Lava scale detail.png

Lava scales are always dropped by lava dragons at the Lava Dragon Isle located in the Wilderness. They are also dropped uncommonly by brutal black dragons. The shards are an ingredient for extended antifire and extended super antifire potions.

Lava scales themselves have no use, but when ground with a pestle and mortar, players will obtain 3-6 lava scale shards, or 6-9 with the completion of the Hard Wilderness Diary. The amount is random, with high Herblore level yielding a higher average.[1] With 99 Herblore, players almost always receive the maximum amount with a rare chance of getting fewer.

If asking Wesley to grind them, he can only crush one scale to three shards, warning the player of this before proceeding.

Note: If attempting to obtain lava scale shards, Infernal eel fishing is a viable option for players wishing to avoid the wilderness.
