Quicksilver dragon scales
|The scales of a quicksilver dragon. Although it does not provide its wearer with as much protection as the scales of some heavier dragons, it is somewhat lighter and less encumbering. It is excellent at repelling hostile enchantments – and also cannot be enchanted beyond its current form as a result.|
Quicksilver dragon scales are a curious form of body armour which offer very nice physical defenses while leaving the wearer relatively unencumbered. They also grant a single rank of magic resistance, but this mystical defense prevents the armour from being enchanted beyond +0.
