Dragonplate Armor is a heavy armor set found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Starting around level 50, Dragonplate Armor pieces can be found, very rarely, as random loot from chests and containers. Armor pieces can be found at lower levels if the Dragon Armor perk is acquired before reaching level 50.

Although it is quite rare, pieces of the set can be found as early as level 24, even without the aforementioned perk.


Dragonplate Armor can be forged from Dragon bones and Dragon scales. The Dragon Armor perk must be acquired before this armor type can be crafted. The perk requires a Smithing level of 100.

The materials for crafting Dragonplate Armor are much more common than the materials needed for its Daedric competitor.

Versus DaedricEdit

Daedric armor has a higher armor rating than Dragonplate armor at its base value and retains its higher rating, even when both armors have been upgraded to Legendary status (but just by a small margin). However, with its lower weight, Dragonplate Armor is the more suitable choice when lacking proper Heavy Armor perks.

  •  PC   360   PS3  When worn by bestial races, such as Khajiit or Argonians, their cranial features and tails might disappear or function abnormally.
  •  360   The Dragonplate Helmet will clip into the forehead, showing the hair on the top of the head. Even having no hair (i.e. shaved), and wearing the helmet still causes this bug to occur.
