The Calamity Mod adds a plethora of new weapons and equipment for all classes, including its new rogue class, to use throughout the game. Calamity also adds many difficult boss encounters and other situations in which class builds should be optimized in order to efficiently succeed. This is a guide that will show recommended weapon and equipment builds for each of the five classes at various points in the game's progression. This guide will not mention Lore items.
Items restricted to Expert or Revengeance Mode will be italicized.
Start as you normally would - gather materials for building, build a couple of houses, increase your maximum health, make a trip to the Corruption/Crimson for your first ranged weapon, farm Cnidrions for Victory Shards and make Victide bars out of them. Make sure to look for Hermes Boots or Flurry Boots. If you have a Gravitation Potion, look for floating islands and Planetoids.
At this point you should've already killed a few bosses, including Brain of Cthulhu/Eater of Worlds, and should be getting ready for a trip to The Underworld. You should've fought the Goblin Army by now and have obtained a Level Meter from the Goblin Tinkerer. Also, the Magnum is now available for use with the Magnum Rounds that have dropped from previously defeated bosses, which becomes a good choice for dealing an extra burst of damage.
At this point you should've killed The Perforators/Hive Mind and mined plenty of Aerialite to craft new gear to help prepare you for Skeletron.
At this point you should make a trip to the Abyss with a Shadow Key and haul everything you can get out of there.
You should've beaten Cryogen by now, and you should be working towards your Daedalus armor by mining Cryonic Ore to make Cryonic Bars.
After killing the Mechanical Bosses you have access to Hallowed Bars as well as souls of Sight, Might and Fright allowing you to get more powerful equipment. You should also start harvesting Life Fruits for the upcoming battles.
The drops from Calamitas help greatly in dealing with this boss thanks to the piercing effects of them which help with the 2nd phase.
At this point you should aim into becoming a single class since mixed gets rather weak because of the armor set bonuses getting stronger.
The defeat of Plantera makes Perennial Ore available and Ectoplasm easily accessible from the Dungeon. Hardmode Abyss weapons, and the Great Sand Shark should also now be available.
You should have plenty of equipment from the Old One's Army, Martian Invasion, and Duke Fishron.
Items crafted from Meld Bars, certain unique weapons crafted using Lunar Fragments, and some new accessories should be made before the fight.
The Elemental weapons and new items crafted using Luminite Bars and Galactica Singularities are now attainable. Also, the Elephant Killer becomes available now, which is an all-class weapon that deals massive damage to organic targets.
Uelibloom Ore is available at this point allowing you to craft Tarragon armor and more powerful weapons.
With the unique materials from the Sentinels and the new Abyss drops post-Polterghast, several weapons are now available.
The Devourer of Gods drops Cosmilite Bars on death, allowing you to craft the God Slayer armor set. His defeat also makes the Pumpkin Moon and the Frost Moon harder and allows Pumpkings and Ice Queens to drop Nightmare Fuel and Endothermic Energy, respectively.
After Yharon reaches 10% of his HP he will flee leaving a status message informing you of the now-buffed Solar Eclipse, in which Mothrons will begin to drop Darksun Fragments.
Defeating Yharon causes Auric Ore to generate underground, allowing you to craft powerful weapons and armor.
Supreme Calamitas drops Calamitous Essence on death, which is required for crafting most developer items. These weapons will prove useful for the Boss Rush event. If you are playing with other mods that add even tougher bosses, these weapons will help greatly for them as well.
