The Arisen’s Shadow is a quest in Dragon’s Dogma 2 where a shady hooded figure seems to be following the Arisen wherever they go. Read ahead as we go through the steps on how to complete The Arisen’s Shadow quest in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

How to unlock The Arisen’s Shadow quest in Dragon’s Dogma 2

To unlock The Arisen’s Shadow quest, complete at least one of the initial quests that you can get from Captain Brant. After doing so, you can roam around Vernworth and the quest should automatically appear in your quest log.

Contend with your pursuer

As you walk through Vernworth, turn around and you should notice a hooded guy following you from a distance. If you try to go towards its direction, the pursuer will then turn around and run away from you. Chase down the hooded guy and use the Grab action to pin him down to the ground.

Next, you have two options to choose from:

  • Accept the bribe

Your pursuer will then offer a bribe to you to let him go. If you choose to accept his bribe, you will complete the quest and receive 1,000 XP and 5,000 G.

  • Apprehend the pursuer

If you deny the bribe, you will then enter a fight against the hooded guy. Try to pin down the hooded guy for as long as possible until Brant comes along to take him for questioning. In case you or your pawns accidentally kill the guy before Brant can get to him, you have the option to carry the guy’s corpse over to where Brant is and use a Wakestone to revive him. This should trigger the cutscene where Brant apprehends the guy.

Wait for a few days and then return to Brant to find out that the hooded guy was from Battahl who was hired to spy on you. This will then complete the quest and you will be rewarded with 1,000 XP and 4,000 G.
