This module gives armour "weight" by slowing the player depending on their armour points.


Based on the amount of armour points you have, different levels of the slowness status effect are applied. More armour points causes more slowness. For example, being fully equipped with Leather Armour will cause no Slowness effect, but a full set of Diamond Armour will cause the Slowness III effect. Players should consider what level of protection they need for different activities, and have a few different outfits to wear accordingly.

With the Metallurgy module installed, the Helious Shamir can be used to reduce the weight of armour. Each piece of armour with a Helious Shamir applied will reduce the total Slowness effect level by one level. However having more Helious armour than armour weight will cause the player to randomly float into the air and inflict damage due to not having enough weight to weigh the player down.

MC 1.8 Version

In MC 1.8 version, weight is calculated by assigning an amount to each armour piece, and adding up the points. This was heavily compacted once 1.9 introduced a new objective to test the armour points directly.
