Anti-dragon shield detail

The anti-dragon shield is an item used in the Dragon Slayer quest, which can be kept afterwards. It is obtained from Duke Horacio in Lumbridge Castle.

Obtaining an Anti-Dragon shield from Duke Horacio is also a Medium Lumbridge/Draynor Task.

The shield's armour and life point boost is the same as the Bronze Kiteshield. The anti-dragon shield prevents a great amount of damage from the magical fire-breath of dragons. When used in combination with an antifire potion, the wearer does not take any damage from dragon breath until the potion runs out (except for the special attacks by the King Black Dragon and any dragonfire from the Queen Black Dragon).

Players can attach a Clingy mole to this shield, making it an Anti-dragon shield (mole). A Crafting level of 45 is required to do so.

Members who meet the Smithing requirements are able to combine a draconic visage with the anti-dragon shield to make any one of the three forms of the superior dragonfire shield.

Dragon SlayerEdit

In the Dragon Slayer quest, the player will need this shield. If it is not used, Elvarg can hit up to 688 life points. It can be combined with a draconic visage via the Smithing skill or by paying Oziach to be smithed into a dragonfire shield.

Anti-drag shield old

The anti-dragon shield was named the dragonfire shield or "df shield" among many long-time RuneScape players because it was formerly named the dragonfire shield until its name was changed for an unknown reason sometime in the late 2005 or early 2006. It is speculated that the reason for the name change is that Jagex was beginning development of the dragonfire shield, the powerfully modified anti-dragon shield, and hence renamed it to avoid confusion. The "df shield" nickname for the anti-dragon shield mostly died out soon after the release of the dragonfire shield, and the nickname was passed on to the newly released dragonfire shield. It also changed to a stained and clawed look with the armour update. Now, you don't need an anti-dragon shield if you have a super antifire potion, as it eliminates all fire breath from dragons regardless of equipping any shield or not.

DecorationEdit

Players with a Construction level of 47 or more can mount the shield in the Quest Hall of their house by using it, along with three teak planks, on the guild trophy hotspot. This is not very common, as most players decide to put an amulet of glory there instead, for the free transports it grants.
