January 21, 2021 We’ve added a bunch more crafted sets! Stay tuned for the full list.

If you’re the sort of Terraria player that dispenses with all of that building nonsense to head out into the world and decimate the local population of monsters, you’re going to need protection. That’s where Terraria armor comes in. This nifty set of gear will protect you from monster’s attacks, as well as provide you with bonus effects that can change how you play.

Now, there’s an extensive amount of Terraria armor on offer, and you might even want to collect a bunch of different sets as your circumstances change. That’s where we come in. We’ve created this guide to help you keep track of all of the armor sets in Terraria, including crafting recipes, drop locations, bonus effects, and more.

If you’re just getting started with Terraria, we have a list of Terraria NPCs, which includes how to find them and keep them happy, as well as how to get yourself a pair of Terraria wings. Because who doesn’t like a good old pair of wings?
