Top Ten Terraria Armor Sets

A list on the best armor sets in Terraria. Keep in mind they DON'T need to have the best stats. They can be judged based on their appearance and overall usefulness in the game.
The Top Ten
1 Hallowed Armour

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.

I really like this armor. In early hardmode it was pretty useful. I also really like how it looks lol.

Bull nebula or solar should be here

Ummm are you judging these by looks or by how good they are?

2 Meteor Armour

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.

Acceptable since meteor armour gives infinite mana to the space gun and generally easy to get since it can be made as the 3rd armour set

It honestly can be pretty op.

Awesome armor

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!

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

The palladium has save me a bunch

It's pretty good.

4 Frost Armour

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.

Frostburn is op

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

5 Shroomite Armour

It's the best armour in mobile edition of terraria shroomite armour+megashark=0P great armour should be top of the list instead of hallow!

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

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

Great for ranged weapons

6 Platinum Armour

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

Molten armor looks cooler

Looks really cool.

7 Solar Armour

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.

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

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

Why is this only 15? It gives you the most defense out of any armour sets, and is the best set for melee players. -'astroshark

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

8 Spectre Armour

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

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.

Spectre armour is OP-especially against the pumpkin moon and frost moon

9 Silver Armour

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

10 Beetle Armor

Beetle armor is really good because with the full set all damage is redused by 45%

Op and it spawns little beetles which are so cute

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

It reduces damage by 25% and has loads of defense.

The Contenders
11 Crimson Armour

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

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

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 reccomend this for melee or ranged, I'm in the stage of pre-plantera. Plus I almost defeated plantera... I wonder whats missing...

I like turtles

14 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

I love it when people do sarcasm on bad items

Your right best armor in the game here!

15 Chlorophyte Armor

The green petals really help me kill bosses

Like it its pretty cool

Yep this is a good one

Op for life

16 Stardust Armour

I vote for stardust armour because its epic

Best summoner gear right?!

(Plus the Stardust Dragon thing is AMAZING)

17 Cactus Armour

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

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

18 Vortex Armor

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

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

Why is it in contenders?

You can go invinsible

19 Solar Flare Armour

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

This should at least be in the top ten. I use this set personally and I really like it.

It's the top armour its defense is really good

It has the most defense ever! OPP!

20 Nebula Armour

Pair it with mana cuffs, a mana flower and a weapon like the last prism or the nebula weapons (Or even Betsy's Wrath! ), and you become nothing short of a god

Armor can be made by moon lord are the best!

Shout out to my fellow mages

Great for magic players

21 Molten Armour

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

It looks cool

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

22 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.

23 Duke Fishron Wings
24 Titan Armour

Awesome for ranged class

25 Shadow Armour

Its very good
