There's lots of armor throughout the game, with the best armor also being the most time-consuming to obtain, requiring multiple sets of Hardmode armor. Hardmode armor includes three different types of helmets for each set as well, and you'll need to craft them all for use as materials for the best armor.
This achievement is finicky and may not unlock once you've collected everything. Shuffling your armor around in chests and in your inventory or dropping it and picking it back up should cause it to pop.
Mining Armor Mining Helmet, Mining Shirt, and Mining Pants. You buy the Mining Helmet from the Merchant for 8 gold. The shirt and pants are rare drops from the Undead Miner and Vampire Miner, zombie-type mobs found in the Cavern layer. Depending on luck, this may be the last set you complete. These already rare mobs are even more scarce once you unlock Hardmode, so make a new world instead when you plan on farming them.
Copper Armor Copper Helmet, Copper Chainmail, and Copper Greaves. Requires 60 Copper Bars to craft the entire set.
Iron Armor Iron Helmet, Iron Chainmail, and Iron Greaves. Requires 75 Iron Bars to craft the entire set.
Silver Armor Silver Helmet, Silver Chainmail, and Silver Greaves. Requires 75 Silver Bars to craft the entire set.
Gold Armor Gold Helmet, Gold Chainmail, and Gold Greaves. Requires 90 Gold Bars to craft the entire set.
Meteor Armor Meteor Helmet, Meteor Suit, and Meteor Leggings. Requires 75 Meteorite Bars to craft the entire set.
Jungle Armor Jungle Hat, Jungle Shirt, and Jungle Pants. Requires 12 Stingers, 2 Vines, 32 Jungle Spores, and 1 of each type of gem (Diamond, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, Topaz, and Amethyst).
Necro Armor Necro Helmet, Necro Breastplate, and Necro Greaves. Requires 150 Bones and 135 Cobwebs to craft the entire set.
Shadow Armor Shadow Helmet, Shadow Scalemail, and Shadow Greaves. Requires 50 Demonite Bars and 45 Shadow Scales to craft the entire set.

Dragon Armor Dragon Mask, Dragon Breastplate, and Dragon Greaves. Requires the Cobalt, Mythril, Adamantite, and Hallowed Armor sets, 60 Souls of Might, and 60 Souls of Blight to craft a set. Needs the "melee" version helms (Cobalt Helmet, Mythril Helmet, Adamantite Helmet, and Hallowed Mask) from the other sets to craft. All pieces have a chance to drop from Ocram.

Strategy for Mining Armor: Dig down to the lowest part of the Cavern layer (just above the Underworld) and find a good-sized natural cavern that extends horizontally a few screens. Skeletons spawn at an increased rate at this level, which increases your chance of getting an Undead or Vampire Miner. Fill in any other empty pockets around your main cavern to prevent enemies from spawning there. Cover up any lava pools. Now stand in the middle and wait for enemies to come to you. Using a Battle Potion and Blue Candle is recommended, but not necessary. This method also works for getting a Pinky to spawn.
Strategies for farming materials: Souls aren't rare, but you need plenty of them for the boss summoning items and Hardmode armor. Here's a link to the method I used for Souls of Light/Night.
I never had enough Lens when I needed them for The Twins, so here's a magnificent video for farming them:
Have mining set already no longer need it. Still don't know what I'm missing I have made copper, iron, silver, gold, meteor, jungle, necro, shadow, molten, cobalt, mythril, adamantite, hallowed, dragon, titan, and spectral
I added you Chironstutor, I have the mining amour, but to be honest, I'm not that good at Terraria, I've only killed the giant eye and worm, and can't even kill the skeleton (and I'm playing on easy) >__< ..Help anyone? My highest amour is Shadow btw. My GT is RapidRat
RapidRat, please don't think to yourself that I'm any good either I had shadow armour when I went up against skeleton and he killed me in around 3 seconds, if you like we could do our trades and I could help you kill him? ( this offer goes out to anyone who needs help killing the PRE hard mode bosses as I still need help killing the harder ones)
#21 how about you build a little house next to the dungeon and set your spawn point there it's been a month since you posted that so i presume you've already killed him but idk maybe future players will read this.
Hey everybody, I'm just looking for the last two achievements in this game that i'll need...which is all the pets, and a world that has been corrupted. I have all the armor set in exchange for anyone that can help me with these last two achievements.
My gamertag is: SubZeroSno; send me a message if you can help! Thanks!
Looking for someone to help with the mining armor set, I have every other set. I can dupe anything you want if you can work with me, even dupe your mining armor so we can both have it. xbox gt is :DB is 2 GooD thanks guys
Currently looking to trade for Zombie, Hornet and Werewolf pets and any top tier armours? Have all best weapons in game, the other three pets, Dragon helm and greaves, titan armour and spectral armour. Also have moon charm if anyone requires it.
Feel free to drop me a message if interested! GT: Darkened Karma
I believe you can use a duplicating method.(didn't try this after the update) Have one guy give the host all the items they need and then leave through the dashboard without saving. That same guy should go back in and check if its still there (just in case). This does work, I've tried this with my friend. He gave me all his adamantite armor, drill, forge and sword, a magic mirror and wings and he still have them after he joined back to my world.
i think my game has glitched as ive kill all 4 hardmode bosses about 30 times each and not once has it dropped hallowed bars if someone has any spare they dont mind giving or duping for me so i can make the hallowed armour then i just need to find mining armour
