Before you say this is fake, or that I gave the skeleton the armor, I didn't. It's your choice to believe me or not, but this is the honest to goodness truth; I turn around whilst caving since I heard a rattling of bones, come to find out the skeleton had on full iron armor. Also, this was in single player, so I know no one could have given it the armor.
It took 4 hits to kill it with a sharpness 5 sword.
I didn't even know these spawns were possible, has anyone else ever seen one?
Wow you guys must be oblivius to updates or something. Since 1.4 mobs have a slight chance to spawn with armour and an even more slight chance to drop that armour
Do you mean me? I've known all about them spawning with armor, I just don't play as much as the next guy, not enough anyway to know every single distinct possibility as to what armor they can spawn with. The fact that a skeleton spawned with full iron armor was amazing, in my opinion. Thanks anyway though, snapshot sam.
