The scales of a lightning-breathing dragon. It is heavier than most dragon scale armours, and gives its wearer great resistance to lightning discharges.

Storm dragon scales are a heavy suit of armour obtainable by slaying a storm dragon. The scales provide the same protection as plate armour, with a slightly lower encumbrance rating, while also giving electricity resistance.


Storm dragon scales are in a tight position.

  • Plate armour has the same AC. While plate armour has more encumbrance, it is much more common: you can find and enchant one earlier. Also, you're more likely to find an artefact plate armour.
  • For heavy-armour characters, gold dragon scales can be found around the same time. It gives more AC and has 3 resistances instead of one.
  • For others, the encumbrance might be too high. Casters and ranged weapon users will want a lighter set of dragon scales.

However, electricity resistance is moderately rare. For those who cannot get rElec easily, and can afford the encumbrance, a set of storm dragon scales can be a strong option. It is most useful in areas like Zot, where electric damage is commonplace.
