The Frozen Turtle Shell is a Hardmode accessory that has a 0.5% (1/200) chance to drop from the Ice Tortoise in the Underground Snow biome. It grants the Ice Barrier buff, with the effects varying between versions.
- Gives 25% damage reduction as long as their health remains at or below 50%.
- Gives the player 30 defense when below 25% health.
While not normally visible, it displays as a small blue circle spinning around the character that emits light when active.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- This accessory works well with the Shrimpy Truffle, which gives the player a damage and speed boost when at or below 50% life.
- The Frozen Turtle Shell is useful for fighting bosses and events, which usually expose the player to constant damage, thus activating the accessory more often than during regular gameplay.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Despite it being a Turtle Shell, it is dropped by the Ice Tortoise.
- The buff can be canceled, although it will immediately activate again.
