Dragon Scale Armor is a quest that enables the Warden to turn a dragon scale into something special.


A dragon scale can be found on a High dragon found at the Mountain Top (the Mountain Top is first accessible during the quest for the Urn of Sacred Ashes). Slay the High dragon and you will find a dragon scale on its corpse. Bring the Scale to Wade at the forge in his shop: Wade's Emporium in Denerim Market District.
