Druids are a bit lacking on the armor upgrades.

Huh. Apparently they moved hide armor from being the worst armor (period) to being the worst type of medium armor... which makes it the best armor for druids before they get to 11th level and can just ironwood up a breastplate.

Even without the raw number, having gear made from dragons, and the story of how you got it, would hold clout. Does it still have a discount to enchanting to the dragon's element, like 3.5 had? ... I can't remember if that was a footnote in a supplement, though

The only practical benefit (besides being a replacement for iron) is that the armor itself is immune to the element of the dragon type it came from, which doesn't even come up in most circumstances. There might be some non-core stuff in 3.5 that makes it better somehow. It's Pathfinder that gets the 25% discount to adding the elemental protection to the wearer, so it could give him fire resistance for cheaper... which this pyromaniac might appreciate.

That sounds about what I remember. Supplement books in 3.5 had other equipment made from dragon parts. I was fond of dragonfang daggers, myself. Only 1 point of element damage more than regular daggers, but get one that dealt acid damage and it would still bypass hardness. Who needs a lockpick when patience will melt the lock?

It's been a while since I looked up equipment made from dragons, but I know 3.5 had options for pretty much every part of the dragon to make something which would typically be an improvement. Armor is just the most common, and useful

I am sure that dragonhide can be used for all type of armor.

So a druid could have a full plate.
