Lumite Breastplates are the chest-covering part of the Lumite armor "set" and will reduce the damage your player-character takes from creatures' attacks. The Lumite Breastplate offers 480 defense points.
When worn, Lumite Breastplates will replace the shirt of your player character with a sturdier sleevesless vest with a violet colored breast piece in front and a belt buckle ornament.
The colors of Lumite Breastplates will be adjusted to those that you have chosen (and can change anytime) in the character customization - accessible when starting the game by clicking on the gear-like symbol by your user name in the bottom left corner of the main menu screen.
Lumite armor is the fifth (tier) and best armor-type that you can craft in Creativerse. Currently you cannot find any already crafted Lumite armor-pieces in the game.
The crafting recipe for Lumite Breastplates is unlocked by crafting or taking Diamond Breastplate.
To craft a Lumite Breastplate, you'll need (as of R25 in November 2015):
- 4x Corruption Dust, either looted or pet-harvested from any corrupted creature:Corrupted Pigsy, Corrupted Leafi, Corrupted Chizzard, Corrupted Miru, Corrupted Rockster or the Thing, all spawning on corrupted blocks, mainly found on the Corruption layer deep underground
- 2 Trog Horns, obtained as a loot or pet-harvest from Trogs that spawn during the day in Canyons-biomes
- 2 Arcstones, obtained as a loot or pet-harvest from any kind of Keepa that can randomly spawn anywhere
- 3 Lumite (bars) made in a Forge from Lumite Ore extracted from Nodes only found on the Corruption layer underground
- 2 Diamond Rods made of Diamond (bars) in a Processor that are made from Diamond Ore extracted from Diamond Nodes
To equip armor and/or replace older armor with a newer piece, simply use right-click on the armor-piece you wish to equip in your inventory, and it will automatically go into the according armor-slot next to your character's model, while the formerly worn armor-piece will be put into your inventory.
Currently armor merely protects your player-character from the impact of physical hits from creatures, reducing the damage inflicted on the character.
Each hit of a creature will reduce the durability of one piece of armor that has been hit. When a piece of armor has lost all durability, it will fall apart and leave the respective body-part unprotected, which will be indicated by the armor doll in the bottom left corner of the screen, where body parts without armor will appear in white color.
