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


After completing The Drenchfort and returning to Tri-Stone, speak to the Makers to receive the Maker’s Key. Speak to Alya once more to pick up a side quest (The Hammer’s Forge) involving the exploration of The Shattered Forge. Now that we have reason to, let’s quickly clear this dungeon and nab the two collectibles found there. You can also find a material for the “Shaman’s Craft” side quest by defeating an enemy in this dungeon.

Boatman Coin #26

(The Shattered Forge, B1) As soon as you enter the forge, you’ll notice a chest on a raised platform surrounded by water. Dive under the water to find a coin floating nearby.

Book of the Dead Page #7

(The Shattered Forge, 2nd fl) In one of the easternmost rooms of this dungeon, you’ll view a short cutscene and be attacked by several enemies. In the northwest corner of this room are some vases. Break them to reveal a page.


The Nook

Boatman Coin #27

(The Nook, 1st fl) The Nook is the dungeon at the northeast of Baneswood that, if you’ve been following this walkthrough, you stepped foot in to grab a coin earlier. Coin #27 is inside a breakable vase in the large, open room pictured above.

Stone of Mystics #13

(The Nook, 1st fl) You’ll eventually find yourself in an elevator room. Look high on the northern wall of the first floor to see this stone. It’s just above where the first elevator stops.

Boatman Coin #28

(The Nook, 1st fl) When you reach the room where the staircase descends into the water, dive in and follow the steps down. They’ll lead you to a small underwater room that contains a coin.

The Lost Temple

Boatman Coin #29

(The Lost Temple, 1st fl) After reviving the first custodian in this temple and using it to open a door, you’ll enter a much larger, open area. Look to your immediate left and smash the crate to reveal a coin.

Boatman Coin #30

(The Lost Temple, 1st fl) In the room with the second custodian, go underwater and search the west side of the pool for a coin.

Stone of Mystics #14

(The Lost Temple, 1st fl) After reanimating the second custodian and riding it back to the room with the skeleton lock, smash through the corruption crystals to the south and plant the custodian into the orb slot. You’ll notice that if you look down at gap, there’s a stone on the far wall.

Boatman Coin #31

(The Lost Temple, 1st fl) You’ll eventually come upon a circular room and be attacked by a swarm of enemies. After clearing this room, proceed until you reach a hallway where you have to continually wall jump to reach the other end. Once back on solid ground, turn right to find a coin.

Boatman Coin #32

(The Lost Temple, 1st fl) When you reach the outdoor area, look for a large tree. Behind its massive trunk, on the east side of this area, you’ll find a coin.

Book of the Dead Page #8

(The Lost Temple, 1st fl) You’ll encounter a custodian at the bottom of an elevator. Reanimate the custodian and leave it on the elevator. Climb the nearby wall up to the next level and look for another custodian. Bring this one back and plant it in the orb slot near the elevator. The first custodian will rise, and you’ll now have two at your disposal. Park one in the slot north of the elevator, then take the other through the newly opened passage. Configure the two as seen in the screenshot. Instead of crossing over the chain and continuing with the dungeon, walk along it to reach the page, which is now accessible.

Stone of Power #3

(The Lost Temple, 2nd fl) After defeating the two Savage Stalkers on the balcony, proceed north. In the next room, climb the wall up to the second level and look up at the corner in the screenshot to find a stone of power.

Book of the Dead Page #9

(The Lost Temple, 2nd fl) This is near the stone of power, in the small room off to the east side of the second floor.

Boatman Coin #33

(The Lost Temple, 1st fl) Inside a breakable crate on the south side of the room where you fight the two Tainted Construct Champions.

    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.
