You might have crafted a Helmet to protect yourself from Mobs attack, right?

But did it work? if I tell you about a unique helmet that can not only be good for defense but will also be helpful underwater. these turtle shells can be used as a helmet which will provide 2 Armor points for defense and also gives a water breathing effect for up to 10 seconds.

Turtle shells can also be used as an ingredient to brew a Potion of Turtle Master. This unique potion gives players multiple effects at a time i.e. Resistance III and Slowness IV, it makes the player invulnerable but with a drawback of extreme slowness.

How to get a Turtle Shell?

To craft a Turtle Shell, You will need to gather some Scute first which is actually not an easy task. Scute only drops when a baby turtle grows up to an adult turtle, this is the only possible way to get them.
