A Game of Wits DD2 Quest Explained

Before telling you specifically what you need to do to complete this mission, let's see in broad terms what it is. The A Game of Wits DD2 quest is one of those quests that is not affected by the passage of time, so this means you can complete it whenever you want. However, you must take into account that there are different outcomes.

Since the A Game of Wits DD2 quest will require you to correctly answer a series of riddles, you have no chance of making a mistake. In fact, in the case of a wrong answer, the Dragon's Dogma 2 Sphinx will abandon your game and this will mean that you can no longer complete the riddles (and unlock the related trophy or achievement) for that game, but you will have to start a new one.

Consequently, if you don't want to run into this problem, in this guide, we will provide you with the correct answers to the riddles that will be proposed to you. In case you don't want to know the correct answer immediately, you can also opt to save in the cloud, so as to have another chance in case of an incorrect answer.

Locate the Sphinx at Mountain Shrine

The best position from which to start to find this place is certainly Checkpoint Rest Town and from there you will have to continue east and then go north.

Riddle: “Our eyes are our allies, yet oft do they betray, for eyes tell lies, so I advise, and thence do lead astray. Yet how will your eyes advise you? Venture through yonder door, and retrieve that which of greatest value.

What you will have to do is basically find some valuable items inside a cave. Be careful because the road will not be easy at all, as there will be enemies and traps guarding it.

Alternatively, if you have decided to play with the Thief, Fighter, or Warrior class, you can also bring this character to the position where the Sphinx is located. Finally, you can also make use of a port crystal positioned right near its location so that you can use it to transport the character. By completing this riddle, you will receive a Portcrystal.

The Riddle of Wisdom

The Riddle of Rumination

Riddle: “It's ever the first we keep fond in our breast, and ever the first that eclipses the rest. You know of the Seeker's Tokens, I trust? Those keepsakes of a fondly remembered journey? Yet where was it that you found your first? Retrace your steps, if you can – you might make a new discovery. Seven days, shall we say, ere you return? May your journey be a pleasant one.

This riddle is not easy to solve, because you will have to remember the place where you collected your first Seeker's Token. Go to that place and in the exact place where you collected the Seeker's Token, there will be an item very similar to it but it is called Finder's Token. Once found, return to Sphinx to show her the item. You will receive three Ferrystones as a reward.

The Riddle of Recollection

Riddle: “Now, questions beget questions, and I have one for you. How many riddles have you solved thus far? My memory fails me, you see. Remind me, and make it plain. Let yonder statues be your means. For every question aptly answered, bring one here before me.

On the left of the Sphinx you can see that there are some stone statues. What you have to do is bring the right number of figurines that correspond to the riddles completed correctly up to that point. However, pay attention to the fact that the riddles in this second part of the A Game of Wits DD2 quest can be random, so take this aspect into consideration.

The Riddle of Contest

Riddle: “Though ours is a battle of wits, tests of mettle are more to your strength. Is that not so? Come, try your arm – though he shall be your opponent, not I. However, I am not one to be amused by a simple duel. Bear this ring into battle, that I might gauge your true strength.

To complete this riddle, all you have to do is kill the enemy that will spawn on the right. You will receive the Ring of Ambition as a reward.

The Riddle of Futility

Riddle: “How easily the mind unravels! Some say it’s pain that does it best, others darkness – but I say neither.

Here I have an amphora destine for Ser Maurits in Battahl. Deliver it to him, but beware; it’s rather fragile.

Once you get this riddle, you will have to carry a vase to Mural Byway without breaking it. Here you will find an NPC near the Sphinx statue that you will have to talk to. Once you complete this task, you will get the Eternal Bond Ring as a reward. We advise you to make a save before leaving on your trip, so in case you break the vase you will have the opportunity to try again.

The Riddle of Differentiation

Riddle: “So vast is the world, and full of life; you are but one of many. Indeed, in the grand scheme, we are as distinct from one another as pebbles on a beach – yet we do so love to extol our differences. But are these differences so great? If you believe so, this next task should prove exceedingly simple. I seek this man. If men are so distinct, I’m sure you’ll find him in a trice.

To complete this riddle, you will need to find Dante or Vergil. Dante is found in Checkpoint Rest town, while Vergil is found in Bakbattahl. Once found, you will have to take them to Sphinx. If your character is not a Thief, Fighter, or Warrior, you can make use of a Portcrystal. Once you complete this task, you will get a Whimsical Daydream as a reward.

Beat the Sphinx

Once you have completed all ten riddles, in order to complete the A Game of Wits DD2 quest, you will have to defeat the Sphinx. The battle will not be quick and easy, as this boss has four health bars that you will have to empty to defeat her. Once defeated, you will have finally completed the mission.
