This thread lists all the locations of the artifacts, lifestone shards, wrath shards, wrath cores and abyssal armour pieces. In total there are 81 collectibles, none of which are missable. Shortly after acquiring the voidwalker power in the Black Throne, one of the last areas of the game, you can reach a chest containing the legendary enhancement, Fury's Embrace, which reveals locations of chests and other collectibles on your map. Some collectibles, even in the early levels, can't be obtained until much later in the game as a certain item or ability is required to reach them. All of these items and abilities are acquired through general story progression.

 

Maps are provided for each area in the game with a number placed where the item can be found. Each number is a specific colour depending on what type the collectible is; Legend - Artifact: Soldier l Artifact: Champion l Artifact: Overlord l Wrath l Lifestone l Abyssal Armour

 

All text descriptions under the map are numbered so you can easily pinpoint the location of any that you are missing. An all-in-one collectible video guide can be viewed [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RTuV2mqLfc]here[/ame]. Clicking on the http://i.imgur.com/WKShT0D.png for any collectible will take you to the moment it appears in the appropriate video.

 

Various enemy types are referred to in the guide solely by name to prevent repeating menial descriptions of them throughout the guide. Since you won't know these names via general gameplay, here's a quick rundown of those mentioned:

  • Goremaw - These hang from the ceiling and will temporarily devour you if you walk directly beneath them. Cannot be killed, only stunned.
  • Gholen - Large rock-based demons with flaming hands.
  • Broodling - The small spiders found at the Iron Canopy. Usually come in groups of 3+
  • Loom Warden - The four armoured spiders that guard the entrance to Silitha's lair. Invincible until their shell has been removed.
  • Rot Mauler - A hulking reptilian-like creature. Emits and sprays a poisonous fluid.
  • Skeleton Warrior - A sword-wielding skeleton, stronger than the average skeleton. Emits a green glow.

Lifestones - In order to max out your health, you need to collect an additional 9 lifestones. There are 16 lifestone shards in the game. Every four that you collect will give you a lifestone. An additional complete lifestone is awarded each time you defeat one of the first five bosses. Obtaining all lifestones will unlock the Full Power trophy. A video guide showing the locations of all lifestone shards can be found [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPohTcG6CC4]here[/ame].

 

Wrath - In order to max out your wrath, you need to collect an additional 8 wrath cores. There are 20 wrath shards in the game. Every four shards that you collect will give you a wrath core. An additional three wrath cores can be obtained by buying it off Vulgrim, trading in the overlord artifact and opening a chest at Twilight Cathedral. Obtaining all wrath cores will unlock the Wrath of War trophy. A video guide showing the locations of all wrath shards and cores can be found [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnxUV2f6yiY]here[/ame].

 

Artifacts - There are 27 artifacts in the game; 20 soldier, 6 champion and 1 overlord. You can check how many of each type you have obtained by hitting :start: and navigating to the final tab. Trading all artifacts with Vulgrim is required in order to obtain two lifestone shards and one wrath core. Collecting all artifacts will unlock the World Raider trophy. A video guide showing the locations of all artifacts can be found [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FawrJbEfFg4]here[/ame].

 

Abyssal Armour Pieces - There are 10 pieces of the abyssal armour. Apart from the one awarded after clearing the curse in the Drowned Pass, they are all found in the environment. A cool thing about the armour is that you can choose to carry it over into a fresh new game regardless of the difficulty. Collecting the full set of armour will unlock the Legendary Form trophy. A video guide showing the locations of all armour pieces can be found [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GN7Vuf2UKhw]here[/ame].

Legend - Artifact: Soldier l Artifact: Champion l Artifact: Overlord l Wrath l Lifestone l Abyssal Armour

 

1. Artifact: Soldier

Requirements: None

In the western area of the map is a set of steps. Heading down these steps will eventually take you to a small pond. This artifact is found at the bottom of the water.

 

2. Lifestone Shard

Requirements: None

After entering the main section of the library, drop down to the patch of water. Swim through the tunnel and to the other side to find a chest which contains this shard.

 

3. Artifact: Soldier

Requirements: Shadowflight

Once you drop down into the main section of the library, climb the broken shelves opposite. This artifact is found on the other side of the broken bridge. From the edge of the current side, glide across and you should just about make it.

 

4. Wrath Shard

Requirements: Abyssal Chain

Just above the broken bridge, you'll see a grapple point on a pole. Use it to swing over the gap, walk round the corner and open the chest containing this shard.

Legend - Artifact: Soldier l Artifact: Champion l Artifact: Overlord l Wrath l Lifestone l Abyssal Armour

 

1. Abyssal Armour Piece

Requirements: None

Near the beginning of the area is a bomb attached to some growth that is blocking the way up. Lob a car or use your crossblade, if you have it, to destroy the growth which will also knock a pillar down. Climb up the pillar and open the chest to receive your first piece of the abyssal armour.

 

2. Wrath Shard

Requirements: None

From Vulgrim's position, turn around to find some growth. Climb the growth and open the chest on the ledge for the shard.

 

3. Abyssal Armour Piece

Requirements: Shadowflight

From Vulgrim's position, peer over the edge and you will see a narrow path spiralling around where you freed Samael. In order to land on the path, you will first need to perform a single jump and then start gliding when you are roughly half way across. The chest at the top of this path contains the armour piece.

 

4. Artifact: Soldier

Requirements: Chronomancer

On your way to The Dry Road you'll need to get past a fast closing gate. Activate the chronomancer point to slow down time, then the gate lever and quickly run underneath the gate. Follow the path and steps round until you reach a climbable wall. Climb as far as you can and then jump away from the wall to land in a pipe. Turn around and the artifact will be right in front of you.

 

5. Artifact: Champion

Requirements: Abyssal Chain & Shadowflight

Before using the fan, it would be a good idea to activate the panel in the hallway before the fan, so that you can easily knock out another collectible after this artifact without backtracking too much. Onto the actual artifact.

 

While riding the rotating fan, look for a gap in the lower walls. Just after the blade you're standing on passes this gap, jump or glide through it and press :r2: when the prompt pops up to grapple up to the ledge. Use the glide point to reach the much higher ledge and you'll see this artifact floating in the air.

 

6. Wrath Shard

Requirements: Abyssal Chain, Shadowflight & Voidwalker

In the hallway before the room with the fan is a ledge which is too high for you to jump up. It's also where this shard is. On the ceiling is a voidwalker panel, activate it now and head into the fan room. While riding the rotating fan, look for a gap in the lower walls. Just after the blade you're standing on passes this gap, jump or glide through it and press :r2: when the prompt pops up to grapple up to the ledge. Walk forward slightly and look up to see another panel. Activate it and use the glide point to fly through it and onto the previous inaccessible ledge. Turn around and you'll see the chest which holds this shard.

If only the guide had a referee for this, would be so much better. This is much more elaborated that the one in the guide!

Edit: In all legends you wrote "Solider" instead of "Soldier". I just noticed this on my 4th visit to this guide, somehow...

I had to be lazy and copy+paste it *sigh*

 

Thanks for the heads-up!

 

I would do the same, typing and coloring them all everytime would be a pain!

 

I got the plat already, thanks for this. I just needed the cathedral soldier token (in the subway stairs to the left) and abyssal armor on the third floor of the big wasteland. They didn't appeared on my map (because I didn't looked all the floors properly).

Thanks for the guide Shadow! I spent forever looking for the last life shard and wrath shard but I found it by using your video. Was a pain to go through each one individually but at least I got them all in the end.

 

And as a tip to anyone missing 1 wrath shard, I can almost guarantee it will be this one:

 

Going from the Dry Roads to The Ashlands, you will get to a room with a zipline/wire going across with 3 goremaws hanging above it. You're supposed to go the left, but if you go to the right and climb the demonic growth here, there's a chest up on the ledge. But there's another chest above it that has a wrath shard, and it doesn't show up on the map. If you look up from this location, you'll see an orange grappling hook, use the abyssal chain to get up and the chest is right there on this new ledge.

I have a problem as well for whole game.The game (ps3) is glitching on me,i fell into the abyss couple times after i open a door.I can find previously collected artifacts/shards as well but they don't do anything.It is a great game but i am having some issues.It can be because of freezes (i had couple,one of them just after an autosave) or previous save loads (aerial predator,who's counting etc).Frankly i am close to finish.Good luck all of you and thanks for the guide
