    The pub notes said you will be able to enhance armor with scales, but I don't see any options to do so. I made a plate gorget with iron, put yellow scales in my bag and set them in the blacksmith gump, but when I click on Enhance it states I need a special material to enhance. I checked the sewing kit to see if the enhancement was mean for leather (kind of makes sense) but not options for scales are listed anywhere i could see. Anyone seen any online documentation on this??? Thanks

    This was right below the Ore & Leather Enhancement chages. So it appears you should be able to enhance Armor with Scales.. Other than that I have not found any information on how to do it.

    Well, you are just another victim of the rampant (Software) Engineer Influenza and a minor enhancement/enhancing confusion. ;)
    To decrypt that numbers you have to know:

    Basic resists of each dragon scale piece is: 3 3 3 3 3
    + 15 (random), if exeptional
    + up to 5 (random, GM Armslore)
    + 11 Material "Enhancement" Bonus as stated in the patch notes (not stated: +40 Luck if yellow scales were used)

    Crafting with scales had some changes in the past. (Ingots had been used, Bane Chosen parts could have been enhanced..). Since there is no "basic scale", the two step process you are used to by metal or leather crafting is shortened to a one step process:
    Now you preselect the scale type (representing the "special material") in the blacksmithing menu and craft the piece (last category) thus receiving directly the "Enhancement" Bonus.

    I'm sorry, enhancing basic plate armor with scales is not possible.
