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


Initially accessed from the Duskmoon Tower, 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. 


Pre-Daimon the creatures here include a horde of Hobgoblins as well as a pair of Goblin Shaman and four Greater Goblins, plus an Ogre and Siren, and a Cockatrice on the first floor courtyard.

Additionally there are several Leapworms on the first floor.

Post-Daimon there are two Gorecyclops in the first floor courtyard, as well as eight Corrupted Pawns, and two Eliminators and a Golem on the second floor.

Random encounters include Garms, either single pre-Daimon, and three post; as well as a chance to encounter Death once again.
