The Ice Staff temporarily freezes an animal or monster after 1-4 blasts. Small mobs such as birds and rabbits take one blast to be frozen, while big ones such as Treeguards take four blasts before they are frozen. Each use costs 5% durability equating to 20 uses.
Creatures that periodically drop things (such as Beefalos producing Manure) will still leave them behind while frozen.
In the Reign of Giants DLC, the Ice Staff can be used to extinguish smoldering or burning objects.
Mobs have varying resistance to the Ice Staff's freezing effect and may require several charges in order to be frozen.
