Animation of the North Pole.

The North Pole is a spear dropped by the Ice Queen during the Frost Moon event, and has the highest base damage of any spear. It fires an icy spear projectile with no mana or ammo cost similar to the Daybreak. The projectile travels straight and is then affected by gravity. It leaves a trail of snowflakes that deal damage, effectively "carpet bombing" the area between the player and the landing point of the projectile. The projectile will break upon contact with any enemy or block, and cannot be swung continuously.

Its best Modifier is Godly.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The snowflakes are affected by the direction of the weather, so make sure to adjust aim to compensate.
  • The projectiles are affected by liquids; when used underwater they travel half the normal distance before being affected by gravity and arc downwards very sharply. This does not reduce the number of snowflakes spawned per projectile, however, leading to a denser cluster of flakes.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Fighting enemies out in the open gives a huge advantage.
  • Aim it straight up and launch the missile upwards to allow all the snowflakes to descend and rain unrelenting damage against large targets. This can destroy bosses with ease.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The North Pole is the northernmost point of the Earth, traditionally stated as the location of Santa Claus' home. Being a spear, like a pole, it uses North Pole as a pun. It follows from the weapon being dropped during the Christmas-themed Frost Moon event.
