Have you ever wanted that shiny new Dragon Platebody, or perhaps the Dragon Scimitar that you see everyone carrying? Dragon items were brought into Runescape at the same time as the Lost City Quest, and the Dragon Longsword and Dragon Dagger were the first items to be released. All Dragon Items, except for Corrupt Dragon items, are members only. All Dragon weapons (including Corrupt Dragon weapons) require 60 attack and all Dragon armor (including Corrupt Dragon armor) requires 60 Defence.

For more information on any of the Dragon items, see the Item Database.

These Gauntlets can be bought from Reggie's shop at Fist of Guthix for 300 tokens. These gauntlets come in two forms: charged and uncharged.

When a player dies while carrying a charged pair of gauntlets (either equipped or in their inventory), the gauntlets become uncharged. You can also uncharge your gauntlets by asking Reggie to uncharge them for you.
