Vortex armor is a post-Moon Lord set of armor that provides ranged weapon boosts. It is currently the best ranged armor set available on the Desktop Version Desktop version and Console Version Console versions. Crafting the full set requires a total of 36 Luminite Bars (144 Luminite) and 45 Vortex Fragments.

In total, Vortex armor pieces apply the following boosts:

Additionally, equipping a full set grants the player the ability to toggle stealth mode, which has the following effects:

  • Near-invisibility
  • Decreased chance that enemies will target the wearer
  • +80% ranged damage
  • +20% ranged critical strike chance
  • Decreased movement speed
Unlike Shroomite armor, standing still is not required. The Vortex armor's stealth mode is instead toggled manually by double-tapping the key. Moving or grappling does not cancel the effect, and its boosts are applied to all ranged weapon types (unlike Shroomite armor, which requires switching headpieces for different ranged weapon types). Dashing with items such as the Shield of Cthulhu or Tabi, or riding a Mount will cancel stealth mode.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All armors made from Luminite currently have no sell value. This is likely to change in a future patch.
  • The in-game control settings allow you to switch the set bonus trigger key from to .
  • Like all armors made from Luminite, equipping vortex armor makes the player give off light, in this case teal. Light radius increases with amount of pieces equipped.
  • While in Stealth mode, you are unaffected by speed boosts granted by accessories and potion effects, except the running ability of Hermes Boots.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Stealth mode is not broken through use of wings; this includes the high-speed hovering ability of accessories such as the Hoverboard, Betsy's WingsDesktop Version, Nebula MantleDesktop VersionConsole Version or Vortex BoosterDesktop VersionConsole Version. Equipping one of these can offer good mobility while in stealth mode.
  • If wearing Hermes Boots or a derivative, running takes significantly longer to start while in stealth mode. This can be avoided by grappling to something and releasing before reaching the target, providing enough speed to begin running immediately upon touching the ground.
  • Entering stealth mode while already running with Hermes Boots will not cause them to decelerate, keeping you at top speed.
