    First off, it's kinda weird how a lot of endgame stuff requires chlorophyte or hallowed bars to craft, like frost and spectre armor. They're changing the frost armor recipe in 1.3, but chlorophyte bars are still used to craft spectre armor.

    Templite ore

    Spawns underground after the wall of flesh is defeated. can be mined with a picksaw.

    Templite bar
    crafted with 4 Templite ore at an adamantite or titanium forge
    used to make spectre (and maybe turtle and shroomite) armor instead of chlorophyte

    Used in the place of hallowed and chlorophyte bars for crafting pumpkin moon medallions and spectre armor.

    Templite Bullet
    20 damage
    crafted with 1 templite bar at a mythril or orichalcum anvil(makes 40)

    What Templite would add is generic set bonuses, like the old hardmode armor sets, and Hallowed armor. It would also provide a generic bar(aka ingot) that could be used to craft things that don't really have much connection to hallowed or chlorophyte bars.

    Feedback is always appreciated!

    Sprites would be welcome, i imagine it to look silvery in color.

    I'm not sure if adding another tier to Terraria would change much. No support.

    this isn't just another tier, the goal is to give more options for endgame players. these armors allow the player to focus on defense, attack speed, or damage. also, it gives a generic material that other things can be made out of. currently, most endgame items require hallowed or chlorophyte bars, and that doesn't always make sense.
     
  4. Can I Get Uhhh

    Can I Get Uhhh Spazmatism

    Actually it is a tier. But I'm not supporting this because people know what class they want to be during late hardmode.

    it is a tier, yes. but it allows players to focus specifically on speed, damage, or defense. right now, ranged only gets to choose between bows, guns, and rockets, and magic gets either lifesteal or damage. and then there's beetle, which has a special ability that charges up. this armor allows people to just get a simple, stat-increasing set bonus, like 1.1 and prehardmode armor. this is for people who don't want a complex set bonus. also, it adds generic arrows and bullets with high damage and no special effects.
     
  6. Can I Get Uhhh

    Can I Get Uhhh Spazmatism

    You CAN switch armors out. When you mentioned Shroomite is either arrows, bullets or rockets I want to say that the majority of people will chose one of them.
     
  7. neoselket

    neoselket Ice Queen

    by switching armors out, i assume you mean mixing pieces from different sets. but if you do that, you get no set bonus, and your defense will be wonky. and yes, most people will choose one of them, but they don't get any armor that just focuses on defense or speed, just one armor set that only boosts one type of attack and a set bonus that only works when they're suicidally standing still. not a lot of variety. as for mages, they either have lifesteal or high damage, but always low defense. and melee gets either thorns, combo-based higher damage, or defense that has to charge up. however, some people like just having a simple stat-increasing armor.
     
  8. Can I Get Uhhh

    Can I Get Uhhh Spazmatism

    No that was just a "basic" solution. There's almost nobody I know that wants to be all classes. There's really no point much.
     
  9. neoselket

    neoselket Ice Queen

    what do you mean, "all classes"? there's a melee set, and a magic set. and there's also bullets and arrows that have a generic high damage and no special effects.
     
  10. Can I Get Uhhh

    Can I Get Uhhh Spazmatism

    I said there's not many people who want to be all the classes at once.

    what does that have to do with this?

    I don’t see how this is any better than chlorophyte. Chlorophyte has the nifty ability to be farmable. This however, does not. Also I prefer hallowed bars having a use via the pumpkin moon medalion. This would make summoning pumpkin moons a slow and grindy process.

    ok, what would you change about it? and what do you think of the armors?
     
  14. Can I Get Uhhh

    Can I Get Uhhh Spazmatism

    A lot in-fact!

    Nothing really, I don’t really agree with this suggestion. I’d just lower the ore cost per bar for Chlorophyte. I’m also not a big fan of boring armor bonuses and generic weapons. Come up with something “more interesting” and Then I can give proper feedback.
     
  16. neoselket

    neoselket Ice Queen

    that's kind of the entire point of this armor. there are already a bunch of endgame "interesting" armor sets, but the only one that gives simple stat increases is hallowed, which isn't powerful enough for anything past the mech bosses. and why must all armors have a fancy special effect beyond simple stat increases?

    im sorry, but you're going to have to be more specific. i do not see how this suggestion has anything to do with people trying to be all classes at once.
     
  17. Can I Get Uhhh

    Can I Get Uhhh Spazmatism

    You made this suggestion to make a tier that supports all classes, not just one class but all of them.
     
  18. MiltVala

    MiltVala Plantera

    Because hallowed armor is boring. So is adamantite, mythril, and cobalt. Raw stat armors can be easily achieved through mixing armor sets. As an example, an extremely popular ranger load out is shroomite armor and leggings with a chlorophyte helmet. Gives better raw stats and ammo conservation than pure shroomite. However, you loose the stealth ability and the buffs you get from them.
     
  19. neoselket

    neoselket Ice Queen

    all classes, yes, but not all at once. it's like adamantite and hallowed, there's options for all classes but you can't have all headgear all at once.
     
  20. Can I Get Uhhh

    Can I Get Uhhh Spazmatism

    If that's so then this has no point. This is barely further than the Chlorophyte Tier.
