How To Craft the Frostner Weapon

Ancient Bark is one of the easier materials to gather, head to the swamp biome and cut down some Ancient Trees, they will drop bark. Silver can be mined in the Mountain biome but be sure you're prepared for the harsh weather! Ymir Flesh can only be purchased from Haldor the trader, read more on him here. Lastly, you'll need Freeze Glands, these are what give the Frostner its unique properties.

Once you have all the items above, go to your Forge, bearing in mind it must be level 3 or higher and follow this recipe:

  • 10x Ancient Bark 
  • 30x Silver
  • 5x Ymir Flesh
  • 5x Freeze Gland
