Block armor gives you the ability to make armor out of nearly every block in the game. The armor is all crafted the same as traditional armor, except now you have a significantly broader variety to choose from.
But this mod is more than just fancy new armor designs. Many of the blocks will give you a boosted effect when wearing them. Any block that grows such as trees, grass, or cacti will actually regenerate the armor’s health over time.
And some will even help your defense like Quartz providing more speed and strength or Netherrack igniting enemies during fights, whether you hit them or they hit you.
