Molten armor is an Armor set consisting of the Molten Helmet, Molten Breastplate, and Molten Greaves. It is known for having highest defense out of all the pre-hardmode armors in the game, but it is also one of the most difficult to obtain.
It takes a total of 45 Hellstone Bars to craft a full set of Molten armor, or 135 Hellstone and 45 Obsidian.
A full set grants 25 base defense, plus 17% increased melee damage. If the full set is visible, it will leave a fire trail similar to that of the Meteor armor. However, Molten Armor leaves slightly more fire particles.
