    1. You must have all armor in your inventory at some point to get the achievement
    2. It is not necessary to equip each piece on your character

    All armor (that are not found) are crafted at a workbench or anvil
    You also need a furnace to smelt metal bars from ore to make the metal armors.
    A regular furnace is made from 20 stone blocks, 4 wood, and 3 torches.
    A Hellforge can be found in the Underworld
    A Hellforge plus 30 adamantite or titanium will yield an Adamantite/Titanium Forge which can be used to smelt ANY bar from ore
    Hallowed Bars are found from slaying Normal Mode bosses
    You must break Demon/Crimson altars to make Orichalum, Cobalt, Palladium, Mythril, Adamantite, or Titanium to spawn in your world. The more altars you destroy, the more ore is created.
    Souls are obtained from creatures in their respective biomes, or from farming bosses
    Shroomite bars are made at an Auto-Hammer crafting station, which is sold by the Truffle, using Chlorophyte Bars and Glowing mushrooms

    A Big RadroachCan confirm this still works as of 04/03/21.
    What you need to do is manually pick up every single one and apply them manually too.
    So it’s easiest to get a friend to loot the chest. Throw them to you one by one.
    Put them on. Have a walk. Throw them back

    This is being written as of version 1.0.983.5, found at the bottom right of the main menu.
    To start, if an armor set has multiple helmet variants (Mast, Helmet, Headgear, Hood etc.) you DO NEED all of the variants. This may be a change from the past, but it was the last thing I needed for this achievement. This list is in the same order found on the wiki for armors.

    -At this time, there is a glitch with the extractinator and either the brick layer, builder potion or the architect gizmo pack that makes silt, slush and desert fossils infinite. This is an easy way to make money and get all the ore you need for the early armors.
    -There maybe some armors on this list that you don't need, but I thought better safe, than sorry, as these are the armors that I had acquired and made when I go the achievement,
