  • The Gilded Arena

    In the Gilded Arena to summon Gnashor, the Arena Champion. But you must first find the 3 Animus Stones to resurrect him, since this is a stone imbued with the power to breathe life into sleeping horrors.

    Boss Fight: Gnashor

    Summoning Gnashor, the Gilded Arena Champion for a fight.

    How to beat the Gnashor Boss Fight tips:
    Mastering Deathgrip during this boss fight is essential to defeating the Gnashor snake form.
    After Gnashor takes enough damage, he’ll form into the Bone Giant that’s the actual Gilded Arena Champion.
    The Bone Giant will use the Gnashor part of him as a weapon, so stay clear of that. Keep beating on him and keep your distance when he does his screaming and stomping moves.
    Note that you can use Deathgrip to quickly get close to the Bone Giant to attack him during the short periods he’s not attacking you.
    To win you must pull Gnashor out of the Bone Giant when he’s about to do the screaming move, and then keep attacking Gnashor to damage the boss until he’s defeated!

    After you kill Gnashor, return The Golden Skull to the Eternal Throne to pay “The Toll of Kings”.

    After talking to the dead king, you’ll unlock the “By Your Command” achievement/trophy when he gives you the power of command over the Dead Lords of the Abyssal Plains.

    Chapter 7: The Dead King & The Dead Lords

    Phariseer’s Tomb

    Locate Phariseer’s Tomb underneath the wastes of the Dead Plains and revive & fight him. He’s the first of the Dead Lords to desert the Dead King’s rule. Phariseer, able to peer deep within the life of a soul, ignores the impending sight of any consequence for his treason.

    Judicator’s Tomb

    Find Judicator’s Tomb by going via The Maw to The Spine area and speak with Judicator.
    The second of the Dead Lords you need to summon for the Dead King: Judicator. You need to collect 3 souls for him. The first soul is at the beginning of the quest, the 2nd soul starts at 14:50 minutes, and the 3rd soul starts at 24:30 minutes.
    He’ll fall in line after you bring him the 3 souls.

    Psychameron & Boss Fight: Basileus & Achidna

    Find Psychameron by fast traveling to the Gilded Arena. Survive the Psychameron and then defeat Basileus and his pet-spider Achidna.

    Basileus, the third Dead Lord to forsake the Dead King and the Court of Bones. Said to be the most powerful of the three. Return his allegiance to the Dead King’s command.

    How to beat the Basileus & Achidna Boss Fight tips:
    This is the third story related boss fight in the game and it cannot be missed.
    Basileus is a Ghost enemy that uses a range of very fast and powerful attacks. Always evade if he starts floating or renders invisible. That’s when he prepares for a heavy attack. The best tactic for this fight is to summon Ghouls. Fully upgrade all skills that improve your Ghouls. You can reset your skill points for a small fee of 1000 Gold by buying the Respec token from Vulgrim (the demon merchant, he is marked on the map as “General Items” and can be found at the Weeping Crag, north-east of the Forge).
    While the Ghouls fight Basileus you can use your pistol to boost new wrath points. While fighting the Spider Achidna use your secondary weapon for some heavy hits. – Tips thanks to Powerpyx
    When Basileus begins to ride Achidna, make sure you equip your Deathgrip to get up close to the giant spider quickly, which will then allow you to both do serious damage to Achidna up close and during your attack throw Basileus off Achidna and continue the boss fight against him alone.

    Now that you have swayed the wayward Dead Lords to their Master’s rule, return them to the Dead King aboard the Eternal Throne.

    Darksiders 2 Walkthrough continues on Page 5 with Chapter 8: City of the Dead.
