Sphinx Location To Start Riddle In Dragon’s Dogma 2

Sphinx Resides at the Mountain Shrine in the north part of Vermund, the Kingdom of Humanity.

The easiest west to reach the Shrine is starting at Checkpoint Rest Town, but first, you must get Oxcart.

Further, you should start your journey from Rest Town, follow the main road, and head towards the north.

If you are at an early stage, you might struggle to overcome the enemies; otherwise, they might not be an issue.

Following the path will lead you to Ancient Battleground; ensure to head straight until you find a huge cave across the cliff.

As soon as you approach Sprinx, the game of the Wits will begin offering the first riddle, Riddle of Eyes.

To complete the first riddle, you just need to enter the giant cave across the final stairs, which leads to the Sphinx, and search for the treasure box that contains the Sealing Phial.

Bringing the Sealing Phial back to Sphinx will give you a Walkstone and unlock the second Riddle: The Riddle Of Madness.

In the second riddle, you must present Sphinx, your main Pawn, which will eventually lead you to the Sphinx Parent riddle, the Roddle of Wisdom in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Sphinx asks you to bring a Father, Mother, or Parent in Riddle Of Wisdom, which requires access to the Rift of Fellowship first.

You can interact with any of the Riftstones and examine the list of Pawns.

Even though the Pawn lists contain Sphinx Mother and Sphinx Father, you should avoid them when specifically searching for Sphinx Parent.

Adding a marker to the specific pawn will display a checkmark over them, which makes players easy to find and approach.

Unfortunately, you must leave one of your Pawns stranded before hiring a new one.

After getting yourselves a new companion: Sphinx Parent, you can take the long journey to the Shrine or teleport back using Ferrystone and finally hand over the Pawn.

Completing the Sphinx Parent Riddle will grant you 1200 RC and another Riddle, i.e, Riddle Of Conviction
