Armour made from the scales of a steam-breathing dragon. Unlike the armour made from the scales of some larger dragons, it does not provide its wearer with much protection, but it is extremely light and supple.

Steam dragon armour is the lightest of the dragon armours, having an encumbrance rating of 0 (the same as a robe). Although rare, you can make a suit of this armour by using a scroll of enchant armour on a steam dragon hide.

Desirability

It does give more AC than a robe, but usually, an armour such as a mottled dragon armour, troll leather armour, or if you can handle the spellcasting and EV hit, a fire dragon armour will be better. Steam resistance is virtually useless, and 5 base AC is not particularly impressive.

History

Like all dragon armour it was replaced by steam dragon scales, the hides removed completely in 0.19.

Steam dragon armour's AC was raised in version 0.10 from 4 to 5.
