Acid dragon scales
|The scales of an acid dragon. Although it does not provide its wearer with as much protection as the armour made from the scales of some larger dragons, it is somewhat lighter and less encumbering. It is also remarkably smooth, letting corrosive slime flow off it like water.|
Acid dragon scales are a fairly lightweight armour and a decent armour choice for stealthy or spellcasting characters, providing decent AC in exchange for a very small encumbrance rating. Wearing these scales grants rCorr.
This item has a 1/3 chance to generate when you slay an acid dragon, like any other dragon scales.
Some players will prefer the extra AC these scales provide, while others may find that a different property (such as that from robe of the Archmagi, troll leather armour, or even just a leather armour of fire resistance) is more useful. Trolls and Ogres may appreciate these as they hold over for a heavier armour to wear. Ultimately, it depends on your play style, how much rCorr matters in the moment, and what other equipment you have found.
