  • Tip: You gain more health by collecting Life Gems, more light magic by collecting Light Gems and more dark magic by collecting Shadow Gems.

    Tip: You find the Life Gems on the bodies of dead knights, the same goes for Light and Shadow Gems. However, one time you will find a gem after killing a particular spider instead. To pick them up, use the RT button.

    Life Gem #3: Chapter I Level 3: This Life Gem will be on a dead knight on an island just shortly after you take the left path when you come across the bog water. Once you have grabbed it, do not continue on the left path, instead head back and proceed on the right path to collect more Life Gems.

    Life Gem #4: Chapter I Level 3: This Life Gem can be found when you take the right path at the bog water. It will be on the body of a dead knight inside of a cave you come across after dropping down a small cliff. You will be attacked by Goblin’s when you enter the cave as well.

    Life Gem #7: Chapter I Level 5: This Life Gem can be found right at the beginning of the level. You cannot miss it on the body of the dead knight on the lake’s deck and below a statue. Make sure to grab this before you head onto the frozen lake or else the boss fight with the Ice Titan will begin.

    Chapter II: Life Gems

    Life Gem #8: Chapter II Level 5: You can find this gem after you come across the Troll in this level which you use to break down a door.

There will also be a Health Font right next to the dead body as well.

    Chapter II: Light Gems

    Light Gem #1: Chapter II Level 1: This light gem is located on the path to the right when you reach the ancient ruins. Instead of jumping over the gap, you are going to drop down into the river. It is on a body of a dead knight in the river at the end.

    Light Gem #2: Chapter II Level 2: This gem is located right before you exit the 2nd level through the tunnel that gets unblocked when you get the Spiked Chain. Instead of heading through the tunnel, turn around and head back to the totem you saw earlier that was glowing. You could not do anything with this totem earlier but now you can since you have the Spiked Chain. Once you remove the totem, this will reveal a tunnel that leads to the body of a dead knight on a ledge.

    Light Gem #3: Chapter II Level 3: When you are inside the Lycanthrope Labyrinth you will come across a dead knight after a scaffold. Instead of crossing the wooden planks to the dead knight, head down the steps to the right of them to find a hidden small room. It will be in here on the dead body of a knight.

    Light Gem #4: Chapter II Level 4: The gem will be dropped after you have killed the first Giant Spider.

    Light Gem #5: Chapter II Level 4: After you have killed the Troll, you will come across two tunnels with a Health Font between them. Go through the right tunnel first and you will then come across a waterfall on the left side. Finally, go inside the waterfall to find a secret area. It will be on the dead body of a knight here.

    Light Gem #6: Chapter II Level 6: You will find this gem near the bottom of the well at the beginning of the level that you are climb down in. Instead of climbing all the way down the last grip point just shortly just after when you land on the middle platform. You are going to swing backwards and jump onto a hold point above the broken arch. Once you are here, there will be 2 new grip points to jump towards. At the last grip point you are going to wall run towards the left and onto the ledge to find it on the dead body of a knight.

    Light Gem #7: Chapter II Level 7: You will find this gem right after you have battled a group of Lycanthropes and where you find the first Crystal Shard. It will be on a dead body of a knight towards the camera on the top level area which you get to after using the Grip Point.

    Chapter II: Shadow Gems

    Shadow Gem #1: Chapter II Level 5: You will find this after you come across a warg for the first time and use it to get across the first broken bridge. You will need to dismount or kill the Warg so you can go and grab the gem. It will be in a small area down the steps from across where the statue is that you cannot move without acquiring the Seraph Shoulders later into the game.

    Shadow Gem #2: Chapter II Level 5: You will find this gem right before the end of the level; make sure not to jump onto the wall of the well at the end with the warg. Once you cross the first broken bridge with the warg, you can kill it at any time to grab this gem which is located just after the first broken bridge. It is on another dead knight by a few trees.

    Shadow Gem #3: Chapter II Level 6: You will find this gem just after finding the first key off the dead knight. Instead of turning around after finding it off him, continue forward towards the left where there will be a cavern. Inside the cavern lying on the ground is another dead knight and holding the gem.

    Shadow Gem #4: Chapter II Level 6: You will find this gem right before the end of the level and soon after you have completed the bridge. You are going to use the first Grip Point to swing backwards onto a platform where a dead body is of a knight. Then just press the use button (RT) to grab it from him.

    Shadow Gem #5: Chapter II Level 7: You will find this gem on a dead body of a knight in a destroyed room above the gap. This gap is the same gap you cross in order to get the 2nd Crystal Shard as well as where a locked gate is that holds a Dagger Upgrade. You cannot open this gate until you have the Stake upgrade.

    Shadow Gem #6: Chapter II Level 8: You will find this gem at the far left corner as you start this level and from where the Stone Idol Titan is. It is on a dead body of a knight lying against a rock.

You can kill the Warg right after you climb the vines as you will still be able to make the next jump over the gap on your own. It will then be on the balcony to your right on a dead body of a knight.

    Shadow Gem #9: Chapter III Level 1: You will find this gem in a small room as you climb down the final tower in order to get back to the main area of the temple. After your first Grip Point as you descend, stop at the ledge and move towards the left to climb inside this room and grab it off the dead knight.

      this is a great guide, but i think there’s been a posting error. The video showing the Chapter XI light gems is in the Chapter X section and there is no Chapter X light gem video :(

      Chapter 2 level 5 light gem: after you capture the troll kill him right before you jump down into the pit with the werewolves. If you look north you’ll see a dead knight and a staircase. Follow the stairs and it will lead you to an area with another dead knight and a health fountain.
