Darksiders 2: Forge Lands Side Quest Guide
The Maker Warrior
This is one of the first Side Quests you come across in Tri-Stone, although it’s very difficult at level 2. You can start the quest by speaking with Thane at the combat dummies just next to the entrance. It may be possible to defeat Thane when you first arrive, but the amount of time it would take wouldn’t really be worth it, it’s best if you wait until level 5 although again, it is possible at level 4 once you have the gun. If you wait until level 5 and use the weapon gained from the boss fight, you should down him pretty easily just dodging to attack his rear. Be cautious of his three hit combo attack when he says “Is that all you’ve got”. After completing this Side Quest you unlock 4 more quests

Find and Kill Bheithir
This quest can only be attempted after you’ve got access to Deathgrasp. Bheithir is the flying flame bird located in the basement of The Nook. To get to him, just jump on both the Deathgrasp hooks. Be cautious, there’s not much room to fight here. When you hit the platform, you have about 10-15 seconds before he lands on the South end. He does have a knock-back attack that initiates when he lands, so keep your distance. I attempted this at level 11 and it was very difficult using normal means, and the weapon dropped is for level 15, so I’d imagine it’s meant for higher level players.
To defeat Bheithir, it’s rather simple. Keep your distance and continue to shoot with you gun, it does tiny damage but it hurts. When Bheithir gets close, use Teleport Slash to travel to the other side, and then dodge backwards twice to avoid the jump AoE that knocks you down. Ensure to stay at max range as much as possible to avoid the flame attack. Just rinse and repeat this technique, I killed Bheithir in about 5 minutes doing this. You can also switch into Reaper Form for a few back attacks after using Teleport Slash.

He’s a pretty simple boss fight also. There are some roaming vines that you have to avoid, or else they’ll route you. other than that, simply dodge and attack from the rear.

You obtain this quest by speaking with Muria on the West side of Tri-Stone. She asks you to collect a variety of materials in order to create a special Talisman. Your first task is to track down Karn, he can be found at the entrance to the Cauldron, you automatically encounter him during the main quest line so you can’t miss him. Just remember to speak to him about the Shaman’s Craft. He’ll tell you that Stalkers Bone can be found from Stalkers deep within the Cauldron. This is another area you have to travel through for the main quest line so you can’t miss it, it’s also where you get introduced to possessed weapons. Once you’ve got the Stalkers Bone, don’t waste your time quick traveling to speak with Karn again, you can do it at the end of the dungeon. The next part of the quest requires you to collect Mordant Dew from Stingers in Drenchfoot.
Again, you arrive at the required area during the main quest line. After you get the gun and blow open the big door, you’ll encounter stingers as your first enemy in the new Drenchfoot area. You need to complete a few of the main quests before you can continue. You’ll see Karn during your travels when you head to The Lost Temple. You’ll get the Carven Stone when you meet the floating head.
Sticks & Stones
This quest is ongoing through a number of areas, check out our Sticks & Stones Quest Guide for more information.
This is another quest that takes some time to complete it. To unlock the quest you must travel to The Fjord and head to the watery area in the South West. From there travel to the furthest South West corner, just South East past Vulgrim. Walk to the dead end and speak with yourself (action button) this begins the quest. You can’t complete this quest until you complete the Drenchfort and obtain the Maker’s Key. Once you’ve restored the Maker’s Forge, you need to head back to the Fjord to the same location you discovered the quest. Just South West of the store. Oran asks you to find the missing parts of his body and gives you the next quest in this quest chain
Wandering Stone Quest
You obtain this quest by completing Silent Stone. You’re tasked with finding 4 parts of Oran’s body. The Right Leg can be found in the Fjord, North East of Oran’s location. If you check the map, it’s in the slight indentation down to the South before reaching Drenchfoot. His Right Arm can be found on the Shadow Gorge path. It’s impossible to miss as it blocks half of the road. The Left Leg can be found South East of Baneswood, just after the second archway on the way through to the Charred pass. The final body part can be found South East of the entrance to The Cauldron, just outside the entrance to the dungeon Scar.

You can get this quest by speaking with Alya after they’ve created the Maker’s Key. She asks you to go to the Shattered Forge and retrieve her brother’s lost hammer. The Shattered Forge can be found on the Shadow Gorge passing to the West side of the map. It’s a pretty simple dungeon, although there is a Book of the Dead page inside that you won’t want to miss. After you’ve got the hammer from within, head back to Alya.
