远古暗影盔甲 是一套 盔甲 。它采用的是1.0.3 版本的暗影盔甲材质 , 其他的与 暗影盔甲 相同。相同到即使你把它和不古老的一起装备也能获得套装奖励，但是没有视觉上的效果。
The after-image effect when moving.
- If you mix and match the ancient set and its current counterpart, you will still get the set bonus. However, you will not get the visual trailing shadow bonus that comes with the set.
- If Ancient Shadow Armor is equipped in social slots, the after-image effect will still appear, even though you will not get the set bonus.
- The armor has the same sprite as Shadow Armor had before 1.0.3, thus the word "Ancient" in it.
- If you have a decent amount of gear with a new player, you can farm Eater of Souls and skip to Shadow Armor very early on.
- Farming for Ancient Shadow Armor is much slower in a hardmode world because the spawn rate for the Eater of Souls is much lower.
- 1.2.3：Ancient Shadow armor drop rate was reduced slightly.
- 1.2.1：Graphics variant for female characters added.
