Back to Legend of Grimrock 2

The Lexiconary is the lowest area of the Ruins of Desarune. There’s 5 secrets to find as well as one Power Gem. To access the Power Gem you’ll need to find the 4 figurines scattered around the level. Place them in the correct niche and the gate to the Power Gem will open.

Once you’re done with this area you have a few different options. You could head back to the Cemetery now that you have the clue to open the gate, or go West from the Archives and enter the Sewers.
