Demonshade armor is a craftable post-Moon Lord developer armor set crafted from Shadowspec Bars. It takes a total of 34 Shadowspec Bars to craft a full set. Demonshade Armor is arguably the most powerful armor set available in the Calamity Mod, although the wider array of status effects granted by the Auric Tesla armor may make that desirable in some cases. If the full set is visible (whether equipped or in social slots), the player will have afterimages. If the full set is equipped, the player will leave behind purple dust as they move regardless of any social slot items worn.
It consists of a Demonshade Helm, Demonshade Breastplate, and Demonshade Greaves.
The full set grants the following stats and bonuses (this includes the set bonus):
- 150 defense
- 45% increased damage
- 100% increased minion damage
- 30% increased critical strike chance
- 20% increased melee speed
- 50% increased run acceleration
- 50% increased maximum run speed
- 100% increased movement speed
- +200 max life and mana
- +10 max minions
- Enemies have 100x their contact damage reflected back at them when hitting the player
- Standing still grants incredibly fast life regeneration (similar to the Shiny Stone).
- All attacks inflict the Demon Flames debuff on hit.
- There is a 25% chance for Demon Flames to be inflicted for 6 seconds, a 37.5% chance to be inflicted for 4 seconds, and a 37.5% chance to be inflicted for 2 seconds.
- Shadowbeams and demon scythes will drop from the sky when you take damage.
- The beams deal 3000 typeless damage, and the scythes deal 5000 typeless damage on hit.
- A Red Devil follower is summoned.
- The devil fires piercing tridents at a high velocity which deal 9000 typeless damage.
Pressing the Armor Set Bonus key will inflict the Enraged debuff to both nearby enemies and the player for 10 seconds. While inflicted with the Enraged debuff:
- Players take 25% more damage from all sources. This stacks with other damage increasing effects.
- Players deal 125% more damage to enemies. This applies before Damage Reduction mechanics.
- Bosses obtain unique behaviors that are much more aggressive.
- Enemies are tinted red.
- Pressing Armor Set Bonus while currently Enraged will refresh the duration of the debuff to the player, but it does not refresh the duration of the debuff to nearby enemies.
- The boosted life regeneration from the Breastplate is overridden by the effects of the Shiny Stone. However, it overrides the effects of Cosmic Freeze, Draedon's Heart, and Photosynthesis.
- Although this is an endgame armor, in some aspects it is inferior to Auric Tesla armor, as it lacks revives and lifesteal.
- Demonshade armor can be considered a damage-focused alternative to Auric Tesla, due to many of its effects focusing on dealing extreme damage to enemies, despite the lack of survivability benefits.
- This armor actually has a unique rarity, but is referred to here as Hot Pink for consistency between items.
- This unique rarity alternates between orange (#FF8416 ●) and dark orange (#DD5507 ●) colors.
- The Red Devil summoned by this armor set can only be disabled by having the Cosmic Plushie equipped.
- The Enraged mechanic is a reference to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, specifically to the Jetstream Sam DLC where taunting enemies causes them to enrage, both taking and dealing more damage.
