Armor – official minecraft wiki year 6 electricity

Armor defense points are controlled by an attribute, generic.armor. The player’s current protection level is represented visually by the armor bar. The armor meter is affected by the particular pieces that are worn as well as the tier of the armor. The following table shows the amount of defense points added by default by each individual piece of armor, as well as the total points added by a full set of armor for each material.

Broken down, this means that each armor point gives 4% maximum damage reduction against an incoming attack. Without toughness, this max damage reduction is lessened by 2% for each hit point of the incoming attack. 1 piece of diamond armor, which grants +2 toughness to the player, decreases the defense reduction value for each hit point to 1.6%, 2 diamond pieces decreases it to 4⁄ 3% (about 1.3333%), 3 decreases it to 8⁄ 7% (about 1.1428%) and 4 decreases it to 1%. The exact formula for the defense reduction in percent is defenseReductionInPercent =

Simply put, as toughness increases, the amount of defense reduction done by high-damaging attacks is diminished, and as toughness approaches a very high value (through commands), the defense reduction caused by high-damaging attacks becomes negligible. The final damage reduction value of the armor is capped at a minimum of 0.8% damage reduction per armor point, and to a maximum of 80% total. If armor is cheated in so that the min cap is larger than the max cap, the min cap will be ignored.

Note that these damage values will be lower if a player is wearing pieces of diamond armor or has toughness added to their armor through commands. Armor values of 16 and above are impossible to obtain without at least one piece of diamond armor, without using cheats.

Armor can be enchanted to provide various enchantments. Enchantments can provide more protection or allow armor to protect certain types of damage that armor doesn’t normally protect against, such as fall damage or fire. Damage reduction from enchantments do not decrease the armor’s durability. Armor enchantments do not appear on the armor bar.

As with several enchantments, several different levels of protection are possible. The maximum level of a protection enchantment is currently IV (4). Protection enchantments from multiple pieces of armor stack together, up to a calculated maximum.

When a player or mob wearing armor is subjected to damage, the EPFs of all applicable enchantments are added together, capped at 20, and then damage is reduced as damage = damage * ( 1 – cappedEPF / 25 ), giving a maximum reduction of 80% at EPF 20.

Because of the caps in the calculation, it’s possible to max out protection against specific types of damage with only three pieces of armor. For example, two pieces of armor with Blast Protection IV (EPF 8 each) and a single piece with Protection IV (EPF 4) would give a total EPF of 20 versus explosions. Any additional EPF would be wasted against explosions (but might be useful against other types of damage, if applicable).

It is possible using / give to obtain armor with an enchantment level higher than what is normally obtainable via normal survival. Using this method, a player could give themselves, for example, a full set of diamond armor with a Protection V enchantment on every piece. Following the algorithm above, we find that, since Protection V has an EPF of 5, the armor will exactly reach the maximum EPF of 20 for all types of damage. Any higher Protection enchantments could be used to allow the cap to be reached with only one enchantment, rather than having a full set of enchanted armor, but would be wasted if all pieces shared the same level enchantment.

Any hit from a damage source that can be blocked by armor will remove one point of durability from each piece of armor worn for every 4 ( ) of incoming damage (rounded down, but never below 1). The following chart displays how many hits each piece of armor can endure.
