  • The Spectral armor has a non- exclusive counterpart, being Spectre armor as they are both obtained post-Plantera. Spectral armor is available pre-Plantera as it is possible to summon Ocram pre-mechanical bosses, but is not recommended.


  • Prior to Console 1.02, the Spectral Subligar was the only item in the game to increase the player's mana by an amount not divisible by 20.
  • Spectral armor is tied with the Diamond Robe + Magic Hat in maximum mana increase.
  • The Spectral armor's shirt is called Spectral Armor, which can lead to some confusion when discussing the armor with other players. Magic armor sets usually have a breastplate or robe for the shirt slot.
  • Wearing the Spectral Headgear, the Diamond Robe and the Spectral Subligar will increase the player's maximum mana by the highest possible amount of 230.
  • Spectral armor is the only Ocram dropped armor that is comparable to its non- exclusive counterparts (based on stats alone.)
