The Dragonbone Mail (Morrowind)

The Dragonbone Mail, or the Dragonbone Cuirass,[1] is thought to be one of the greatest artifacts any collector or hero could own. While many fine pieces of armor have been constructed with real dragon bone, the Dragonbone Mail was enchanted by the first Imperial Battlemage of Tiber Septim, Zurin Arctus, in the early years of the Third Era. It's described as a truly exquisite piece of work, and many have sought to possess it.

The properties of the cuirass allow the wearer to resist fire, and to damage an enemy with a blast of fire. Little is known about the involvement of Zurin Arctus with the enchantment of the cuirass, but an old tale speaks of a debt that he owed to a traveling warrior. Like the warrior, the Dragonbone Mail never stays put for long.[2] The Nerevarine reportedly recovered the cuirass from the ruins of Mudan in Morrowind and sold it to the Mournhold Museum of Artifacts in 3E 427.[3]
