Crimson armor is a pre-Hardmode armor set consisting of the Crimson Helmet, Crimson Scalemail, and Crimson Greaves. Equipping the full set grants a greatly increased health regeneration rate, represented by faint red pulses around the player: Each pulse represents one health point regenerated. These become more frequent the longer the player avoids damage, and even more frequent while standing still. Each piece also provides a +2% weapon damage boost, the entire set providing a total of +6% damage.
Crimson armor is the Crimson equivalent of Shadow armor and leaves a similar trail of red bubbles during motion when the full set is equipped. However, unlike Shadow armor, it does not have an interchangeable Ancient version.
- While Crimson armor is named directly after its biome (Crimson), its Corruption counterpart is named Shadow armor, rather than "Corruption armor."
