    I love Plate personally. Dragonscale looks pretty plain and boring.

    i think it depends on what race you play as. My main character is now a badass lone wold but he use to have kharjo (my fav follower) and i thought he looked really good. Despite that i have no perks for light armour have alchemy though) it looked good on my nord

    Both look great on Male and Female characters honestly (my opinion) but I like Dragonscale more than Dragonplate. I just think Dragonplate looks a little bland... of course this is just my opinion, feel free to choose!

    IMHO: The Dragon Plate helmet looks better, but the dragon scale armor looks better overall.

    I hate these threads.

    This is like asking what the best color is, or what brand makes the best clothes. This is an opinionated question and as such will get (many different) opinionated answers. There is not best or worst looking when it comes to armor.

    it`s those bones hanging around the butt that ruin Dragonplate for me .
    otherwise it`s pretty nice for heavy and looks good on Khajiit so I have followers Jzargo and Kharjo wearing it
    the arch-mage robes with dragonscale gauntlets and boots is my favorite outfit using dragon pieces as far as looks are concerned

    yes ! getting a good color/tone match between mixed pieces is my hardest task when designing an outfit especially with the green and brown

    Serana is my favorite model when trying out gear because she will move around and let you see the armor in motion from different angles

    would love to have glass in red or black

    I think Dragonscale looks a lot better. To me the Dragonplate seems like it might be made out of wood or something. I don't know what it is, but the color/texture of the Plate is off-putting. However, I vote neither of the helmets. I think if anything, the Jagged Crown is a much better fit than either of the helmets.

    If the dragons are different colors , why aren`t the scales ?
    white armor from frost dragons , for instance ?
