The 寒霜盔甲 is a 困难模式 盔甲 set that grants the ability to inflict 霜冻 on enemies with melee or ranged attacks when the whole set is worn, as well as causing all ranged and melee attacks to give off light.
In the , 版冰雪巨人 will drop a random piece of Frost armor; in the 电脑版, 主机版, and 移动版s, Ice Golem will drop the 寒霜核 required to craft this armor (it will take three Ice Golem kills to get the full armor set). Ice Golems spawn in the 雪原生物群落 during a 暴雪 in Hardmode.
Visually, wearing the set causes a "snow trail" to be left behind the player as they walk, similar to running with 赫尔墨斯靴. Also, taking damage causes the shattering sound heard when breaking through thin ice.
The 沙漠's 禁戒盔甲 is the counterpart to this armor set, buffing magic and summon abilities instead of melee and ranged.
- The Frost armor set can easily be farmed by creating a large one sided trench with a roof over the top of it with a one block hole in it. The 冰雪巨人 will not be able to shoot you because of its 'laser' spawning off-center when you are above it. This is useful because Frost armor has a better armor value than most hardmode alternatives.
- The Frostburn debuff is particularly devastating when used against worm enemies because it affects each segment, thereby multiplying the damage dealt by the number of affected segments.
- Unfortunately, 毁灭者 is immune to the debuff, thus limiting the effectiveness of this strategy.
- The debuff is also useful for most bosses as only three of them (The Destroyer, 猪龙鱼公爵 and 哀木) are immune.
- The Frostburn effect adds light to all melee and ranged attacks, including tools such as 镐s and 钻头s, and to ordinary ammunition, such as that used by the 无尽箭袋 and 无尽火枪袋.
- This makes the armor set very useful for exploring caves.
- It is worth noting that selling the components of Frost armor results in more profit than selling the crafted set.
- For melee users, pairing this armor with 岩浆石/烈火手套 and a 瓶子 will inflict 3 different debuffs on a single hit, possibly more if the weapon itself inflicts another debuff.
- Particularly useful when used with the Shadowflame weapons.
- For ranged users, this set of armor has more defense than Hallowed Armor with their respective headpiece. It can be easily obtained during early hardmode, meaning that it is a very potent set of armor and should not be taken lightly.
- Prior to 1.3, if the Breastplate and Leggings were paired with a gold helmet, and all pieces were dyed with Blue Flame and Black dye, it would cause an afterimage and pulsing aura, akin to Hallowed armor. This was the armor Red used to wear before his specific set was added.
- The breastplate and leggings of Frost armor look strikingly similar to the breastplate and greaves of 熔岩盔甲.
- The sound effect when a player is struck while wearing Frost armor takes priority over other items that also alter the sound effect of a player being struck, such as the 月光护身符 at night.
- 22.214.171.124：Now requires Titanium Bars/Adamantite Bars instead of Hallowed Bars to craft.
- 126.96.36.199：Frost Armor now correctly plays a special sound when hit.
- Now is obtained by combining 寒霜核s (dropped by the 冰雪巨人) with 神圣锭s.
- Wearing Frost Armor no longer makes 尖球机关s give Frostburn debuffs.
- 1.2.1：Graphics variant for female characters added.
- 188.8.131.52：The Frost Breastplate now correctly gives bonus based off the tooltip.
