Top Ten Terraria Armour Sets

A list on the best armour sets in Terraria. Keep in mind they DON'T need to have the best stats. They can be judged based on there appearance and overall usefullness in the game.

The Top Ten

1 Hallowed Armour

Armour is spelt correctly. "armor" is the American version, "armour" is the proper English version.

The armour set I have kept the longest. Cool appearance and each of the pieces of armour give a boost to the 3 main styles of fighting (Melee, Magic and ranged). Very useful whatever your playstyle. - Erikelelf

Best armor ever

Well, by the time you have enough bars to make this set, you’ve probably defeated all the mech bosses, and can go straight to turtle armor which renders this set useless

2 Meteor Armour

What idiots voted for this?! The space gun isn't even good, and even in pre hard mode you can use a mana flower to continuously refill other better weapons like water bolts and demon scythes - Thicc_Neeson

My favourite pre-hardmode armour. Quite easy to get as long as you are careful and it makes you look really cool. Gives you flame particles when walking and also makes a powerful magic gun at that point in the game cost 0 mana. - Erikelelf

It honestly can be pretty op. - Sync

What is this? Meteor Armour is bad in both pre-Hardmode and Hardmode

3 Palladium Armour

If you don't think this armour is pure badass you must be blind. The rapid healing buff it provides is a LIFESAVER! - Erikelelf

The palladium has save me a bunch

This is new to me so now i,all try this thing out in my Xbox 360. This should heal me and probably win the second hardmode boss. PLEASE BE TRUE

4 Frost Armour

I don't know why frost is on here cause frost burn effect ain't that great I've defeated every boss and it's a no no

I haven't had the full set yet but it's because I'm going to become a ice king

Very cool armour that gives you the buff frostburn. - Erikelelf

If you can get this armor before you kill a single mech boss (i did it in a ranged play thogh once) you will be super powerful and it can last you untile plantara (by then you should switch to turle if you are a meeler)

5 Shroomite Armour

Who knew mushrooms were so powerful and made you look like a robot? - Erikelelf

Great for ranged weapons

It's the best and it looks like a blue version of ironman

Best armour!

6 Solar Armour

Looked cool, gives like 105 defense, and flows bright orange. What's better than that?

Pared with the Solar eruption is can be op... to anything...

Like, actually anything that isn't named "Dungeon Guardian" - Sync

This is the best

The helmet kind of reminds me of Shovel Knight.
Oh yeah, and the fact that it's a set of armor made out of the fragments of the solar tower.
If someone hits you and is under-equipped, well, let's just say they're not coming back.

7 Platinum Armour

Looks really cool.

The coolest looking pre-hardmode armour you can get in my opinion. Quite hard to make though. - Erikelelf

8 Spectre Armour

Coolest out of all the end game armours though they aren't that useful since you've beaten all the bosses. - Erikelelf

Coolest armour, especially the hooded version. Decent defense, and life steal effect.

I think spectral Armor is good is if you like to use mana and the defense is decent.

Nah I don't like magic armor

9 Beetle Armor

Pretty op but it is hard to get when you have not disabled traps and it kills you when you are getting it

Beetle is the best in mobile version

Op and it spawns little beetles which are so cute

This is one of the three armor sets I've ever worn

10 Silver Armour

One of the first armours you can get that will take a lot of mining. Helmet is very cool. - Erikelelf


The Contenders

11 Crimson Armour

Really good especially if you have defeated the brains of cthulu a few times in a crimson world that will give you around 150 ore I did it twice and had two stacks of bars so I recommend going for this is you are fairly new with at least gold set

Great life regen and strikes fear into the hearts of your enemies. - Erikelelf

12 Dragon Armor

This defense is right behind beetle armor plus much more melee stats

It's pretty good Isn't it



13 Turtle Armor

I love the thorns ability lots of armor but not as much as some other sets

I think it's the best it makes you look like a tank and great protection

I like turtles

I nearly killed scelotron prime
HE HAD 1 health

14 Chlorophyte Armor

Yep this is a good one

The green petals really help me kill bosses

Like it its pretty cool

Op for life

15 Stardust Armour

I vote for stardust armour because its epic

(Plus the Stardust Dragon thing is AMAZING)

Best summoner gear right?!

16 Wooden Armour

I just love this armor. It aids me in all my boss fights, even the moon lord! It has such great defense no matter what prefix- even BROKEN wooden armor is amazing! I feel sorry for those who don't have this amazing item, I wish everyone could share the great experience those with wooden armor could. People who can't are really missing out!

This and a wooden sword lets you kill the moon lord in 2 ticks

Too op please nerf. - Sync

Lol sarcasm!

17 Cactus Armour

Usually the first armour set I get. Really easy to get and makes you look like a juggernaut. - Erikelelf

Looks cool... But that's just about it really. - Sync


18 Vortex Armor

Best armour for ranged class just combine it with phantasm and you will become a lunar archer

Vortex armor is second best armour in the game.(PC). It can be double tap DOWN to toggle stealth, increasing ranged ability and reducing chance for enemies to target you but slowing movement speed. Defense total are 62. If plus all accessories with warding will be at 90 or 95. Using ironskin potion and food for improving minor to all stats

love it

19 Molten Armour

This armour is cool looking I have the full set with all the tools as well

Cool,but the mask looks a bit weird

I have the molten armor ithe is the best prehardmode armor I play on xbox 360 and it's so easy to get

20 Spectral Armor

Very useful in Console, as it outperforms Spectre armor, and gives you great damage, defense, mana amount, and mana use reduction. This is a need for mages, and when you combine it with a blizzard staff, which you can have hogh damage, and use it for a long time because of Mana amount and mana use reduction.

It gives you tons of extra mana and other awesome magic bonuses.

21 Nebula Armour

Great for magic players

22 Solar Flare Armour

Because It's So amazing and beautiful its solar flare helmet had a 24 defense and his solar flare breastplate had 34 defense and solar flare leggings had 20 defense

It is of course the best armour even does the best melee armour is weaker than the last prism I don't play pc version but I have knowledge. The best thing is that you can dash with it and the time when enemy touch you they get burn

It has the most defense ever! OPP!

23 Shadow Armour

Its very good

24 Adamantite Armor

Dye it solar colored, and you look like a boss

Adamantite armor is great when fighting the destroyer. It puts your defense up and

I vote for adamtite because it's strong helps your melee damage I recommend this if you use melee weapons. I use it because with all my accesorys it gives me 60 defense hope this helps!

25 Titan Armour

Awesome for ranged class

26 Pumpkin Armor
27 Oricalcium Armor

It's so cool

28 Ancient Spectre Armour


29 Pearlwood Armour

TOO OP please re-logic nerf. - Sync

SUPER STRONG, this is like end game stuff, wood armor is already op enough and this upgrades wood! THis armor is super OP, the OPNESS is real for pearlwood and this armor just carries me through all my boss fights, this armor gives you melee, ranged, and mana/Mage class, VOTE FOR THIS, BECAUSE THIS IS OPNESS! THIS TRUMPS ALL

30 Titanium Armour

Tin armor beating titanium. What is this

So good, it’s the best ore you can get from a demon alter


31 Necro Armour

It gives great ranged bonuses and good defense.

32 Tin Armour

So good

33 Terrible Armor



34 Gold Armor
35 Shadow Armor
36 Nebula Armor

I love the way this looks, and it happends to be the best mafe armor in the game. It also drops buffs whenever you attack enemies. Does require beating Moon Lord, though.

37 Orichicum Armor

It may be pink but it gives a lot of defense (46 defense)

Flower pedals can help you defeat possesed armor and other post-hardmode enemies
