  1. ^ Delicious Desserts:
    Delicious Desserts are not acquired in the Bitter Cold despite the achievements description, you get Winterberry Sorbet at the heart Farmer Simooba in the southeast, and give it to Koollan the Little Builder.
  2. ^ Dive Master: Cold Feet: There are several Diving Goggles placed around the Bitter Cold area. All of them are placed above solid ice. To be successful, you must use the highest one, in the southeastern corner of the area. This one will allow you to safely break through the ice to the water below; aim for the obvious patch of ice. There is also an Icebound Chest in the water below the dive point. Using any of the other dive points will result in the ice not breaking and you taking falling damage.
  3. ^ Gift of Aurene: Components for the Gift of Aurene collection can be bought and sold on the Trading Post. Each part can only be crafted once per day per account, on the standard daily reset. The parts are tradable, but the complete doll is account-bound.
  4. ^ Heart, Moxie, and Many Sweaters:
    Heart, Moxie, and Many Sweaters does not require the player to be alive when they have 20 stacks of Bitter Cold. Bitter Cold accumulates even when defeated, so simply being in a Bitter Cold area long enough will grant the achievement. Player tested on 11/28/22: This seems to have been patched, but you can still die and accumulate 20 stacks, then use a Revive Orb to get the achievement
  5. ^ Playing Chicken: The achievement can be completed by kicking a chicken until it explodes. Chickens can be found in the grawl encampment near the Chokocooka's Throne POI.


  • The "Playing Chicken" achievement, specifically the title 'Chicken Chaser' is likely a reference to the Fable video game series, in which the protagonist is given the derisive nickname "Chicken Chaser" by the townsfolk. This could also be a reference to the Legend of Zelda video game series, where repeatedly attacking a cucco (that game's version of chicken) has them attack Link.
