The Turtle Armor is a type of Armor that provides melee bonuses, a lot of defense (the second best defense in the game), and the full set also returns full damage to your enemies once it hits the wearer with a melee attack, similar to the Thorns potion effect. However, each piece of the armor makes enemies more likely to target you.

When wearing the full set, the player's back has a turtle shell on it. This will cause any Wings the player is wearing to be hidden until they take flight, at which point the shell is replaced by wings.

Despite the armor being amazing defensive armor, it is not the best melee armor, seeing that the pre-hardmode molten armor gives more melee damage. Thus, it fits more for a player who wants more defense than attack. For better attack but less defense, chlorophyte armor with the mask should be crafted instead. Turtle Armor is good to use against Skeletron Prime, as the thorns will most likely kill him as well as the damage dealt by the player. It is also good to use during the Pumpkin Moon and Frost Moon events, as good defense is important.

Turtle Armor can be combined with Beetle Husk to create the even stronger Beetle armor, which has higher defense, but loses the ability to reflect damage back to enemies.

Crafting

Turtle Armor requires a total of 54 Chlorophyte Bars (exactly 324 ore, only found in the Underground Jungle), as well as Turtle Shells (one for each piece of the armor), which drop from Giant Tortoises in the Jungle.

Stats

Turtle Helmet

  • 21 defense.
  • 6% increased melee damage.
  • Enemies will want to target the player more when worn.

Turtle Scale Mail

  • 27 defense.
  • 8% increased melee damage and critical strike chance.
  • Enemies will want to target the player more when worn.

Turtle Leggings

  • 17 defense.
  • 4% increased melee damage and critical strike chance.
  • Enemies will want to target the player more when worn.

Tips and Strategies

  • If playing with friends, this armor (and Paladin's Shield or an ally using Spectre Armor) is useful for defending players with lower Defense; since enemies will target you more, this can allow them to assist more, or get away without being pursued.
  • This armor is extremely good for defensive and melee combat types, but is not recommended for caster or ranger-type players.
