    Isn't it sort of funny how the best.. in fact, the only mining-related armor set is prehardmode? Well, I plan to do something about it.

    A somewhat rare enemy that resembles a drilling machine and follows the Worm AI. It spawns only after at least one mechanical boss has been defeated.

    1000 health.
    95 damage (holy...!)
    40 defense.

    Drops: Excavation Parts (100%).

    Tunnel Crown
    8 defense

    12 Hallowed Bars
    10 Cogs
    Excavation Parts

    Provides light when worn. +10% mining speed.

    Tunnel Breastplate
    19 defense

    20 Hallowed Bars
    14 Cogs
    Excavation Parts

    +1 tile reach. +10% mining speed.

    Tunnel Leggings
    10 defense

    14 Hallowed Bars
    12 Cogs
    Excavation Parts

    +12% movement speed. +10% mining speed.

    Set bonus: grants Tunnel Vision, which outlines the block layout of the screen.

    What do you think? Good? Not so good?
    If it helps, here are some sprites provided by Sir Cutswood.

    Well we have mining gear
    Why not? (I said that 500 times allready)

    I'd say "Excavator's Armor" sounds cooler than "Tunnel Armor", but other than that I am all for this idea. However, a little more elaboration on the Tunnel Vision would be nice.

    Sounds like a nice idea.
    But what does that mean?

    Basically, it highlights the outline of every block on the map, allowing the wearer to discover caves.

    No offense, but I don't really like this idea. It would be sort of a waste of armor.

    Great idea, simple but useful idea. I like the idea of the boss and the buff gained from the set. A nice switchout for when you're gathering ores. Also, I love the details included, way easier to review.

    Originality 4.5/5. Execution 4/5. Elaboration: 4/5. Ideas 4/5. Artwork: 4/5.

    And all the other armor sets aren't a "waste of armor" because...?

    For me it's not a waste in any way, I find it as a very useful tool. Whenever I'm battling, I can simply switch it out with my regular armor.

    You have my support. This is a lot cooler looking than the miner's outfit too in my opinion.
