The Cryogenic Staff's homing ice ball and area of effect icicle attacks. Notice how the fire rate of the icicles increases the longer the sentry is deployed.

The Cryogenic Staff is a Hardmode sentry sold by the Archmage NPC for 48 Gold Coin after defeating all the Mechanical Bosses. When summoned, the ice sentry fires an ice ball that inflicts the Frostburn debuff. After being deployed for three seconds, the sentry begins to spin and fire icicles in all directions, with the fire rate of the icicles increasing over time until it reaches its top speed.

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 lasting advantage a Mythical Cryogenic Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
