Armour Expansion Mod 1.8

Armour Expansion Mod for Minecraft 1.8

Updated: Jul 4, 2017 | 828 views |


Armour Expansion Mod, of course, aims to expand armour by adding 5 new armour & tool materials to Minecraft.

In order to make these armours, you can use many materials such as standard lapis lazuli, redstone dust, nether quartz or glowstone dust, then smelt them to make ingots. Each of them will have its own strength and durability between leather and iron.

  • Lapis armour: Gives you the ability to breath underwater, along with walking and breaking blocks at the same speed as you would on land.
  • Redstone armour: Makes you completely fireproof, useful for those trips to the nether, or maybe if you’re just clumsy.
  • Quartz armour: Gives mining haste 3 ? Cut through blocks as if they were butter.
  • Glowstone armour: Gives constant night vision, light level 15 everywhere you look. Can’t be doing with torches? This is the suit for you.
  • And the fifth armour is Emerald Armour, which is stronger than diamond and gives you the strength to punch 130% harder than before when a full set is worn. For when you’re so rich making it rain just doesn’t cut the mustard. You can now make Emerald Armour.

Additionally, there is a tools expansion, using the above ingots or emeralds to make tools by the vanilla recipes. These can harvest everything that iron can, have a durability and attack between stone and iron, yet break blocks faster than iron. The benefits may be more aesthetic than practical, but at least you can mine with style?
