Once in the N/Gen Branch, look for these set of stairs (left). Run all the way up to the top to find the ghost.

Dead Ghost #7 - Ghost Fragment: Legends

Location : Dig Site 4

Grimoire : Allies > Legends & Mysteries

This Dead Ghost is best found after Dead Ghost #5. From the top you can look across from the staircase; there is a hole in the wall, it’s a tight fit but a Double Jump gets you there. Follow the path into Dig Site 4 and turn right at the red sign into the Ishtar Laboratory. Head into this room and down the left side to the opposite end. In this kitchen look in a sink to find the Dead Ghost.

Head through this doorway and look in the sink for the ghost.

Dead Ghost #10 - Ghost Fragment: Ghosts

Location : Waking Ruins - “Ishtar Collective”

Grimoire : Guardian > Ghost

Right from the start ride your Sparrow and go down the right path. Stick to the path until you see a chance to break off to the right where a structure is located. Don’t go right, instead turn left and dismount. You can normally find a mission beacon here on Patrols. Climb up the cliff and circle around to the left through the archway. Jump atop the highest point of the formation at the end of the cliff to find the Dead Ghost.

You must leap all the way up here from below. Jump on top of the pillar in this corner (left) to find the ghost.

Dead Ghost #11 - Ghost Fragment: Vex 2

Location : Campus 9 - “Ishtar Collective”

Grimoire : Enemies > Vex

From the starting location you can see a large building with a satellite on top. Head down the path and to the right of this building, leaping atop a smaller red structure. Reach the cliff from this location then make a running Double Jump across the large gap. The Dead Ghost is on the ledge.

You will need to climb the cliff face and climb around the stone structures to reach the ledge housing the ghost (right).

Location : Endless Steps - “Eye of a Gate Lord”

Grimoire : Enemies > Darkness

Dead Ghost #13 - Ghost Fragment: Thorn

Location : Ember Caves - “Scourge of Winter”

Grimoire : Inventory > Primary Weapons

Enter from the Headlands and race towards the Ishtar camp with their blue flags; it should be mostly a straight shot. There is a cave just before it to the right; follow it to the end and awaken the Dead Ghost.

When you reach this camp, take a right into the cave. Inside is the ghost.

Dead Ghost #14 - Ghost Fragment: The Dark Age 2

Location : Winter’s Lair - “Scourge of Winter”

Grimoire : Places > The City

Head through the cave until it opens up to a wider area. To the right you can see the sky and ramps that lead towards it; you’re not going that way! Instead turn left towards the darkness and navigate to the corner where a hidden path will lead to the Dead Ghost in the foliage.

You can also follow the ramp up here to the same corner and the ghost.
