Armor

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Armor is a set of equippable 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.

Each piece of armor has a defense statistic that reduces inflicted damage by half its value, rounded up. For example, a full set of Copper armor provides a total of 6 defense, reducing damage by 3 points. Silver armor has a total of 13 defense, reducing damage by 7 points, after having been rounded up. An attack cannot be reduced to zero; all attacks will always deal at least 1 damage, regardless of the quality of a player's armor.

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, Iron, Silver, Gold, Tin, Lead, Tungsten and Platinum), this is an additional defense bonus. More advanced or unique Armors can provide other specialized set bonuses.

Several accessories, like the Shackle, can also add to the player's overall Defense.

Overview[edit]

Notes[edit]

  • There is a total of 49 types of armor (not including helmet variations). 45/42/42 (PC, Console, Mobile) With helmet variations, there are 72 armor sets. 69/65/65.
  • 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 and don't have fancy effects, they often give better bonuses (e.g. Cobalt Melee Set is still the second best melee speed armor only bested by the Hallowed Melee Set).
  • The hardmode ore, hallow and chlorophyte helmet variants sell for more than their respective set due to that helmet holding the certain capabilities (Example MELEE holds most defense and all melee modifiers).
