It seems like every week there is another Minecraft Mod out that enhances or adds on to the ever-popular Minecraft. The newest comes out of the creatively talented hands of none other than, you guessed it, Lead Developer Christian Audigier. Wolves With Armor is a comprehensive overhaul of the player versus player combat in Minecraft. Wolves With Armor takes the basic concept of using the shields and armor of the game and cranks the saturation up tenfold. Not only will you be adding a ton of new features to the game as a whole, but you’ll also have the added benefit of seeing the old favorites come alive in a completely new way.
Wolves With Armor is designed around the idea, “The weak become the strongest.” So don’t be afraid of taking down large bosses with a few well placed abilities. But that’s not all there is to this mod; it makes use of an ingenious combat loop that causes enemies to bleed each time you hit them. The mod will even allow players to increase their armor by eating the armor of weaker enemies. No more stealing from those guys!
Now don’t worry, though, because the mod has a few safeguards built into it that will prevent cheaters from doing away with the fun. Like the original mod, you’ll be able to see the “health bars” of your foes and be able to attack freely without any concern for taking damage. If you run into an issue, you can speak with one of the wolves and they should be able to help you out. They even have a helpful message center to help you get started with modding.
While the armor and weapons sound great, the true reason to install this mod is because of the “wolves” reference in the name. It’s like the old saying goes, “you can’t fight what you can’t fight.” With the Wolves With Armor, you can’t fight the bosses, but you can fight what they are going to be like when you are fighting them… your friends!
There is also a crafting recipe available for you to craft your own armor. This gives you the opportunity to customize your character as you like. There are so many options available. You can go for big or small, tough or soft, bright or dark, and so forth. This is the real beauty of this mod: you get to be the wolf that you want to be!
If you are not interested in the armor, you can simply download the vanilla texture and use it. Of course, if you want to customize the wolves, that’s entirely possible as well. Just choose the texture you want and give your character a new coat of paint! Enjoy playing the Minecraft with the powerful wolves. The Minecraft Mod is highly recommended.
