To trigger the Short-Sighted Ambition Quest in Dragon’s Dogma 2, you need to purchase anything from Isaac’s Wares. The shop owner will give the wrong item and his wife will help him. Isaac proceeds to explain that his eyesight has gotten foggy ever since he started reading a grimoire he found named On the Transference of Souls, which supposedly allows the reader to summon things from beyond the rift. The shop owner wants Arisens to bring him a Quince since it helps relax fatigued eyes.

If you give Isaac On the Transference of Souls 2 grimoire, he leads players to his home where he attempts to do the ritual. At first, nothing seems to be changing, but Isaac soon discovers that both his wife and daughter have turned to ash. As a result, Isaac will close his shop, and you will get the Ring of Disfavor. This can be considered a “bad” ending.

If Arisen wants a “good” ending, give Isaac a replica of the grimoire. This way, when he reads it, nothing happens and his family will stay alive. Since the ritual didn’t work, Isaac will put the first volume of On the Transference of Souls for sale, and you can buy it after a few days in-game to combine it with the second volume. As a result, you will unlock the Celestial Paean spell.
