When making a suggestion, please give a full description of the suggestion if possible. Try reading the rules.
Try giving him more constructive criticism, by telling him the details he's missing, so he can actually use your criticism to improve.
Now, as said above, this is vague. I sorta like the idea in general, but it's missing a few details, such as how strong these are, exactly. What percentage of damage does the armor block? How many scales would the dragon drop? How do we craft them?

Minecraft is not medieval-themed!!! As a matter of fact, it doesn't have a set time. And when and WHY did putting reponses in the quote, especially long ones, become a trend in the Suggestions? It's rather inconvenient, mainly since the OP has to gather your quote up manually. Avatar made by Endergirl!
This suggestion limits the use of the armour. Since you can only battle the Ender Dragon once, and you can only obtain a small number of them. Not to mention that the drop rate of these scales are ridiculously low for a boss you can only fight once. Even if you were to re-battle the Ender Dragon, the drop rate is still low and the chance won't bring enough luck the second try. This makes the scales as well as the armour to risky to use, as you would eventually loose the armour or it will break, and you would be left with nothing.
Also, this armour is extremely OP for it's higher defence and durability. If this armour were to have Resistance and Strength combined as well as a few other buffs, then you are pretty much powerful. Mojang has stated they wouldn't make any new armour/tool tier and not ones that are more powerful or as powerful as diamond. Also, this suggestion is vague. You have not provided enough information to make a valid suggestion.
How many scales would the Ender Dragon drop on average? How much durability does the armour have? How much defence for each piece of armour? What kind of buffs would the armour give? etc.
Ok, Raiichi, so you did mention that this was something you're just "thinking along the lines of", which means that you admit to not ironed out all the kinks yet, which is why it is still just an idea, and that is fine by me. I am happy to toy with this idea with you as well, that's why we are here, to share ideas. So let me think for a moment....
What Endergilr said is also true, but only to a point. Let me explain: the practical use of the dragonscale armor would be made mute after killing the dragon..., right? But yes maybe it could be possible to change the rules and find scales in chests (like name tags and saddles), or maybe catching a couple of scales while fishing?? but they would have to be much more rare in order to raise their value to the player. After all, just because you can only defeat the dragon once, doesn't mean that the boss dragon didn't have ancestors that died and left their remains lying around in other places. Hmm... But im all about expanding, not limiting myself to rules and regulations, so people will probably disagree with me on all this, and thats ok. they are free to do so. i respect their views.
And just to make another point about this: I, for one, am a big fan of Dragonscale armor, because i play "Skyrim" as well, but what I've always wanted in Skyrim is the ability to make diamond armor - So in that game I've actually got the opposite problem. The reason i mention skyrim, is because a lot of the time when someone is playing a game like this, or like skyrim, they don't necessarily make armor just for combat reasons, right? a lot of it is about looking the way you want to look. why do you think we have Avatars instead of empty boxes next to our name? When i play skyrim i actually choose the armor that suits my character the best, whether its stronger than another armor is often beside the point. So just because the dragon in Minecraft is dead, doesn't mean you can't look very cool in your dragonscale armor.
To answer the question about density and strength, generally diamonds are the hardest substance known to us human folk. so if you are going to judge it by Earth physics, then diamond armor is still going to be stronger than dragon scale armor, and YET dragons are a mythical creature and therefore the rules of our earth physics can be broken... i suppose. that's also another argument i guess.
But anyway, yeah, the idea has definite merit. And yes again, variety is always good. Give me more shoes.... yay!
I think they need to make the Ender dragon Fight a lot harder. I was able to beat him in 1 minute!!!! It was so easy to defeat him. It is very obvious what you need to do to defeat the Ender dragon. I think they need to make ender dragon aurmor
I think the dragon scale armor should be saved for a general dragon mob, not the Ender Dragon... The point of the Ender Dragon is to have a final boss battle in the End; the dragon wasn't meant to become a mob for getting loot.
I think that diamond armour will always be the most powerful armour. You can't change that.
