Riddle of Eyes

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 is of greatest value.
Submit the Sealing Phial found at a chest on top of the doorway the Sphinx just opened

How to Get the Sealing Phial

2As you enter the doorway, look on top of the doorway and you’ll see a chest containing the Sealing Phial. Climb the debris to get to the chest and loot its content.Note: You don’t have to explore the whole cave.

Riddle of Madness

So bring forth your most beloved to me, that I might gauge the depth of your insanity.
Bring a Pawn to the Sphinx or bring an NPC whom you have the most affinity with to the Sphinx

Reward:Whichever Item you Submitted

Riddle of Rumination

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.

Riddle of Contest

Though ours is a battle of wits, tests of mettle are more to your strength. Is that not so?

However, I am not one to be amused by a simple duel.
Bear this ring into battle, that I might gauge your true strength.
Stagger your opponent to carry him and throw him off the cliff
Reward:Ring of Ambition

Riddle of Futility

How easily the mind unravels! Some say it’s pain that does it best, others darkness—but I say neither.
Rather, I say a mind cannot be more soundly broken than when it beholds its earnest efforts laid low in a single stroke.
Could you survive such despair? We shall see.
Here I have an amphora destined for Ser Maurits in Battahl. Deliver it to him, but beware; it’s rather fragile.
I do hope your struggle will amuse.
Carry the amphora to Ser Maurits by foot.You can also leave the amphora and go to Ser Maurits, carry him, and use a Ferrystone to travel to the nearest Portcrystal from the Sphinx and bring him there. You can then carry the amphora to him safely.
Reward:Eternal Bond

Riddle of Differentiation

So vast is this 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.
Bring an NPC that looks exactly like the Sphinx showed you.
Reward:Whimsical Daydream

How to Beat Sphinx

Note:Attacking the Sphinx while you haven’t solved all of the riddles will lock you out from completing them.

Use the Unmaking Arrow

Using the Unmaking Arrow will easily one-shot the Sphinx and will earn you XP, Gold, and its drops. The Sphinx leaves the area after sometime during the fight, which makes it impossible to pursue it once it files off if you haven’t finished it off yet.
