Scalemail is an Armor item from the Reign of Giants DLC, crafted in the Fight tab. It requires 1 Scales, 1 Log Suit, and 3 Pig Skin to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype.

It has 1350 durability and absorbs 70% of physical damage. When worn, the player is immune to fire damage, and enemies attacking the player will catch on fire. It also restores Sanity by 3.3/min.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Wearing the Scalemail to regain Sanity will not decrease its durability unlike Dress items, allowing infinite Sanity regeneration as long as the wearer stays out of a combat-heavy situation.
  • Its fire immunity makes it ideal for fighting the Dragonfly, making the second encounter with the giant much easier than the first.
  • Care should be taken when fighting regular Mobs. When they are set on fire by the armor, they can spread fire to nearby Structures and plants, possibly harming the player's resources.
  • As this is difficult to obtain and cannot be repaired, one should always wear a Football Helmet or better head armor with it in combat, so as to avoid it losing too much durability. Also, the head armor should be equipped last. This will cause the head armor to take most of the damage, with the armor taking much less.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • With the introduction of the Scalemail, Willow is no longer the only character that can be immune to fire damage.
  • The Scalemail used to have the same stats as the Thulecite Suit and wasn't able to set Mobs on fire.
