What Is The Pill Bottle: How To Use

Sigil To Unlock Dark Aether Rift

The Pill Bottle is a Sigil that you will place on top of a Rift Pedestal with a Skull Mark on it.

Gather 4 Key Items To Spawn A Mawloom

There are also 3 other keys, making 4 in total. By placing all 4 keys on the correct pedestal you summon a Mawloom, an enemy that drops a Sigil which is used to open The Dark Aethal Rift.

Pill Bottle

With Just The Pill Bottle, The Dark Aether Rift Won't Open

There are a total of 4 Sigils, and you will need to have all 4 with you to open the Dark Aether Rift. The Pill Bottle by itself will not unlock the Rift.

Do NOT Place The Pill Bottle Until You Have All 4

To unlock the Dark Aether Rift, you will need 4 Sigils that match each of the markings on the Pedestals. When you place the Pill Bottle on the Pedestal, you will not be able to pick it back up and it will disappear in the next match. Due to this, do not place the Pill Bottle on the pedestal until you have all 4 Sigils.
