Armour made from the scales of a quicksilver dragon. Although it does not provide its wearer with as much protection as the armour made from the scales of some heavier dragons, it is somewhat lighter and less encumbering. It is excellent at repelling enchantments - and therefore cannot be enchanted beyond its current form.

Quicksilver dragon armour is a curious form of equipment which offers very nice physical defenses while leaving the wearer relatively unencumbered. It also grants a single rank of MR+, but this mystical defense also prevents the armour from being enchanted beyond +0.

You can create your own quicksilver dragon armour by using a scroll of enchant armour on a quicksilver dragon hide.

Desirability

Not being able to enchant your suit of armour may seem like an intimidating handicap, but quicksilver dragon armour is still surprisingly effective defensively. Assuming no Armour skill training, a character in quicksilver dragon armour will have nearly the same AC as a character in fully enchanted mottled dragon armour with a comparable encumbrance rating and much better GDR. Even moderate Armour training will quickly close the AC gap, and it becomes superior soon after. Topped off with a universally useful intrinsic, quicksilver dragon armour is a very nice item to come by.

History

Quicksilver dragon armour will have its armour class reduced to 9 in 0.17. Quicksilver dragon armour was added in 0.16.
