    These are marked on the map with the sigil of Gondor.
    To make it easier to find them, scan for them using the Haedir towers.
    There are a five cities that have artefacts.
    Minas Ithril (it has been pointed out on the forums that once Act One is completed, Ithril opens up again as Minas Morgul - Thanks to The AllSlayer for confirming)
    Cirinth Ungol
    Seregost
    Nurnen
    Gorgoroth.

    There is one, in Seregost, that will require you to gain a skill to get in to the cave to pick it up (you can only see it by air).
    Follow the quest line for Carnen and eventually you'll unlock 'Summon Dragon' from the Beast skilltree.
    There is also another way, but it relies on hoping that a Drake spawns naturally using shadow mount.
    Either way you'll also need to unlock shadow mount, as the Drake always spawns in the air.
    Fly towards to ice wall (West to East) and you'll see a cave in the waterfall covered in ice, which makes it unclimbable.
    Fly so the Drakes head is inside to cave and dismount, it might take a few attempts to get Talion to go in to cave instead of falling to the floor and having tk shadow mount again.
    Below is a map of the offending artefact.

    Note: You can climb the ice frozen waterfall to reach the artefact too. If you're struggling to find out where to climb you can still use a Drake. (Thanks to FreshBlood 21)
    Happy hunting

    Hirogen HunterYou get one while rescuing some gondorian soldiers. I think the specific quest was called "The Wages of War" Its the last Gondor quest in Seregost If your still missing the Last one

    SolaceConquestThe app is glitched, it'll get added to your GS.

    SolaceConquestThe app when it comes to this game, doesn't always unlock them. It'll even show up on yout account later when you tur your Xbox back on after a few hours, or show up after a hard reset.
    Probably come because Achievements weren't available until a couple of hours after release date hit. I've never known the app to have this many problems.

    Master Forger, Shadow Wars' achievement and two of the Ring Wraith ones seem to be ones others struggle with it loading on.

    thunderkiss92Great guide! If I were you, though, I'd mention that the one of them cannot be obtained unless you're playing through the Gondor questline. Can't remember the name of the mission exactly, but you get one as a reward for completing one of the missions. Not missable, but the artifact doesn't appear on the map. For awhile I thought my game was glitched or I'd made some mistake, until I saw it mentioned here in the comments. Thanks to Hirogen Hunter's comment above, I was able to get the achievement. toast

    Ashen Seraph1 artifact being tied to a mission in Seregost desperately needs to be added to this solution.

    The actual mission that unlocks it is "The Uninvited," not "The Wages of War."
