Item Type Body armor

Weight 200s
Danger Level 20
Material Adamantium

Blue dragon scale mail is a somewhat rare type of body armor in ADOM. It has typical stats of (-1, -4) [-1, +10] , though slight variations may sometimes occur. It also grants shock immunity whilst worn, meaning that the PC is safe from corresponding damage sources (monsters breathing lightning, wands of lightning, wands of ball lightning, Lightning Bolt spell and several spells used by monster spellcasters). Active shock immunity will reduce the amount of item destruction caused by corresponding damage sources (but not completely negate it).

Dragon scale mails are special items and thus cannot be generated with magical prefixes or suffixes.


Blue dragon scale mail provides better stats than most body armor in ADOM and is relatively light. It is, however, inferior to dragon scale mail of other colors and high-end eternium gear (in terms of DV/PV). Shock immunity is very useful, especially in several environments featured in ADOM (Blue Dragon Caves and the Air Temple). It should be noted that there are no common items granting shock resistance (unlike rings of fire resistance, rings of cold resistance and rings of acid resistance).

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Blue dragon scale mail can be generated in the same ways as other generic loot.
