In this article, we will learn about the Frost Walker in Minecraft. What is it, how can we obtain it, what is it used for, etc.? Let’s find out!
What is Frost Walking?
The Frost Walker is an enchantment on boots that creates frosted ice blocks when walking over water and causes the wearer to be immune to damage from certain blocks such as campfires and magma blocks when stepped on.
How can we obtain it?
This is a treasure enchantment that can be obtained only from chest loot, fishing, raid drops, or trading for enchanted books. It cannot be obtained regularly through the enchanting table.
This makes the Frost Walker one of the rarer enchantments in Minecraft and a commonly sought-after enchantment.
How can we use it?
Usage is pretty simple and self-explanatory. Basically, if the player stands on any still (non-moving) water block, that particular block and its surroundings are going to be turned into ice (circle radius). This works only if the player is on the ground. The water blocks must also be on the same level as the block being moved to in order to become ice.
Iced blocks can melt after a while, so continuous motion is required for the player to be able to stay above the ice and not fall. Ice created from Frost Walker lasts longer during the night because there is no sunlight to melt it. Frost Walker also eliminates all damage from magma blocks and campfires, but not lava. The boots do not take durability damage while on these blocks and can be used to mitigate damage from ignited charcoal as well.
- Frost Walker and Depth Strider cannot work together at the same time because they’re mutually exclusive meaning that they cancel each other.
- Enchanted boots with Frost Walker can be applied on foxes when held.
