Pearl dragon scales
|The nacreous scales of a pearl dragon. It grants its wearer resistance from negative energies.|
Unfortunately, these scales are rarely found randomly, and pearl dragons can only be found on the holy Pandemonium floor, Ziggurats and a few special Depths vaults. You can occasionally find them randomly strewn throughout the dungeon floors.
These scales are often considered the ultimate armour for a caster or EV character, providing the same protection as plate armour with an encumbrance rating that won't badly impact Dodging or Spellcasting. Unfortunately, they are far too rare to rely on finding.
- Prior to 0.19, this item was known as pearl dragon armour in-game and was obtained by using a scroll of enchant armour on a pearl dragon hide.
- Prior to 0.10, this armour was impossible to curse by any means. This was changed, the rationale being that pearl dragon armour is created by mutilating a holy creature's corpse, as opposed to being an item blessed by the Shining One.
