The frst time that i killed both Firkraag and the Shade Dragon i only got shade dragon scales, but not the red dragon scales. The second time i did it i got the red dragon scales but not the shade dragon scales...can you get both?

Yes, I usually get both. They make 2 different kinds of Armor.

The red scales make great armor for a warrior and the shadow scales make great armor for a ranger (and any other studded leather only kits, I guess it's considered studded leather because my ranger could wear it). You can have the armor made by taking the scales to the Dwarven smith in the Docks District. All it requires is the scales, 7500 gold and a day of your time. Good luck..

Mm, weird. When you drop the respective Dragon, they should *always* drop the scales on them ... it doesn't matter in what order you do this. I have had both scales in both my games. Perhaps you didn't look good? I don't know ...

Anyway, Cromwell says it takes a day to make it, but if you check the time BEFORE and AFTER creating the item, you'll see that not even an hour has passed to make it. I don't know if they can advance the game clock with such an event, but if they can, they have obviously forgotten about it. It takes NO time to have them make these items, both in-game, and in RL Image

you didn't, by any chance, disintegrate one of those dragons, did you? That would destroy the scales. And yes, I have both sets of armour as well.
