What is the Dragonfire Shield?

The Dragonfire Shield, a testament to the prowess of its wielder, stands as an upgraded anti-dragon shield, ranking among the finest shields in the game. Requiring 75 Defence and the initiation of Dragon Slayer I, it not only preserves the dragonfire protection of its predecessor but extends its capabilities to combat the icy breath of wyverns.

Where Can I Obtain the Dragonfire Shield?

Embark on your mission by starting Dragon Slayer I and, upon reaching 75 Defense, the path opens to acquire Dragonfire Shield, this can be created by combining an Anti-dragon shield and a Draconic visage on an Anvil. This will become an invaluable ally against the fiery fury of the dragons and the icy attack of the wyverns.
