The Dragon full helm is a members-only item and a part of the Dragon plate armour set (l) and Dragon plate armour set (sk). To wear a Dragon full helm, one must have at least 60 Defence.

There are two ways to obtain a Dragon full helm besides through trading:

The dragon full helm is the most expensive piece of dragon armour and the second most expensive melee headgear; the first being the Third age full helmet. Many players thought the helm would fall in price a while after its release, but the Dragon full helm, being a very rare drop from Mithril dragons, showed no significant signs of a price drop until the release of PvP worlds. Then, as a result of many dragon full helms coming into the game from PvP worlds, the price dropped significantly, from over 50m in September 2008 to under 10m by May 2009. Then, On 16 June 2009, dragon full helms were removed from the PvP world drop tables. Since then, the price of dragon full helms has risen to around 30m.

Before the release of the Dragon full helm, many players thought that the full helm would never be made, since players had been requesting it in the official forums for such long periods of time, and often these kinds of requests would have resulted in items such as the spinning plate and the toy kite.

As with all Dragon equipment this item cannot be made from raw materials using the smithing skill. The Dragon platebody and the Dragon sq shield can be smithed from their component parts.

  • Shortly after the release of PvP worlds, many players did not believe that Dragon full helms were a drop from other players. Initially, a Jagex moderator denied this, until another Jagex moderator confirmed that Dragon full helms were indeed dropped on PvP worlds. On 16 June 2009, the full helm was removed from the PvP drop table.
  • When Dragon full helms were first released players paid upwards of 1.1 billion - 1.5 billion coins for them, significantly more than a Christmas Cracker at 690 million.
  • When the Dragon full helm first came out, its stats beat the Third age full helmet's original stats by about 2 in each section. Jagex then updated the 3rd age full helmet, which is now slightly stronger than the Dragon full helm.
  • In the 2007 Christmas event, you could make snowmen that wore Dragon full helms.
