Top Ten Terraria Armour SetsA 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
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.
Armour is spelt correctly. "armor" is the American version, "armour" is the proper English version.
Bull nebula or solar should be here
Ummm are you judging these by looks or by how good they are?
Both, it would be kinda boring if we were just judging it from stats because everyone would vote for the most powerful armour in the game.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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?
The coolest looking pre-hardmode armour you can get in my opinion. Quite hard to make though.
Molten armor looks cooler
Looks really cool.
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
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.
One of the first armours you can get that will take a lot of mining. Helmet is very cool.
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
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
This defense is right behind beetle armor plus much more melee stats
It's pretty good Isn't it
The green petals really help me kill bosses
Like it its pretty cool
Yep this is a good one
Op for life
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!
I vote for stardust armour because its epic
Best summoner gear right?!
(Plus the Stardust Dragon thing is AMAZING)
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.
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
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
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's the top armour its defense is really good
It has the most defense ever! OPP!
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
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
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.
Awesome for ranged class
Its very good
