Darksiders II: Like a Noss Trophy Guide (Optional Bosses)
Below you’ll find each monsters’ locations, strategies and rewards.
Quest: Find and Kill Gorewood
Attempt this quest once Death has reached the 10-15 level mark. Once he falls into that range, venture to the Weeping Crag, found in the Forge Lands. Upon entering the area, search for a climbable surface on the left to access an optional area, one that does not cross paths with the main story. Upon entering the stoney structure, you’ll end up in a small area that closes itself off to pit you against a Stalker. Defeat the beast and proceed onwards until you find water deep enough to dive in. Submerge Death in the water until you emerge to find a small, circular area. Here you’ll come face to face with golem named Gorewood.
Once Gorewood has been vanquished, Death will receive the Gorewood Maul.
Quest: Find and Kill Bheithir
Death should be between level 15-20 and NEEDS to have obtained the Death Grip ability before taking on this enormous phoenix. Bheithir can be found in the Nook, just past the Weeping Crag where Gorewood was located. Navigate down into the Nook’s basement. You’ll know you’re on the right track when you see stairs leading down with flowing lava visible to the left. At the bottom of the stairs, use Death Grip to cross over to the narrow platform which Bheithir is flying above.
Upon striking down Bheithir, Death will be rewarded with Bheithir’s Talons.
Quest: Find and Kill Achidna
Achidna is the easiest boss to locate, mainly because this over-sized spider is a part of the main story. At this point, you should be around level 15-20. It is worth noting that Achidna isn’t alone. A formidable foe rides the spider and jumps down from time to time to fight Death.
*The name of the rider has been omitted to avoid spoilers. The character shall be referred to as “the rider” in the strategy below.
When the rider yields, Death will receive Achidna’s Fangs.
Quest: Find and Kill the Deposed King
Argul, also referred to as the Deposed King, is the final side quest boss that Thane wants eliminated. Being the last of the four, he is the strongest. For this reason, it is suggested that Death be above level 20. You can find the Deposed King in the Kingdom of the Dead. Enter the Kingdom of the Dead and ride across the bridge. On the other side to the left, you should see a tomb entrance (Lair of the Deposed King) surrounded by bones extending out of the ground. Inside lies a frozen Argul.
When the Deposed King is no more, Death will be given the Scepter of the Deposed King.
Return to Thane
Head back to Tri-Stone and approach Thane. Talk to him about each boss. After you’ve finished sharing your glorious victories, the “Like a Noss” trophy/achievement will unlock.
