Darksiders II: Book of the Dead Pages, Stones, Gnomes and collectibles guide

The Maw

Boatman Coin #56

(The Maw) As you head south along the bridge that leads into the central Maw area, you’ll see a coin to your right before the bridge ends. Continue along the bridge and circle around to the right once you get the opportunity.

Soul Arbiter’s Sacred Scroll #5

(The Maw) From coin #56, head south and look for handholds leading up a wall. Use them to reach a high place with four cells. The one that isn’t initially barred holds a scroll. While you’re up here, continue climbing the structure and rotate the lantern at the top so that it points north. This will come in handy later.

Boatman Coin #57

(The Maw) Just north of the stairs leading down into Sentinel’s Gaze, you’ll find this coin behind a spire (or rib, or branch, or whatever...).

Sentinel's Gaze

Boatman Coin #58

(Sentinel’s Gaze, B1) Descend the spiral stairs and enter the dungeon. Check the northeastern corner for a coin.

Relic of Etu-Goth #5

(Sentinel’s Gaze, 1st fl) From coin #58, look for a way up in the room’s northwest corner. Once at a higher level, check behind one of the green torches.

Stone of Mystics #20

(The Maw) Ride to The Maw’s southern gate. High up in one of the windows, you’ll spot a stone.

Phriseer's Tomb

Boatman Coin #59

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 4th fl) As soon as you step off the elevator and down the stairs, turn around to your left to find a coin.

Stone of Mystics #21

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 4th fl) As you make your way across the fourth floor, you’ll eventually end up in a circular elevator room with four crystal switches. Check the high southeast wall for a stone.

Book of the Dead Page #16

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 4th fl) Check behind the statue in the easternmost room of floor 4.

Boatman Coin #60

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 1st fl) This coin is floating above the switch in the east side of the northernmost room of floor 1 (the one with the pit). Climb the handholds and leap from the highest one to claim your prize.

Boatman Coin #61

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 3rd fl) After (or before) defeating the Undead General in the southwest room of floor 3, check the southeast corner of the room for a coin.

Relic of Etu-Goth #6

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 3rd fl) In the same room as coin #61. Smash the crates in the northwest corner to reveal this relic.

Soul Arbiter’s Sacred Scroll #6

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 3rd fl) In the hallway leading north from the large room in which you fought the Undead General, check behind the hanging cage in the nook on your left.

Stone of Power #9

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 3rd fl) In the easternmost room of floor 3, you’ll find a tall statue. There’s a stone stuck to its face.

Book of the Dead Page #17

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 1st fl) After using the lever to raise the bridge in the east room of floor 1, drop down, cross it, and climb the wall at the other end (the one with the Deathgrip hook).

Soul Arbiters Scroll #7

(Phariseer’s Tomb, 1st fl) After defeating Phariseer, drop off the elevator and use Interdiction to access the southern part of floor 1. Use a nearby bomb to destroy the corruption crystals, then drop to the room below. The scroll is in the northeastern corner of this room, etched in red on the wall.

Boatman Coin #62

(The Maw, southern gate) With Interdiction, you can lower the bars and proceed here. Take the southern route and climb the first wall you can. Turn around and leap off the ledge to claim this coin.

    Matt Hughes - THANK YOU for putting this guide together. I have been looking for exactly THIS. A non-video guide, that does not spoil but helps me to make sure I don't miss finding the enormous amount of collectibles in the game as I progress. Nice and efficient. Thank you for the quality work and having the foresight to put this together in chronological order. It's a massive amount of information. Extremely helpful!

    The walkthrough's been great so far, except it should be noted that the elevator room for Mystic Stone 13 isn't a mandatory room. If anyone updates this, that should be added in..
  • ecto-emeritus - June 21, 2013 6:48 a.m.

    Anyone know where stone of the mystics 8 actually is? the picture an the description dont really help...heck you cant even see it in the picture
  • dee55 - November 21, 2013 1:50 a.m.

    as you walk into where the statue is in the picture go up the climb wall to right as you go up the stone is to the right in the direction that you came in
  • Dow - September 26, 2012 2:43 p.m.

    Made an account just to say thanks. Your guide actually has pictures and isn't a 9 hour video of non-sense; thus making this guide, the best guide.
  • Matt Hughes - October 6, 2012 5:48 p.m.

    Glad it helped you! Thanks for the kind words.
  • tom-manning - September 4, 2012 3:11 p.m.

    The Dead Plains map misses out Page 22 from what I can see. May just be hidden away somewhere.
  • tom-manning - September 4, 2012 4:16 p.m.

    Oh nevermind, it's on the Forglands map
  • smallfry22 - September 2, 2012 10:54 p.m.

    In the Wandering Stones quest does anyone know where Oran's right leg is?
  • itchay-gulay - August 29, 2012 7:34 a.m.

    I can't get the stone of resistance # 3. there is a fence blocking my way.
  • Shinnok789 - August 30, 2012 12:14 p.m.

    itchay-gulay to get the stone of resistance #3, you must first go across the bridge, towards The Maw as you look on the world map. After you've crossed the bridge, to the left will be the entrance to Sentinel's Gaze, and to the right are some ruins. On top of those ruins there is a statue with a beam of light that you will have to rotate. That will open the grates near the statue you found in The Breach. The rest of the mistery i leave to you :)
  • itchay-gulay - August 31, 2012 7:23 a.m.

    thanks. the guide didn't mention it and the numbering threw me off, imagine my chills when I saw that my game and the guide didn't jive with each other at that time.
  • Shinnok789 - August 26, 2012 9:02 a.m.

    Also the Book of the dead page #40 is not on the map.
  • Shinnok789 - August 26, 2012 9:21 a.m.

    And the Relic #15(etu-goth) appears 2 times on the map, once where it should be and then again in the middle of the map hanging in the air :) (sorry for posting so much :) )
  • Shinnok789 - August 26, 2012 6:46 a.m.

    I found a relic in the Ivory Citadel, and i dont't see it on the map. After you get the 3 waters flowing, the pool of corruption clears and you can finaly get to the central door and open it. When you go though it you arrive in a chamber with 2 big "angel on one knee leaning on a sword" statues to the left and right and 2 Voidwalker surfaces on the wall in front of you. The relic is behind the left statue, near a dead angel on the floor.
  • Matt Hughes - August 26, 2012 6:27 p.m.

    Thanks for pointing out these errors, Shinnok. We'll have them fixed ASAP. The relic you speak of in the Ivory Tower is in the walkthrough, but it will be added to the map. The other mistakes will also be fixed.
  • Matt Hughes - August 26, 2012 6:33 p.m.

    Scratch that, the image in the walkthrough is incorrect as well! We'll get it sorted :) Thanks again.
  • GR_SophiaTong - August 26, 2012 7:06 p.m.

  • jeffsore - August 24, 2012 9:30 a.m.

    Am I missing something for Stone of Resistance #3, or should it be later in the guide? I'm up on the roof of the Breach, but there are bars blocking me from the east side where this stone is at.
