The Obsidian Pauldron was introduced with update R31 in May 2016 and replaced the Obsidian Helmet.
It offers 40 defense points. When worn, the Obsidian Pauldron will be visible as a violet-brown shoulder pad on the left shoulder of the player character.
Obsidian armor is the second (tier) armor-type that you can craft in Creativerse. Obsidian armor parts can also be found occasionally in Iron Treasure Chests on the Lava layer underground in deep caves, spawning only in complete darkness, mainly on Hardened Lava or Igneous Rock. And you can also get Obsidian armor parts as loot or pet-harvest from Keepas occasionally, especially the Silver and/or Golden variants.
The crafting recipe for Obsidian Pauldrons is unlocked by crafting or finding Leather Pauldrons (can occasionally be discovered in Obsidian Treasure Chests spawning on blocks of the Stalactite layer underground, or can be obtained from Keepas as a loot or pet-harvest).
To craft an Obsidian Pauldron, you'll need (as of R35 in October 2016):
- 2 Miru Eyes, obtained as a loot or pet-harvest from green ordinary Mirus, found in the Fossil layer underground in dark Caves as well as on the Stalactite layer deeper undergrond, or sometimes on the surface during the night near cave-entrances. Arctic Mirus on the other hand have blue eyes that cannot be used for crafting Obsidian armor
- 2 (pieces of) Leather, obtained as a loot or pet-harvest from many creatures, mainly from Pigsies or Night Pigsies
- 2 Obsidian(-bars) made in a Forge from Obsidian Ore from Nodes found in the Fossil layer underground in shallow Caves or in Mountains
- 2 Stone Rods made of Stone, Limestone or Bedrock in a Processor
Crafting or taking an Obsidian Pauldron is one of the requirements to unlock the crafting recipe for Iron Pauldrons.
Currently (R35 in October 2016) armor merely protects your player-character from the impact of physical hits from creatures, reducing the damage inflicted on the character.
Each hit 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.
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.
