If you're seeking the best build for this class, this guide will give you a strong set of equipment and information on where to get them and how to make them.

With this Summoner build, you'll get a lot of strong summon weapons and armor, as well as several accessories with a lot of damage potential.

Armor: Stardust Set


The Stardust armor set is presently the strongest option for the Summoner because of its inherent ability to augment summon weapons, which is important for this class.

Three things are included in the set:

  • Helmet made with stardust
  • Plate with a Stardust Pattern
  • Leggings with a Stardust Pattern

Each item requires the use of two distinct kinds of resources in varying quantities:

  • There are a total of 45 Stardust Fragments
  • There are a total of 36. Luminite Bars are a kind of luminite that emits light

When the Lunar Events are unlocked after defeating the Lunatic Cultist monster in the Dungeon, Stardust Fragments may be gathered from the Stardust Pillar. The Lunar Events can be accessed by visiting the Stardust Pillar.

You will need a total of 45x Stardust Fragments to complete all three items in the Stardust set.

Luminite Bars are made from Luminite, a substance dropped by the Moon Lord monster and maybe fashioned into various shapes and sizes.

At the Ancient Manipulator crafting station, Luminite may be melted down to form bars of light. The Stardust armor will need a total of 36x Luminite Bars to complete.

For each set of armor, the following is an accurate breakdown of all of the materials that will be required:


  • Stardust Helmet
  • Stardust Leggings
  • Stardust Plate


  • 10x Stardust Fragment
  • 8x Luminite Bar
  • 15x Stardust Fragment
  • 12x Luminite Bar
  • 20x Stardust Fragment
  • 16x Luminite Bar

An Ancient Manipulator is also a place where you may construct Stardust Armor.

The main advantages are as follows:

When you finish the set, you will get a permanent companion in the shape of Stardust Guardian, who will immediately fight any hostile creatures or NPCs who come into contact with you. The Guardian now hits adversaries with a torrent of devastating punches, thanks to the 1.4 update.

The following bonuses are awarded upon completing the set:

  • +66% minion damage
  • +5 minion capacity

With a full set plus the additional perks included in this setup, you will be able to summon a total of 11 minions at a time. The attacking capability of the armor more than makes up for the relatively weak protection capabilities of the armor.

Stardust Dragon Stuff: Zenith; Terraprisma; and Stardust

Zenith Sword


Summoners that prefer to depend on powerful offensive weapons should use Zenith, Terraria's ultimate sword.

A total of 10 additional swords from the game are required to make this one. They're all here:

  • Terra Blade
  • Meowmere
  • Star Wrath
  • Influx Waver
  • Horseman's Blade
  • Seedler
  • Starfury
  • Bee Keeper
  • Enchanted Sword
  • Copper Shortsword

Moon Lord drops the majority of these words. In order to create Zenith, you must have all 10 swords in your possession.



This is the most effective summon weapon in a 1.14 update and the newest.

As an alternative to sending forth hordes of minions, it merely multiplies its own number, allowing it to take on a larger number of foes at once.

The Empress of Light may be defeated in the Hallow to gain this weapon. Using this guide, you'll learn all you need to know about this battle.

Stardust Dragon Staff


A flying dragon is summoned by this powerful summon weapon. Reusing the Stardust Dragon Staff does not create a new Stardust Dragon, as is the case with other summoning weapons.

While Zenith & Terraprisma are better at dealing with hordes of adversaries, the staff is better at dealing with solitary targets, including such bosses or formidable enemies.

You may use 18x Stardust Fragments to make a Stardust Dragon Staff at the Ancient Manipulator.

Summoner Accessories

Summoner Emblem


Summon weapon minions already have a lot of power, but the Summoner Emblem boosts their damage output by an additional 15% if used.

The Wall of Flesh boss can be found in The Underworld and drops this item.

The Avenger's Crest


The damage of the weapons must be increased since you'll be employing a variety of weapons, such as summon weapons. All of your weapons get a 12% boost in damage thanks to this accessory.

The following formula may be used to make an Avenger Emblem in the Tinkerer's Workshop:

  • 1x Warrior Emblem
  • 5x Soul of Might
  • 5x Soul of Sight
  • 5x Soul of Fright

Destroyer Emblem


It gives your character a benefit in terms of damage. It raises your critical hit probability by 8% while increasing your total damage output by 10%.

The Avenger Emblem and the Eye of the Golem may be used to make the Destroyer Emblem in the Tinkerer's Workshop.

Necromantic Scroll


Due to the addition of this item, your summoned minions will have an additional one, and their summon damage will increase by 10%.

During the Pumpkin Moon event, a mini-boss named Mourning Wood drops a Necromantic Scroll.

Papyrus Scarab


The Necromantic scroll stacks with this item, which grants an additional summon minion and a 15% boost to summon damage.

The Tinkerer's Workshop's Necromantic Scroll & Hercules Beetle may make Papyrus Scarab.

Celestial Shell


The last item is perhaps the most crucial in enhancing your character's appearance. Your damage, melee speed, critical hit chance, life regen, defense, and mining speed are all boosted.

The Tinkerer's Workshop has Celestial Stone & Moon Shell, which may be used to make this magnificent item.
