Empyrean armor is a craftable post-Moon Lord armor set crafted from Meld Constructs, as well as Luminite Bars. It serves as the Lunar-tier armor for the rogue class. It requires 52 Meld Constructs and 36 Luminite Bars to make the whole set. If all three pieces of the set are visible (whether equipped or in social slots), the player will have a pulsing aura and afterimages. Additionally, the armor's movement and item swinging animations will change to be more unique than each individual piece's animation.

It consists of a Empyrean Mask, Empyrean Cloak, and Empyrean Cuisses.

Stats[edit | edit source]

The full set grants the following stats and bonuses (this includes the set bonus):

  • 71 defense
  • 32% increased rogue damage
  • 23% increased rogue critical strike chance
  • 9% increased rogue velocity
  • 26% increased movement speed
  • +20 max life
  • Temporary immunity to lava
  • Grants the Empyrean Rage and Empyrean Wrath buffs for 4 seconds upon taking damage, granting the player 10% increased rogue damage and 5% increased rogue critical strike chance respectively
  • Grants the Wrath and Rage buffs indefinitely while below half health, further granting the player 10% increased damage and critical strike chance respectively
  • Gives a max stealth of 115

With the set bonus active, all rogue projectiles will be able to spawn a variety of different Empyrean projectiles upon striking enemies. After a projectile spawns, there is a short cooldown before a new one can spawn. These projectiles will all inflict On Fire! and Cursed Inferno for 2 seconds:

Type Chance Description
Empyrean StarEmpyrean Star 1/5 An Empyrean Star which homes in strongly on enemies. It deals 80% of the damage of the projectile that spawned it and is softcapped at 120 damage.
Empyrean Damaging OrbEmpyrean Damaging Orb 1/4 (if an Empyrean Star didn't spawn) An Empyrean Orb which homes in on enemies and deals 62.5% of the projectile's damage and is softcapped at 100 damage.
Empyrean Healing OrbEmpyrean Healing Orb 1/4 (if an Empyrean Star didn't spawn) Another Empyrean Orb which spawns alongside the first one, and heals for 10% of the projectile's damage. If the projectile is piercing, the orb heals for 5% of the second hit's damage, and does not heal for any subsequent hits.
Empyrean Fire SparkEmpyrean Fire Spark 1/3 (if none of the above spawned) An Empyrean Fire spark which is affected by gravity and lingers on the ground for a short time. It deals 15% of the projectile's damage, softcapped at 30 damage. If three or more Empyrean Fire sparks exist at a time, no new Empyrean projectiles can be spawned.
n/a Empyrean Blast 1/2 (if none of the above spawned) An Empyrean Blast Explosion that deals damage in an area. It deals 20% of the projectile's damage, softcapped at 40 damage.
Empyrean BubbleEmpyrean Bubble 1/2 (if none of the above spawned) An Empyrean Bubble will be spawned which homes in weakly on enemies. It deals 60% of the projectile's damage and is softcapped at 90 damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This armor set is considered to be the Rogue equivalent of the Lunar Fragments armors.
  • The additional projectiles spawned by the set bonus do not have any damage types, and are not affected by their respective classes' damage bonuses.
  • While the full set is equipped, melee weapons release magenta dust when swung, which emit a decent amount of light.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Once worn by what can only be described as a monster, it is written that if it's [sic] original owner were to wear it once more the entire universe would not know rest for another ten thousand years. It is said that the armor was made from the flesh, teeth, and nails of its original owner. Only someone who were to prove their strength among the strongest warriors would be able to break their seal.

However, these anecdotal writings are from an age long lost to the passage of time. The being has not been viewed by the naked eye in eons and it is also written that a mere sighting of it would drive a layperson mad.
