The Flower of Frost is a Hardmode magic weapon that has a 28.5% (1/4) chance to be dropped by Ice Mimics in the Underground Snow Biome. It is functionally similar, though superior, to the Flower of Fire. 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 has a 50% chance of inflicting the Frostburn debuff for eight (16) seconds.
Its best modifier is Mythical.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In contrast to the Flower of Fire, the projectile functions in all liquids, falls slower, and gains height with each bounce.
- Similar to the Flower of Fire, this item is a reference to the Super Mario Brothers franchise, in which the "Ice Flower" is a power-up that gives the player blue clothes and allows the player to throw bouncing ice balls that freeze enemies on contact.
- The Flower of Frost is unusually cheap to reforge in comparison to the other Ice Mimic drops, costing only 33 33 with no modifiers.
- While the Flower of Fire and Flower of Frost's stems look incredibly similar, they are actually different; the leaves are shaped more circular on the Flower of Frost, and there is a distinct lack of shading as well.
