Players can get the Dragonscale Armor, making sure their Smithing skill reaches level 100, after which they will need to get the Dragon Armor Perk. After meeting these requirements, players will need to collect the following items:

  • Iron Ingot – Use the smelter to smelt Iron Ores for Iron Ingots.
  • Leather – Use tanning racks to convert animal hides into leather.
  • Leather Strips – Cut leather on tanning racks for leather strips.
  • Dragonscale – Kill dragons and loot their corpses for Dragonscale.

After gathering the necessary items, players can craft the following Dragonscale Armor pieces:

  • Chest Armor – Two Iron Ingots, three Leather Strips, one Leather, and four Dragonscales.
  • Boots – One Iron Ingot, two Leather Strips, one Leather, and two Dragonscales.
  • Gauntlets – One Iron Ingot, two Leather Strips, one Leather, and two Dragonscales.
  • Helmet – Two Iron Ingot, two Leather Strips, and four Dragonscales.

Players with The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Anniversary Edition can get the armor early in the game via the Creation Club. However, the armor is referred to as the Studded Dragonscale Armor instead.

To get the Studded Dragonscale Armor, players will need to complete a simple quest by following these steps:

  1. Head to the Windhelm stables and then to the Candleheath Hall.
  2. Enter the corridor and pick up The Crimson Dirks, v4 book on the right.
  3. Go through the whole book to start the quest Tilted Scales.
  4. Head to the new location on the map requiring players to investigate Yorgrim’s Overlook.
  5. After reaching the location, players must defeat the skeleton warrior and loot its remains to get the overlook key.
  6. Players must now head towards Yorgrim’s Overlook and defeat two skeletons, after which they open the gate and unlock a chest to get the Studded Dragonscale Armor.
