You see a dragon lord.


Dragon Lords are the leaders of the dragons. They are even more powerful than normal dragons that can usually be found in their company. Like normal dragons, they can throw fireballs, spit fire, and heal themselves, but they can also throw great fire bombs.

A really dangerous creature, it's extremely powerful and heals itself. Once, it was the most powerful creature in all of Tibia. These creatures can be skinned with an Obsidian Knife. See also: Red Dragon Leather/Skinning.

Dragon Lords attack their opponents viciously with deadly Fire-Based Attacks. They run in low health.


A common strategy involves a knight blocking while several Paladins and/or Mages stay as far away as possible from the creature while shooting bolts and or runes. Mages can also summon demon skeletons to block the creature as they are not affected by fire. Knights when blocking are advised to stand diagonally to the dragon lord to avoid the fire wave attack; a practice often called dancing with the dragon; although it is no display of affection.
If you are on a non-pvp world, a Knight and a Druid can hunt like this in big spawns (such as Pits of Inferno Dragon Lair):
The knight lures a few DLs, and keeps standing at one spot. The Druid has to stand a certain number of squares away from him, and, using Ice Wave or Strong Ice Wave, hit all the DLs that are attacking the knight, also healing the knight with exura sio. LOTS of experience can be obtained like this in a short time.

Higher level players can solo dragon lords in different ways as set out below.

Knights 60+ can use melee and Exori-spells, healing as required. But it is hard to profit since a great number of Mana Potions would be used.

Mages (recommended Level 45+) can use attacks like Ice Strike or Icicles to kill dragon lords, supported by some Avalanches when they are trying to run away, since they're weak against this element. Alternatively they can summon Demon Skeletons to keep the dragon lord at a distance and shoot runes. Keep in mind that the dragon lord will kill the Demon Skeletons quite fast, so you should be bringing a few healing runes, alternatively summon a new one. For mages below Level 60, it is recommended to use Magic Shield and always stand diagonal.

Paladins (recommended level 55+) can shoot bolts or Ethereal Spears while running to avoid the fire waves and melee attacks. Depending on your level and skill level, it is recommended to bring a decent amount of pots whether you're going to just kill one or hunt them.

A good spot to solo your first Dragon Lord is in a hill of the Yalahar Zoo, there is only one.


Dragon Lords were once the strongest creature in Tibia, and there were only 3 spawns. They used to drop Great Shield very rarely back then. They used to look like this during Updates/Pre-6.0:
