Remnant 2: The Awakened King – How To Get Leywise’s Index Of The Scribe


You’ll find a lot of goodies in Remnant 2, one of which is a reward from an NPC who has fallen out of favor. Our guide discusses how to get the Index of the Scribe in Remnant 2: The Awakened King, which requires you to find a tome for an NPC named Leywise.

How to get the Index of the Scribe from Leywise in Remnant 2: The Awakened King

To get the Index of the Scribe in Remnant 2: The Awakened King, you’ll need to find the Misplaced Memoir quest item so it can be given to Leywise. Leywise himself is met fairly early on when you begin your DLC run. Upon spawning in the Forlorn Coast, you should find him inside the first sewer area that’s adjacent to the docks.

Leywise gives you a brief background about himself, and he also sells some wares. These include the Atonement Fold, a ring that inflicts bleeding on your character while also increasing your critical hit chance by 10%.

Leywise only sells a few items.

Misplaced Memoir location

We found the Misplaced Memoir at the back alley past the entrance to the palace. We got to this area much later in our Awakened King DLC run. You can see the location on the map below:

We found the Misplaced Memoir much later after we had explored most of the Forlorn Coast.

Take note that procedural generation and randomness might apply, but here’s what transpired during our run:

  • From the initial area in the Forlorn Coast, we entered the Great Sewers dungeon and took out the Bloat King miniboss.
  • From there, we reached another part of the Forlorn Coast, known as the Drowned Wen. We continued exploring past the dockyards (where we unlocked the Ritualist class) until we arrived at the Mournful Promenade.
  • The bridge leading to the palace was ruined, so we climbed down a ladder that looped around the cliffside area. This led to a checkpoint (not a nominal fast travel point).
  • At the end of the palace ruins, we eliminated a Nobleman elite. We then saw the red glow of the Misplaced Memoir quest item at the back of the square.

The ruined bridge in the Mournful Promenade (left) eventually leads to a yard/square that has the Misplaced Memoir (right).

Index of the Scribe effects

Now that you have the Misplaced Memoir, it’s time to acquire the Index of the Scribe in Remnant 2: The Awakened King. Simply return to Leywise’s location in the initial sewers area. You should be able to unlock a large wooden door at the palace yards that leads back down to the sewers.

Hand over the quest item to Leywise and you’ll be given the Index of the Scribe. This amulet has the following effect: Increases mod and skill weak spot damage by 35%.

The Index of the Scribe boosts your DPS considerably if you can land accurate shots to enemy weak spots.

As you can see, the damage boost from this amulet is quite significant, especially if you can land weak spot hits often with pinpoint accuracy. Don’t forget that you can still obtain other goodies, such as the Nimue decisions/rewards and the Monarch weapon.

Remnant 2: The Awakened King takes you to a new zone in the region of Losomn. The DLC itself is filled with many secrets, including the Ritualist class. For other tips and tactics, you can visit our Remnant 2 guides hub.
