The set consists of the Dark Artist's Hat, Dark Artist's Robe and Dark Artist's Leggings. Wearing the full set increases the attack range of Flameburst sentry summons by 50%, allowing them to attack up to 84 blocks away. It also increases projectile velocity by 40% and increases the field of view significantly.

A full set of Dark Artist armor will provide the following stats:

  • +42 defense
  • +25% magic damage
  • +60% minion damage
  • +25% magic critical strike chance
  • +3 extra sentry slots

The Dark Artist armor set is an upgrade of the Apprentice armor set.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The total bonus to max number of sentries is +3, allowing 4 to be summoned at once.
  • The Dark Artist's Leggings offer the highest increase to magic DPS for the leg slot.
  • The hat and robes give off a small amount of light.
  • Its male and female variants look identical.
  • Desktop version If the player has the Brain of Confusion equipped along with Dark Artist set, it will have a different dodge effect, showing blue flames rather than brains.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This set has the same defense as Spectre armor with the mask option, increases magic damage by a larger percentage, and has almost double the increase in magic critical hit percentage. It does not share the Spectre set's set bonuses; however, the extra slots and bonuses to the Flameburst sentry summons allow it to place 4 powerful sentries at once. This is especially useful in arenas for boss fights, with the set bonus allowing the Flameburst sentries to attack from far away.
  • The Dark Artist set's emphasis on sentries and minions make it better suited to a cautious play style. Players that have difficulty attacking while kiting bosses with Spectre armor may find this easier.
  • The Dark Artist's leggings give a 25% magical critical hit boost, making them excellent for hybrid sets.
