All of the armor defense values are listed here, and that's great, but some of the armor set pages don't even list their defense. Defense should probably be included in the armor piece infobox template as well.

Add the suggestion to the Template Talk:Item infobox discussion :D -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 14:48, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure where, but someone should put the defense formula somewhere. (Defense / 2 = Damage Reduction (Rounded up to nearest whole #)) Reed501 19:45, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Merge[edit source]

Oppose Defense is a stat, Armor is an item class. -Shadowclaimer 19:43, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Agree There's no reason to maintain two separate, nearly identical tables here. I'd rather have one nice page. --Theothersteve7 20:24, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Personally, I'm opposed to the merge, mostly b/c I don't think that the table on Defense is really appropriate there. It's collecting too much information that should be elsewhere. --JonTheMon 20:26, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
I could see that. I'd agree with nuking that table. On the other hand, the Defense page is pretty weak on its own without it. --Theothersteve7 20:38, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
Well, for the Defense page, you can keep the table but condense a lot of the info. Just keep 2 fields: Set/Accessory and Total defense. --JonTheMon 20:47, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
How about we merge the Defense page with the Player Stats page? --Theothersteve7 03:46, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
I disagree, b/c it's a separate concept that has enough content for its own page. --JonTheMon 04:25, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
Oppose; As it is, I'd nuke the table. I think the defense page is still a stub, in the sense that I'm sure a lot more could be said about it... happypal (talk • contribs) 06:43, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
I oppose the merge, and the nuking of the table. Providing the stats of the armor in this consolidated way provides a good, quick resource for players. As it is, the Defense page is describing a game mechanic while this is providing specific item stats. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 06:51, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
I think i like the idea of keeping the table on the Defense page but reducing it to 2 fields as proposed by JonTheMon. Then we can add a link to the Armor page, for more detailed information. Also the Defense pages improved a lot since I proposed the merge. I also understand now that Defense is about the concept and Armor is about items, so we should not merge the pages. Yet, this differentiation is only meaningful, if we remove the item details from Defense. --Yoda 11:40, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
Why? There is information on the Defense page that covers more than simply armor, and there is information on the Armor page that covers more than simply Defense. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 16:27, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Anomaly[edit source]

The anomaly is a run-on. I don't get what it's saying. Could someone make it clearer? --NullTalk 03:09, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Wear Molten/Meteor suit on vanity,it gives off light and the particles.--MadPedro 01:39, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
I believe that the part on armour effects not being displayed if vanity being worn should be placed in notes, as I would not consider it a bug, I think it is meant to happen. non-registered user : Nikolai5 01/01/2012 (GMT)
You're right Nikolai5, that anomaly is extremely outdated. --Moxxy 19:45, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Listing buy-only armor such as Mining Helmet[edit source]

Should be listed here. Its even equippable on mannequin dammit.

Female Armor[edit source]

"Simple" addon: We need to put in female armor spirites. Thats all.--MadPedro 17:57, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

I made this table[edit source]

Maybe we could work something out of it. Like writing on each of them which one is the best at this or that or which ones are only second. Because I feel a lot of people think the three new hardmode ore armors are better than the three old ones when it's not entirely true. Fegazeus (talk) 13:26, 13 November 2013 (UTC)


Style suggestion[edit source]

I think would be nice to display "row border lines" between several lines. The reason is that, when multiple lines are present in the same row, it is difficult to understand to which row it belongs.

example: Types of pressure plates table 08:23, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

I have appilied what you requested. This makes it easier to read the content. Thanks! User:Zdroid9770/Sig1 09:14, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
this has opened a new problem as the border lines are now being counted as independent sortable data, sorting the table causes a pileup at the top of the chart. 17:53, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
I've disabled sorting for now. I'll look into actually fixing the table later, but having it sortable doesn't seem like that high a priority, and it's a fairly lengthy and tedious task. For now this should stop the problem from appearing, at least, as the major problem is that you can't resort the table into its original form without reloading the page.

Needs Stronger armor[edit source]

I think I need stronger armor, Turtle armor is just too weak! Some enemies can still deal 100+ damage to people wearing turtle armor (e.g. Red Devil). 09:14, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

The Turtle Armor is the strongest set of armor, but you can improve it a little bit by swapping the Turtle Helmet with the Chlorophyte Mask which will give you 4 more points of armor. Then if you have a full set of warding accessories, with the Paladin's Shield, Ankh Shield, Celestial Stone and buffs like Well Fed and Ironskin, you can't go further in defense. But remember this : the best defense in Terraria is and always will be mobility (and lifesteal can help a lot but you can't tank very well with lifesteal alone anymore). Red Devil is one of the few enemies that are meant to deal tons of damage even if you wear good armor. Just learn to dodge its projectiles or simply don't go to the Underworld layer (you don't need to go there anymore if you already have the Turtle Armor obviously). ---- Fegazeus (talk) 16:27, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

"wizard set" and non-set armor[edit source]

I added sections for the "Wizard Set" (hats and robes) and the few bits of armor that aren't part of anything. I realize that means further duplication with the Defense page, but I figure this page is called Armor not Armor Sets so there's no reason they shouldn't be listed here. BlueMana (talk) 19:56, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Fossil armor[edit source]

Fossil armor needs to be added. I dont know how to properly edit to do it myself and im afraid ill mess up.


Same with ninja armor, which is now also a set with throwing bonus.

Gladiator armor[edit source]

Gladiator armor needs to be added as well.


Updated table[edit source]

I've updated Fegazeus' table to version 1.3. What do you think? Any objection to posting it?


Morenohijazo (talk) 20:38, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Large, multiple page images generally make wiki pages complicated. I realize it's not exactly an easy task for many users, but I think that if this were to be used, it'd be best as a table on its own page. Then it would have the same ability to be scaled and edited as the rest of the wiki. Gearzein (talk) 23:26, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
OK. Here's the Excel file I used to make the image, in case anyone wants to use it to make an improved version: https://mega.nz/#!qAMGmapb!yiulX9QDQWeRPZw0D5MhddKw6FjkRTeRgK9IfKL0gJg Morenohijazo (talk) 19:43, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
I made an other version, with few changes(the color of the armors->the rarity color of the armor, ninja and fossil armor are now referred as throwing, added the forbidden armor, angler armor and mining armor are now "misc" armors instead of "basic". Everyone can also modify it online, because I put it on Google Sheet : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Wod3Z41j7oDbxQw2BAxy7-DKBAM9tRnpxtd1xcSBpuk --Lightg4 (talk) 20:42, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Number of Armor[edit source]

The Wiki has that there are 67 armor sets on desktop but if you count them there are only 64. So, before an edit, wanted to check to see if I'm missing something that is being counted or not —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rajwarrior (talkcontribs) at 04:35, 16 August 2018

Counted and confirmed. Feel free to edit. And anyway, if you count the 2 Robes sets, that's 66. (remember to put the "~" four times next time) Murrayzero (talk) 12:49, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for double checking. Sorry about missing the sig. Wasn't thinking. Rajwarrior (talk) 13:17, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Mixed Armour Sets[edit source]

Values don't seem to add up.

It says that a Hallowed Mask, a Turtle Scale Mail, and Hallowed Greaves is 62 Defense, +18% melee damage, +18% melee critical chance, and +10% melee speed.

By my math it is 62 Defense, +7% Damage, +8% Crit, +18% melee damage, +18% melee critical chance, and +10% melee speed.

Further, it says that a Chlorophyte Mask, a Turtle Scale Mail, Hallowed Greaves is 63 Defense, +28% melee damage, +14% melee critical chance, +7% Damage, and +8% critical chance.

However, it's only 58 Defense and 24% melee damage.

Any idea what I'm missing?
