Now that you know the purpose of the armor in God of War Ragnarok, perhaps you should be looking for an optimal armor. An armor that will help you in combat and allow you to unlock more achievements. If you are the type of player who prefers to keep a balance, not leaning toward either defense or offense, then the Dragon Scaled armor will do wonders for you in God of War Ragnarok.

Apart from combats, it will also help you in achieving the Dragon Slayer trophy as this armor is required for that. Due to all these benefits, armor is not easy to come by, and as the description of it says that its creation is unique and there is no one known who has slain enough dragons to craft it. 

Therefore, you will need to kill as many dragons, drakes, and drekis to gather enough materials to craft the Dragon Scaled armor. The pursuit of crafting the armor will begin once you enter Vanaheim. There, you will need to complete the first dragon hunt which is optional. That will happen when you are exploring the areas of The Crater. Once you do that, you will then be eligible for crafting the armor.
