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

The Spine

Soul Arbiter’s Scroll #8

(The Spine, southern gate) Just before you exit the Maw’s southern gate to enter The Spine, you should notice this scroll right in front of you.

Stone of Power #10

(The Spine) Upon entering The Spine from the Maw, turn around and look at the left side of the gate. You can climb up to the top of the gate, stand near the chest you find, and face south.

Relic of Etu-Goth #7

(The Spine) If you ride up to the entrance of the Soul Arbiter’s maze and then turn around, you may notice this relic on the edge of the cliff to your left.

Book of the Dead Page #18

(The Spine) Check the eastern edge where the bridges intersect.

Boatman Coin #63

(The Spine) This one is behind the giant rock formation in the southwestern section of The Spine.

Relic of Renagoth #3

(The Spine) Check the edge of the cliff just south of where you can climb up The Spine’s southeastern tower.

Stone of Power #11

(The Spine) There’s a tower in the southeastern section of The Spine. You can start climbing it from the south side. Work your way inside the tower and find the ledge with a chest on it. From here, you have a clear shot at a stone.

Boatman Coin #64

(The Spine) From where you saw the eleventh Stone of Power, descend the inside of the tower until you reach the exit door. Use the Deathgrip to grab the mid-air coin, which is just out of jumping range.

Judicator’s Tomb

Stone of Power #12

(Judicator’s Tomb, 1st fl) Upon entering the third room of the first floor, look up at the dangling cage.

Soul Arbiter’s Scroll #9

(Judicator’s Tomb, 1st fl) Once you get across to the south side of the room, check behind the western pillar for a scroll.

Relic of Khagoth #2

(Judicator’s Tomb, 2nd fl) In the northernmost room of floor 2, you’ll notice some water. Dive in and check under the stairs.

Boatman Coin #65

(Judicator’s Tomb, 1st fl) After defeating the Tormenter, break the crates in the northeast corner of the room.

Soul Arbiter’s Scroll #10

(Judicator’s Tomb, 2nd fl) After defeating the Tormenter, check the southeast cell for some writing on the wall.

Book of the Dead Page #19

(Judicator’s Tomb, 1st fl) This page is in the northeasternmost corner of the first floor. It’s easy to miss, only because you don’t think to turn left.

Relic of Etu-Goth #8

(Judicator’s Tomb, 2nd fl) Just after turning the corner south of page #19, look for some handholds on the wall to your right. These lead up to a chest. If you drop to the ledge below the chest, you’ll find a relic.

Boatman Coin #66

(Judicator’s Tomb, 1st fl) In the easternmost room (behind the skeleton door) you’ll notice some water. Dive under it and grab this coin.

Book of the Dead Page #20

(Judicator’s Tomb, 2nd fl) In the room where you found coin #66, climb the central structure. You’ll notice a Deathgrip hook on the north wall. Use it to reach the handhold above, then jump from the handhold to the right. You should land right on top of this page.

Boatman Coin #67

(Judicator’s Tomb, 3rd fl) When chasing after the third soul, your elevator will get stuck on some corruption crystals. After clearing the crystals, you’ll have access to floor 3. Jump into the water to find a coin.

Book of the Dead Page #21

(Judicator’s Tomb, 4th fl) Before proceeding into the room containing the final soul, loop around and grab this page.

Stone of Mystics #22

(Judicator’s Tomb, 4th fl) Enter the room with the final soul, turn around, and look up and to your left.

    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.
