The Dragon Scales (just Dragon Scale in Japan) are an Armor-class piece of armor found in Golden Sun. It is found in a treasure chest in Venus Lighthouse, in a room hidden behind a wall of falling sand. Visually, the Dragon Scales resemble a gold plate mail.
The Dragon Scales feature a high defense rating of 44. It increases the wearer’s Mars and Mercury Resistance by 30. It is bought for 17000 coins while its resale value is 12750 coins.
The Dragon Scales, as an Armor-class item, is wearable by Isaac, Garet, Felix, and Piers. It is one of Golden Sun’s best pieces of bodywear, perhaps outdone by the Storm Gear which has nearly identical characteristics but an additional 30 Jupiter resistance as well, offset by having two less defense. Garet may be the best Adept to wear it while Isaac is better off with the Storm Gear.
In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, bringing a piece of Dragon Skin to Sunshine the Blacksmith in Yallam may net you a Dragon Mail, which has exactly the same traits as the Dragon Scales but has only 15 Resistance to Mars and Mercury. This inferiority may be surprising, but it means that carrying over the Dragon Scales from the first game to the second is a direct bonus of using a full Password Data Transfer between games.
