Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The total bonus to max number of sentries is +2, allowing 3 to be summoned at once without other upgrades.
  • The attack speed and critical strike portions of this armor only apply to melee attacks.
  • The Monk armor and Squire armor both provide melee benefits. While the Squire armor has a higher melee crit increase, the Monk armor's increased melee speed means that (especially against enemies with low defense) it does more damage overall. The Squire armor has more defense and a higher regeneration rate to compensate.
  • The Monk armor is a powerful armor against the mechanical bosses (once you've defeated one to get it) and Plantera. Its bonuses are better than Hallowed armor, and having multiple Spider Queen or Lightning Aura sentries makes the fight much easier.
