The hide of a gold dragon, covered in extremely hard golden scales. In its raw form it does not provide much protection beyond resistance to poison, fire and cold, but with magical means it may be used to make excellent armour.

Gold dragon hide is a heavy armour which can be obtained by butchering a golden dragon corpse. It provides poor physical defense and comes with a heavy encumbrance rating, but also provides a rank of fire, cold, and poison resistance. Enchanting it with scroll of enchant armour turns it into a gold dragon armour, one of the most effective armours in the game for purely physical strength-based characters.

It takes 5 turns to wear or remove a gold dragon hide.
