An enchanted suit of armour created from the scales of a rare breed of dragon, now thought to be extinct. This prized relic is now one of the last proofs that the vividly coloured faerie dragons ever existed.

+X acid dragon scales (ranges from 0 to +8)
rCorr
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):

Desirability

Found only by killing the Enchantress, the usefulness of faerie dragon scales is entirely dependent on what the RNG decides to generate. If you should happen to encounter the Enchantress in a given game, don't overlook this armour until you've actually seen what properties it has to offer. A set of +8 acid dragon scales with clarity, rF++, and rElec is nothing to sneeze at.

History

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