  • Both Light and Heavy Dragonbone Armor can be crafted at level 100 smithing skill with the Dragon smithing perk. Crafting them requires Dragon Bones, Dragon Scales, Ebony Ingots and Leather Strips.
  • Unenchanted Dragonbone Armor and Dragonscale armor can be found as random loot in chests after you reach level 46+ and enchanted versions can be found at level 47+. However the chance of them appearing is twenty times less likly than other armor types.
