- Ball of Frost
The Flower of Frost is a Hardmode magic weapon that has a
31.67*19/60 (31.67%) chance to be dropped by Ice Mimics in the Ice biome. It launches a slow, non-piercing Ball of Frost that ricochets up to seven times (but not off of platforms), dissipating on the eighth. It can inflict the Frostburn debuff upon impact.
Its best modifier is Mythical.
- On all versions, the Flower of Frost has a 50% chance to inflict the Frostburn debuff in player-versus-player scenarios. However, the debuff can still be activated even if the player receiving damage dodges the initial shot, e.g. with a Black Belt or Master Ninja Gear.
- The Flower of Frost can be a powerful weapon in early Hardmode because of its relatively high DPS, ease to obtain and bouncing properties.
- The Flower of Frost can be considered the Hardmode upgrade to the pre-Hardmode Flower of Fire.
- Similar to the Flower of Fire, the Flower of Frost is a reference to the Super Mario platform game series, in which the Ice Flower is a power-up that gives the player the ability to throw bouncing ice balls that freeze enemies on contact.
- While the Flower of Fire and Flower of Frost's stems look very similar, they are actually different: the leaves are more circular on the Flower of Frost, and there is a distinct lack of shading as well.
- In contrast to the Ball of Fire, the Ball of Frost can move through all liquids, falls slower, and gains height with each bounce.
