The Flower of Frost inflicting the Frostburn debuff. Note how its projectile can ricochet off of blocks.

The Flower of Frost is a Hardmode magic weapon that has a 31.67% (19/60) chance to be dropped by Ice Mimics in the Ice 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% (Desktop Version 100%) chance of inflicting the Frostburn debuff for 8 (16) seconds.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

On all versions, the Flower of Frost has a 50% chance to inflict the Frostburn debuff in player-versus-player scenarios. However, the debuff can still be activated even if the player receiving damage dodges the initial shot with a Black Belt or Master Ninja Gear.

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 41667*41667 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.
