Boy, that sun is hot! I do have some perfectly ventilated armor.

Not to be confused with Defense, a damage reduction statistic.

Armor is a set of equipable defense items that reduce damage taken from enemies and most other damage sources. Armor pieces are equipped by placing them in the armor slots of the player's inventory. Armor can also be placed in vanity slots to change the player's appearance without affecting stats. Armor pieces are either crafted, purchased from NPCs, or dropped from enemies.

Each piece of armor has a defense statistic that reduces inflicted damage by half / 75% / all its value, rounded up. For example, a full set of Copper armor provides a total of 6 defense, reducing damage by 3 / 5 / 6 points. Silver armor grants a total of 13 defense, reducing damage by 7 / 10 / 13 points, after having been rounded up. An attack cannot normally be reduced to zero; all attacks will always deal at least 1 damage (or 2 damage for a critical hit), regardless of the quality of a player's armor. The only times an attack can do 0 damage is if the player has invincibility for whatever reason or there is another player on the same team with the Paladin's Shield equipped and the attack does 1 damage normally.

In addition to the defense provided by individual armor pieces, most armor types provide a Set Bonus when all three pieces of the same armor type are worn simultaneously. For the basic pre-Hardmode ore armors (Copper through Platinum), this is an additional defense bonus. More advanced or unique armors can provide other specialized set bonuses (e.g., the Shroomite armor will provide invisibility when not moving).

Over all platforms, there are 35 different armor sets obtainable in pre-Hardmode; 35 different armor sets obtainable in Hardmode; 8 robes and 2 wizard hats that give additional buffs; and 12 miscellaneous armor pieces.

For a sortable list of raw stats on all individual armor pieces as of 1.4.4.9(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), see Armor stat table.

Notes

  • The chestplate on each armor set changes with the gender of the character, with the female breastplate often having an exposed cleavage, stomach or both. This is a purely visual change and does not decrease defense.
  • In total, there are Desktop versionConsole versionMobile version 65 / Old-gen console version 44 / Nintendo 3DS version 40 armor sets. Out of these, Desktop versionConsole versionMobile version 33 / Old-gen console version 27 / Nintendo 3DS version 24 are available pre-Hardmode and Desktop versionConsole versionMobile version 32 / Old-gen console version 17 / Nintendo 3DS version 16 are Hardmode-exclusive.
  • If armor pieces are placed into accessory slots using third-party tools, they will not give their defense and stat buffs.
  • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) The ancient armor pieces are shown in the inventory to be facing to the left instead of the right.

Tips

  • The default Hardmode ore armors (Cobalt, Mythril, and Adamantite) are often mistaken as direct downgrades to the others (Palladium, Orichalcum, and Titanium). Though it is true they all have lower armor value (except for Adamantite) and do not have fancy effects, they often give better, more class-specific bonuses (e.g. Cobalt Melee Set is still the second-best melee speed armor only bested by the Adamantite Melee Set). The default Hardmode ore armors also do not require as many bars to create, making swift progression easier.
  • For most Hardmode armors with helmet variants, the helmets sell for more than other pieces of their respective sets, despite needing fewer bars to make. This is due to the helmet carrying class-specific bonuses or other special abilities. For example, the melee helmet of such sets will hold melee modifiers and a disproportionate share of defense.

Mixed armor sets

While set bonuses are a strong incentive to use a matched set, there are many cases where the powers of individual pieces can be combined usefully, especially late in the game. Particularly versatile pieces include the Valhalla Knight's Breastplate for its health regeneration. Some examples include:

  • The Turtle chest piece can be combined with the Hallowed or Chlorophyte Mask and Hallowed Greaves for massively increased melee damage, but at the cost of losing the 15% damage reduction, the Thorns effect, a bit of defense, and most of the aggro increasing effect. With the Hallowed Mask, this nets a defense of 62 (compared with 65 for the full set of Turtle armor), +18% melee damage, +18% melee critical chance, and +10% melee speed.
    • With the Chlorophyte Mask instead, the defense goes down to 58 and the melee damage bonus rises to +28%, but the melee critical chance bonus drops to +14% and the melee speed bonus is lost. Either way, the wearer gets another +7% for all damage and +8% movement speed.
    • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) Doing this with the Valhalla Knight's Breastplate instead, gets another 3 points of defense, the regeneration, and a +30% bonus to summon damage, at the cost of some of the melee bonuses (leaving +10% or +20% damage, +10% or +6% critical chance).
  • The combination of the Chlorophyte Helmet and Shroomite Breastplate (or in the endgame, Vortex Breastplate) provides more ammo reduction than any set bonus. (See Sandgun for further discussion.)
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) A regenerative melee/summoner set consisting of the Chlorophyte Mask, Valhalla Knight's Breastplate, and Valhalla Knight's Greaves provides +16% melee damage, +26% melee critical strike chance, +30% movement speed, +50% summon damage, and +8 health/second regeneration.
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) For rangers, if the set bonus for Shroomite armor is not needed, the chest piece can be swapped with the Valhalla Knight's Breastplate for the regeneration.
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) For magic users, Hallowed Headgear, Valhalla Knight's Breastplate, and Dark Artist's Leggings grants +100 mana capacity, +12% magic damage, +37% magic critical strike chance, +50% summon damage, and +8 health/second regeneration.
