Moon Sword Obelisk
This Obelisk has 2 engravings on it, a sword and a moon. Simply put, come back to this Obelisk at night time and hit it with a sword to be given your reward. Again, this will be another big chest.
In the middle of one of the lands sits a single battery. To complete this puzzle, all you have to do is power it. You can power the battery by hitting it with a Thunder Rod or drinking a Thunder Potion. After powering the battery, you will be rewarded with 4 small chests.

In Foragers graveyard biome, one puzzle you will find will have 4 pedestals. Each one having a shape and color on top. Fill these gaps with one of each gem, ensuring the color and shape match. After filling the pedestals, you’ll be given a Big Chest for a reward.
One land will have 3 large bells as well as a sign. On the sign will be lines at 3 different heights. With each line representing a bell, follow this guide: If a line is low, ring the left bell.

Proximity Spike Traps
In the centre of one of the lands is 4 small chests. The only issue is that they are surrounded by spikes that deal 3 hearts of damage instantly. It’s possible to survive if you roll over and have more than 3 hearts however, the easier method is to use the Thunder Rod which you will get from the Ancient Tomb. You can also use bombs or fire arrows on the spikes to disable them and receive 4 Skull Chests.
You will find 4 unlit braziers on one of the lands. To receive your Big Chest, you will need to hit each of the braziers with a fire weapon, picaxe or bow to light them. Once they’re all lit, you’ll receive your reward.
Inside the Skull Galaxy is 4 pedestals, with signs giving hints on what to place on each of them. Completing this puzzle will reward you with the Skull Galaxy Seal. These hints and answers are:

- “What force and strength cannot get through, I, with my teeth can do” – Key
- “Gentle enough to soothe the skin, strong enough to break stone” – Bottle of Water
- “Alive without breath, cold as death, never thirsty, always drinking” – Fish
On one of the lands is a Big Chest. The problem is that it’s frozen and can’t be opened. To get access to the chest, use a fire bow, picaxe or sword to melt the ice. You can also use a grenade.
Inside the Frozen Galaxy is 5 computers, each one displaying symbols. Underneath the computers are a bunch of 1s and 0s, which is binary code. Convert this yourself, or set the computers to the following order: 5-3-4-2-4. You will receive the Frozen Galaxy Seal, 4 small chests and the Frozen Astronomer.
Our final Winter Biome Puzzle is the Stone Princess. This statue has a sign near it, which states “Only the flower which grows in the dark will awaken the Stone Princess”.

This is one of the more complicated puzzles. In a circle shape is 12 buttons, which you can interact with. They need to be pressed down in a certain order, with the order being shown on the ground of each biome. Press the buttons in this order to complete the puzzle and receive a Big Chest:
4 Small Chests in the middle of a land are on fire. To access them, you can put them out using a water bottle to get access to the chests and their rewards.
