All Chests, Maidens, & Runes (Corrected/Complete)
The existing guide is not accurate, so I decided to post a corrected version. I used the guide submitted by dtolley and added the changes suggested by JieXY. I also removed all the boss tips because there is a separate guide for that. I got all the collection achievements with no trouble.
Chest, Maiden, and Rune Locations
RUINS (2 chests)
Starting the game you'll be in what I would call a training stage. You'll be fighting different colored wraiths. Once you get to the end of the area, on the far right side you should see chest # 1. In this same area go to the left of the screen and then come back toward the camera near the snowpile, chest # 2 is there.
PIRATE (6 chests, 2 maidens, 1 rune)
Part 1: As soon as you start, come back towards the camera, chest # 3 is on the right. Head forward fighting a few enemies and you should see chest # 4 in sight on the left side. There will be some vines on the left side soon, break them to find Maiden # 1. Proceed forward until you see some vines on the right, break them to find chest # 5. Continue on your way to the area at the dock. After crossing the bridge, you'll encounter a Captain. In this area, chest # 6 is behind the elevator.
Part2: You'll be shown the green runes # 1, so if you miss them, you might as well quit playing now. Continue playing and after the first ship battle, (where you have to shoot arrows at the ship) you will find chest # 7 on the second ledge where the two archers are. After the second ship battle there will be a path on the right. Chest # 8 and maiden # 2 are here.
DESERT (5 chests, 1 rune)
You will come across a cart that is blocking your path. After moving it out of the way you'll be in an area that you will have to knock a pillar over to climb up. This area also has green runes # 2. Kill everyone, knock pillar over, climb up and head left. Break far left gate to find chest # 9 You will come to an area that you have to slide a pillar over and knock some pillars down to pass. Knock the first pillar down and climb to the second level. Go to the far left and break another gate to find chest # 10. You should have no problem finding the next two chests. After climbing up next to the falling sand, you should see some more breakable gates. Break these to find chest # 11 and chest # 12
The next chest will be found during the dragon fight. Once you fight him a couple times a cut scene will show you hanging on to a tower and it's falling down. Start climbing and you'll see chest # 13 on the left about halfway up.
VOODOO (10 chests, 6 maidens, 3 runes)
Part 1: Start burning all the huts down. One of the huts on the right side contains chest # 14. Maiden # 3 is also on the right pretty close to this area. Be sure to get red rune # 1 here as well. After burning through the blockage, burn all the huts (and the leather hut) You will find chest # 15, chest # 16, chest # 17, and chest # 18 here. In a few you should come to a save point. Grab some fire and back-track to some briars that can be burned. A couple lions will jump down, so watch it. Climb up the ledge to get chest # 19. Break the barrier into the next section, go left and find chest # 20 and maiden # 4. You will then see a cutscene of Conan saving a maiden. There will be maiden # 5 next to yellow symbol windstone. Burn hut next to blue symbol windstone for chest # 21.
Part 2: Kill monkeys and find the green runes # 3. Next room you will see a health urn on the left. Climb up there and you'll find chest # 22. In the next section, follow the path next to the tar and go up the ramp. A monkey comes through the wall and reveals maiden # 6. You will come to a spot where you have to break a chain and pull the wall down. Maiden # 7 is right next to you. In this area you will find blue runes # 1. Follow along right wall next to tar and another monkey will break through to show you chest # 23. Maiden # 8 is on right wall by monkey next to blue rune.
