This Beetle Shell is a post-Golem breast-piece with the second highest defense (32 defense, second to Solar Flare in most defense) in the game and is one of the upgraded versions of the Turtle Scale Mail (the other being the Beetle Scale Mail). When the full armor set is equipped, a beetle will spawn every few seconds (up to 3) and fly around the player, granting the Beetle Endurance buff. These beetles will insulate from a total of 45% damage (15% each). Every time the player takes damage, one beetle will disappear, respawning in some time. The beetles do not have any other effect than simply reducing damage. The buff can be cancelled if the player right-clicks buff icon, but it will re-appear some time after anyways.
This is the more defensive-oriented chest-piece, although enemies will choose to target the wearer more often in multiplayer, just like most other types of late-game melee armor.
In the mobile version, this is the most powerful chestpiece.
