Mining armor is an armor set consisting of the Mining Helmet, Mining Shirt and Mining Pants. The Mining Helmet alone provides light when worn in the armor slot, but not when worn in the vanity slot. Each piece grants 1 defense, for a total of 3 with the full set. A full set also provides a set bonus of 30% increased mining speed.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Mining armor is most valuable for digging tunnels, especially with smart cursor enabled.
  • Using the Picksaw/Shroomite Digging Claw/Luminite Pickaxes along with the mining armor is the best for digging hellshafts/hellevators, mainly because of their speed.
  • Using Mining Potion along with the mining armor makes digging a lot faster, as the mining bonuses stack.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.2: Wearing the full set now gives 30% increased mining speed, up from 20%.
  • Desktop 1.1: Pants and Shirt introduced. When worn with the Mining Helmet, a set bonus provides 20% mining speed increase.
