Yes, you have read that correctly. The ice rod is actually considered a weapon. Even though I don’t personally like it so much to defend from enemies I do really like the ice blocks it creates for you. You can use the weapon to produce ice blocks for you to get to very high reach areas. Because of this amazing feature, we think it’s important to have the ice rod weapon in your inventory.

The first thing you need to do is find the wizard. The wizard can be found somewhere on the ground after you have defeated the Wall of Flesh. Once you find him, a message will pop up thanking you for saving him. Then you have the choice to either shop or close.

Next, hit the shop button to bring him to your home. From there you can purchase the Terraria Ice Rod for 1 platinum coin.

It all depends on what you are looking to do with it.
