Veneretio used to post his emblem-purchased gear picks every major content patch, before his untimely retirement. I of course am no Veneretio, but since I have to construct my pick order myself now, I submit them for popular consumption.
- Forgesmelter Waistplate – Belt – 1650 VP
- Signet of the Resolute – Ring – 1250 VP
- Guardspike Choker – Neck – 1250 VP
- Indefatigable Greatcloak – Cloak – 1250 VP
- Bladeshatter Treads – Boots – 1650 VP (These are BoE – use an alt to buy them ASAP if you have one.)
- Ring of Torn Flesh – Ring – 1250 VP
- Chestplate of the Unshakable Titan – 2200 VP
Note that only numbers 1-4 are best in slot pre-hardmode; whether or not you want to buy 5-7 will depend on if better has dropped for you already.
