Each is crafted from 1 of 5 different materials, which are is ranked leather, gold, chain*, iron, and diamond. Each type and material will provide a different armor level. A full set of leather armor will give 3 1/2 of armor points; gold will give 5 1/2 of armor; chain will give you 6 armor points; iron will give 7 1/2 armor; and diamond will give all 10 armor points.

  • Gold is one of the weakest elements in the game. Armor made of gold will deplete quickly.
  • Diamond Armor is very expensive to craft as 24 diamonds are required to craft a full set of diamond armor.
  • Occasionally, pieces of armor can be found in chests from generated structures. This saves some crafting for the player.
