How to make armor in Minecraft

Before seeing how to make armor, it is worth mentioning what exactly it is for. If you wear armor you take less damage when attacked, whether melee or ranged . In turn, when you receive damage the armor loses one point of durability. Depending on the material used to create the armor, the pieces will have more or less durability points.


To make a helmet you need: x5 leather, x5 iron ingots, x5 gold ingots or x5 diamonds .


To craft a breastplate you need: x8 leather, x8 iron ingots, x8 gold ingots or x8 diamonds .


Greaves require less materials than breastplates. To make greaves you have to have: x7 leather, x7 iron ingots, x7 gold ingots or x8 diamonds .


The last piece of armor is the scarps. To craft scarps you need: x4 leather, x4 iron ingots, x4 gold ingots or x4 diamonds .

How to get the materials

If you want to make the most basic armor you only need leather. You can get leather by killing cows, horses and donkeys. When they die they usually release several pieces of said material .
