Turtle Shell

From Minecraft Wiki

A turtle shell is a type of helmet armor and brewing ingredient.

Usage[edit | edit source]

When equipped, a turtle shell will grant a player 2 armor points and Water Breathing for 10 seconds, which resets each time the player comes up for air.

Turtle shells can also be used to brew a Potion of the Turtle Master. This potion will grant the player Resistance IV and Slowness IV, thus making it the first-ever potion to apply different status effects in the same potion, as well as the first brewable potion to grant Resistance.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

To craft a turtle shell, the player will need to collect 5 scutes. The only way to collect scutes is mate turtles, protect the eggs, wait for eggs to hatch, and finally grow the baby turtles.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Like other helmets, turtle shells can be repaired and enchanted with scutes on an anvil and enchantment table.
  • An enhanced Potion of the Turtle Master will grant you Resistance VI, making you invincible to everything.
