The draconic visage is a very rare bonus drop from iron, steel, mithril, adamant, rune, frost, celestial and black dragons, and is also dropped by skeletal wyverns, King Black Dragon, and the Queen Black Dragon. All creatures that drop the draconic visage are of formidable combat level. The ring of wealth does not affect the chances of receiving a draconic visage drop.
Players with level 90 Smithing can combine an anti-dragon shield with the visage to create a dragonfire shield, a process that grants 2,000 Smithing experience. If players do not have 90 Smithing, they may use the Assist System, or a smithing boosting item such as dwarven stout (m) to forge the shield. Note that a mature dwarven stout only provides a +2 boost to a player's Smithing level. If unable or unwilling to use the assist system, a dragonfire shield may also be created from a visage and an anti-dragon shield by paying Oziach, an NPC from the Dragon Slayer quest, a sum of 1,250,000 coins. Depending on the prices of both the draconic visage and the dragonfire shield, it may be advisable to sell the draconic visage and buy the completed shield, rather than attempting to smith one.

- The term "draconic visage" stems from draconic, meaning "of or pertaining to dragons" and visage, meaning "face, or image/likeness," thus literally meaning "dragon's face" or "dragon's image."
- The visage was temporarily added to the Barrows rewards chest on 4 January 2012 as a means of celebrating the Barrows graphical rework. It was available as possible chest loot until 11 January 2012 when it was removed as a reward. That week saw a significant crash in both the price of the visage and that of the dragonfire shield.
- When receiving a draconic visage as a drop, it appears in the Adventurer's log as, "After killing a [dragon type] dragon, it dropped a draconic visage". When obtaining the item from the Queen Black Dragon, it appears on the Adventurer's log as "While battling the Queen Black Dragon, I looted a draconic visage."
