Useful Info

An iron dragon is every bit as tough as its name implies. It can't fly, but makes up for it by having high AC, a lot of HP, and multiple resistances. It does a significant amount of damage in melee and takes a while to bring down, so be prepared. Engaging an iron dragon at range is safer, but not exactly safe: its breath weapon is a powerful blast of metal slivers (3d30, affected by AC). This dragon is commonly found in the Iron City of Dis, less frequently in Vault:8, and rarely appears in the lower levels of the Dungeon itself.

Tips & Tricks

It's entirely possible that you'll come across an iron dragon before you have the firepower to take it down safely. Fortunately, they're slower than the average character, so escape isn't too difficult.
