Iron armor is the third-lowest tier of metal armor set. It consists of an Iron Helmet, Iron Chainmail and Iron Greaves.

Its alternate ore counterpart is the Lead armor.

It takes a total of (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 60 / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 75 Iron Bars to craft a full suit, this translates to (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 180 / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 225 Iron Ore per player to craft all the necessary bars for this armor.

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 7 defense plus a set bonus of 2 defense, which equals a total of 9 defense.
