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:

  • +30 Defense
  • +4 Minions Slots
  • +58% minion damage
  • +20% Movement Speed

Spooky armor is the second most powerful summoning armor in the game, barely beating out Tiki armor, and beaten by Stardust armor. Despite the slightly lower defense, Spooky armor has noticeably higher bonus damage compared to Tiki armor, as well as a movement speed increase making it the better option.

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 ( 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[]

  • If Spooky armor is equipped in the social slot while Shroomite armor is equipped, the cloaking effect of the Shroomite armor does not work as effectively due to the glowing effect of the Spooky armor. Note that no stats are affected as a result.
  • The total bonuses are composed of the following:
    • 11% minion damage from each piece and 25% from set bonus.
    • +2 minion capacity from the breastplate, and +1 minion capacity from the helmet and leggings each.
    • +20% increased movement speed from the leggings
    • +1 minion capacity from each piece.

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 leggings increase walking movement speed from 15 to 18 mph. Note that if you already have boots equipped (e.g. Hermes Boots), the leggings' movement speed will not increase your movement speed any further.

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.
  • When fighting the Moon Lord, the Spooky armor loses its orange/red markings.
