Since the Ice Golem is a very tall creature, the player may find wise to use naturally found terrain features to stop and block his attacks, allowing easy grinding even in early Hardmode.

The Ice Golem is an uncommon Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Snow biome during normal or heavy Blizzards ("Rain" or "Heavy Rain" on the Weather Radio), day or night. Ice Golems walk slowly and fire ranged blue lasers that freeze players. They are immune to the Poisoned, Venom, Confused, and Frostburn debuffs.

It is one of the few enemies that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If the Ice Golem can't see the player with its head, it will try to flee from the screen. To farm it, attack it continuously to prevent it from escaping.
  • Ice Golems spawn more frequently at night, like most other enemies.
  • Ice Golems are considered rare creatures by the Lifeform Analyzer, so it may be useful to carry this (or its derivatives) when farming them.
  • Even though 300 Snow Blocks, Ice Blocks (of any type) or Snow Bricks define a Snow biome it seems that there has to be at least 400 Snow Blocks of any type present on the screen for the Ice Golem to spawn.
  • On the 3DS logo.svg version, the Ice Golems will drop the Frost Armor instead of the Frost Core.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Even though the Ice Golem can be detected with the Lifeform Analyzer, it is more effective to fly around while trying to hunt them down and just watch for the Ice Lasers.

History[edit | edit source]
