The Forbidden Circlet is a Hardmode helmet armor piece and variant of the Forbidden armor. It grants 1 defense, 10% increased summon damage, and 15% increased rogue velocity.

When equipped with the Forbidden Robes and Forbidden Treads, the full set grants the following stats and bonuses (this includes the set bonus):

  • 21 defense
  • 10% increased summon damage
  • 15% increased rogue velocity
  • +80 max mana
  • +2 max minions
  • Gives a max stealth of 40.
  • Stealth strikes summon 6 homing Forbidden Eaters that each deal 40 typeless damage which can be affected by rogue damage bonuses, with a cooldown of 0.25 seconds. This effect only triggers for the first three enemies hit.
  • Pressing Armor Set Bonus will summon an Ancient Storm for 60 mana. The storm deals 80 base damage and is affected by mana cost reduction, mana sickness, summon damage bonuses, and rogue damage bonuses. The storm has a cooldown of 0.33 second before it can be summoned again.




  • The Ancient Storm has excellent crowd control and is very good against worm bosses or bosses you can keep right on top of it. It can even outperform Daedalus armor on bosses like Plantera or Destroyer.
  • The Ancient Storm benefits from damage bonuses from Rogue stealth and can inflict Flask debuffs. This means it does not synergize well with whips, as they will reset stealth when used, and are not needed for Flask debuffs.


  • The functionality of this item is a reference to the donor CrabBar's "DAD mode" (Death Mode-Armageddon-Defiled) YouTube series, in which he used a Summoner and Rogue (known as Throwing at the time) hybrid setup. This was intended to allow them to use Statis' Ninja Belt and Statis' Belt of Curses, which used to provide bonuses to both classes.
    • The donor intended this item to buff the Forbidden Armor's concept as a hybrid setup armor for Summoner and Rogue.
    • The center piece of circlet resembles a crab in reference to the donor's username.


These history sections are still a work-in-progress, and may not yet contain changes relevant to the current version of the Calamity Mod.
  • Now procs stealth strike projectile effects on the first 3 hits of a projectile instead of the first 5.
  • Fixed set bonus eaters scaling twice with summon damage.
  • Moved Adamantite Bar to the top of the recipe.
    • Minion slot boost has been moved to the set bonus.
    • Nerfed set bonus projectile base damage from 75 to 40.
  • Set bonus no longer grants minions the ability to deal full damage. Nerfed max rogue stealth from 100 to 40. Increased mana cost of the Ancient Storm by 10.
