Exclamation Wade's Emporium (Don't make scale armour straight away!!!)

Ok guys, just giving you the heads up I wish I'd received myself.

If you don't make two sets of armour at Wade's, and wait until you've completed a few more main quests/raised your level, you get to buy 2 of the best armors in the game from him. They are:

Name: Felon's Coat
Type: Light Armour
Value 88g 95s 25c
Material: Drakeskin
Requires: 20 Strength
Defense: +9
Armor: 9.00
Fatigue: 2.30%
Effects: +6 Dexterity, +4 Armor, +1 Stamina Regen in Combat, +15 Physical Resistance

Name: Evon the Great's Mail
Type: Heavy Armor
Value: 107g 64s
Material: Dragonbone
Requires: 38 Strength
Armor: 15.63
Fatigue: 18.20
Effects: +2 Health Regen in Combat, +6 Armor, +10% Chance to Dodge Attacks, +2 Stamina Regen in Combat, Chance to Avoid Missile Attacks

So, if you're like me and have already commissioned at least a second set of drakescales to be made, unfortunately you've screwed up this play-through (Thanks Bioware), but if you're anyone else, rejoice! And start saving those pennies.

thanks for the heads up but those armors are not nearly the best in the game. ive seen many that are quite a bit better. TBH, they seem like a bit off a rip; but if i had a bunch of extra cash i would def consider picking it up. Besides, the dragon blood armor is just as good as those and it comes with the game.

Depending on your build, it's arguably one of if not the best rogue armour in the game... Not sure about the warrior though, but that's because I've only played a rogue so far :P

Unfortunately, the devs disagree with you. BioWare themselves say the Dragon Scale Armor is best for Rogue, and in the LE bonus videos advise you to go ahead and get it made.

Niether of those are the best. The drakescale is better for a rogue, and ive come across many heavy armor that was way better.

The Felon's Coat is AMAZING for rogues. And to the person that said the Drakescale armor is better, that is only because the Drakescale armor is better is because you have a full set of it for a cheaper price. The Felon's Coat has no matching gloves or boots so it doesn't give an item set bonus, but as far as bonuses for the armor itself, you can't beat it.

The Other armor the OP mentions is great as well because of it's bonuses, not its actual stats. But other plate armor, (Effort, Juggernaut, Wade's Superior Dragonbone Plate) beats it simply because they are full sets. That armor is kind of a rip off, but the Felon's Coat is the best Rogue armor.
