Iron Armor (Half Plate, Iron Armour) is an armor item seen in many games in the Dragon Quest series. Iron Armor is a strong piece of armor made from beaten out iron panels. Although you can't move about so fast, it really protects you from an enemy's blows. In the first Dragon Quest, it was named Half Plate.
Half Plate (Iron Armor in later translations) can be bought in Garinham, Kol and Rimuldar for 1000 G. The wearer gains +16 defense when equipped. Due to text restrictions in the Gameboy Color remake of Dragon Quest, Iron Armor was renamed to Iron with a picture of armor beside it.
