Tomes have been renamed to “scriptures,” and Darktide’s reworked loot system means the reward for locating grimoires and tomes is a bit completely different, this time round.

As a result of Darktide’s nonetheless in beta we will not inform you precisely the place to seek out every grimoire but. However as we observe down all their doable places, this is an outline of every part new about grimoires and tomes in Warhammer 40K: Darktide.
