The Lumite Pauldron is the shoulder-covering part of the Lumite Armor set and reduces the damage your player character shoulders would take from Creatures' attacks - or from physical attacks dealt by melee Weapons of other players or Explosives when PvP is enabled on the game world or player claim (by default).
Lumite Pauldrons offer 320 defense points when equipped in the shoulder armor equipment slot.
Since update R55 on August 22nd 2018, armor does not influence the look of your player character anymore when worn; instead, your Lumite Pauldron will be worn invisibly, while you can select arms Costumes (some of which may look like plate armor or the like) individually to customize the look of your player character's shoulders. Sometimes, torso Costumes will also have shoulder pads attached to them.
Lumite Armor is the fifth (tier) and best armor-type that you can craft in Creativerse.
The Lumite Pauldron was introduced with update R31 in May 2016 and replaced the Lumite Helmet.
How to obtain
Like all armor in Creativerse, Lumite Pauldrons can be crafted in your Crafting Menu (to be opened by pressing "q" as the default key) after unlocking their crafting recipe for free by obtaining or crafting at least one Diamond Pauldron.
Lumite Armor parts can not be obtained from any randomly spawning Treasure Chests or Creatures, and they also cannot be bought via any block kits for Blueprints, since they cannot be placed. Lumite gear is supposed to be very rare in Creativerse on purpose.
How to unlock the crafting recipe
The crafting recipe for Lumite Pauldrons can be unlocked for free by crafting or obtaining at least one Diamond Pauldron.
How to craft
To craft a Lumite Pauldron, you'll need:
- 3x Corruption Dust that can either be looted or pet-harvested from any Corrupted Creature; either a Corrupted Pigsy, a Corrupted Leafi, a Corrupted Chizzard, a Corrupted Miru, a Corrupted Rockster or the Thing. Occasionally, "summonable" Idol Event Creatures and Halloween-specific Ghost Creatures will also drop Corruption Dust when killed.
- 2 Trog Horns, obtainable as a loot or pet-harvest from Trogs that spawn during the day in Canyons-biomes
- 2 Arcstones, obtainable as a loot or pet-harvest from any kind of Keepa that can randomly spawn anywhere, or from Daily Login Chests
- 2 Lumite (bars) that can be smelted in a Forge from Lumite Ore that can only be extracted from Lumite Nodes found on the Corruption layer deep underground
- 2 Diamond Rods that can be made of a Diamond (bar) in a Processor without requiring any crafting recipe. Diamond Bars are smelted from Diamond Ore that can be extracted from Diamond Nodes mainly found on the Lava layer underground or created from Coal Nodes
Since this Armor set is the best possible armor in Creativerse, no further armor recipes will be unlocked when crafting Lumite Armor.
Crafting (or obtaining) all 4 parts of Lumite Armor at least once is the objective of the Quest "Lumite's Might". This quest is unlocked by completing the quest "Diamond in the Rough". After completing this quest, you'll be rewarded by 20 Lumite bars, 1 Lumite Sword and 5 placeable Diamond Treasure Chests.
Completion of this quest will then unlock the Armorer Badge that reduces physical damage taken from enemy hits without being reflected in the defense points of the armor that is equipped.
How to use
Armor parts will automatically be equipped as soon as you craft or take them if the respective armor slot is empty, meaning that no armor of this type (breastplate, armguards, pauldron, leggings) is currently equipped.
Armor will only start to protect your player character after you've equipped it. To equip armor, right-click on the respective armor piece in your inventory, or drag it with left-click from the inventory into its according armor equipment slot on the right side of the inventory next to your character's model.
This will place the new armor part into its according armor-slot next to your character's model, while the formerly worn armor-piece will be put into your inventory in return.
Armor, when worn, will protect your player character from the impact of physical hits from creatures, reducing the damage inflicted on the character. It will not protect your player character from falling damage, drowning, environment afflictions or any elemental damage.
Creatures usually hit only one piece of armor with each attack, which will reduce the durability of this armor part, until it will fall apart completely. You will be notified onscreen if any of your armor "breaks". Repairing armor is not possible in Creativerse. When a piece of armor has lost all durability, it will fall apart and leave the respective body-part unprotected.
So if your armor has only very little durability left, you might want to consider taking a newly crafted or found spare armor part with you that you can equip as soon as the currently worn will be destroyed!
The durability of armor is indicated by the shrinking length of the green bar on the icons of the armor pieces in their equipment slots to the right side of your inventory; and also as a color-code on the armor doll in the bottom left corner of the main game-UI.
On this small symbolic doll, green armor-pieces have (nearly) full durability, yellow pieces have significantly reduced durability, pale red pieces are nearly fully worn out and white parts of the armor doll are not protected by any armor (anymore).
