Castlevania: Lords of Shadow gem, scroll and upgrade guide

CHAPTER 10: Titan Graveyard


Scroll #1

There is a corpse to your right just after you finish climbing down the cliff face. He holds a scroll.

Scroll #2

Here, in the area where you fight the two skeleton warriors, you’ll see this corpse.

Light Magic Gem #1

To the left of where you find scroll #2, there is a fallen titan that you can climb. Do so, then drop down on the other side to find a fallen knight carrying a gem.

Life Magic Gem

BEFORE you use the rune to move the titan’s arm, run along the arm and you’ll reach a small island holding a dead knight.

Scroll #3

Once you have moved the titan arm using the rune, follow the new path. Leap to the fallen titan on the right, then continue right and jump across to another area that contains a fallen knight and a bag of holy water.

Shadow Gem

After you jump to the fallen titan on the left, work your way around the front of the titan to find a dead Brotherhood knight holding a Shadow Gem.

Light Magic Gem #2

Once you activate one of the two rune slots on this titan, it will raise its arm. Climb up and leap from this extended limb to reach the next area. There will be a corpse partially hidden by destructible debris right where you land.



CHAPTER 10: Fire Cemetery


Light Magic Gem 

At the first fork in the road, choose to go right. You’ll see a dead knight on the other side of a large gap. You may not be able to jump the distance, but that’s ok, you can drop down safely and climb up the other side.

Hint Scroll

Just in front of your after the first cutscene with the Chupacabra.

Life Magic Gem #1

Head left after the Chupacabra cutscene and you’ll find this poor sap. He’s got a life gem.

Scroll #1

Head right after the Chupacabra cutscene to find this corpse holding a scroll.

Life Magic Gem #2

Near the back of the puzzle area, in a small nook as seen above.

Scroll #2

Right across from this Neutral Element Fountain you’ll see a dead knight. He’s got a scroll for you.



CHAPTER 10: Crematory Oven

Shadow Magic Gem

When you reach the point pictured above, climb up but shimmy to the right. You’ll reach a fallen Brotherhood knight holding a Shadow Gem.



CHAPTER 11: Necromancer’s Abyss


Hint Scroll #1

There is a fallen knight here, not far from the start of the level. He’s got a hint scroll for the puzzle ahead.

Shadow Gem #1

After you solve the calendar puzzle, run around to the left side and drop down. You’ll find a corpse with a Shadow Gem.

Hint Scroll #2

Right next to the second puzzle is the hint scroll for the second puzzle. Makes sense…

Life Magic Gem

After you encounter and defeat the Reapers for the first time, run to the left and toward the camera. You’ll drop down into an area where you can see a dead knight. If you’ve been collecting all of the Life Gems so far, this will be the final one the game has to offer.

Light Magic Gem

After you defeat the first Necromancer, head into the portal on the right. In the next area, you need to use the portal on the left side to grab the hook point, then jump backward and land on the ledge with the corpse on it.

This is the final Light Magic Gem of the game.


Here, next to the bag containing a dark crystal on this floating rock.

Shadow Gem #2

Near the end of the level, you’ll end up teleporting right next to a health fountain.

Head left and down the twisting steps and you’ll find the final Shadow Gem.

    actully there is missing a scroll in chapter 6 refectory when i exedently jumped down after obtaining the hint scroll i happend to come across another knight scroll... i cant seem to find that scroll here or anywhere else so i do not know what thats all about anyone know?
  • ranchnumber51 - July 5, 2011 8:38 a.m.

    Oops, my bad... to correct my comment above, the scroll is found right after the first corpse in the guide.
  • ranchnumber51 - July 2, 2011 10:34 p.m.

    The guide is missing a scroll in Sanctuary Entrance. After obtaining the first crystal shard, go to the right and drop off a narrow walkway (instead of heading down the broken stairs). The corpse with the scroll is right after the drop, and when you continue, you'll come across the shard by the wheel and ark. The shadow gem found above the red wall is right after this section.

    This game is pure value for money, 2 discs and the ability to replay the levels to get the hiddem items and upgrades is amazing, I will be using this guide thoroughly now thanks.

    This is a great guide since while it's incredibly useful to have your health and magic upgraded, it's a total pain to find it yourself. Maybe it's the fixed camera, but I found finding stuff in this game harder than in most. Good job though, I don't think I've used any sort of guide this much since Mega Man 9.

  • 8BitArtist - October 9, 2010 1:13 a.m.

    only it isnt complete. unless im blind, the enchanted forest is missing its dagger upgrade and the labyrinth entrance is missing its fairy upgrade.
  • TheDarkslyder - October 8, 2010 5:38 p.m.

    @cyclone Agharta's dagger upgrade is listed here on the second page. All of the backtracking upgrades should be listed
  • cyclone306 - October 8, 2010 7:09 a.m.

    ok, so I'm just going to go ahead and say it, This guide isn't complete, there are weapon upgrades missing. Mostly ones you need to backtrack in order to get. There are a few but there are some missing like in Argharta.
