The addition of the Turtle Helmet was a genius move not only with how it is uniquely obtained but also the benefits it provides. I find myself wearing turtle helmets more than just basic full set due to its utility as opposed to toughing it out in 1 set and never touching anything else. A common tactic Id use against others is to play dead when I am outgeared and pretend to have dropped my items while sneaking underwater with respiration turtle helmet. Tactics like this are not possible with other armors unless you use potions. They take the bait and the decoy items while I can continue to run to find better items. Golden armor having a use in being ignored by Piglins was another great incentive.
I decided to put this in the Experimental due to this both affecting vanilla PVE & PVP.
I propose there be more sidegrade armor peices / weapons or potential sets to help diversify or vary peoples choice in armor instead of everyone opting to always wear maxed out netherite and diamond gear (even though netherite provides minor knockback resistance).
