The Silva armor is a craftable post-Moon Lord armor set. It is the last of the four sets needed to craft the Auric Tesla armor. It cannot be obtained until after defeating several Mothron from the upgraded Solar Eclipse, which is only activated upon the defeat of Jungle Dragon, Yharon's first phase, as its recipe calls for Darksun Fragments. The Devourer of Gods and the upgraded Pumpkin and Frost Moons must also be defeated at least once in order to craft a set of armor utilizing one headpiece, as the armor's recipe also requires Cosmilite Bars. In order to craft a set of armor including all of the headpieces, The Devourer of Gods must be defeated at least twice. If the entire set is visible (whether equipped or in social slots), the wearer will have afterimages.
It consists of the Silva Armor and Silva Leggings, as well as having five different headpieces suited to each class, being: the Silva Helm, Silva Horned Helm, Silva Masked Cap, Silva Helmet, and Silva Mask. All helmets share some common set bonuses, but also provide set bonuses specific to their respective class as well.
The Silva Armor provides 44 defense, 12% increased damage and 10% increased critical strike chance, 20% increased movement speed, and +80 max life. The Silva Leggings provide 39 defense, 12% increased damage and critical strike chance, and 45% increased movement speed.
- The Silva Helm gives 52 defense and 13% increased melee damage and critical strike chance.
- The Silva Horned Helm gives 36 defense and 13% increased ranged damage and critical strike chance.
- The Silva Masked Cap gives 21 defense, 13% increased magic damage and critical strike chance, +100 max mana, and 19% reduced mana cost
- The Silva Helmet gives 13 defense and +5 max minions.
- The Silva Mask gives 30 defense and 13% increased rogue damage and critical strike chance.

- Despite Betsy's Curse and Dazed not being inflicted by any enemies in the game, immunity is provided for them anyhow.
- The only enemy-inflicted debuffs that are not provided immunity for are as follows: Abyssal Flames, The Tongue, Horrified, Obstructed, Moon Bite, Armor Crunch, Whispering Death, Clamity, Fish Alert, Holy Inferno, Weak Petrification, Icarus' Folly, Extreme Gravity, Warped, and Vulnerability Hex.
- The Silva Helm's set 5x damage bonus can apply to non-true melee weapons, provided that the enemy was hit by the blade rather than the projectile.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The word "silva" is Latin for 'forest' or 'woodland'.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Equipment[edit | edit source]
The armor worn by the mythical Dryad, Silva. It is woven with the most pure and powerful form of nature magic, as Silva herself drew from the collective life force of every plant in Terraria during the fabrication of the armor. This eternal pool of vitality is stored within the armor itself, and upon its wearer sustaining injuries, lends its spirit, mending their injuries, and healing their scars. Of course, such rejuvenating power is difficult to sustain, and the armor must take time to renew its pool of mana, limiting its abilities.
Silva[edit | edit source]
From the first day creatures probed their way onto solid ground, plant life had always held the upper hand in demographics. Trees spread their boughs over quiet hills, and algae crept its way along raging waterfalls, each leading their own, quiet lives. However, predecessor and overseer to it all, is the first nature spirit, Silva.
Having been borne from the conceptualization of flora, and becoming the first Dryad, Silva was one of immense wisdom and power. With her connection to all the plant life in the land of Terraria, her health and vitality were linked to the well-being of its entire population, from the sprawling forests to each blade of grass. She would continue to live as long as somewhere, the tiniest plant still spread its leaves. In order to shave away at the countless centuries of her lifespan, much of Silva’s time was spent slumbering deep beneath the earth. As she only awoke when nature was in great peril, rarely did anyone see her. Thus, she was naught but a legend.
That is, until the flames of Yharim’s dragon, Yharon, razed much of the jungle during the time he single-handedly overthrew his predecessors, the prior Jungle Tyrants, to begin his rule. The devastation caused by the attack was on the scale that Silva was weakened considerably. In order to stop further destruction, she made the decision to stay conscious until her power had returned. However, word soon reached her ear of the mounting resistance, gathering those across the land who sought to topple the Tyrant’s rule. Rather than waiting, she took her chances, and decided to make herself known to the forces of Braelor and Statis. Considerably encouraged by the appearance of a powerful nature spirit, the two warriors went to battle, aiming to strike down the Tyrant. They never returned. When Silva herself went forward to try her hand, it appeared that, from the information gleaned from the prior assailant’s minds, most likely Braelor or Statis themselves, the witch Calamitas had learnt of her existence. In response, she had prepared a contingency. Taking control of the waste and pollution formed from Draedon’s constant experiments, she swallowed the Dryad within a pit of the filth. It was living torture, each breath a struggle, and the air burning as the corruption filled Silva’s lungs- yet she could not die, only fade away. Having suffocated Silva to a near comatose state, Calamitas finally released control of the toxins, collapsing from the strain of containing the Nature Spirit, and allowing the waste to flow into the waters of the ocean. As Silva sank with the filth, the form of the Dryad began to crumble away. Only her soul was confined to the depths of the Abyss, where the constant flow of noxious chemicals spewing from hydrothermal vents kept her from gathering enough power to rise once more. However, her influence as a powerful Dryad continues to be apparent, as her very presence allows plant life to grow in the abyss, where not even a trace of light can breach the darkness.
