Stardust armor is a late-game Hardmode armor set that provides summon weapon boosts. It is currently the best summoner set available on the Desktop version. Crafting the full set requires a total of 36 Luminite Bars(144 Luminite) and 45 Stardust Fragments.
In total, Stardust armor pieces apply the following boosts:
- +5 minion capacity
- +66% minion damage
Equipping a full set of Stardust armor causes a unique Stardust Guardian minion to follow the wearer. It is passive until activated by double-tapping the ▼ Down key, which places it at the nearest block
surface beneath the cursor position. Once placed, the Guardian becomes a sentry-style minion that can only chase enemies for very short distances before returning to its original position. It periodically triggers explosions that deal minor damage and cause enemies
in the blast radius to target the Guardian instead of the player. It is deactivated by holding the ▼ Down key, which causes it to return to following the player passively. The Stardust Guardian does not count against the player’s minion capacity.
