    Spooky armor is a Hardmode post-Plantera armor set made from Spooky Wood. Wearing the full set increases the wearer's minion capacity by 4 (to a total of 5), along with granting +58% minion damage and creating a glowing effect around the character. It requires a total of 750 Spooky Wood to create the full set.

    A full set of Spooky armor provides the following benefits:

    Desktop only.pngConsole versionMobile versiontModLoader version Spooky armor is the second most powerful summoning armor in the game, slightly beating out Tiki armor. It is beaten by Stardust armorDesktop only.pngConsole versionOld-gen console versionMobile versionOld Chinese versiontModLoader versiontModLoader 1.3-Legacy version. Despite the slightly lower defense, Spooky armor has noticeably higher bonus damage compared to Tiki armor, as well as a movement speed increase.

    Windows Phone.svgOld Chinese versionNintendo 3DS versiontModLoader 1.3-Legacy version Spooky armor is the second most powerful summoning armor in the game, roughly tied with Tiki armor, and beaten by Stardust armor. It provides a noticeable increase in bonus damage over the comparable Tiki armor, at the cost of one minion (Old-gen console version except on old-gen Console, where both sets provide the same number of minions) and some defense. If the player does not have at least one accessory and/or buff that increases the minion capacity, Tiki armor will actually cause minions to deal more damage, with the upper hand of more defense. If there is no increase in minion capacity, Spooky armor increases minion damage by 632% (with 4 minions), while Tiki armor increases the damage by 650% (with 5 minions). When the player can summon 1 extra minion, Spooky armor increases minion damage by 790%, while Tiki armor only increases it by 780%. The more minions that can be summoned, the more damage minions do with Spooky armor.

    Spooky armor is both the strongest and most expensive armor that is crafted with a form of wood.

    Notes[]

    • The total bonuses are composed of the following:
      • 11% minion damage from each piece and 25% from set bonus.
      • Desktop only.pngConsole versionMobile versiontModLoader version +2 minion capacity from the breastplate, and +1 minion capacity from the helmet and leggings each.
      • Old-gen console versionWindows Phone.svgOld Chinese versionNintendo 3DS versiontModLoader 1.3-Legacy version +1 minion capacity from each piece.
      • Desktop only.pngConsole versionMobile versiontModLoader version +20% increased movement speed from the leggings.

    Tips[]

    • If combined with the Necromantic Scroll, Hercules Beetle, Summoner Emblem and Papyrus Scarab, the resulting minions will get a total of 113% increased damage.
    • With an exchange rate of 50 per unit of Spooky Wood, crafting and selling Spooky Helmets is the most efficient way to convert Spooky Wood into coins.
    • The Spooky Leggings increase walking movement speed from 15 to 18 mph. However, if the player already has boots equipped (e.g. Hermes Boots), the Leggings' movement speed will not have that noticeable an increase to the player's movement speed.

    Trivia[]

    • The only difference between male and female sets of Spooky armor seems to be the orange/red markings on the upper breastplate.
    • Even in terms of defense, the Spooky armor is the most powerful wooden armor.
    • Spooky armor and Pearlwood armor are the only Hardmode armor crafted at a Work Bench.
    • The Moon Lord's screen effect causes the Spooky armor to lose its orange/red markings.
