The Gold Dragon Mythic Path is obtained much later in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous‘ campaign. However, the requirements, funnily enough, need to be met earlier. If you mess up, or if you’re unable to acquire certain items, you might be locked out completely. Here’s our Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous guide to help you unlock the Gold Dragon Mythic Path.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous – How to unlock the Gold Dragon Mythic Path
The Gold Dragon Mythic Path is one that will be available later in your campaign, and you can select it once you reach Mythic Rank 8. However, you need to complete certain steps.
First, during the prologue (while you’re in the Underground Cave), make sure you loot Terendelev’s Scales. There are two of these near where you’d find Seelah and Camellia. These items appear under the usable/consumable tab in your inventory, so avoid using them at all costs.
Then, in Act I, meet the Storyteller in Blackwing Library. He’ll go to Defender’s Rest, and you can ask him about Terendelev’s Scales. This gives you a quest called The Dragon’s Fate.
Next, go to Leper’s Smile and enter the cave. Get Terendelev’s Claw from a destroyed wagon.
Continue onward until you capture the citadel of Drezen. At the start of Act III, make your way to the Half Measure Tavern in Drezen and recruit a companion named Greybor. This allows you to progress with The Dragon Hunt quest.
Eventually, you’ll chase the dragon until you reach the Artisan’s Tower. You’ll see the Storyteller again in this location, so give him Terendelev’s Claw. Doing this unlocks Terendelev’s Lair.
Inside Terendelev’s Lair, defeat all the enemies. There’s a mysterious man named Hal who tells you to spare the cultist in the chamber. Do as he says, and he’ll reveal himself as the Gold Dragon Halaseliax. If you attack the cultist, you’ll be locked out of this option completely.
Much later in Act IV (just before you hit Mythic Rank 8), you’ll encounter Hal once more. Don’t attack him. Instead, just pick the friendly options to unlock the Gold Dragon Mythic Path. This is a powerful option that boosts your stats considerably, and you can even turn into an actual dragon. For role-playing purposes, this one is great for Paladins/Stalwart Defenders who like to pick good/lawful options.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is available via Steam.
