Ice will not break when you fall on it
- Internal Item ID: 950
Ice Skates are a pre-Hardmode accessory that improves a player's movement control on most forms of ice (Thin Ice, Ice Blocks, the Corrupted/Crimson/Hallow versions, and Ice Rod blocks). The player accelerates faster, slides shorter distances, and will no longer cause thin ice to break when landing from falls or jumps. Ice Skates are found in Frozen Chests in the Ice biome. They can also be found inside Frozen Crates and Boreal Crates.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Ice Skates stop thin ice from being broken, but also allow the usual fall damage from landing on it. If the player is more prepared for the water underneath (and the Chilled debuff it inflicts in Expert Mode), it can be advised to take the Ice Skates off before falling on thin ice.
- While the Ice Skates provide additional speed on ice while worn by themselves, the player cannot move any faster than usual sprinting speed while wearing any combination of Ice Skates and sprinting boots. They can, however, reach sprinting speed much faster than on normal land.
- Frozen platforms, tables, work benches, pianos, dressers, and bookcases are not affected by ice skates.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- When worn on a female character, ice skates appear far wider than most other footwear accessories, as if to fit a male character.
