Iron armor is the third-lowest tier of craftable armor in the game. It takes a total of 60 / 75 Iron Bars to craft a full suit, this translates to 180 / 225 Iron Ore per player to craft all the necessary bars for this armor.

The set consists of an Iron Helmet, Iron Chainmail and Iron Greaves.

The Ancient Iron Helmet is a rare drop from Skeletons in the Underground, and is functionally identical to the Iron Helmet. The two helmets are interchangeable, with no bonus loss.

A full set grants a basic 7 defense plus a set bonus of 2 defense, which equals a total of 9 defense.
