|This provides partial protection from dragon-breath attacks.|
The shield's defensive bonuses are roughly akin to that of the iron sq shield, and without any penalties to ranged and magic bonuses. In addition to this, the anti-dragon shield prevents a great amount of damage from dragonfire from harming the player. When used in combination with an antifire potion, the wearer does not take any damage from dragonfire until the potion runs out (except for Elvarg's dragonfire and the special attacks by the King Black Dragon).
Some players obtain multiple shields for the convenience of having them in the bank in case they die and lose one. Others get multiples so that they can sell them for a profit later on. This can still be done after the quest, if there are no shields in your bank or inventory. Duke Horacio does not notice noted anti-dragon shields, so a player may safely carry any shields previously obtained as a note and then obtain more by repeatedly dropping shields and speaking to Duke Horacio.
With level 90 Smithing and a Draconic visage, players can upgrade the shield into the Dragonfire shield. Players who do not have the required Smithing level to make the shield can go to Oziach in Edgeville, who will smith the shield for any player at a cost of 1,250,000 coins. With the new Dragon Slayer II update, players can combine the Skeletal visage with an Anti-dragon shield with a hammer in inventory to get a Dragonfire ward.
