Smithing templates are a set of 12 items that customize armor and upgrade diamond armor to netherite armor.
Smithing templates can be found in various structures and can be duplicated using seven diamonds and a item based on the template.
Elder guardians have a 20% chance to drop 1 tide armor trim upon death. Looting doesn't affect the drop rate.
Some of the armor trims feature patterns based on a mob or block that is found in the same structure as the corresponding smithing template.
Some of the armor trims reflect the place where you found the template, for example bastions contain a piglin-inspired trim.
