The Armor of the Dragon Lords is crafted from the scales of a great wyrm red dragon and the scales of a great wyrm white dragon. The frontal portion of the breastplate is made from the scales of a legendary remorhaz named Sigodrark. The helm of the armor is shaped like the head of a dragon with wings flaring out from it. The armor is so incredibly supple and light that it feels like a natural extension of the wearer. The armor was crafted for a Dragon Lord of Arkhosia; the rank of Dragon Lord was the highest military rank of Arkhosia's military. The Armor of the Dragon Lords was passed down through the Dragon Lords for four hundred years. With each new wearer, the armor gained more power, which was bestowed by the dragon god Bahamut.

The armor is +6 elderscale. It was last worn by Dragon Lord Dinok'suf of Arkhosia. This general fell at the Battle of Vith Ruus. The armor may still lie somewhere in the crags of Vith Ruus. When forged, the armor was not sentient. After the death of Dinok'suf, it gained awareness, imprisoning his psyche in the armor.
