Endings in Vigil: The Longest Night

 

Nightmare

nightmare-ending-vltn-wiki-guide 

Conditions:

For this ending, Leila fulfills her duty as a Vigilant, only to discover that she has been deceived and her actions have brought ruin. The Nightmare ending can be obtained by starting off with giving all three Cubic Crystals to the Doctor who's in the Asylum. When this happens, the screen will turn red and the credits will roll out fast. You'll be able to save your progress but upon loading the game, you'll return to Maye Town, only to find out that the area is now corrupted and most of the people have turned into monsters.

You can still continue your progress by tracking down the Doctor and fighting him, but by the time you encounter him, he'll be much stronger since he used the crystals to gain access to the seal and absorb the powers of the Scholar of the Sacred Wood. After defeating the Plague Doctor, head to the lowest section and fight the Mad Pale Raven, followed by the Light Devourer in the Dilapidated Nightmare.

Though you defeated the Doctor, he invoked the ritual in advance, sacrificing Daisy to summon the being responsible for The Longest Night. Leila finishes the ritual by activating the altar and butchering the abomination. Ignoring the path back to Maye, she continues forward into the dungeon to find that her quest was based on a lie - the Goddess of Light, once prophesized to return the sun, is revealed to be a cosmic beast which feeds off worlds while radiating sunlight. And Leila has awakened it.

*While the information above is generally correct, your actions with three Cubic Crystals don't lock you out of any ending: you can give them to the Doctor or break the seal and defeat the Scholar of the Sacred Wood and still get any of them. The choice between the Nightmare and A Vigilant endings depends only on the exit portal after the fight with the Light Devourer: the left one gives you the Nightmare ending while the right one gives you A Vigilant ending. And if you break all four seals before touching the main pillar, you'll get the Sisters ending (confirmed on Patch Two).

 

A Vigilant

 the-vigilant-ending-vltn-wiki-guide

 

Conditions:

For this ending, Leila fulfills her duty as a Vigilant but fails to save her sister, Daisy. First, collect all three Cubic Crystals and use them at the Top of the Giant Wood to break the seal where you can find the Scholar of the Sacred Wood. An earthquake then occurs after defeating the boss and you'll notice something weird has happened.

Head back to Maye Town and make sure to speak to everyone first who's taking refuge at the Mill. You'll learn that the monsters are coming from Maye Hall. Proceed to the workshop of Maye Hall and you'll find an entrance that leads to the Upper Underground Hall. You need to work your way to the lower section and confront the Plague Doctor who's part of the cause of the nightmare and the "plague".

Since you've defeated the Scholar of the Sacred Wood, the Plague Doctor won't be able to absorb its power, making it easier to fight him in just one phase. Once you've defeated him, you'll need to fight the Mad Pale Raven who is the guardian that protects the entrance of the Dilapidated Nightmare.

Enter the Dilapidated Nightmare and you'll notice that there are four seals that are around the main pillar in the center. Ignore the four seals and simply touch the glowing pillar that breaks and summons forth the Light Devourer, an entity that has merged itself with Daisy's body and is the main cause of the nightmare. After defeating it, head towards the portal and leave the area to finish the game.

Leila tries to search for Daisy within the entity's body, but is unable to find her. She takes the long path back to Maye Town. As she walks its darkened streets, the fruits of her quest finally blossom; for the first time in centuries, daylight breaks through as the townsfolk open their doors and look in confusion and awe. The townsfolk crowd around the statue of the goddess and praise the sun. The Longest Night literally disintegrates as the mystically-enforced sky burns away to reveal a bright blue sky and a shining golden sun. But as the scene fades to black, tendrils emerge from the sun...

*While the information above is generally correct, your actions with three Cubic Crystals don't lock you out of any ending: you can give them to the Doctor or break the seal and defeat the Scholar of the Sacred Wood and still get any of them. The choice between the Nightmare and A Vigilant endings depends only on the exit portal after the fight with the Light Devourer: the left one gives you the Nightmare ending while the right one gives you A Vigilant ending. And if you break all four seals before touching the main pillar, you'll get the Sisters ending (confirmed on Patch Two).

 

Sisters

 true-ending-vtln-wiki-guide

 

Conditions:

This ending is the True Conclusion of the game. We'll find that Leila defies her duty as a Vigilant, not only rescuing Daisy but saving the world from ruin. Before you reach the Top of the Giant Wood, you must collect certain items first. Obtain all three Cubic Crystals by defeating the mentioned bosses above, and collect a total of four heirlooms owned by Daisy.

After you defeat the Plague Doctor and the Mad Pale Raven, proceed to the Dilapidated Nightmare. Since you have all four of Daisy's heirlooms, touch the four seals that surround the main pillar at the center to break the main insignia that has Daisy trapped within the entity. After breaking all four seals, touch the main pillar to summon forth the entity. Breaking all four seals will also give you an advantage when fighting the Light Devourer; Daisy will occasionally fight back, causing a hologram of her face to appear as a mask over the beast's head and stunning it.

Leila is able to autopsy the beast and recover an unconscious Daisy, and takes the slow path back to Maye Town. Bodies litter the streets as workers cover them in shawls and cremate them at the square. Leila and her sister rest at the foot of the statue of the goddess. Though The Longest Night has been bloody and will last forever, the beings truly responsible for its never-ending horrors have been thwarted, at least for now.

*While the information above is generally correct, your actions with three Cubic Crystals don't lock you out of any ending: you can give them to the Doctor or break the seal and defeat the Scholar of the Sacred Wood and still get any of them. The choice between the Nightmare and A Vigilant endings depends only on the exit portal after the fight with the Light Devourer: the left one gives you the Nightmare ending while the right one gives you A Vigilant ending. And if you break all four seals before touching the main pillar, you'll get the Sisters ending (confirmed on Patch Two).

      Didn't pay attention to the lore much until that world eating tentacle appeared in the ending, lmao. Kinda wish the lore was explored more now.

      From these endings, it seemed like their world was being defended from that sun tentacle (Ending A) and breaking the endless night (Ending B) was pretty much exposing their world to it. While keeping the sister alive (Ending C) kept the night going, maintaining the status quo.

          If you open the door in the three with the cubes too early, the doctor will disappear, and you fail a ton of quests

            If you're going for TRUE ENDING, you MUST defeat the boss while he's down showing Daisy's face.

            If you defeat him while he's standing you will not get the good ending or the achievement.

              You can "view" all endings even if you go for TRUE ENDING.
              I managed to not get the cinematic after destroying all pillars and I could pick which way I want to go (left - views the 1st ending, right - shows 2nd ending). I think I messed with autosave feature a bit and managed to get the cinematic sisters's one (3rd ending) but i didnt touch any key in order nhttps://vigilthelongestnight.wiki.fextralife.com/images/avatar.pngot to break it.

              My tip is - save the game before going for boss and mess with autoload feature after you kill him (save the progress after completing the game on some free save slot as placeholder)

              Hope that helps - I didnt investigate much but I could access portals on left and right anyway ;) gl

                So... i was going for the "Sisters" end... i've done all the things that are listed above but i still have to choose the left portals for ending the game. Probably you have to complete the "errands" quest giving the medicine to Hilda or Sister Maggie to save most of the people in Maye... during my playthrough i've give the medicine to all the citizens but Clay so i've to sell the last one to the man at the Maye Tavern... oh... and i can't do the "By the will of Dephil" trophy because i don't know how to wake Daisy's soul during the boss fight... anyone knows?

                  This guide and what’s happening in the game are completely different for me. Plague doctor after he gave his sermon is nowhere to be found now. Did frozen realm. Janis gave me some stuff but no metallic ocarina. I’ve done the mine quest but dude at the tavern has not giving me an axe and Vincent isn’t home. Other guy says he came back and he’s around here somewhere but he’s nowhere to be found. Just lots of crap going janky with the quests.

                        I did all there was to fullfill "A Vigilant" ending - still got the "Nightmare" one. There's definitely something missing on your list.
