Dragon Armor is pretty rare to find. I'm not quite sure the exact places where you can find it but you can create if you have 100 smithing and get the appropriate perk.

Any chest in the game can spawn dragon armor even at low levels without perks in the smithing tree and without starting the main quest line that spawns dragons.
You may also find Daedric armor/weapons.

Yeah it sucks that you can't find dragon armour anywhere and I want it

I've found Dragon armor in chests in the vanilla game where legendary perks don't even exist. It's super-rare though and It was always at high levels.

I'd take dragon armour over dadric any day it's sooooo good

Unless you favor light armor, Daedric armor has a higher armor rating, so forget about Dragon armor.

The best eavy armour is daedric and the best light armour is deathbrand

Sorry dude, no dragon armour unless you get to 100 smithing but ucan get up to 100 easily by buying 50 iron ingots and 50 leather strips and make iron daggers repeat this and you will rank up easily.

all you have to do to get nightigale is do thieves guild missions
Guest said: 11th Dec 2015 | REPORT
Are you kidding me? You will need 100 of everything you just said if you're at level 50 of smithing and if you're smithing is not increased. So enchant items with fortify smithing first with grand soul gems filled with grand souls and then equip them and you will surely rank up fast when you are smithing

You can find the armour in random chests so long as looting it isnt a quest line and something specific isn't in the chest.

Actually, just today I found a piece of Dragon Scale armor, it was in an ancient nord ruin and it wasn't in a chest, it wasn't even in like a lootable thing, it was on the ground. It was found in Geirmund's Hall near Ivarstead

They start to spawn in chests around level 30, they begin to be more common the more you level up, I have a full set of Dragonscale Armour and I'm only level 37.

There a few ways to get dragon armour the walkthrough book I have said that the only way to get it is to forge it at any forge scattered around skyrim however I have seen videos on youtube where people have found it, this is not through cheating on the pc version but genuine use of xbox 360 or ps3 versions of the game hope this helps answer your question

If you love cheats you can easily get armor but true player has to investigate every ruin of skyrim you
Can find any armor but be careful some dwarven ruins are dangerous

Anyone know where I can get these things?

Well every few game days I go to the huge Forsworn camp during the main questline (Alduin's Wall) and near the Hagraven at the first flight of steps (Kill It! Kill It! LOL.) move to it's tent and look in the decorated chest, there should be some awesome loot within it. I found a filled black soul gem and an ebony war axe (Those were the best items) once and I've benn going back there to rack up XP and obtain the newly resticked loot. I think it restocks every other day but I never kept track. I hope it helps you on your search and I apologize if this was to long.
