Item Type Body armor
Artifact? No
Weight 200s
Danger Level 15
Material Adamantium

Black dragon scale mail is a somewhat rare type of body armor in ADOM. It has typical stats of (-2, -4) [-2, +11], though slight variations may sometimes occur. It also grants acid immunity whilst worn, meaning that the PC cannot be injured by acidic attacks (though this does not cover his/her inventory).

Dragon scale mails do not seem to receive magical prefixes or suffixes.

Desirability[edit source]

Black dragon scale mail is very decent armor, boasting very high PV on par with adamantium plate mail, and immunity to a highly-damaging element for which no guaranteed item grants resistance.

Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]

Black dragon scale mail can be generated in the same ways as other generic loot. Like many other armors, it may be found in a room in Darkforge.
