Nebula armor is a late-game Hardmode armor set that provides magic weapon boosts. It is currently the best magic set available on the Desktop version. Crafting this set requires a total of 36 Luminite Bars (144 Luminite) and 45 Nebula Fragments.
Each piece causes the player to emit a small amount of purple light. The light level is increased with every additional piece equipped.
This set grants a total buff of:
- +60 mana
- +26% magic damage
- +16% magic critical chance
- -15% mana usage
- +10% movement speed
The Set Bonus grants a chance that special booster items will appear when striking enemies with any weapon, including minions. Each booster grants a buff that lasts 8 seconds, and causes a spark effect to float around the player. When a booster item is picked up while its buff is already in effect, it stacks with the previous buff, up to 3 times. Every 8 seconds, the buff will decrease by one level. Booster items float in the air, and have a greater pickup range than most items.
In multiplayer, any player can pick up these booster items and benefit from their buffs, even if they are not wearing Nebula armor. Additionally, picking up a booster item will grant every nearby player (within a 20-30 tile radius, approximately) one instance of the buff.
