HR 144 in MHW and around 260 hours
Nothing to real strive for anymore
Notice that Dragon's Dogma has a promotion on steam
Always seen people praising the fuck out of this game here on Cred Forums so decide to give it a try until MHW's DLC
Bloody fucking hell Cred Forums, I should have listened to you guys.
It's such a goddamn good game, I'm still pretty lost in many thing (I think I just unlocked an anchor like teleportation system in the underground part of the pawn guild in the capital?) but I'm having a blast so far.

Is there anything important I should know? Maybe Mods I should use?
Also should I finish completely my Fighter progression before switching to Warrior?

Can you play this shit solo? I fucking hate having to drag an AI around.

Kevin Cooper

I don't think so, you're forced to have at least 1 AI with you as far as I noticed, but you can completely ignore them or turn them into healing/gathering bots.

You can there's even a skill of sorts that gives benefits if you go around solo.

Huh, I have a similar initial story but complete different outcome
I also love MHW (been playing since 2G) and got DD this sale
The game was quite underwhelming for me. The gameplay is fun; mounting, the abilities, the classes, there's quite a lot of variety in playstyles, which is super cool. Problem is the questing sucks, enemy variety is not really there, the world is uninteresting and the story so far is boring/uninspired

I really wanted to like the game since Cred Forums sucks its shlong almost all the time but so far the game is a compendium of good ideas poorly executed

If you don't complete this bullshit side quest before doing the pawn's guild quest, you're locked out of a certain area and several quests relating to it. See this loli? No quests for her.

As early as you are in the game, I would probably restart. I did the same thing so I know how you feel; just rush through the story content until you get to Gran Soren again.

Ethan Thompson
Ethan Thompson

Oh wait Anons, I did this quest!
I made sure to do any quest I would see!

Robert Myers
Robert Myers

OP, show us your loli pawn.

James Howard
James Howard

And you returned to Casardis to complete it?
If so, you're safe. This is the only one that a lot of people miss out on. The other missable quests are a bit harder to miss, so as long as you don't rush story content you'll be fine.

Another thing to keep in mind: Later on, vendors in Gran Soren will ask for a bronze, silver or gold idol. Their stock will change depending on which idol you give them. The only way to get the Gold Idol is by escorting completing a quest in a very specific way, so make sure you pay attention to this when you get around to it. dragonsdogma.wikia.com/wiki/Escort_Duty

I dislike using guides but I -kinda- used one on DD to not miss shit
Check Dragon's Dogma Wikia's quest page: it outlines the story stages and the quests that are dependant on them. Just check when does the stage ends, and do normal questing. When you think you're done with a certain stage, check if you're missing any of those stage-dependant quests and do them if any

Cameron Ortiz
Cameron Ortiz

Here you go.

I'll keep that in mind, thank you Anons!

Also about my profession question in the OP, is it ok if I switch to Warrior before finishing Fighter completely? or will I miss on some things?

You can always come back later if needed. Vocations only influence stat growth and even there it's never that important - gear always triumph. There was a pic that proved this.
Anyway game's forgiving in several ways, change vocation any time you want and have fun

You benefit from leveling all classes. Try them out, stat gains are not a game breaker in DD.

Justin Fisher
Justin Fisher

Never because Dragon's Dogma and Lost Planet were attempts by Capcom to entice Westerners towards Monster Hunter.

Now that Monster Hunter has exploded there's little reason for them to dump resources into Dragon's Dogma. Remember that this game was, prior to RE6, their most expensive game ever. And they even had to cut a ton of content like other areas of the mainland, elves and dwarves, male Griffins, and the fucking MOON.

Must have beat this game from scratch about seven times. Here are some tips for you OP, but be warned some may be things you wished you figured out for yourself:

Cling onto the armored ogre's faces to make them pull off their own helmets
If you are using a vocations that knows instant reset, you can instant reset the animation for putting out and putting back on the lantern, which saves a lot of tediousness when in a dark place where your lantern keeps getting wet
Dump all your crafting materials in the bank, they're heavy as fuck. Out in the field, use your pawns as pack mules for all these materials. When you send a pawn back, everything you gave them except for gear goes back to your bank.
Always keep a pawn with you that knows how to heal and enchant weapons. Fire enchant is the best throughout vanilla, holy enchant is the best for bitterblack isle.
Don't bother giving pawns flasks of oil for their lanterns because they'll throw the oil over enemies and waste it
Go climbing and shit in towns, go all over the rooftops, because there are sacks of coins in places you'd never expect the devs to have cared about
After you beat the griffin boss in the tower, there are shitloads of loot surrounding the perimeter of the room so don't miss it, do two laps to be sure
Picks lots of mushrooms because they give back stamina and can't go rotten
Look up a guide for how to get bronze, silver and golden idols (I think they're called). Each major merchant in the game will give you a quest to give them an idol, and the quality of the idol you give them determines how much their stock will improve.
There's an unused electric gutair version of the boss theme: youtube.com/watch?v=EioUJCiy7_Q

WOLVES HUNT IN PACKS

James Howard

If I gave the Gran Soren weaponsmith a bronze idol already, is it impossible to get better stuff from him from silver/gold? Or can I get that from another merchant later?

Wyatt Wright
Wyatt Wright

Once they have an idol, that's it. You can give those idols to the other merchants.

Parker Campbell
Parker Campbell

Dump all your crafting materials in the bank, they're heavy as fuck. Out in the field, use your pawns as pack mules for all these materials. When you send a pawn back, everything you gave them except for gear goes back to your bank.
Shit, that actually make sense.
My character is at average because of them and I wasn't sure if I should do it or not.
Go climbing and shit in towns, go all over the rooftops, because there are sacks of coins in places you'd never expect the devs to have cared about
I noticed that since the fishing village actually and that make me super fucking happy because I love exploring stuff and getting rewarded for it feels good as fuck.

Thank you for all your advices user!

Landon Barnes
Landon Barnes

tfw everything is a bulletsponge and i dont know what to do

Jack Williams
Jack Williams

Does it matter which merchant gets which idol, or does the idol unlock the same stuff regardless?

Xavier Williams
Xavier Williams

Yeah, that's it for this run. You can try again in new game plus. New game plus is kind of shit though because the enemies don't scale, you just blast through everything. That's why I start a brand new game every time.

Nathan Gutierrez
Nathan Gutierrez

Do not bully
Your arisen looks great

Dominic Garcia
Dominic Garcia

The level of the idol determines how much better their stock of wares is. And it matters which merchant gets the gold, yes. What they unlock differs for each.

Hunter Young
Hunter Young

Get better weapons and/or augments. Also, use periapts when needed.

Daniel Rodriguez
Daniel Rodriguez

When I first played, my character was just doing no damage and it sucked. I think I was playing the basic bitch dagger one, it's been so long I can't remember the names. Started again and didn't have the same problem, though. Here's all the information I can think to give you:

-Did you change vocation early on? Gear is the most important thing later on, but very early in the game, a vocation change from a strength class to a magic class or vice versa will have a noticeably negative impact.
-The bandits are killers early on in the game, if you're struggling with them that's normal. You may also have wandered quite too far for your level.
-There is an ogre or a troll or something in an early quest, the one that takes you beneath the pawn guild. You're not supposed to be able to kill him quickly yet, it takes ages. It's also not uncommon for this enemy to fall to his death, almost as if intended.
-Failing all this, perhaps you haven't purchased the proper abilities and augments expected of you. Make sure to get the augments that just straight up increase your core stat (like clout increases strength, as I recall), and buy attack abilities. Use them more often and see how much of a difference they make.

James Ortiz
James Ortiz

OP here, which merchant should get one then?
Or is gold good on everyone and you need to NG+ to get more gold one?

Luis Lee
Luis Lee

Also yes of course, buy the best weapons available. Look for the accessory called iron nails or iron knuckles or something from the titty whore merchant, it gives you +10 strength and +10 magic which is a big deal early in the game.

James Nguyen
James Nguyen

Thanks, always liked the Drow/Dark Elf look.

Austin Cruz

I meant the weapon/armor smith in Gran Soren. The other user probably knows better, though.

I did a new game + on my warrior just to charge the arc of deliverance before the griffon arrives on the hunting mission so I could one shot at him as he landed, which actually removes the whole tower chase quest.

OP here.
Quick question since I can't check it out right now (I'm on the otherside of the map killing bandits to try to find some spell book for a guy)
Can I pick up all the quest from the wyrm hunt captain guy? or it's only one by one?

David Adams
David Adams

Been playing this for the last week or so and really enjoyed it except for how unforgiving the quest and save systems can be at times.

Would have loved just a few more boss monsters like the chimera/griffin etc for variety, after playing for a while it does get a little samey.

Use an ENB mod to enhance the graphics.

Fighter will reward you with a strength boost augment. Warrior will reward you with an even greater strength augment, but combined your physical damage will be much higher.

Warrior is probably the least fun class, though, just warning you.
Strider/Assassin/Magick Knight/Magick Archer is where it's really at.

Its pretty damn good, but DDON is objectively better in gameplay department as it has more elaborate vocations with more diverse playstyle. Also DDDA is very suspectible to cheese strats. Shit like peripat elemental archer or cannon mystic knight shit on the game far, FAR harder than CB AED/SAED spam from MHW.

Adam Collins

Magic Cannon from Magic Knight maybe

Jose Reyes
Jose Reyes

I agree op. I finally got around to buying it over the winter sale and it's all I've been playing recently. I even made a second steam account and set up family sharing so I could make another pawn
it's not that important even if he missed it. the game is meant to be replayed in new game+ so he'll have another chance to do any quests he missed
I'd say the most important thing is to not be too autistic on your first play through. don't keep checking the wiki. just enjoy exploring the world

Zachary Kelly

Not really. Great Cannon is more like 2hu. A nigh constant stream of small projectiles, so great and blinding that it covers most of the screen.

Maybe now that they got all that cash from MHW and saw for themselves that there is a market for "ARPGs where you learn movesets and bop chunky lads" in the west they will finally localize it.
That would be nice.
