Gold armor is the fourth armor set in the game. It takes a total of 90 Gold Bars to craft a full suit. This adds up to 360 Gold Ore for the full set of Gold armor.

It consists of a Gold Helmet, Gold Chainmail and Gold Greaves.

The Ancient Gold Helmet is a rare drop from Skeletons in the Underground, and is functionally identical to the Gold Helmet. The two helmets are interchangeable, with no bonus loss.

A full set grants a basic 13 defense plus a set bonus of 3 defense, which equals a total of 16 defense.

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.
