Terraria (Wiki): Cool Whip


Everything you need to know

General Information

The Cool Whip is a whip that pierces and damages multiple enemies, granting the A Nice Buff buff (desktop, mobile, console) for 3s and inflicting the Frostbite debuff (100%) for 4s. The last enemy hit by the Cool Whip is targeted by summoned sentries and minions, amplified with +6ATK. A 30% damage reduction penalty is also applied to consecutive hits.

During combat, the Cool Whip can be devastating against large waves of enemies. Its extremely weak knockback is compensated by the granted buff that acts as decent crowd control. As such, the Cool Whip is best treated as a support whip then switching to the main whip.

The Cool Whip can also be used for cave exploration and ore discovery because of the emitted bright particles.

Because of the Cool Whip’s average damage reduction penalty, it should be used in medium-scale combat contrary to large waves most whips can handle.

The Cool Whip is best modified with Legendary to improve all stats.
