In the text we read "its breath weapon is a powerful blast of metal slivers (3d30, affected by AC)". On the other hand there is a (red linked) Template:Unbreathing flag. Surely a contradiction. Anybody out there who can solve the riddle? -- Bwijn (talk) 18:31, 3 April 2014 (CEST)

"Unbreathing" refers to the fact that it does not require air to live. It cannot drown, it takes reduced damage from asphyxiation sources, and even if it didn't already have poison resistance, it would ignore damaging clouds that require breathing to take effect, such as poison and noxious clouds. "Breath weapons" are attacks that function by being forcefully ejected from the mouth. In English, dragons are known for "breathing fire." In the iron dragon's case, maybe "vomiting" metal slivers would be more accurate, but the term "breath weapon" is simply what's used in every case. --MoogleDan (talk) 18:42, 3 April 2014 (CEST)
