Ancient Shadow armor
Ancient Shadow armor is an armor set that reproduces the pre-1.0.3 Shadow armor design, and is otherwise identical in all ways to the current Shadow armor set. Each piece is interchangeable with the equivalent Shadow armor piece, while still granting the same set bonus.
Each piece has a 1/525 (~0.19%) chance of being dropped by an Eater of Souls.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- If you mix and match the ancient set and its current counterpart, you will still get the set bonus. However, you will not get the visual trailing shadow bonus that comes with the set.
- If Ancient Shadow Armor is equipped in social slots, the after-image effect will still appear, even though you will not get the set bonus.
- If you have a decent amount of gear with a new player, you can farm Eater of Souls and skip to Shadow Armor very early on.
- Farming for Ancient Shadow Armor is much slower in a hardmode world because the spawn rate for the Eater of Souls is much lower.
