PERISH Codex Entries

Welcome to our PERISH Codex Entries guide. In this guide we will tell you where to find all codex entries in PERISH.

I separated the game into 4 acts and zones.
Every “act” means a “Crown” that allows you to skip to this act. (If you equip First crown – you’ll enter act 2, second Crown – to act 3, etc).

For weapons entries – you’ll need to unlock them with Orphic Rites and buy them.

For some entries you need certain objectives on a map.
If you can’t find some entries, tell me which one, I have a video for any of them.

To restore Ponos sword – you need to collect all 6 artefacts and bring them to Hipparchia in the hub (she is on a “second floor”).

For Good ending – you need to complete the game ONLY with the default items: Ponos (restored) and Saltpetre Jar. All crowns and rings should be removed!!!
