+X acid dragon scales (ranges from 0 to +8)
1d3 random properties, with a chance of a negative property as well.

These random properties are selected much like the properties on randart armour, though they are weighted toward being positive, and certain properties have adjusted likelihoods of occurring. The following properties are more likely to appear than average (5% chance of any given property being from this list):


Faerie dragon scales[1] are a randomised artefact found only by killing the Enchantress. Its usefulness is entirely dependent on what the RNG decides to generate.

Don't overlook this armour until you've actually seen its properties. A set of +8 acid dragon scales with rF++, rElec, and Dex+10 is nothing to sneeze at. At the same time, heavy melee brutes will probably find this armour too light to wear.


  • Prior to 0.19, faerie dragon scales were called faerie dragon armour and the item's base type was mottled dragon armour.
