Protection and durability

  • Using wolf armor on a wolf that the player has tamed enables the armor to be fitted to the wolf.
  • Wolf armor offers the wolf the same protection as horse armor, with an armor value of 11 (šŸ›” Ɨ 5.5).
  • When the owner uses shears on a wolf wearing armor, the armor is de-equipped from the wolf.
  • If a wolf dies while equipped with wolf armor, the armor is dropped.
  • Unlike player armor, wolf armor has no durability. This means that wolf armor can be used indefinitely if it is not destroyed.
