Dragon Armor is a Smithing perk that allows you to craft two high-quality Armor types out of dragon parts: Dragonscale light armor and Dragonplate heavy armor. It is the final perk in Smithing's perk tree. Unlocking it requires a Smithing skill of 100; all of the perks in either the light armor or heavy armor branches must also have been unlocked. Unlocking this perk does not allow you to then travel down the other armor branch, e.g., you cannot unlock Glass Smithing, Dragon Armor, and then Daedric Smithing if you don't already have Ebony Smithing.

The Dragon Armor perk also allows you to improve Dragonscale and Dragonplate armor twice as much. This perk applies to both unenchanted versions of the armor and enchanted versions (generic or custom), as long as the Arcane Blacksmith perk has been unlocked.

[edit] Dragonscale Armor

Dragonscale is the best light armor in the game. It appears in leveled lists starting at level 46 (enchanted varieties at level 47). However, even after level 46, Dragonscale armor is twenty times less likely to appear than other armor types. All items can be tempered using 1 sample of Dragon Scales, and having the Dragon Armor perk doubles the quality improvement.

[edit] Dragonplate Armor

Dragonplate is tied with StalhrimDB as the second-best heavy armor in the game, beaten only by the elusive Daedric Armor. It appears in leveled lists starting at level 40 (enchanted varieties at level 41). However, even after level 40, Dragonplate armor is twenty times less likely to appear than other armor types. Either Dragon Scales or Dragon Bone are used to temper the armor:

  • 1 Dragon Bone is needed to temper the cuirass and shield.
  • 1 Dragon Scales is needed to temper the boots, gauntlets and helmet.

Having the Dragon Armor perk doubles the quality improvement.

Although Dragonplate armor has a lower base armor rating than Daedric, the difference in base armor rating is not always significant. A full set of either type of armor can provide a character with an armor rating well past the 567 displayed armor rating needed to achieve the armor cap by applying the right combination of Heavy Armor perks, Fortify Heavy Armor enchantments while wearing the armor, and/or use of Fortify Smithing enchanted gear and potions while improving the armor. At that point, the lighter weight of Dragonplate (79 vs 96) may make it more attractive than Daedric (unless you have the Conditioning perk or The Steed Stone ability, both of which make equipped weight zero). Also, the materials used to make Dragonplate armor are generally available in larger quantities than Daedric Armor. Note that getting the Dragon Armor perk uses the same number of total Smithing perks as the Daedric Armor perk, if you take the left-hand branch of the Smithing tree.

Another benefit of dragonplate armor is if you usually use light armor for yourself, focused on the left side of the Smithing Perk Tree, and want to make some powerful heavy armor for your followers, or do the reverse.

If you are smithing Dragonplate Armor for profit, consider making Dragonplate Cuirasses, and then temper them with a Dragon Bone to increase the value.

[edit] Dragonbone WeaponsDG

Dragonbone Weapons are the highest-quality weapons available in the game, but are only available if the Dawnguard plug-in has been installed. They do not appear in leveled lists, and can only be obtained via crafting or by looting a Keeper. All items except ammunition can be tempered using 1 Dragon Bone, and having the Dragon Armor Smithing perk doubles the quality improvement.
