Black dragon scale mail ( [ )
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.


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[]

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.
