Plague Reaper armor is a Hardmode armor set that is an upgrade to the Necro armor. It requires an entire Necro armor set along with 65 Plague Cell Canisters and 47 Nanites to craft the entire set. The armor mainly grants bonuses to the ranged class. If the entire set is visible (regardless of whether it is equipped or in social slots), the wearer will have a faint pulsing aura.
It consists of a Plague Reaper Mask, Plague Reaper Vest, and Plague Reaper Striders.
The full set grants the following stats and bonuses (this includes the set bonus):
- 34 defense
- 25% increased ranged damage
- 16% increased ranged critical strike chance
- 15% increased movement speed
- 25% reduced ammo usage
- 5% increased flight time
- Grants immunity to the Plague debuff
- The Plague debuff causes enemies to take 10% more damage from ranged projectiles
- Getting hit causes Plague Cinders to rain above the player which are affected by ranged damage bonuses.
- Pressing Armor Set Bonus will blind the player similarly to the Blackout, Darkness, and Obstructed debuffs for 5 seconds. While the player is blinded, their ranged damage and critical strike chance is raised by 60% and 20% respectively. This effect has a 25 second cooldown.
