Map: The Frozen Wastelands

Let’s enter the Frozen Wastelands  (Map 4, Snow map, Winter map, etc) at the Curse intensity 34+, and to unlock this map, defeat 4 Bosses from the previous map, 3 from the previous map, and 2 from the previous.

Map: The Frozen Wastelands

The 5 Winter Sigils

There will be 5 large Winter Sigils that are laid across the Winter Map in a pentagonal/star shape. They are colored the same as the 5 Soulstones dropped from each wave of bosses. To activate the sigils, the order is going to be the same as the Soulstone dropped by the bosses. Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, and Purple, ignore the Minor Soulstones.

-> Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, and Purple, ignore the Minor Soulstones. 

Red Sigil

At the start of the game, just keep walking directly to the bottom right side of the map to meet the Red Winter Sigil. Kill the boss from the first wave (400 km) on the Red Sigil, the boss must die inside the Sigil, which would drop the red Soulstone and light up the Sigil. When activated, you can tell the Sigil’s color, you may ignore it for the rest of the run.

Blue Sigil

Once activated, the Red Sigil moves directly to the center left of the map to meet up with the Blue Sigil. Like before, kill the boss from the second wave (850 kills) on the Blue Sigil, the boss must die inside the Sigil that would drop the blue Soulstone and light up that sigil.

Yellow, Green, and Purple Sigils

You are meant to understand now what’s going on. Kill each wave of the boss on that sigil in the order Red -> Blue -> Yellow -> Green -> Purple. Their positions on the map are bottom right -> center left -> top right -> bottom center -> top center, making a star shape! You should see the Christmas Portal at the end of the run as long as you have all 5 sigils lit up.

Yellow Sigils
 Green Sigils
Purple Sigils

Christmas Portal

When you’ve activated all 5 sigils, do not go into any of the 3 center portals. Instead, walk bottom right below the Red sigil and into the green Christmas Portal.
