    RandomPinkPie’s second book that is missing from above is “Liminal Bridges”. I found the first one, but not sure which it is. I can confirm that the other two are missing from this page as well.

    I don’t know if the person who made this and every other lorebook location reads the comments but, THANK YOU SO MUCH. By far the easiest to follow with a ton of information (the exact in game picture of lorebooks).

    • I do and you are very welcome 😀

  • Is this lorebook Map updated? And does it show all the locations of all the lore books or just most of them?

    • Just most of them

  • macadamia

    The Judgment of Saint Veloth is located in the stable in the town of Serk, directly south of the campfire icon on the map, northwest of where it is shown on the map above.

    BTW, great job on all of this work! I’ve found a couple if discrepancies but overall, this is the best lore book location guide I’ve found online. I’m playing on a console (PS4) so I’m late to the game, but I’ve been playing since console launch in June.

  • macadamia

    On the Detachment of the Sheath – I found this one on the second floor of City Center, where the shrines are.

    Arcana Restored – I found this one at the west end of the bridge entering Mournhold, south of where it is stated above.
