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

The Eternal Throne

Boatman Coin #52

(Eternal Throne) Break the crates near the Serpent Tome in the basement to reveal a coin.

Stone of Resistance #2

(Eternal Throne) This is just to the right of the Serpent Tome. It may be hidden from view by a red cloth.

Gilded Arena

Book of the Dead Page #14

(Gilded Arena/Eternal Throne/Leviathan’s Gorge) Technically, this page is outside the Gilded Arena dungeon on the pier. Before entering the narrow passage containing the door to the Gilded Arena, check the left side among some skulls to find a page.

Stone of Mystics #17

(Gilded Arena, 2nd fl) As soon as you officially enter the dungeon, simply look to your right.

Relic of Renagoth #1

(Gilded Arena, 3rd fl) After the first cutscene in the main arena, head right and climb up to the second-level balcony. Turn right, then climb to the next level. Follow this 3rd floor balcony to north until you see a Deathgrip hook. Use it to reach a relic.

Stone of Mystics #18

(Gilded Arena, B2) You’ll be ambushed by numerous skeletons in a rectangular room on level B2. Defeat them, then look up at the ceiling.

Boatman Coin #53

(Gilded Arena, B2) The second time you encounter a green lantern will be on level B2. The coin is just to the right of the beam when you enter the room.

Stone of Mystics #19

(Gilded Arena, B2) Continue heading north through level B2. Just before you reach the first Animus Stone (at the dead end), look for a Stone of Mystics attached to a hanging cage to your left.

Stone of Power #8

(Gilded Arena, B2) After claiming the first Animus Stone, you’ll need to head east through a narrow corridor on the same floor. Look for a nook on your left. The stone is hard to miss.

Soul Arbiter’s Scroll #3

(Gilded Arena, B2) This is in the same nook as the Stone of Power mentioned above. Once again, this ‘scroll’ takes the form of red text on the wall.

Boatman Coin #54

(Gilded Arena, 2nd fl) This is clearly visible in the northernmost hallway of the 2nd floor. You’ll need to use a nearby bomb to destroy the corruption crystals and clear a path.

Book of the Dead Page #15

(Gilded Arena, 2nd fl) This page is in the westernmost room of the 2nd floor. Rotate the lantern in the adjacent room until its light points west, at which point a bridge will rise.

Soul Arbiter’s Scroll #4

(Gilded Arena, 2nd fl) Just before entering the pair of circular rooms at the southwest end of the 2nd floor, turn to your right and check behind a pillar for this scroll.

Relic of Etu-Goth #3

(Gilded Arena, B2) Once you finally gain access to the western spiral staircase of the 2nd floor, you’ll notice that some steps are missing. Simply drop through the first gap and you’ll land right next to this relic.

Boatman Coin #55

(Gilded Arena, B3) After grabbing the second Animus stone, head for the rectangular room in the northeast. Before using the Deathgrip to climb the wall in front of you, head to the right side of this room and look for a spot to climb up normally. Wallrun to the opposite ledge, then break the crates there to reveal a coin.

Relic of Etu-Goth #4

(Eternal Throne) After finally speaking to the Dead King, check behind his throne for a relic.

Relic of Renagoth #2

(Gilded Arena, outside) From the Eternal Throne, head into the Gilded Arena. Descend the spiral staircase all the way to the bottom and you’ll come upon a huge door that leads back out onto the overworld map. Check the southwest corner of this section.

    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.
