The Boreal Crate is a Hardmode crate that can only be fished in the Snow and Ice biome. Boreal Crates contain items found in standard crates, and always contain one item normally found in Frozen Chests. Its pre-Hardmode counterpart is the Frozen Crate.
- Only one type of ore and one type of bar can drop, not both a pre-Hardmode type of ore and a Hardmode type of ore, or both a pre-Hardmode type of bar and a Hardmode type of bar. The table above implies otherwise with the respective groups being in separate rows, but that is for readability purposes. The chance that a type of ore is dropped is 1/7 (14.29%), and the chance that a type of bar is dropped is 1/4 (25%).
- The Fish is significantly less rare in Boreal Crates than in Frozen Chests, where it can only be found at a 1 in 50 rate.
- Desktop 1.4.4:
- Reduced quantity of dropped ores from 30–49 to 20–35.
- Reduced quantity of dropped pre-Hardmode bars from 10–20 to 6–16.
- Reduced quantity of dropped Hardmode bars from 8–20 to 5–16.
- Now used to craft the Frozen Crate via shimmer.
