A Guide For Novices

  • Look Everywhere: Hidden treasures exist all over the game. Because of that, look around the corners, rooftops, pillars, mountains, … and you might find something useful.
  • Be Wary Of The Night: Like in the real world, there is a day – night cycle in Dragon’s Dogma. Due to the darkness, you are less potent against enemies at night, especially in the early stages of the game. Therefore, it’s wise to seek refuge and wait for daylight instead of rushing to fight enemies.
  • Pay Attention To Pawn: At the start of the game, you will have the chance to create a Pawn that will be your companion throughout the game. Other players can also add your Pawn to their party and when they do, your odds of survival increase. Also, only your Pawn will level up with you whenever you level up in Dragon’s Dogma. Therefore, feel free to add new Pawns to your party and discard old ones.
  • Complete Quests Quickly: In many other RPG games, players could ignore side quests until they are through with the main story. That being said, in Dragon’s Dogma, side quests are only available for a limited period of time. That is why you have to take care of sidequests immediately as soon as possible.
  • Hold On To The Loot: You will come across many strange items as you play but many of such items will eventually come in handy (quests, gear upgrades, etc). Thus, you should resist your instinct to sell items that don’t have value at a glance. There is more than enough space in the inventory to keep all your loot. Sell your gold instead of other loot when you need some extra cash.
  • Pick Up Items: In the game’s latest edition, players can get their hands on quality items but don’t have to do much. The items include Queen’s Clothing, Vagabond Armor, Eternal Ferrystone and so on. To get the items, you have to go to the Gran Soren and talk to the innkeeper. The items will automatically be added to your storage.
  • Don’t Go To Bitterblack Isle Too Early: At the beginning of the game, you will be asked to play the Bitterblack Isle, part of the Dark Arisen expansion. At that point, you likely cannot handle the enemies in the quest so you should continue through the game instead. Build up your level, gather weapons and get to know the mechanics. You may go to the Bitterblack Isle when you have what it takes to overcome enemies there. 

Where Can I Find Ur-Dragon?

Ur-Dragon will reside in the Chamber of Lament during your first playthrough. However, if you start a new playthrough, you will run into the Ur-Dragon on the beach in the town of Cassardis.

How Do I Get To The Bitterblack Isle?

To reach the Bitterblack Isle, first, you have to install a DLC called Dark Arisen then return to the start of Cassardis. Head to the town, rest in the inn till night and go talk to Olra (a non-playable character on the docks). The Bitterblack Isle will become available once your interaction with Olra concludes.

Is It Possible To Change Vocations In Dragon’s Dogma?

The best time to change your vocation in Dragon’s Dogma is early in the game as you experiment to determine the best style. You have to be in the inn at Gran Soren to change your vocation.

Which Vocation Is The Best In The Game?

It all comes down to style but according to popular opinion, the Assassin is a solid vocation by all accounts.
