Armor is a category of item that players and some mobs can equip. They have varying levels of protection depending on the material used for crafting. Armor pieces provide players with protection from damage received from mobs and the environment.



How to get armor?


An armor is a set of different pieces that protect other parts of the player's body, an armor set consists of a helmet, chestplate, leggings, and boots. These four pieces can work independently of each other meaning you can mix different armor sets if you wish. Players can craft armor from a variety of materials, these include - leather, chainmail, iron, gold, diamond, and netherite. To craft a helmet you will need four pieces of the desired material and place them in the crafting grid as shown below.


To craft a chestplate you will need eight pieces of the desired material and place them in the crafting grid as shown below.


To craft a pair of leggings you will need seven pieces of the desired material and place them in the crafting grid as shown below.


To craft a pair of boots you will need four pieces of the desired material and place them in the crafting grid as shown below.


To craft a netherite armor piece you will need a netherite ingot and the diamond armor you wish to upgrade, by combining both on a smithing table you will be able to get the corresponding piece of netherite armor.


Armor pieces can be obtained from loot chests and mob drops, players can also buy iron and chainmail armor from armorer villagers. There is a chance of a piglin dropping iron boots when bartering.


What is the use of armor?


To have any protective effect, armor must be worn by the player. A helmet, chestplate, leggings, and boots are equipped by placing them in the head, chest, legs, and feet slots of the inventory next to the player's character, respectively. Armor can also be equipped by right-clicking while held. A chestplate provides the most protection per unit of material, followed by leggings. There are seven different types of materials of armor, including turtle shells. Whenever a piece of armor absorbs damage for the player, the armor itself is damaged, reducing its durability. After taking enough damage, the armor piece is completely destroyed.



Conclusion


Armor is an essential item in the game that reduces incoming damage from mobs and the environment. They can be crafted from leather, iron, gold, chainmail, diamond, netherite, and scutes. Players can also find armor in loot chests across various structures and can also be obtained through mob drops.
