It is a common misconception that having at least one in the inventory is required to enable duels between Path of the Dragon covenanters using Dragon Eye. Whether a player possesses a Dragon Scale or not makes no difference.
Drakes seem to have a 5% chance of dropping a dragon scale. This means that with maximum item discovery (410), one can expect to get 80 dragon scales after killing 390±39 drakes. Therefore, expect to kill anywhere from 351 to 429 drakes if you want to get rank 3 in the Path of the Dragon Covenant offline.
