Molten armor is an armor set consisting of the Molten Helmet, Molten Breastplate, and Molten Greaves. It has the highest defense of any pre-Hardmode armor set, but can also be one of the most difficult to obtain.

A full set of Molten armor provides the following benefits:

  • +25 defense
  • +17% increased melee damage
  • +7% melee speed
  • +7% melee critical strike chance
  • Immunity to the On Fire! debuff
  • If the full set is visible, it will leave a fire trail similar to that of the Meteor armor.

It takes a total of 45 Hellstone Bars to craft a full set of Molten armor, or 135 Hellstone and 45 Obsidian.
