If you're starting Dragon's Dogma 2 and find yourself facing the Sphinx in the A Game of Wits quest, you're in for a difficult yet rewarding trip. This guide will help you through every stage of the journey, from locating the Sphinx to solving her riddles and collecting your rewards.

How to Find the Sphinx in Dragon’s Dogma 2

The quest begins with finding the Sphinx, which can be reached via either the Ancient Battleground or the Misty Marshes. The Ancient Battleground is located north of the Checkpoint Rest Town but is populated with strong enemies, including a high-level Dragon. Alternatively, the Misty Marshes, while being covered in mist, provide a less dangerous passage to the Mountain Shrine, where the Sphinx lives.

Misty Marshes Route

  • Navigate the Misty Marshes by following the showed path and ascending until sunlight bursts through the mist.

  • To encounter the Sphinx, head to the Mountain Shrine at the top.

Ancient Battleground Route

  • Head north from Checkpoint Rest Town to the Ancient Battleground.

  • Overcome enemies and climb the crumbling castle until you find an opening that leads to the Worldsend Cave.

  • Traverse the cave, looking for Sphinx markings, until you reach the Mountain Shrine.

  • It is recommended that you bring a Portcrystal and Ferrystones for effective travel during this quest.
