Fire dragon scales
|Name||Fire dragon scales|
|Size to wear||All|
|Time to Wear||5|
|The scales of a fire-breathing dragon. It provides great protection from fire, while rendering its wearer more susceptible to cold.|
Fire dragon scales are a relatively light suit of body armour which provides reasonable physical defense, a bearable encumbrance rating, and excellent fire resistance (rF++). However, they also penalize the wearer with one rank of cold vulnerability.
This item has a 1/3 chance to generate when you slay a fire dragon, like all other dragon scales.
Fire dragon scales are a suitable general-purpose armour: they provide almost as much protection as plate armour, while having an encumbrance rating that will still allow spellcasting. The rF++ they provide is very useful, but it is often best to wait until you have at least one source of cold resistance before wearing these; taking 150% damage from cold attacks can be lethal.
- Before 0.19, this item was known as fire dragon armour. It was obtained from using a scroll of enchant armour on fire dragon hide
- Prior to 0.10, this item was known merely as "dragon armour". It was renamed to avoid confusion with other dragon armours.
