The Iron Shoulderpads are one of the many craftable armor pieces available in Veloren. They are the direct upgrade to the Bronze Guards, instead of using Copper and Tin as its main ingredients, they uses Iron Ingots and Leather Strips.
Iron, being the direct upgrade to Bronze, uses items available in Caves, deeper than Copper and Tin. Have a Pickaxe in hand when exploring a Cave to collect the Ores scattered along the Cave's surface. For leather strips, you can process Simple Leather at a Tanning Rack to produce them. Both these materials can also commonly be found being sold at the many Merchants in towns.
Due to how Iron is generated, it is advisable to have at least Bronze level gear when venturing down a cave. Should you trust your abilities though, the added risk of going into a cave undefended might prove worthwhile, as the Iron Set has double the defence and stun resistance compared to Bronze.
