Ice Stars are Hardmode rogue weapons sold by the Archmage NPC. They are large throwing stars made of ice, which pierce 3 times and will fall after traveling a short distance. They are stackable and cannot be recovered after impacting the ground. Ice Stars also have slight homing abilities.
Performing a stealth strike with Ice Stars will cause the next star thrown to pierce infinitely for four seconds before disappearing, and release rings of 8 smaller ice stars on enemy hits. The smaller ice stars will not be released if 10 or more stars are already present.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The homing abilities of the weapon are extremely unreliable, as they will usually cause the projectile to fall quicker and not hit the enemy at all.
- The stars deal one-sixth of the weapon’s base damage, sharply home-in onto enemies, go through tiles, deal typeless damage, and cannot deal critical hits.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- They can be used as an effective weapon against The Destroyer as the slight homing can make them curve along its segments.
- It is also a potentially good weapon against the Aquatic Scourge due to the piercing.
