Ritual of Love Event Guide: Camor's Ritual
By Carmen
Guide on how to complete the Valentine's Day Event Camor's Ritual and get the 3 hidden achievements and Seasonal skills
Includes spoiler-free hints!
What is up boy and girls and other genders of love and war, it's the Chaoswalker Pyromancer with the new and epic Rare weapon Shard of Chaos, here today with the second Soulstone Survivors Steam Guide on how to do the Ritual of Love Event 2023

This time the event should be wayyy simpler compared to the Winterfall one (maybe), but alas I've decided to make a guide to help my fellow subscrivors!

Ritual of Love Event: 13 Feb - 26 Feb
Find new secrets in the heart of the woods and unlock unique skills, if you can! Secret will be permanently available in-game.
Spoiler-free Hints
Feel free to think about what you're supposed to do
Q: Question, H: Hint, A: Answer

Q. What map do I go?
H. The new update has a map specifically reworked for this, it's a Valentine's event so anything Spring-y
A. The Third Map, The Whispering Grove

Q. What do I do on the map?
H. Walk around the map
A. You should find a few altars, but only one has something in front of it

Q. Something spawned! But it's untouchable!?
H. Wait for something else to spawn
A. Pylons will spawn randomly on the map

Q. Ok but they're also untouchable?
H. Something might be able to hit them
A. Only the angel's shots can destroy the pylons

Q. What now?
H. More pylons will spawn randomly
A. Destroy 8 to finish the event
Map: The Whispering Grove
Enter The Whispering Grove (Map 3, Forest map, Trees map, etc) at any Curse Intensity (or if you want to do this once, just Intensity 34+, see Medium and Hard)

To unlock this map, defeat 3 Bosses from the previous map, 2 from the previous previous...
The Heart of the Woods
After you spawn in, walk your way towards the bottom left corner of the map
You should see a pink heart-shaped crystal lying on a sigil on the ground in front of an altar

Destroy it to start the event
Once started, in which there will a sound cue of a bell chiming, you are locked into the event for the rest of the run

You have only two minutes (2:00) of run time to start the event or the heart will shatter, locking the event for the rest of the run

Camor, the Lovable Archer
When the event starts, an invulnerable boss Camor will spawn
Your goal in the event is to, well... kill him, which may seem impossible but he has one major weakness

However the weakness does not spawn until like 2 minutes into the event...
The Pylons of Camor
Approximately two minutes into the event, the bell will chime again and a strange also invulnerable pylon with a heart-shaped crystal will spawn somewhere on the map

They would then spawn periodically for the rest of the event
(It seems like them spawning requires a certain number of waves of Lords killed but I cannot confirm)

You will have to walk around to find it, as there is no UI leading to it

The only way to destroy the pylons is by Camor shooting it once
You can achieve this by making him aim his shot at you, by standing anywhere in his skillshot range when you're close enough
Note that his projectile does not pass through obstacles, so positioning well is very important

Once destroyed, the bell will chime but this does not mean a new pylon has spawned

Closer to the end of the event, the bells will chime at a higher pitch and signifying you almost finishing it
After destroying a total of 8 Camor's Pylons, Camor will instantly die and you will hopefully receive one or up to three achievements!
You can safely exit the game from the pause menu from hereon as the event does not require you to finish the run
Medium and Hard
Same as the previous event, there are 2 other secret skills and achievements, in which you would need to do the same thing but with Curse Intensities 18+ and 34+ respectively

Doing 34+ first will give you all 3 achievements at once, and doing 18+ first will give you the bottom 2

Any Curses work as long as you hit the threshold

Here are the skills (with +0% damage and cast frequency) you unlock from completing the event, hover over the spoiler text on PC:

Easy (0+ Curse Intensity)

Medium (18+ Curse Intensity)

Hard (34+ Curse Intensity)
My Build
Since this event does not really require killing anything with your own skills (except for the first heart), I opted for a tanky-ish sustain build

Other skills I'd say are good are Arcane Shield / Shield Wall and other healing skills

Runes because I'm a ding dong and forgot the achievement popup covers it:
Recklessness, Generalist, Critical Mastery, Surefooted, and Weapon Expert

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q. Is the event limited?
No, it's permanent

Q. Can I do the event on Endless?
A. No, the heart crystal only spawn if your selected map is The Whispering Grove, if you go into that map using a portal (ie from Endless) it will not spawn

Q. Are there visual cues for the pylons spawning? I'm deaf / have my audio turned off
Sadly no
its not the secretest secret, but having any UI defeats the purpose, like it would for the Bumble lair as well. Even if it takes a few rounds for someone without sound to notice "what the hell are those things", thats ok, the idea is that hopefully the player will be curious about it. The sound cues do help a lot with the perception, but arent necessary

Q. Is there a Discord? Wiki?
Yes I always hang out on the Game Smithing server[] 24/7, feel free to ask any questions
Wiki is

i already dit it and it was easy with this setup

@begformercy chaotic inferno is pretty nice
but u dont have executioner? it can replace focus fire here
✪ttv.iBegformercy✪ Feb 15, 2023 @ 3:20am

this was for me the easiest to beat this
Carmen  [author] Feb 14, 2023 @ 8:01am 
actually I think that happened to me when alpha first came out, i took full curse for no reason & couldnt do the event
Trashtarte Feb 14, 2023 @ 6:48am 
Good, then they fixed it already. When the patch first dropped if you ran void presence you'd never see Camor spawn.
Carmen  [author] Feb 14, 2023 @ 2:52am 
@Ashtarte wdym mutually exclusive? I tried Void Presence and Camor still spawned

but yea i wont recommend using Void Presence for the events anyway
Trashtarte Feb 14, 2023 @ 2:26am 
Not sure if fixed yet or not but if do not attempt this while running Void Presence. The two seem mutually exclusive.
Carmen  [author] Feb 13, 2023 @ 8:04pm 
@Spork thanks I fixed it
