Rise of the Tomb Raider - Geothermal Valley Relics

Updated: 6/11/16()

This guide, along with the annotated level maps linked below, should help find any relics you missed. If you are playing this level for the first time, you may want to follow the main walkthrough instead.

Weapons, Equipment, and Outfits are covered elsewhere. Other collectibles are detailed on separate pages:

Documents · Murals · Coin Caches · Survival Caches · Strongboxes · Archivist Maps · Explorer Satchels · Codices · Crypt Treasures · Challenges · Missions

RELIC 1

The first relic is in the plaza near the Valley Farmstead Base Camp. It's under the canopy behind the men examining a map spread out on the ground. Check the level map and walkthrough if necessary. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 2

This relic is in a small, dark room below the Valley Farmstead Base Camp. To get there, head down the stairs to the east. Then make a U-turn to the right and continue down more stairs to a wooden barrier. (screenshot) Destroy the barrier with any gun and go inside to find the map sitting on a table. See the walkthrough and map for details. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 3

Relics #3 and #4 are in the House of the Afflicted Challenge Tomb. You can follow the walkthrough to find them or, if you've already raided the tomb, return to the Infirmary Base Camp, go through the doorway to the north, and you'll find this relic sitting on a table in the hallway.

RELIC 5

This relic is in the building near monolith #3, in the southeast corner of the section of the valley that is accessible on the first visit. Go around to the other side of the building from the monolith to get inside. See the walkthrough and map for details. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 6

Relics #6 and #7 are in the Catacomb of Sacred Waters Challenge Tomb. Follow the walkthrough if you have not yet raided this tomb. If you did but missed this document, return to the Aquifer Cavern Base Camp, drop into the big room with all the skulls, and you'll find the relic sitting near the north wall. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 7

This relic is also in the Catacomb of Sacred Waters Challenge Tomb. On your first visit, follow the walkthrough. Otherwise, return to the Aquifer Cavern Base Camp, drop into the big room with all the skulls, and go up the stairs. Swim or use the zip line to cross the pool, and on the right, you'll find the doorway to the codex room. (screenshot) The relic is sitting on the floor just as you drop down into the codex room. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 8

Relics #8 and #9 are found in the Pit of Judgment Challenge Tomb. Follow the walkthrough if you have not yet raided this tomb. If you did but missed this document, return to the Hidden Ravine Base Camp. Follow the tunnel down to the main cavern, swim across the pool, and turn around to face the mine cart tracks. Climb the tracks on the right, using your grapple to cross the wider gaps, and you'll find the relic sitting on the floor just before the alcove where the first mine cart was. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 9

This relic is also in the Pit of Judgment Challenge Tomb. To backtrack for it later, return to the Hidden Ravine Base Camp, follow the tunnel down to the main cavern, swim across the pool, and turn around to face the mine cart tracks. Climb the tracks on the right, using your grapple to cross the wider gaps. Then slide down the zip line. The relic is on the lower level of the wooden structure where the second mine cart was.

RELIC 10

This relic is in the upper village just before the tower you climb to get into the FLOODED ARCHIVES level. Check the map and walkthrough for details. If you missed it the first time, fast travel back to the Cathedral Courtyard Base Camp. Watch out for the lynx that lives in this area as you explore. You'll find the relic at the top of the stairs in the northern corner of the overgrown courtyard. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 11

This relic is hidden behind a wooden impact barrier a few steps northwest of the Ridgeline Base Camp. This camp is not accessible until you return from the FLOODED ARCHIVES level, but you can always return here later if you missed it. Again, see the map and walkthrough if necessary.

RELIC 12

The last 2 relics are in the Baths of Kitezh Challenge Tomb. If it's your first time in that area, follow the main walkthrough. If you missed this relic, return to the Whirlpool Sanctuary Base Camp, and you'll find this relic sitting on the floor beside the campfire. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 13

Again, you'll probably want to follow the main walkthrough the first time you explore the Baths of Kitezh Challenge Tomb, but if you overlooked this relic, just fast travel back to the Whirlpool Sanctuary Base Camp, go through the trapped hallway to the northwest, and you'll find the relic sitting on a shelf on the left just before the stairs leading up.
