Turtle Armor is an armor set made up of the Turtle Helmet, Turtle Scale Mail, and Turtle Leggings. A full set grants a vastly amplified Thorns effect, which reflects full damage from melee attacks onto the attacking enemy. With no vanity items over it, a turtle shell appears on the player's back (much like the Leaf Blower, Flamethrower, Elf Melter, and Heat Ray backpacks).

Crafting this set requires a total of 54 Chlorophyte Bars (324 Chlorophyte Ore) and 3 Turtle Shells.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The set's Thorns buff will stack with the Thorns Potion.
  • As of version 1.2.3, it is no longer possible to exploit this armor's Thorns effect to quickly defeat the Dungeon Guardian, as the Guardian's attack has been reduced to 1000 while his health remains at 9999.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The passive Thorns effect can be very convenient as many enemies — especially weak ones — will deal more damage to themselves than to you, effectively killing themselves. This, when combined with a Shield for knockback immunity, sometimes allows the player to completely ignore enemies.
  • Combine with other other tanking items like the Paladin's Shield for reducing damage to your friends, Frozen Turtle Shell for extra defense in low health, and Ankh Shield which grants you immunity to most debuffs.
  • You can combine the chest piece with the Chlorophyte Mask and Hallowed Greaves for increased damage perks, but at the cost of losing the Thorns effect, the crystal leaf, and some defense.
