Necro Armor is a post-Skeletron armor set consisting of the Necro Helmet, Necro Breastplate, and Necro Greaves. Crafting a full set requires a total of 135 Cobwebs and 150 Bones.

The Ancient Necro Helmet is a rare drop from Angry Bones and Dark Casters in the Dungeon, with a ~0.22% (1/450) chance of dropping. It is functionally identical to the Necro Helmet, and the two helmets are interchangeable with no bonus loss.

A full set grants a basic 16 defense and a 20% chance to not consume ammo. In addition, each piece increases ranged damage by 5%, increasing ranged damage by a total of 15%. It is currently the only ranged-specific pre-Hardmode armor set, and provides the highest offensive bonuses for the class prior to Hardmode.

If the full suit is worn, the player leaves an afterimage while running (just like full Shadow armor). In addition, the sound the player makes when taking certain types of damage will be the same as for a Skeleton.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Ancient Necro Helmet has the same sprite as the Necro Helmet had before 1.0.3, thus the phrase "Ancient" in it.
  • On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and 3DS version 3DS version, the Ancient Necro Helmet has 1% less damage than the Necro Helmet, making it inferior, so it is recommended to be used for vanity in these versions.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The set bonus stacks with other ammo conservation bonuses. When used with the Megashark, it produces a 60% chance to not consume ammo. Furthermore, using the Ammo Box from the Traveling Merchant will result in a 68% chance not to consume ammo. If an Ammo Reservation Potion is then used, the player's chance not to consume ammo amounts to 74.4%, meaning only approximately every fourth shot consumes a bullet.
  • Given both cobwebs and bones in surplus, making Necro Helmets is the most profitable way of monetizing either of them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The term "necro" comes from the Ancient Greek word νεκρός (nekrós, "dead").
  • It is the only armor set in the game of a Rarity level: 2 rarity.
