Metallic armor is a more effective preventive measure to take up against nonbenders who practice conventional weapon fighting or chi blocking. Against the bending arts, metal is very susceptible to attacks, especially since the practice of metalbending is more commonplace among earthbenders. The effects of bending on the physical properties of metal are endless. For instance, waterbenders could restrict movement by freezing the metal, earthbenders could crush the armor with earth, firebenders ciuld heat the metal, and airbenders could use strong gusts of wind to throw a combatant against a solid surface.
