I never liked the fact that there's such a huge gap between iron and diamond armours. So Blaze Armour now fills that gap! It sits right in the middle of those, with the same enchantability of Chain Armour.
And yes those rods do spin around you just like they do with Blazes.
This armour does not like water. If you go in water with it it will break very quickly!
You can get around that by enchanting it with Imperviousness (if you have Gany's End installed)
Now use those ingots in the old armour recipes fashion:)
