Amarok's animation while inflicting the Frostburn Debuff.

The Amarok is a Hardmode Yoyo which has a chance to inflict the Frostburn Debuff whenever it hits an Enemy. It has a reach of 18 tiles, and its duration (time until it needs to be thrown out again) is 15 seconds. The Amarok has a 1 in 300 (0.33%) chance to drop from any enemy defeated in a Snow Biome. It can also drop in a Corrupt/Crimsoned or Hallowed Snow Biome.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase its average damage output by the same amount.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This is a weapon worth farming for. It can be acquired immediately upon entering Hardmode, and is the strongest Yoyo available prior to defeating a Mechanical Boss. If playing on Expert mode, you should have some extra money for reforging to Godly (each reforge costs between 5-10 gold), and you'll need it to compete with the tough new enemies.
    • King Slime is an excellent enemy to spawn, as each slime spawned can drop the Amarok, by Hardmode the player should have little trouble handling the boss, as well as an abundant supply of Gold/Platinum. This method is limited only by the number of Rubies the player can find or extract.
  • A good synergy can be made with the Magma Stone, to inflict both the Frostburn and On Fire! debuffs at the same time.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Inuit mythology, the Amarok is a gigantic wolf god, a lone hunter that attacks those hunting alone at night.
