Storm dragon scales
|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.
It's not the most useful of the dragon scale armours, since most characters who don't mind the heavy spellcasting and EV penalties would probably prefer crystal plate armour or gold dragon scales, while hybrid characters would likely prefer the lighter weight offered by fire, ice, or pearl dragon scales. The latter armours also provide more useful resistances, although if you can get those resistances easily but cannot get rElec easily, then storm dragon scales is a good option in areas such as Zot where electricity damage is commonplace.
Prior to 0.14, its encumbrance rating was -17.
