How to complete Sphinx Riddles in Dragon’s Dogma 2

The Sphinx quest is a two-parter, with each set containing five riddles. Afterward, the “final riddle” consists of a boss fight against the Sphinx. If you’re having trouble with only one riddle, jump around this page by using the Table of Contents below.

Before we get into the riddles, there is something very important you need to know. If you want to have a good chance at completing the Sphinx side quest in its entirety, it would be best to switch to a vocation that can equip arrows by the time you reach the last riddle. Completing the quest is incredibly difficult without using the Unmaking Arrow. Now onto the riddles.

Before starting the riddles, you must find the Sphinx well hidden in the mountains. The Sphinx can be found in the Mountain Shrine, through the Ancient Ruins. I recommend starting from Checkpoint Rest Town and heading north. Follow the path in the image below until you reach the Ancient Ruins, and then progress through it to get to the Mountain Shrine.

Now that you have found the Sphinx, it’s time to solve the long list of riddles. To make it simple, we will start with the first available option: the Riddle of Eyes.

Riddle of Eyes solution

The Riddle of Eyes is one of the easiest riddles in the quest, but it doesn’t seem that way initially. The Sphinx will ask you to retrieve an “item of greatest value” inside a door that opens nearby. Head inside the door and immediately upon entering, pull a 360 and look up. You will notice a treasure chest up high, which you can reach by climbing the rocks.

Open the treasure chest to get the Sealing Phial item. The Sealing Phial is the “item of greatest value,” so return it to the Sphinx and hand it over. After handing it over, you will have completed the Riddle of Eyes, and a treasure chest will open.
