Terraria has 4 major classes: melee, ranger, mage and summoner. Some armor sets provide bonuses to those specific classes, such as the Necro armor, which boosts ranged damage. As you progress through the game, more armor options become available, some of which are better than others. These are lists of armor progression for each class.
