blue dragons, unless you have level 70 Agility.
