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

Boatman Coin #34

(Tri-Stone) Speak to the Warden, who is now hanging out at the southernmost point of Tri-Stone, and he’ll create a bridge leading further south. Cross it, and look behind the giant statue at the map’s southwestern corner.

The Foundry

Stone of Resistance #1

(The Foundry, 1st fl) Upon entering The Foundry, you’ll notice hanging cauldrons moving to the right. The stone is on one of these cauldrons, so wait for it to cycle into view.

Boatman Coin #35

(The Foundry, B1) This coin is underwater (B1), not far from the submerged custodian in the northeastern part of the dungeon.

Book of the Dead Page #10

(The Foundry, 2nd fl) Once you’ve acquired the Deathgrip, use it on the first high hook you see. Once you land, turn around and look down for another hook. Leap towards it and use the Deathgrip to grab hold (alternatively, you can just drop from the ledge before using the first hook). This leads you to the tenth page.

Boatman Coin #36

(The Foundry, 1st fl) This one is hard to miss. You’ll find it in a pipe soon after Karn restores the Guardian’s first heart stone.

Boatman Coin #37

(The Foundry, 1st fl) In the room with the two prowlers and the custodian, break the vase in the northeastern corner to reveal a coin.

Boatman Coin #38

(The Foundry, 1st fl) In the room where you find the second heart stone, jump in the water on the west side. The coin is underwater near the grate.

Boatman Coin #39

(The Foundry, B1) After climbing the growth and witnessing the short cutscene with the prowlers, you’ll be on a high ledge. Jump into the eastern waters. Deep underwater, below a pipe, you’ll find this coin.


As you might expect, the Deathgrip allows you to reach previously inaccessible areas. Some of these areas not only contain collectibles, but also side quest-related bosses. Here’s what we suggest you do before progressing the main storyline:

Boatman Coin #40

(The Nook, B1) Return to level B1. You’ll notice a large flaming bird (this is Bheithir) flying around an area that was previously inaccessible. Use the Deathgrip to nab the coin pictured above.

Book of the Dead Page #11

(The Nook, 2nd fl) Go to the open-air room at the center of the first floor and look for this obvious Deathgrip hook. It will take you to floor 2, where you’ll find a page.

Boatman Coin #41

(The Fjord) Go around to the front end of the largest ruined structure in the Fjord. There’s a spot where you can use the Deathgrip to get up to a higher level. From here, you can leap out and grab the coin that’s floating in midair on the west side of the temple.

Stone of Mystics #15

(The Weeping Crag, outside) This is on the east side of the archway if you’re coming at the drawbridge from the east.

Boatman Coin #42

(The Weeping Crag, outside) The Deathgrip allows you to now access this area, but this coin is underwater below the drawbridge.

Book of the Dead Page #12

(The Weeping Crag, B1) Soon after unlocking the skeleton door, you’ll be find yourself in a long, narrow passage that requires you to do continuous wall jumps. The page lies at the end, as pictured above.

Stone of Power #4

(The Weeping Crag, B3) From where you found page #12, dive into the water and follow the staircase down. This path leads to Gorewood, a side quest-related boss. Once inside his lair, check high on the eastern cliff face for a stone. There are more collectibles in this dungeon but they require item(s) you won’t have until much later in the game.

Boatman Coin #43

(The Charred Pass) Fast travel to the entrance to The Scar. Once you arrive, it’s quite clear how you need to use the Deathgrip to reachness this floating coin.

Stone of Power #5

(The Charred Pass) Stand at the entrance to The Scar and turn around. Above the column that holds a Deathgrip hook, you can see a stone of power in the busted pipe.

Book of the Dead Page #13

(The Scar, 1st fl) Immediately after obtaining the Skeleton Key, do not leap off the ledge to grab the coin. Instead, turn around and look for some handholds on the left wall. Follow this route to find a page.

Boatman Coin #44

(The Scar, 1st fl) Return to the chest inside which you found the Skeleton Key. Leap off the ledge to grab the 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.
