Armor

Iron Armor

The above image is an example of Iron Armor.

Obtaining

All Armor is obtained through Crafting. For exapmle, Iron Armor is made by Crafting Iron Ingot (see recipe below).

Usage / Purpose

All Armor provides varying degrees of protection against all kinds of damage. Each piece of Armor provides additional protection, as shown in the Armor bar at the top of the screen.

Storage

Each piece of Armor requires one inventory slot. If it is worn it no longer resides in the general inventory and moves over to the Armor inventory screen.

Notes

Each type of Armor provides varying degrees of protection. Here is a list of Armor from most to least protective:

Steve with no armor

The above image is an example of how un-cool it is to have no armor. Poor Steve. He is sad. Sad and afraid.

A complete set of any Armor type requires 24 of that resource. For example, if you want complete Iron Armor you will require a total of 24 Iron Ingots. It is possible, however, to wear only partial Armor and build a complete set over time as the resources come available.

Additionally, you can mix-and-match Armor types. For example, you can wear a Gold Helmet, Iron Chestplate, Diamond Boots and Leather Leggings. You will either look hideous or cool, depending on your fashion sensibilities. Regardless, you will end up on various "Worst Dressed" lists, but as long as you do not fall victim to Skeleton attacks you can probably live with this.

Recipe

Iron Helmet

The above is an example of the crafting recipe for creating an Iron Helmet.
