|This spell hurls a large and heavy metal bolt at the caster's foe.|
In spite of being a single target spell, Iron Shot is extremely popular due to the fact that no monster has resistance against pure physical damage. Even Air Magic-specialists have been known to pick it up as a guaranteed weapon against the most dangerous and resistant foes out there, such as orbs of fire. While Lehudib's Crystal Spear functions similarly while doing more damage, Iron Shot is much easier to find and cast safely, making it the more common choice.
Several monsters have access to Iron Shot. This version of the spell is almost identical to the player version, though the damage is significantly more variable.
