You need 3 drake scales for the first set, and another 3 for the second set. Pretty sure you should have about 7 after doing the Sacred Ashes quest, but if you need more I got my first three from the mage's tower, after escaping the Fade. --- Say, can you hear that? It's the sound of the Reaper...
You get the Drake Scale Piece from the High Dragon but Wade can not do anything with it until you collect smaller Drake Scales from the Drakes in the Wyrm lair just before the mountain top.
All drakes drop one scale when they die (don't let bugged dropping stop you. Save and reload to get the lootable corpse if you need to). You need 3 scales for him to do something with them. As far as I know, only 6 Drakes exist in the entire game.

The High Dragon drops a Dragon Scale, not a Drake Scale. And I had 4 Drake Scales left over by the time I got both sets of Drake Scale armor. I think there are 6 Drakes during the sacred ashes quest, 1 Drake in the mage's tower, 2 Drake Scales in a chest in the mage's tower, and 1 Drake in a random world-map encounter. --- Say, can you hear that?

go through every nook and cranny of the ruins in the urn of sacred ashes. there should 6 drakes there giving 1 drake scale each. and the high dragon will give one dragon scale. wade will craft to make what i think is the best non dlc armor.
I stand corrected then but the general question was answered. Never really knew a Drake appeared as a random encounter but I guess it shouldn't be that surprising. Finding some in the Mage tower is news to me so maybe I'll have to take another look around there. --- ------------ "We all have photographic memory, its just that some us forget to load the film."
