— Ingame description

Lost Relics is a side quest featured in Darksiders II. It is given by the merchant Ostegoth when you encounter him at the Tree of Death. This quest will task Death with obtaining the Relics of Ostegoth's long extinct race. They are found thoughout the realms and are acquired by walking through them or using Death Grip on them. Often they are hidden in parts of the maps that are easily missed for those that only focus on the main quests.

There are three varieties of Relics:

  • 15 Relics of Etu-Goth (A common relic of the house of Etu-Goth. A noble family with strong ties to magic.)
  • 10 Relics of Renagoth (A rare relic of the Renagoth house. Known for their fearsome combat abilities and courage under pressure.)
  • 5 Relics of Khagoth (An extremely rare Relic, each held by one of the high Warlords of the Khagoth dynasty.)

  • Gilded Arena - Once you are in the central room, the actual arena, run along the area to the right. Locate the first handhold and climb up. Then go right to the next, climb, and then go left, and climb yet another. This will put you on the third floor of the balcony. This is where you will find the relic.(Renagoth)
  • Gilded Arena - After speaking to the Lord of Bones return to the Gilded Arena and descend the main stairwell all the way to the bottom. Go through the basement door and find yourself on a cliff face. Hug the edge of the cliff and you will find the relic behind some plants/thorns.(Renagoth)
  • Ethernal Throne - Behind the Lord of Bones throne.(Etu-Goth)

Continue even further through the corridor by running along the wall and Death Gripping the hoop, then find the lever that activates another wall hoop.

Then carefully drop down through the hole by the chest to locate this cleverly hidden relic.(Etu-Goth)
