Angler armor is an armor set consisting of an Angler Hat, Angler Vest, and Angler Pants. Each piece of the set provides a 5% increase to Fishing Power and can be received as a reward for completing Fishing quests given by the Angler NPC. The hat is given at 10 quests completed, the vest piece at 15, and the pants at 20. Although its effects on fishing are useful throughout the game, it only rewards a total of 4 defense.
Wearing the full set provides no additional bonuses.
- As the low defense of this armor can put Hardmode players at a disadvantage, it is recommended to take measures when fishing (e.g. a box of blocks with a floor of platforms, Peace Candles, Traps, Minions) in order to prevent enemies from getting too close and/or quickly killing the player.
- Fishing near NPCs also help as enemy spawn rates drastically decrease when near a town.
- Angler armor is one of 4 armor sets that do not provide a set bonus, the others being Pink Snow armor, Rain armor, and Snow armor.
