In Darksiders II, Gilded Arena is one of the largest dungeons we have to explore in the second major zone of the game, The Kingdom of the Dead.
Inside it, we can find multiple Darksiders II collectibles, including Mystics Stonebites, Power Stonebites and Relics.
When we enter we remember that the Stonebites must he brought back to Blackroot for the Sticks and Stones side-quest, while the Relics can be traded for various rewards, if we talk to Ostegoth (Darksiders II Lost Relics side-quest).
The following Darksiders II game guide refers exclusively to the collectibles that can be found in Gilded Arena, and offers maps revealing their locations, as well as tips and tricks on how to get them, or how to solve the puzzles we may encounter.
To get every Gilded Arena collectable, using the maps below, we have to check their symbols using the legend in the upper right corner, and the floors on which these collectibles can be located.
Book of the Dead Page Location
The page can be acquired in the area where we search for the second Animus Stone (Floor 2). It is located in the far western circular room.
When we reach the second statue with the light beam, we turn it around to activate a bridge. We cross the bridge to collect a Darksiders Book of the Dead Page.
First Stone of Mystics Location
As we enter the Gilded Arena from The Eternal Throne (Second Floor), at the top of the stairs we have two statues with swords.
The sword of the one to the right has a Stone of Mystics attached to it.
Second Stone of Mystics Location
When we arrive in the main arena, we need to search for three Animus Stones for the main quest.
To get the first one we need to take the path to the right, and after we go down at Basement 2 level via a broken spiral staircase the path will be blocked until we fight a bunch of enemies.
After we defeat them, we look at the ceiling to get the second Darksiders 2 Stone of Mystics in Gilded Arena.
Third Stone of Mystics Location
At the end of Basement 2 level, where we need to collect the first Animus Stone, we look to the left at a hanging cage to find the third Darksiders II Mystics Stonebite.
Stone of Power Location
After we exit the door with the first Animus Stone (B2 floor), we need to make a left turn, down to a narrow corridor. We enter the door and as soon as we get inside we look for a mall space to the left.
Again, we look at the ceiling to see a Darksiders II Power Stonebite.
Relic of Etu-Goth Location
When we are in the area where we search for the second Animus Stone, we cross the bridge that we activated using the light beam, and after we enter the door at the end we arrive at the top of a circular staircase.
The staircase is broken so we need to run on the wall to get on the next section. Instead of doing this, we drop down the first hole in the stairs and, if done correctly, we should get right next to a Darksiders II Relic of Etu-Goth.
Relic of Renagoth Location
When we enter the main area of the Gilded Arena (where the fighting arena is) we take the path to our right and as we walk on the path we look high above us to see a Deathgrip point (if we equip the Deathgrip, the point will glow from a distance to spot it easier).
We climb the wall in front of us, we take a quick right, we climb up again, we take a left, and then we climb the final wall near the Deathgrip point.
We use it in order to cross to the other side, and after a short run on the wall we can collect another Relic of Renagoth in Darksiders 2.
