When a piece of Commander armor is worn, Minions and other players in a 2-block radius will gain a Strength I effect for 1.25 seconds- only counting down when outside the effective radius. The player themself does not gain a strength effect. Wearing more pieces of Commander armor will increase the effective radius to 4/6/8 blocks- depending on how many pieces are worn.
Wearing a full set of Commander armor will increase the level of Strength to Strength II.
Commander Armor can be obtained as a possible drop from winning the Rune Templar minigame. The armor piece obtained depends on the color of the Rune Templar:
- The Commander Helmet is dropped by the Blue Rune Templar.
- The Commander Chestplate is dropped by the Green Rune Templar.
- The Commander Leggings is dropped by the Red Rune Templar.
- The Commander Boots is dropped by the Yellow Rune Templar.
