Reaver armor is a craftable Hardmode armor set, crafted from Essences of Sunlight, Jungle Spores, and Perennial Bars. It requires 6 Essences of Sunlight, 24 Jungle Spores, and 31 Perennial Bars to make the whole set or 8 Essences of Sunlight, 32 Jungle Spores, and 43 Perennial Bars for a set with all three headpieces.

It consists of a Reaver Scale Mail and Reaver Cuisses as well as three different headpieces: The Reaver Visage, Reaver Helm and Reaver Headgear. None of the helmets provide a boost to a specific class, instead they either aid in reducing damage taken from enemies, greatly improve the player's movement, or aid in exploration.

The Reaver Scale Mail provides 19 defense, 9% increased damage and 4% increased crit chance and +20 maximum life. The Reaver Cuisses provide 14 defense, 5% increased critical strike chance and 12% increased movement speed.

  • The Reaver Helm provides 30 defense, 15% increased damage reduction, +50 max life and a flat +1 life regen per second, but also 30% decreased damage.
    Its set bonus grants a further 10 defense and +3 life regen while reducing movement speed and flight time by 20%, +600 to Aggro, reduces the life regen lost from damage over time debuffs by 20%, gives all attacks a small chance to steal life while also speeding up the rate of life regen, causes thorn vines with 80 base damage to be released when the player is hit, and grants the player a 25% chance to activate the Reaver Rage buff when hit. Reaver Rage boosts all damage by 30%, melee speed by 5%, and defense by 5.
  • The Reaver Visage provides 13 defense, 10% increased jump speed and 15% increased movement speed.
    Its set bonus grants immunity to fall damage, allows the player to constantly jump, increases flight time and horizontal flight speed by 10%, makes hooks fly out and retract 10% faster and reduces the cooldown of dashes.
  • The Reaver Headgear provides 7 defense, 10% increased pick speed, 20% increased block/wall placement range, temporary immunity to lava and lets the player move freely through liquids.
    Its set bonus causes treasures near the player to sparkle, increases item grab and block placement range, restores breath while mining blocks underwater, summons a reaver orb which lights up a large area around the player and reduces enemy aggression, even in the Abyss.

A full set always provides at least 40 defense, +20 max life, 9% increased damage, 9% increased critical strike chance.

  • Before being reworked in, the Reaver armor worked like any other armor with different helmets, each one corresponding to a different class. Unlike the Legacy vanity headpieces, the Reaver Helmet and the Reaver Mask were outright removed rather than being converted to vanity items.
