Skyrim Dragon Armor: Locked to Smithing or available for everyone?

Earlier on we revealed to you a full set of perk abilities that can be unlocked on the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim perk tree, and now we switch our minds to one particular aspect of armor that you’ll unlock as part of the Smithing skill in the game.

It’s no secret that Dragon Armor is in the game as it has been speculated and confirmed by various screenshots weeks ago, but since the perk tree list came out and revealed some more info on the Dragon Armor, we have one talking point to discuss with you.

If you missed our earlier article about the perk tree skills list, we can tell you that getting your Smithing ability to level 100 will unlock Dragon Armor in the game, which will now be the strongest armor in Skyrim, ahead of Daedric which was the strongest gear in Oblivion.

Here’s the Dragon Armor description that you’ll get once you hit level 100 on Smithing: ‘Dragon Armor – Can create Dragon armor at forges, and improve them twice as much’

That sounds awesome obviously, but is there a possibilty that Bethesda has made the strongest armor available in the game, to only those that decide to level up Smithing? It means that for those that choose to level up other skills in the game and are not concerned about Smithing, may miss out on the chance to use it in the game.

There are other factors here to take into account such as whether players will be able to loot Dragon Armor freely, or if it will be exclusive to Smithing masters only, and the strongest armor that you can loot is Daedric. We’re not sure about you, but we kind of like this idea if that is the case. It means that players will be rewarded for spending all of their time and cash on Smithing and it will give them more of an incentive if that is the only way to obtain Dragon Armor.

What are your thoughts on this folks? If you want a lovely image of the Dragon Armor in action, there’s one here which was taken from previous footage of the game. Do you like the idea of the Dragon Armor being locked for Smithing masters only?
