Molten armor is an Armor set consisting of the Molten Helmet, Molten Breastplate, and Molten Greaves. It is known for having the highest defense out of all the Pre-Hardmode armors in the game, but it is also one of the most difficult to obtain in the game in Pre-Hardmode.

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
  • 17% increased melee damage
  • Desktop version 7% increased melee speed
  • Desktop version 7% critical strike chance
  • Desktop version Immunity to the On Fire! debuff
  • 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.
