Darksiders 2 The Sentinel’s Gaze

Entry Stairwell
The winding stairwell that leads down into Sentinel’s Gaze is broken. Wall-run to a post where the stairs have collapsed, and then slide down. Wall-run to the left to crack open a chest, return to the post, and wall-run to the right to reach the bottom of the stairs.

Keep Grounds
You will find skeletons and skeleton warriors in the grounds surrounding the Sentinel’s Gaze vanquish them all and then run to the northeast corner of the area to find a Boatman Coin hidden inside a crate.

Go back a bit and climb the low wall near an alcove that’s blocked by Corruption crystals. Climb up to a ledge where a Shadowbomb pod grows.

Take the Relic that’s hidden behind the nearby torch, and then grab a bomb. Fall back down from the ledge and use the bomb to obliterate the alcove’s Corruption crystals so that you may access the weapon racks and chest within.


Stand near the front of the main structure. Now split up Death’s soul and climb the main structure and wall-run around its curved front wall. Keep going until you’re able to climb up to a higher ledge, where more Corruption crystals block your progress.

Switch souls and return to the Shadowbomb pod. Enter aiming mode and throw a bomb over to the soul that’s standing near the crystals. Switch souls, destroy the obstacles, and then scale the hand holds they were covering.

Keep Roof
The hand holds lead up to the keep’s roof. Shoot the Stonebite on the back of the tall statue, and then stand on the roof’s northeast corner.

Switch souls again and chuck another Shadowbomb up to the soul on the roof. Use this bomb to destroy the crystals inside the roof’s alcove, exposing a large chest. Claim your plunder, and then optionally drop down into the hole behind the chest to visit another side dungeon called Boneriven.

Start exploring the new dungeon by fighting an Undead Stalker and a group of Undead Prowlers. Kill all the Skeleton, Skeletal Warrior and Undead Stalkers which come in your way. As you carry forward in the game. you are going to unlock a Dungeon Map. You have to look for Soul Arbiter’s Scroll.

Keep unlocking areas by using your Soul Splitter and eliminate all the Scrabas which come in your way. Once you are done with your last area of the dungeon, get the Keel Talisman, a Soul Arbiter’s Scroll, and three chests.
