Book of Death is a side story quest in Wayfinder.



Recover the work of Brother Skepsos—Shadow and Flora pages—for the Curator of the Codex Archives. You can find the pages in the Repository of Knowledge when you use Flora or Shadow Imbuements.


The Codex Curator wants to recover research dealing with Shadow and Flora energies. If you use either a Shadow Imbuement, Flora Imbuement, or a combination of the two on your expeditions into the Repository of Knowledge, you should be able to find the pages he needs.


Using a combination of Shadow and Flora Imbuements, you were able to to recover Brother Skepsos's research into remnants. Omen believes these techniques may help to refine the methods the Seekers use to create Echoes.

Start Quest

I never dreamt this day could come. The Archons have scattered our defenders, and even now they are pillaging our halls. But their victory will be short lived.


How so?


I know the plans of the First Scribe. She will cast everything into darkness... and then draw the faithful back into the world. Hold fast to your faith, Initiate. It is your path to immortality.


What should I do now?


Serve the First, you fool! Haven't you been listening? We must finish our work, gathering all the research scattered across the Substrata. Our lives mean nothing, but we must preserve our knowledge.


So, what must I find next?


Brother Skepsos is working with the elements of Flora and Shadow in the Repository of Knowledge. Find him in the Substrata; tell him you need his notes. And be quick; we must seal the archive soon!


Flora and Shadow... this must be tied to Akhailo's work. From what we've seen, Skepsos is dead. But you may be able to recover his work by using Shadow or Flora mutators. See what you can find.

Clear Phase 1

Yes, you've found all of Skepsos's work. Bring it to me on your next Expedition into the Undercroft.

Clear Quest

Apologies for the blood, Initiate. I had to kill two Archons. We're running out of time, but our work is almost done. Now give me Skepsos's work.


I was right. Brother Akhailo was using Flora and Chaos energy to create remnant forms, but they had no consciousness. Skepsos believed Shadow energy could catch the impression of a mind...

The remnants they've created here aren't truly conscious, like Echoes. But they don't need Gloom Daggers—or the strength of will that makes you a Wayfinder.

We can't create an infinite number of Gloom Daggers. We may be able to use this data to refine our techniques. Avala... Lord Halar will be very interested in this.


The Curator, trapped as a remnant... it's sad.


The Curator died decades ago. This remnant isn't truly conscious, and you can't change his fate. But this knowledge may help those still living. You've done well, my friend.
