Vault of Defiled Truth is a location in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.


Accessed from the Duskmoon Tower after unlocking a gate with the Void Key which can be found in the Midnight Helix. The Vault of Defiled Truth connects to the Gutter of Misery.

The Vault of Defiled Truth contains a gloomy central courtyard filled with trees that whisper forlornly in a faint breeze, surrounded by twisting passages and balconies. The areas is full of dead ends and bow-wielding enemies waiting patiently in eternal ambush for the unwary and the unprepared. 


The creatures here include a horde of Hobgoblins as well as a pair of Goblin Shamans, four Greater Goblins and a Cockatrice on the first floor courtyard.

Pre-Daimon, additionally there are several Leapworms on the first floor and an Ogre with a Siren on the second. A Garm might appear.

Post-Daimon there are either two Gorecyclopes with Sirens in the first floor courtyard and a Golem on the second floor and three Garm might spawn - or eight Corrupted Pawns, a Cockatrice, and two Eliminators. Death may appear.
