Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop version The decently high drop chance, useful set bonus, and defense on par with Gold armor could make this set a good alternative to Gold/ Platinum armor in Pre-Hardmode. Hoplites deal high damage, but can also be stunlocked relatively easily, and in addition to the armor they can drop Javelins.
    • Desktop version The Gladiator armor can be particularly useful for melee players due to its high defense and complete immunity to knockback.
  • Console VersionMobile version Due to the danger of Hoplites and the low drop chance of its pieces, this armor set is unlikely to be better than other armor available to the player by the time they have obtained it. However, it can still be valuable as vanity armor.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being named after the people who fought in the Colosseum in ancient Rome, the Gladiator armor visually resembles the armor of hoplites (a type of soldier in ancient Greece) whom the enemies that drop it are named after as well.
