Minecraft (Pocket Edition)
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.
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.
Each type of Armor provides varying degrees of protection. Here is a list of Armor from most to least protective:
- Diamond Armor
- Iron Armor
- Gold Armor
- Leather Armor
- No Armor
A complete set of any Armor type requires 24 of that resource. For example, if you want complete Diamond Armor you will require a total of 24 Diamonds. 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.
The above crafting recipe is an example for creating a Helmet.
