The strangest thing happened in my survival world. You see, I have played this world a lot. This is why I had a full suit of Protection IV, Unbreaking III, and Mending diamond armour (I got all this legit) on me. I was in a nether fortress farming some blazes for XP, and all my armour was at FULL DURABILITY. It was going very smooth, until the weirdest thing ever happened. Suddenly, my helmet, chestplate, and boots all broke at the exact same time, making the audible sound of a tool breaking. This should never have been possible. Unbreaking III and Mending on full durability diamond armour, and then bam! It’s broken. That’s not all. My diamond leggings remained on me, without even a mark in its durability. There is more yet. Instantly after my helmet, chestplate, and boots impossibly broke, 8 yellow hearts appeared below the usual 10 red ones. It was as if I had some strange version of Absorbtion given to me when my stuff busted. I am very angry because of this. It took me HALF A YEAR of miserable grinding to get this insane armour, only to have it disappear because of some stupid bug. And the yellow hearts just add to the weirdness. As for reproducing this, create a set of gear the same as the stuff I had (see below) and let some blazes shoot you in Survival mode. It may not happen right away, as I spent about 10 minutes killing the blazes from the spawner before it happened.
Gear I had:
Protection IV, Thorns I, Unbreaking III, Mending I (Impossibly broke from this bug)
Protection IV, Thorns II, Unbreaking III, Mending I (Impossibly broke from this bug)
Protection IV, Unbreaking III, Mending I (Did not impossibly break when everything else did)
Protection IV, Feather Falling IV, Unbreaking III, Mending I (Impossibly broke)
It could possibly be a cause of Thorns, as 2 out of 3 armour pieces that I lost had Thorns. I have noticed some bugs with blazes reported on this site recently, so it could be the blazes, and not the armour.
The screenshot shows that I now only have Diamond Leggings on, shown by the armour points, and the very odd 8 yellow hearts, and as you can see, I have no potion or golden apple affects to cause them in any natural way. It took a while to make this huge post, read through it all to get the full details.
Please, please respond as soon as possible, and let me know if you need more details. This may be extremely difficult to reproduce, as I’m not entirely sure how to myself, but please try. I am beyond upset at what happened today, and I’m quitting Minecraft until I get further news of this issue’s workflow. Yes, I lost so many hours and resources making that armour, and I’m upset about it. But I know I can’t ever get it back. I have to suck it up, deal with this stupid game and its stupid bugs. But the last thing I want is other people losing all that, too, so I made this post in case others had or will have the same thing happen to them.
Oh, and is it possible for Mojang to give me my armour back? That would settle this nicely.
I just realized there are many issues similar to this one, and that this one will probably be marked as a duplicate even though it is not identical to another issue here. Keep in mind that I did search before creating this post, and came up with nothing. Completely ignore this post of mine!
