Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Ancient Gold Helmet has the same sprite that the Gold Helmet had before 1.0.3, thus the term "Ancient".
- The Ancient Gold Helmet is available even if a world generated with Platinum Ore. However, obtaining a Gold armor set to complete its set bonus is much harder in this case.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Due to its high ore requirement and relatively low defense, it is advisable to skip Gold armor. The next tier of armor is usually available before the player can get enough Gold to craft the armor set.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Prior to 1.3, if the Frost Breastplate and Leggings were paired with a Gold Helmet, and all pieces were dyed with Blue Flame and Black Dye, it would cause an afterimage and pulsing aura, akin to Hallowed armor. This was the armor Red used to wear before his specific set was added.
