An antifire potion provides slight immunity to a dragon's breath (50% damage reduction, to be precise). When used in conjunction with an anti-dragon shield or dragonfire shield, will provide complete immunity against dragonfire for exactly 6 minutes per dose (24 minutes per 4-dose potion). Antifire potions are especially useful against metal dragons and the King Black Dragon, though only when combined with other said forms of protection.
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 by its own.
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.
WARNING! 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 lifepoints.

- There is currently a glitch with the antifire potion. When you log out with the antifire effect nearly ending and log back in, the message "your resistance to dragonfire is about to run out" will be displayed in a white colour, instead of a darkish crimson.
- Despite giving partial protection from dragonfire, it is, although uncommon, possible to take no damage from a dragon's dragonbreath even without other protection.
- The guide menu refers to it as the "anti fire-breath" potion, although the potion is named "antifire."
