Notes[edit]

Delicious Desserts are not acquired in the bitter cold despite the achievements description, you get them at the heart in the southeast.
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.
  • There are several Diving Goggles placed around the Bitter Cold area. All of them are placed above solid ice. For Dive Master: Cold Feet 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.
  • Several collections components can can be bought and sold on the Trading Post.
