Introduction
Devotion shrines are scattered around the world of Cairn. Each shrine requires items or combat to activate and grants a Devotion point to unlock a single star in Grim Dawns Devotion system. Many shrines can hardly be missed by following the storyline of the game, but some are a bit more hidden.

You can see a bigger version of each map picture by clicking on it. In each picture, the map is rotated to default view for easy comparison (north = straight up).

Each shrine in this guide is tagged with , and to show in which difficulties it is available. Number of available shrines throughout the whole game:

Normal
Elite
Ultimate
Base Game
30
33
36
Ashes of Malmouth Expansion (AoM)
6
7
11
Forgotten Gods Expansion (FG)

Total

50
58

Even though there are more shrines, you can only get 55 Devotion points (50 in the base game), and after that, shrines will stop granting points.

Thank all of you for and all your nice comments!

Checklist
I created a printable checklist for those who would like to track their progress on multiple characters (print once per character) or just want a quick overview. I made two versions of it, each one in its own tab in the document:

  1. All shrines in the order of progression through the game. Names and order as they are here in the guide.
  2. Alphabetical order to compare to the ingame list. Uses ingame names and also has reference numbers to the shrines here in the guide.

And here is the link:
Grim Dawn Devotion Shrine Checklist (Google Docs)[docs.google.com]
Worldmap
Not updated for FG yet!

I also assembled a full world map with all shrines unlocked. The numbers on the map correspond to the numbers in the guide. Also there are difficulty markers to show which guides are available in Elite (yellow) and Ultimate (orange).

The map is rather big and Steam doesn't allow to zoom embedded pictures. That's why I uploaded it elsewhere. If the link doesn't already open in your webbrowser, right-click it and copy the link address.

Hi. Great work btw.

Just wanted to say here that the ransacked lighthouse shrine (AOM) doesn't exist in elite or ultimate.
Inovade May 30 @ 4:21am

i've killed monster and still nothing
Artemis May 30 @ 12:34am 
Yea I had to go find another list for the base game shrines.

Some of the shrines in Act 1, etc are only available if you have the FG expansion, but the guide does not mention that.

@Felpa
I can assure you that all shrines listed for normal difficulty are there (30 base game and 6 AoM). I just double checked with a character which did a full map clear in Normal after FG release.
Felpa Apr 20 @ 3:46pm 
hi there, apparently the qty of shrines on normal difficulty is wrong, i cannot find more than 33 and even the world map shows 33. base game 28, AOM 5

@The one true king:

Hi! This is a great work!
I can't find 5. Burrwitch Outskirts on elite. It seems to have been gone :reuschicken:

Big update for FG is here, includes all new shrines and updates to old ones. Most shrines are now available in all 3 difficulties.
