The Legacy quest is automatically triggered once you reach the top of Moonglint Tower, a crucial milestone that you’ll achieve upon completing the preceding main quest, The Guardian Gigantus. This seamless progression ensures that players are fully immersed in the narrative as they approach the game’s climactic moments.

This guide will walk you through the quest and finish the game with the true ending. We will also provide the other ending options.

Step 1: Defeat the Imposter

The first step in the Legacy quest involves overcoming the Pawns guarding the imposter’s ritual.

These Pawns represent a diverse range of vocations, from starter to advanced, so you must strategize to emerge victorious.

While it seems hard at first, the key to winning against all the enemies is to familiarize yourself with their attack patterns. Once you know their moves, the only thing to do is try to avoid every attacks and hit them immediately after.

Step 2: Face the Dragon

After the initial challenge, a cutscene will unveil the true identity of the Dragon that previously stole the player’s heart.

The Dragon will then present a choice: sacrifice your beloved in exchange for power or fight.

If you choose to sacrifice your beloved, you will end the quest and get the bad ending in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Step 3: Attack and Defeat the Dragon

If you choose to battle the Dragon, the final confrontation will commence on the battlefield.

The key to success lies in focusing attacks on the Dragon’s vulnerable heart, while also utilizing the scattered ballistas to rain down damage from a distance.

Keep doing it and try to avoid the fire breath and body slams. Keep your composure and you will find yourself victorious.

Step 4: Speak to the Pathfinder During the Credits

Upon defeating the Dragon, a cutscene will play, showcasing the Arisen taking their place on the throne.

To get the true ending, it’s crucial to interact with the Pathfinder, who is easily identifiable by their glowing presence beside the throne.

Step 5: Wield the Godsbane Blade

The Pathfinder will then send you back to the moment when you were about to ride the Dragon into battle.

From the Dragon’s back, you must descend to the Dragon’s belly and locate the Empowered Godsbane Blade in your inventory, using it on yourself to trigger the true ending sequence.

All Other Choices and Endings

While the true ending requires the steps outlined above, Dragon’s Dogma 2 offers alternative endings for you to explore:

Sacrifice your Beloved: If you choose to sacrifice your beloved in exchange for wealth and power, the resulting cutscene will depict a grim, hopeless outlook as you take the throne.

Not Interacting with the Pathfinder: By simply letting the credits roll without speaking to the Pathfinder during the celebration, you can unlock a different ending that diverges from the true conclusion.
