The Ice Fairy Staff is a Hardmode summon weapon that is dropped by Blizzard Bats and Snow Elementals found during Blizzards. It spawns an Icy Fairy which flies around and attacks enemies by firing rapid, short-ranged bursts of frost at them; this attack briefly inflicts the Freezing debuff, slowing the target's movement significantly. Like other minions, Icy Fairies are invincible and follow the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff.
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Ice Fairy Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
