Egg damage reduced by armor?[edit source]

Eggs are both listed under things that damage armor and things that don't damage armor. Can someone check which is true? --82.135.92.89 19:28, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Eggs do no damage to either the player, nor the armor while on a singleplayer world. I then logged onto a multiplayer world and spawned in 4 golden chestplates. One of the chestplates was ordinary and unenchanted, another was enchanted with unbreaking III, another one has thorns III, and the final one has thorns CXXVII (127). Each of the chestplates took 1 durability per hit. Now, as you may know thorns usually makes armor take extra damage when hit, and unbreaking usually makes it take less damage when hit. I then decided to try the same with a fishing rod, same thing.--PixelGMS (talk) 13:15, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Once the first snapshot for 1.9 came out I decided I'd do some testing with the arrows, and all arrows, or atleast the 4 I tested, do damage to your armor. I tested the Instant health arrow, the Instant damage arrow, the Spectral arrow, and the Fire resistance arrow. The Insant damage arrow did extra durability damage to the armor.--PixelGMS (talk) 16:11, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Chain Mail[edit source]

Hi ‎TySkyo, about fire and chain mail: on this wiki we're covering only the latest version in the main body of the article, and any historical detail is covered in the History section. (See MCW:UPTODATE)

In the current version, there is no crafting recipe [1] and there is no fire item fire that you can get in your inventory. You can go back and check too, fire was removed in a snapshot for 1.8. No way to hack it in anymore, no way to use commands, anything: the game has a list of things that it allows in item slots (or drops or whatever), and fire isn't on that list anymore. – Sealbudsman (Aaron) SealbudsmanFace.png T/C 17:04, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

15w44a or 43a[edit source]

Hi Anomie x, I'm pretty sure the nether fortress changes and stronghold library changes happened along with the introduction of the loot table files in 14w43a, not the major rebalance in 44a, is that right? – Sealbudsman talk/contr 19:03, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Hmm. Yeah, you're right, those two changes were 15w43a. Anomie x (talk) 21:10, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Substantial rewrite for 1.9[edit source]

This page may need a substantial rewrite for 1.9, beyond the simple removal of tags and such. I'll leave this to qualified hands. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 16:25, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

From the looks of it, most of the upcoming information is already there, it is just the old information which may or may not need to be removed.
If no one updates it with a few hours, you should be able to mark it with {{needs update}}, then at least readers know it is a bit outdated. KnightMiner t/c 16:45, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Leather Tunic Protection IV VS. Diamond Chestplate[edit source]

So I found a question on Minecraft Noob Test and it seem to be wrong. What is better? 1.Lether Tunic Protection IV 2.Diamond Chestplate 3.??? 4.??? --Nutchapol (talk) 17:06, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

So, what does the Noob Test say, what is actually better in the game, and what does this page lead a person to think? – Sealbudsman talk/contr 17:22, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Damage reduction enchants[edit source]

How is damage reduced? Is raw damage first reduced by enchants, or first reduced by armor ? In other words:

total damage = [(damage*(1-CappedEPF/25))]*(1-max(defensePoints/5;defensePoints-[damage*(1-cappedEPF/25)]/(2+toughness/4)))25) - enchant reduction before armor reduction

OR

total damage = [damage*(1-max(defensePoints/5;defensePoints-damage/(2+toughness/4))/25)]*(1-CappedEPF/25) - armor reduction before enchant reduction
