    These are all armor on 360 version of Terraria and what do you need to craft them, you can craft them or have a friend gift it to you, both works. You only need the sets listed here, you dont need any of the vanity sets (txusedo, ninja, mario, zelda, doctor, bunny, etc).

    You can have them on chest or mannequins, the cheevo will pop a few seconds later you recieve the last piece of armor (mining shirt for me). If you have all this armor sets and the cheevo is not popping take your armors, drop them from your inventory and pick it back again, now the cheevo should normally pop (thanks jehcob and shadow enz for this bug solution) also MayhemMcEndree found that you can try to equip every armor/vanity in your vanity slot.

    LoneSt4r1836 has found that you can be in a different world from your gear, receive the final piece from a friend and have the achievement pop.

    EarthboundX has found and tested a really good tip: "As long as you make the piece it counts, you don't have to save to keep the armor for this ach." This way you can create an armor, exit, load again, and use the materials for another part or a totally different armor.

    EarthboundX has found a trick to get the materials you need in the hard-mode world:

    Each hardmode ore is chosen at the moment you break the first three altars in the world. You can choose the ores you like by quitting your world without saving after smashing your first altars.
    You can place a bed near the altar so you appear near it every time you need, you will need a very basic suitable house to do so (chair, table, door).

    - Spooky Set (Armor, Legs, Helmet) - made from Spooky Wood (dropped by creatures during Pumpkin Event)
    - Turtle Set (Armor, Legs, Helmet) - made from Chlorophyte Bars and turtle shells
    - Spectre Set (Armor, Legs, Helmet: hood + mask) - made from chlorophyte bars and ectoplasm
    - Frost armor - made from hallowed bars and frost cores which are dropped by Ice Golems in a hardmode snow biome during a blizzard. This particular armor can be dropped by ice golem (rare drop)
    - Palladium Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 Helmets) - equivalent tier to Cobalt sets (you still need cobalt sets)
    - Orichalum Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 Helmets) - equivalent tier to Mythril sets (you still need mythril sets)
    - Titanium Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 Helmets) - equivalent tier to Adamantite sets (you still need adamantite sets)
    - Chlorophyte Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 Helmets) - made from chlorophyte bars (chlorophyte ore)
    - Shroomite Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 helmets) Made from Chlorophyte and glowing mushrooms - Thanks to Old Willy Pete for this one.

    KDolezCan someone confirm if the beetle armor is needed? I think I crafted everything and no pop. But I used the "craft - don't save but exit - reload and craft again" method.
    Posted by KDolez on 11 Oct 16 at 02:14
    ProfiliaMolten armor only requires 45 hellstone bars now. smile
    Posted by Profilia on 17 Oct 16 at 00:14
    GodLike499I already defeated Tim and sold the Wizard Hat, because I didn't want to equip it and didn't realize it was required for this achievement. Will Tim respawn, or will I need to play in a different world?
    Posted by GodLike499 on 29 Nov 16 at 01:41
    DrSchlepensteinTim respawns. He is just like any other enemy. I tend to find him in the areas closer toward hell, but not in hell.

    What am I missing???
    Posted by runemax on 08 Jan 17 at 01:04
    DrSchlepenstein@runemax - from your list, I see that the one you are missing is IRON armor. And if you have that, the only other 3 that I have that you didn't list are Boreal Wood, Palm Wood, and Beetle Armor (has 2 different body pieces).

    Though its been said that Boreal and Palm Wood, aren't needed as they classify under the normal Wood armor, and someone else said Beetle wasn't needed either, but I had still crafted them prior to getting my achievement to pop, the last one I was missing was Frost armor, when it popped, as farming for the monster that drops Frost cores took me forever.

    My9inchBisonAnyone keen on helping me my storage deleted itself an really need help could someone just help me out
    Posted by My9inchBison on 03 Mar 18 at 04:17
    Unknown DoboAnyone who's having trouble getting the second group of hard mode ore armours. You can get ores and bars for metals not normally present in your world from fishing crates.
    Also crates don't set their contents until they are opened so if you fish up a load of crates in a normal world and then switch to your hard mode world to open them, you will receive the, better, hard mode loot.
    Potentially including ores you were missing.
    Posted by Unknown Dobo on 02 Mar 20 at 01:34
    PinkyNarf69@KDolez and others, I can confirm that the beetle armor is not needed for the achievement.
    Posted by PinkyNarf69 on 08 Jun 20 at 05:41
    Can I confirm that you don’t need the ancient cobalt and ancient shadow armors?
