A player with a dragonfire shield and antifire potions is protected against dragonfire damage.Increases your resistance to dragonfire, although you will still take most of the damage. Does not work for a metal dragon's or the Queen Black Dragon's dragonfire. Also does not stack with other dragonfire protection, contrary to popular belief. This potion offers protection for 6 minutes and can be made by those with 69 herblore using a lantadyme and dragon scale dust on a vial of water. All by itself it does not offer good protection and should not be used as sole protection in battle. If used with an antidragon shield it will offer full protection, this is often done against stronger dragons. This offers protection for 6 minutes, like the Antifire, and can be made with a flask, made of robust glass, and with 6 doses of antifire. If used with an antidragon shield it will offer full protection, this is often done against stronger dragons. A max of 2 doses of antifire can be mixed with caviar to create an anti-fire mix. This is potion's effect is identical to the one above. Also heals the player 200 LP Those with level 85 herblore can combine a 3 dose antifire with a desert phoenix feather to create a super antifire. Super antifire offers full protection against dragonfire, hence no other protection is needed (like the Dragon/anti-fire shields). However, they should mind the 6 minute limit of the potion, and be prepared to drink another dose. This potion is untradeable, and the assist system cannot be used to make it. However, temporary boosts such as Greenman's ale can be used. An anti-dragon shield reduces the damage from dragonfire down to around 30, making it the most used way of protection. This shield can be obtained during the Dragon Slayer quest and thus players must have either begun this quest or purchased on the G.E. in order to increase their chance against a dragon greatly. If used with an antifire (mix) it will offer full protection, this is often done against stronger dragons.
Important: This shield does not provide protection from the icebreath of Skeletal wyverns. Same as the one above, with increased defensive stats and it can be charged with dragonfire. Players can also discharge the shield against monsters or other players to deal dragonfire damage.
Making it requires a draconic visage, an anti-dragon shield and 90 smithing. Alternatively, it can be traded between players. The draconic visage is an extremely rare drop from stronger dragons like frost dragons or metal ones. The visage is not dropped by any chromatic dragons except black dragons, nor are they dropped by bronze dragons. If used with an antifire (mix) it will offer full protection, this is often done against stronger dragons.
The dragonfire shield does provide protection from the icebreath of Skeletal wyverns.
Players can also use dragonfire in combat, but only under one condition. The dragonfire used by players has the same effect as dragonfire used by dragons. Therefore, it can hit very high against players without proper protection.
Dragon bolt special
One way to use dragonfire is by using enchanted dragon bolts in ranged. These bolts have, like other enchanted bolts, a special attack. This special attack enables the wearer to occasionally hit the opponent with a blast of Dragonfire, dealing 400 to 710 damage. The amount of damage dealt is based on the opponent's Defence level.
Just like regular dragonfire, this methods will not cause damage if the opponent is a fire monster or a dragon. In PvP situations, if the opponent is wearing an Anti-dragon shield or under the effects of Antifire potions (or both) the damage is reduced significantly.
Magical fire is not considered as dragonfire. The protection needed for dragonfire doesn't provide protection against fire spells.
After While Guthix Sleeps, players need dragonfire to combine the two parts of the dragonkin key. This can be done by using both parts of the key on a mithril dragon.
Players are able to discharge a blast of dragonfire with the Dragonfire Shield by right clicking the shield. There is also the Dragon breath ability, which is no longer as effective following a hidden updated that reduced the 300% damage to 188%. However, unlike the Dragonfire Shield attack, the ability hits through players that have dragon fire protection.
- The message when you are partially protected from dragonfire is different depending on what kind of protection you have. For example: If you are using an anti-fire shield, it will say "the shield protects you from the heat". If you are using just an antifire potion, it will say "the anti-fire potion protects you from the fiery substance". This implies that dragonfire is made up of several different factors, such as heat, substance and even magic.
