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

City of the Dead

Book of the Dead Page #23

(City of the Dead, 1st fl) This page is clearly visible in the second room’s (entering from the south) southeast corner.

Relic of Renagoth #5

(City of the Dead, 1st fl) In the third room (the one with the pit), walk around to the northeast corner and down the stairs. The relic is on a steam grate.

Soul Arbiter’s Scroll #13

(City of the Dead, 1st fl) Pass through the skeleton door to arrive at a rotating bridge. Use the Soul Splitter on the bridge, then release the Deathgrip hook and handholds to climb over to the south edge of the room. Check the southwest corner for some writing on the wall.

Book of the Dead Page #24

(City of the Dead, 2nd fl) Look for another handhold to the south, and from it, wall jump back and forth until you reach the next level up. Once there, check the balcony to the right of the lever for a page.

Boatman Coin #70

(City of the Dead, 1st fl) Rotate the bridge so that it runs north/south. Switch souls and check the nook in the northeast corner of the room for a coin.

Book of the Dead Page #25

(City of the Dead, 1st fl) If you solved the rotating bridge puzzle, you should now be within Deathgrip range of a lantern from the room with the pit. Take the lantern all the way over to the statue in the western section. Put the lantern in place and rotate the statue so that it points south, which will open a door to a page.

Relic of Etu-Goth #10

(City of the Dead, 2nd fl) After climbing up to floor 2, use the Soul Splitter and have one soul stand on the red wall lever and the other run over to the level sticking out of the ground. Not far from that lever, you’ll find a relic in the corner.

Stone of Power #14

(City of the Dead, 2nd fl) After rotating the crooked bridge, use one soul on the red wall lever and send the other soul south. On the wall next to the chest, you’ll find a stone.

Boatman Coin #71

(City of the Dead, 2nd fl) As you make your way back to the bridge from the power stone, you’ll notice growth on the wall in front of you climb it until you see the a floating coin. Leap from the growth to claim your prize.

Stone of Resistance #5

(City of the Dead, 3rd fl) As soon as you step into the open-air section of floor 3, look to your right for a leaning tower. The stone is stuck above the highest window.

Boatman Coin #72

(City of the Dead, 4th fl) When you reach the first pressure plate of floor 4, use the Soul Splitter but do not put your stone form on the plate. Put your first soul form on the plate and move the second soul form onto the northern wall’s rotating handhold. Leave him there, then move the first soul off the plate. The second soul will rotate around to a hidden area. Smash the crates to find a coin.

GnoMAD Gnome #1

(City of the Dead, 4th fl) This is in the same area as coin #72. Check near the treasure chest.

Boatman Coin #73

(City of the Dead, 5th fl) After nabbing the skeleton key, turn around and look up. There’s a coin floating near one of the Deathgrip hooks. Use your Deathgrip to grab it.

Book of the Dead Page #26

(City of the Dead, 4th fl) Just after passing through the skeleton door, smash to crates to your left to reveal a page.

Soul Arbiter’s Scroll #14

(City of the Dead, 4th fl) Once you gain access to room containing the movable floating platform, check the nearby wall for some writing.

    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.

  • 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.
