Terraria Molten Armor Guide: How to Craft, Requirements, & Stats

Posted on by justin
Players can get the Molten Armor in Terraria once they can access the Underworld. Although it’s possible to obtain this armor set in pre-Hardmode, navigating the dangerous terrain of the biome can be treacherous, especially for new and undergeared players. If you’re still determined to brave through the hazardous Underworld area in order to craft the Molten Armor set, though... you've come to the right place.

How to Craft the Molten Armor Set in Terraria

Terraria Molten Armor Like other armor in Terraria, the Molten Armor is made up of three components: the Molten Helmet, Molten Breastplate, and Molten Greaves. Players need to gather 45x Hellstone Bar near an Iron or Lead Anvil to craft all the pieces of the set. DON’T MISS IT: Terraria Zenith Crafting Guide: Requirements, Materials, Stats & More

Crafting Hellstone Bars

Terraria Hellstone Bar Crafting one Hellstone Bar requires 3x Hellstone and 1x Obsidian. Players must be near a Hellforge to combine these items into a Hellstone Bar. As mentioned previously, you can find Hellstone and Obsidian in the Underworld biome. Also, you must use at least a Deathbringer or Nightmare Pickaxe to mine Hellstones. Tricks like using explosives also won’t extract Hellstones from their locations, unlike other minerals. As for the Obsidian, using a Gold Pickaxe or a stronger variant should suffice in mining this ore from the Underworld. It’s fairly easy to find this material in the area, unlike Hellstone. Another way to farm for Obsidian is to apply water to lava. However, this method requires players to bring enough water to a place with lava, which can be fairly tedious. Players must gather 135x Hellstone and 45x Obsidian to craft 45x Hellstone Bar for the Molten Armor set.
