A suit of armour created from the enchanted scales of a once-mighty king of dragons. In his time, titans and lesser dragons struggled with him in vain — but as with all things, even he was eventually cast down and undone. Of his life and deeds, this is all that remains.

Desirability

The scales of the Dragon King are +9 gold dragon scales with +50 MR. While you can get better AC by fully enchanting mundane gold dragon scales, this armour's MR bonus helps makes up for this, and finding the requisite scrolls of enchant armour to actually create a set with superior AC is a substantial and time-consuming investment. Any character that doesn't care much about EV or spellcasting, or is subject to considerable armour limitations (e.g. ogres and trolls), will find this armour incredibly useful.

History

  • Prior to 0.19, this item was called the armour of the Dragon King.

  • This armour's encumbrance rating (along with all gold dragon armour in general) has eased from -27 (prior to 0.14), and -25 (prior to 0.16), to its present rating of -23.
