last time i checked volcanos either go dormant or asleep. if it went extinct there would be no volcano.
are you playing classic?! dragons are in minecreaft and have been since 1.9 prerealese 4 or 5(or 3)
get the facts.
EDIT: in fact rather than having dragon armour, have the dragon drop a map. the map shows the location of an acient underground temple.after exploring the temple you find a lever, which stops the lava flow covering the tresure. but have the dragon still be alive on peacfull, so people cant just turn to peacfull mode to avoid the dragon.
That would actually work better unless it fell into lava but you could find the temple on accident/or it not be able to generate within what a map can show/ect.
