While the Armor value of Dragons grows with each adventure level it gains, as well as by consuming many hoard items. Dragons can also wear scales on top of their skin to gain more armor. While not a complete equivalent to Biped armor it does serve a similar function.

Basic info[edit]

All scales provide a base amount of defensive Armor. In addition to this base armor, scales can come in 6 statistic-boosting "flavors". For formulas and available items, please read the subcategories.

Scale slots[edit]

A dragon gains 10 scale slots and 1 claw slot. On the beginning of your adventures as a Dragon, you can only wear a scale on your chest. More slots will unlock as abilities at certain levels. Please refer to the abilities table on either of the dragon school's detail pages.

Equipping info[edit]

When equipping scales, the player's currently active two schools are looked at. It does not matter if your Dragon Crafter school is higher then Dragon Adventurer, this makes it possible to gain acces to a full set of Tier 5 scales by reaching lvl 90 Dragon Crafter (You can wear Tier 5 from lvl 80, but don't get the Tail Slot until you reach lvl 90). This might create problems when switching to a lower level school like Dragon Lairshaper. So it might be advisable to keep both active schools close together.

Crafting info[edit]

Scales are crafted at Dragon Scale Forges or Anvils, with the use of the Dragon Scalecraft ability. Depending on the statistical "flavor" of the scale, it can require Bricks or Bars of the appropriate tier. Strength and Power scales require bricks, Dexterity and Focus require bars, and Armor and Health require half of each.

Unlike Spells, applying techniques to a scale while crafting it increases the skill required by the tier of the technique * 10. It has no effect of the equipping requirements of the scale.
