The North Pole is a Spear weapon dropped by the Ice Queen during the Frost Moon, and has the highest base damage of any Spear. It fires an icy spear projectile with no mana or ammo cost. 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.
- The snowflakes are affected by the direction of the weather, so make sure to adjust aim to compensate.
- Fighting enemies out in the open gives a huge advantage, especially during the holiday moon summonings.
- 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.
- The North Pole is the northernmost point of the Earth, and many Christmas stories state that Santa Claus lives there. As the Frost Moon is a Christmas-themed event, this item's name may refer to this, or alternatively to how the North Pole is a place of eternal frost.
- The North Pole is a spear, a form of polearm, so it may be a joke on the "North 'Pole'".
- Damage reduced from 75 to 73, projectile cap added.
- Fixed bug where north pole projectile could attain enough gravity velocity to pass through blocks.
- North Pole can no longer fire through walls.
