Armor isn't necessary for Mine Blocks, but it makes survival easier by shielding damage dealt by mobs. By placing it in the armor slots in the inventory menu, armor can be worn. There are 5 types of armor in the game thus far: leather, iron, gold, diamond and the dragon scale tier.

Armor provides a random amount of protection (based off of its tier), so calculating the exact amount of damage with armor isn't possible. However, there is a way to estimate how good a set of armor is by the following chart:

Types % of damage protection per item worn
Leather 7 ±2%
Iron 13 ±5%
Gold 10 ±4%
Diamond 15 ±7%
Dragon scale 15 ±9%

Dyed Leader Armor

Leader armor can be dyed by combining a piece of armor with any dye color.

The color can be later removed from the item by using it on a cauldron containing water.
