The Dark Plate is a strong chestpiece made from Dark Steel. It has the same protection value as iron equipment, durability slightly better than diamond, and enchantability equal to leather.
It can be upgraded at an anvil using a Vibrant Crystal to become empowered. Once empowered the item will gain energy storage and grant the protection level of diamond armor. As long as the item is charged, half the durability damage will be absorbed from the power. Empowering the item also opens up further upgrades:
Dark Steel equipment can be upgraded at an anvil by combining the equipment with a certain item. A certain amount of experience levels are used in the process.
