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

It really stinks sooo bad! I like frost armor more

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

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! - Erikelelf

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 Platinum Armour

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

7 Solar Armour

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

This is the best

For melee people, or if you are fighting swarms.

Best armor in game

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

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 - xin000

Best mage armour!

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

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

Best armor I ios

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

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

12 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

Great for battling big groups of monsters(Zombies,Slimes,etc)it has thorns effect on it

It's pretty good Isn't it



14 Chlorophyte Armor

15 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!

Your right best armor in the game here!

Very strong

Lol sarcasm!

16 Cactus Armour

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


17 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

18 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.

19 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

20 Stardust Armour

I vote for stardust armour because its epic

Best summoner gear right?!

21 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!

22 Shadow Armour

Its very good

23 Nebula Armour
24 Pearlwood Armour

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

25 Oricalcium Armor

It's so cool

26 Ancient Spectre Armour
27 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

28 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.

29 Pumpkin Armor
30 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
