Version 0.31: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.

+9 gold dragon scales

+40 Will


The scales of the Dragon King[1] are +9 gold dragon scales with an extra helping of willpower. Any character that doesn't care much about encumbrance will greatly appreciate this armour.
