The Dragon axe (also called the dragon battleaxe) is the strongest weapon in RuneScape Classic. Wielding this axe requires level 60 Attack and completion of Hero's Quest. It can be bought from the Heroes' Guild for 200,000 coins or obtained by trading with another player. It has the highest WeaponPower bonus of +75, but it is outclassed by the Dragon sword with a WeaponAim bonus of +71. It is also a one-handed weapon, so you may also equip a shield as well for an additional Armour bonus.
The Dragon axe was introduced along with the Dragon sword and the Heroes' Guild during first release of RuneScape members content, and it has only ever been available to RuneScape members. This axe is made of Dragon metal and cannot be made using the Smithing skill. There are no monsters that drop this weapon. Although it is named an axe, it cannot be used for Woodcut. In RuneScape 2 it was renamed the Dragon battleaxe to better match its attributes.

This weapon is one of the most popular weapons among higher level players in RuneScape Classic. It is favoured by players due to its high WeaponPower and WeaponAim bonuses. It is effective for training, questing, and PKing. Since all weapons hit at the same speed, it is the most effective weapon for players that have the requirements to wield it, and can afford the price.
