Antifire detail.png

An antifire potion provides partial immunity to a dragon's breath. When used in conjunction with an anti-dragon shield or dragonfire shield, it will provide complete immunity against dragonfire. Antifire potions are especially useful against metal dragons and the King Black Dragon, though only when combined with an anti-dragon shield or dragonfire shield. It doesn't work when used with Protect from Magic alone. The potion lasts for exactly 6 minutes per dose (24 minutes per 4-dose potion)

It can be made by a player with 69 Herblore by mixing clean lantadyme and then dragon scale dust in a vial of water, which grants 157.5 Herblore experience. Players with at least 85 Herblore can mix a phoenix feather into a 3-dose antifire, turning it into a super antifire potion, which fully protects against dragonfire on its own. At level 90, players can mix a clean arbuck into a 3-dose antifire, with each dose lasting 12 minutes per dose, twice as long as a dose from a super antifire.

Players will get a warning in their chatbox when the potion is about to wear off: "Your resistance to dragonfire is about to run out". Then they will get another message when it has worn off, approximately 15 seconds after the initial warning: "Your resistance to dragonfire has run out". This allows you to keep track of how long you have until you have to drink again.

Players should remember that an antifire potion alone will not fully protect them from dragonfire (players will get a message in their text box stating that they have been horribly burnt by the fire). The potion's protection is so slight that, when used alone, even a single dragon can cause extensive damage to the player from its breath. Only when the potion is combined with the anti-dragon shield or dragonfire shield will players be completely immune to dragonfire.

Drinking an antifire can protect players against the effect of enchanted dragonstone bolts' special effect. Again, players will get a message in their text box stating that they have been burnt/horribly burnt by the fire, although the damage dealt will range only from 100-120 life points.

Flask[edit | edit source]

This potion can be made into an Antifire flask by using at least six doses of it with a Potion flask. Players do not need a specific level to turn potions into flasks.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 28 January 2013 (Update):
    • Anti-fire potions now work on negating some fire breath damage.
  • patch 10 February 2009 (Update):
    • The warning messages and sounds for the antifire potion and summoning familiar despawn warnings are now much clearer.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The guide menu refers to it as the "anti fire-breath" potion, although the potion is named "antifire."
  • Dagannoth Rex used to drop 2-dose vials of this potion. After the kings were reworked and given a new drop table, this is no longer true.
