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.

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

Best armor ever

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.

It honestly can be pretty op.

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

It's pretty good.

4 Frost Armour
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?

Great for ranged weapons

6 Platinum Armour

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

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"

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

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

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

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

Honestly...its too pro

Best armor I ios

The Contenders
11 Crimson Armour

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

12 Turtle Armor

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 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

13 Dragon Armor

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

14 Chlorophyte Armor

Like it its pretty cool

Yep this is a good one

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!

Too op please nerf.

16 Stardust Armour

Best summoner gear right?!

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

Why is it in contenders?

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

19 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!

Great for magic players

20 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.

21 Molten Armour

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

It looks cool

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 Titan Armour

Awesome for ranged class

24 Duke Fishron Wings
25 Adamantite Armor

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!

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