Special Ability:

  • The primary feature of the Dragonfire Shield is its special ability to reduce and mitigate dragonfire attacks. When charged, the shield provides three possible levels of protection:
    • Protect from Dragonfire: When using the shield’s special attack, you are protected from dragonfire attacks for one hit.
    • Protect from Dragon Breath: Using the special attack again provides protection from dragon breath attacks for one hit.
    • Superheat Item: You can also use the shield’s special attack to superheat ores.

Charging the Dragonfire Shield:

  • The Dragonfire Shield must be charged with the Draconic visage to enable its dragonfire protection abilities. The Draconic visage is an extremely rare drop from high-level dragons such as the King Black Dragon and the Kalphite Queen. After attaching the visage to the shield, it becomes charged.


To wield the Dragonfire Shield, you need a Defense level of 75.


  • The Dragonfire Shield is especially valuable for combat against dragons, including the King Black Dragon, the Queen Black Dragon, metal dragons, brutal green dragons, and other dragon-type creatures. It provides excellent protection against their dragonfire attacks.
  • It’s also sought after for use in the fight against the Wintertodt in the Wintertodt boss fight, where dragonfire attacks can be deadly without the shield’s protection.

The Dragonfire Shield is a prized item in OSRS due to its unique dragonfire protection ability, which makes it an essential piece of equipment for various dragon-slaying activities.
