Crystal Assassin armor is a Hardmode armor set which consists of the Crystal Assassin Hood, Crystal Assassin Shirt, and the Crystal Assassin Pants. The armor set grants non-class-specific bonuses. It is obtained from Queen Slime; she always drops one piece / two pieces upon defeat.

  • Due to its respectable defense and stat bonuses, this is a viable alternative to Hardmode ore sets, especially for those who do not wish to grind for resources. However, mixed sets have more damage.
  • It works well with the Nimbus Rod, Clinger Staff, and Queen Spider Staff since it boosts their damage output without sacrificing bonuses to melee or ranged weapons.
  • In Classic Mode, Crystal Assassin armor's dash is the only dash effect that is accessible before defeating Plantera.
  • In Expert Mode, the dash may be used as a replacement for the Shield of Cthulhu, freeing up an accessory slot.
  • The dash provided by Crystal Assassin armor is often better than the Shield of Cthulhu's dash, since it covers a greater distance and will not be interrupted by contact with an enemy if a Cobalt Shield is equipped. There are many situations where accidentally bumping into an enemy can be extremely undesirable, notably when fighting Plantera or Skeletron Prime. However, it should be noted that this also makes dashes potentially riskier in other situations, as dashing into an enemy will no longer provide the player with invincibility frames.
