These stats are for unarmored players. Anything in your hand besides what is listed (and a pickaxe which is a waste of ingots/cobblestone for pvp) will deal a half a heart of damage. The power of swords is as follows: Gold, Wood, Stone, Iron, Diamond. Gold does 2 hearts as does wood, but wood lasts 2x longer. Stone only does a healf a heart better then gold and wood, but does a half a heart worse then iron. Diamond is the best option at 3 and a half hearts and has 1562 uses. I've seen many people saying that gold is better then stone. This is NOT true The strength of armor is as follows: Leather, Gold, Chain, Iron, Diamond. Gold is only slightly worse then chain, but a lot better then leather. The gold helm has the same protective power as a chain helm, but will be destroyed quickly. Iron slightly worse then diamond, about 2 and a half armor points. The power of axes are as follows: Wood, Gold, Stone, Iron, Diamond A diamond axe will do as much damage as an iron sword. An iron axe will be found in chests and deals 2 and a half hearts of damage, the same as a stone sword. Wooden and gold axes will do 1 and a half hearts, while stone will deal 2. Shovels (not usually considered weapons but who cares) damage are as follows: Wood, Gold, Stone, Iron, Diamond. Diamond does only 2 hearts, making it not a effective weapon, save for 2 diamonds. Iron shovels will do 1 and a half and stone will do 1. Wood and gold are once again even at a mere half a heart, THE SAME AS FISTS! D: Bow damage: A really weak shot will do 1 heart to an unarmored opponent. A medium shot willl deal 3 hearts or damage. A fully charged shot will deal an amazing 5 hearts. 1 and a half more then a diamond sword. Hopefully this helps.
