Iridescent Scale is an unique Armor in Pillars of Eternity 2.


The master alchemist Donado Vinzzeti created this suit of gleaming scale armor not as a tool for battle, but as an expression of his craft. Untrained in the arcane art of enchantment, Vinzzeti sought to create a perfect elemental defence using only alchemical techniques. He laboured over every scale, every stitch, and every rivet, distilling protective elemental essence into every component.

The project consumed his every waking hour for nearly a year. The results - while more than satisfactory - never seemed to please the alchemist. His masterpiece was functional but far from perfect. He grew discouraged and eventually discarded the armor, declaring it to be the culmination of his failure at his craft.



Iridescent Scale Location/Acquisition



Iridescent Scale Quality

Players can only upgrade a Unique Armor's Quality to a higher tier level. Upgrading the Quality only affects its Armor Rating by 1 point.










Iridescent Scale Unique Enchantment Upgrades

Enchantments play a vital role in a player's equipment, these Enchantments provide different special effects that can be used as an advantage in battle. Some Unique Armor carries multiple Enchantments that players may equip and some Unique Armor only has one Enchantment. These Enchantments can only be found in Unique Items and can be upgraded if needed.

Players can unlock all of the upgrades listed for a Unique Shield's Enchantment, however, some upgrades replace the current enchantment, and some can be stacked as bonus effects. By doing this, players must have the required ingredients and sufficient Copper Pands (CP) to be able to craft their preferred upgrade.
