The Avalanche Scepter is a craftable Pre-Hardmode shamanic weapon that has a 1/7 chance to be obtained in Ice Chests in the Ice biome. On use, it fires an icicle that is slightly affected by gravity. After three hits, an icicle will form above the player's head; continual hits will cause the icicle to grow in size, until the tenth hit, which causes it to be launched downwards for extreme damage. If the player's Movement Speed Empowerments run out, the icicle will automatically dissipate.
Hitting enemies provides the Level I Movement Speed Empowerment to the player.
