Diamond armor worth it?

#1CellularArrestPosted 10/3/2010 12:00:51 PM
Last night I found diamonds for the first time. I got pretty lucky and found a vein of like 20. I crafted a diamond pickaxe, sword and shovel. I wasn't really sure if it's worth the diamonds to craft a whole set of armor or if I should just save it for more tools.

Probably not. Fall in lava once, and you just lost 20 diamonds. A diamond sword, however, is very useful.

If you have a plethora of it, go for it. Otherwise Iron is fine.

Good point. I was making leather armor but that doesn't seem very durable at all. Do better types of armor offer better protection, or do they just last longer?

I think the better armors just last longer, while the protection is the same.

they definitely add protection too, with diamond armor you can withstand way more damage.... that being said i still think its a major waste. but then again i think its a waste to make anything more than a iron sword.

my diamond is strictly for tools
