Iron platebody detail.png

The iron platebody is the second weakest platebody in free-to-play, being stronger than the bronze platebody. For players training Ranged or Magic, an iron platebody is not a good choice due to its crippling negative bonus in those skills. Like all iron equipment, this requires a Defence level of 10.

Iron platebodies are the tertiary ingredient used in making iron titan pouches, and they are also used in clue scrolls. Thus, they are usually not difficult to sell.

While smithing iron platebodies with a Pack Yak and standard anvils, it is possible to achieve rates of 95,000 to 100,000 Smithing experience per hour. The Scroll of efficiency, bought as a reward from Dungeoneering can increase the items made per trip due to its bar saving effect. Portable forges greatly increase the smithing experience rate and save even more bars.

Players may receive iron platebodies from opening a box of summoning ingredients, a possible reward from the Familiarisation Distraction and Diversion.
