Shadow armor in action.

Shadow armor is an armor set that consists of the Shadow Helmet, Shadow Scalemail, and Shadow Greaves. The individual pieces provide a total of 19 defense, equal to its Crimson counterpart, Crimson armor. Wearing a full set additionally grants a set bonus of +15% movement speed. Each individual piece also grants a +7% boost to melee attack speed.

Wearing a full set causes the player to display an afterimage effect during motion (similar to Necro armor), and emits shadow particles. Also, the Rocket Boots and many weapons will emit purple flames (this does not occur with Spectre Boots).

Crafting a full set requires a total of 60 Demonite Bars (240 Demonite Ore) and 45 Shadow Scales. Defeating the Eater of Worlds twice can provide enough to craft a full set.

Shadow armor pieces are interchangeable with pieces from the Ancient Shadow armor set, while still providing the same 15% increased movement speed set bonus, but not the afterimage effect.
