Introduction
Welcome to Dragons Dogma, an RPG by Capcom with many innovative aspects and features. The game features an online recruitment aspect that allows you to incorporate other gamers characters into your party and have them fight along side you. An intense loot system, weapon and armor upgrading, and challenging enemies will keep you entertained for hours. Overall the game is not too hard and should be no problem getting the full 1k

Playthrough 1
During this playthrough, you should be able to get almost every achievement except one, The Ever Turning Wheel, which requires you to play a second time. You will most likely get The Coin Collector on your second playthrough as well. Concentrate on finishing all quests and 50 notice board quests. Make sure to follow this guide HERE (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=372407) so you dont miss any quests. If you do happen to miss some, however, the progress carries over into NG+. Try building a strong and balanced party as well. Check out the pawn recruitment thread HERE (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=371161) to pick up some really strong pawns. Most of the other achievements will come naturally from gameplay

Playthrough 2
Aside from having to complete this playthrough, this is pretty much a mop up from the first one. If theres any achievements that you had missed, they can easily be obtained in the second playthrough. Once again Ill note: If you had missed any quests from your first playthrough, the progress will carry over to NG+, so you only need to do the quests that you missed and the achievement will pop right after you have completed that quest. Dont worry about failing quests that you already had completed in your first playthrough. As long as they are not related to any quest you still need to do for the Hero achievement, the achievement will unlock upon completing the last of the quests you missed

Conclusion
Overall not a hard 1k at all. As long as you have a balanced party and level up consistently, there should be no problems

If you have any questions, please post in this thread: HERE (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=372547) :and not over XBL

Before starting, read THIS (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=371347) about the games save system


For information on missable quests/The Hero, check out Powerman1469s thread HERE (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=372407)

The following achievements are story related and cant be missed no matter what


It begins
Onward
A new Ally
Getting a Head
The Courier
Writ Large
Come Courting
The Message
Rough Landing

The following are either missable ending achievements or achievements that are obtained after doing a missable achievement


Solitude: Choose not to fight the Dragon - After doing your main quest, the final battle of the main quest is to fight a dragon. You have a choice to either fight or walk away. Choose to not fight, turn around, and walk away. You will see a cutscene, some credits, and then you will be taken to a reload game screen. That is when the achievement will pop. No need to worry about making a backup save; if you choose reload the game starts you right before you make the choice to fight or not

Destiny: Complete the final battle - Same scenario as above, this time fight the dragon. Not really missable but its tandem to the above achievement


The following achievements are all immediately following the completion of the main quest. You will receive an item called the Godsbane. DONT use it yet


Treacherous: Complete A Warm Welcoming quest - This quest begins immediately after fighting the dragon during the main quest. Its impossible not to receive the quest

Freedom: Complete Fathom Deep quest - You receive this quest from Quince after going into Everfall, and you are tasked with finding 20 wakestones. After you find 20 wakestones and hand them in, the achievement unlocks. NOTE: Once you had them in, you cant return to this spot, and there are several achievements associated with fighting bosses in the Everfall, which will be covered further on the guide

From this point on for the endings, make sure you have Godsbane on your person, which you get automatically from completing the main story and beating the dragon. All following endings are events that take place after you complete the Fathom Deep quest and jump down the hole


Servitude: Die during The Final Judgement - Right after you complete the Fathom Deep quest, you will once again jump down that hole and youll end up in another type of world, and soon youll partake in battle. Let him kill you. You will see a cutscene, some credits, and you will be taken to a reload screen, and thats when the achievement pops. Reload and it will take you right back to the beginning of the fight

Peace: Choose not to proceed with The Final Judgement quest - After fighting with the guy above, you will see some more cutscenes and then you will be given another choice. Either proceed straight and continue on with the quest, or turn around and walk away. Choose to turn around and walk away. You will see a cutscene and you will be taken back to Cassadris, in the same clothes that you started the game with. After you get control of your guy, go to the exit gates and you will get a cutscene, some credits, and a reload screen. This is when your achievement will pop. Choose to reload and it will take you right back to before you made the decision

Mercy: Complete The Final Judgement quest - Same as above, this time choose to proceed. You will then walk by some people trying to attack you ( I chose not to attack them back; I just ran. Not sure if thats important or not). After that you will have one last boss battle. Finish it.

Closure: Stab yourself with the Godsbane - After the boss fight above, you will be in a sort of limbo. Go over to the seat and sit down. You will be taken to Cassardis, but you cant interact with anything so just leave through the exit. You will be back in the other world again. Sit down once more and youll be taken to Grand Soren. Once again just leave. Now, your back at the same world again, take out your Godsbane and stab yourself with it. This will start you a new game plus, allowing you to keep all your stats and equipment. The achievement will then pop.


The following achievements have to do with exploration and reaching certain areas


The Tourist: Discover 50 locations
The Vagabond: Discover 100 lacations
The Explorer: Discover 150 locations

If you are going for the three above achievements, coupled with attempting to complete all quests and 50 notice board quests, then the following achievements will unlock without effort


Into Dripstone Cave
Into the Ancient Quarry
Into Soulflayer Canyon
Into the Manse
Into the Frontier Caverns

I would like to exclude Into the Manse and bring it to your attention with some detail, because I actually missed this one on my first playthrough


Into the Manse: Enter the Blighted Manse during the Duchess in Distress quest: This quest becomes available later on in the game, after you have completed the Wyrm Hunt and met the Duke. Aldous will have some tasks for you, and after finishing them, this quest will become available. More specifically, right after the duke lets you into the treasure room. A girl named Mirabelle can be found outside the Dukes castle. Go up and talk to her and she will give you the Duchess in Distress quest. As long as you complete it, Into the Manse is now unmissable.

The following have to do with vocation and pawns


Human resources: switch your vocation - Earliest place to do this is right after entering Gran Soren. Go to the in and talk to the inn keep. Hell have an option to switch vocations for you and your pawn

Inhuman resources: switch your pawns vocation - Read above

The Specialist: Max out one vocation - Each class has 20 main weapon skills, 12 secondary skills, 9 core skills and 7 augments. Buy all of them in one class to earn achievement


Local Recruit: Enlist a pawn not from the rift - Once you get to the Encampment, after creating your pawn, youll notice other pawns walking around the inside of the Encampment. Simply walk up to one and enlist them

Foreign Recruit: Enlist a pawn from the rift - Dont think this one can be missed. Simply recruit a pawn from inside the rift

The Captain: Hire 70 pawns - Inside or outside the rift. Doesnt matter. You can hire and release the same pawn over again 70x if you want. This can be tracked in the History section



The following achievements have to do with items and equipment



The Savior: Use a wakestone to bring someone back to life - Wakestones and wakestone shards are random loot and treasure that can be found everywhere, although they are somewhat less rare for a while. Three shards make a whole. However, one can be purchased from Fournival I believe, in the Nobles Quarters section of Gran Soren. A quest you will come across requires you to have a wakestone anyways, so save it for that quest if you only have one.

The Knave: Obtain a forged item - You can forge items at the Black Cat in Grand Soren. Try to forge either a quest item or something important, because I forged a pie and didnt get the achievement, but when I forged a quest item, I got it

The Artisan: Combine two items together - Simply combine two items together from your inventory. You should be able to get this within 10 minutes of gameplay

Dragon Forged: Enhance any weapon in wyrmfire - After defeating a dragon, your equipment automatically reaches level 4 (only on you, not your pawn). I got this achievement during the last boss fight of the main story line. None the less, its almost unmissable

Well equipped: Obtain 350 pieces of armor and weapons - This is 350 different pieces. Doesnt matter if you loot it or buy it, as long as you didnt have it before, it will count. This is accumulative. Should come over time; great place to do this though is by farming Everfall. This can be tracked in the History section

The Philanthropist: Gave 50 presents - This is referring to the presents you give NPCs, not the gifts you give to online players. Although I could be wrong on that, I know I gave well over 50 gives to online people and didnt get any achievement that way. Simple way: go to Camellias shop in Gran Soren, buy 50 Harspud juices/potions and present them to her.

The Coin Collector: Collect a total of 10,000,000G - This will come naturally, but most likely with two playthroughs. This doesnt have to be on your person at once; its referring to any piece of gold you loot or earn. Once you totaled 10millG through those means, achievement will pop. Great place to farm gold is the Everfall. Also, selling high level weapons that you get from farming is another way to quickly get this one. This can be tracked in the History Log under the Adventure Tab.



The following achievements have to do with defeating enemies



The Veteran: Defeat 3000 enemies - This should come naturally

Headshunter: Defeat a Hydra or Archhydra - Both the Hydra and Archhydra appear post game. The Hydra can be found in the Frontier Caverns and the Archhydra is found in Everfall in the Chamber of Hesitation

Eye Contact: Defeat the Evil Eye - The Evil Eye is found post game in the Everfall in the Chamber of Confusion (and can be farmed for material/loot in the Chamber of Sorrow)

Serpents Bane: Defeat a Drake, Wyrm, and a Wyvern - The Drake is the only one that can be found during the main game, in Devilswood right outside of the Shadow Fort. The Wyrm can be found post game in the Everfalls in the Chamber of Distress, and the Wyvern can be found post game in Bluemoon Mountain

The Messiah: Defeat the Ur-Dragon - The Ur-Dragon can be found post game in the Everfall, as well as in NG+ on the beach in Cassardis. Look for a special port crystal NOTE: The loot drops are not as good as fighting him in the Everfall. Heres a vid I made showing how to get to him

Dragons Dogma How to get to Ur-Dragon HD - YouTube

And his loot drops:

Dragons Dogma Ur-Dragon Fight Loot Drops HD - YouTube
The following achievements have to do with quest completion and misc


The Laborer: Complete 50 board quests - This should come naturally. Alot of them are "Kill X amount of Y" or "Find X amount of Y". These carry over between playthoughs

The Hero: Complete all pre planned, non notice board quests - This requires you to complete all quests and side quests in the game. This can be done in one playthrough with planning. To make sure you dont miss any, go HERE (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=372407). If you happen to miss some on your first playthrough, progress carries over between playthroughs, so on your second playthrough, you only have to do the quests you missed, and after completing the last of the ones you missed, the achievement will unlock

The Escort: Complete a board escort quest - Straight forward; Just accept an escort quest off any board and complete it
The Patron: Help Madeleine open up her shop in Gran Soren - You first encounter Madeleine in Cassardis. Eventually there will be a quest to escort her to the Encampment. Do so and dont let her die (just to be safe). After arriving, she will eventually ask you if she could borrow 1kG to open up a store. Give her the money. After you reach Gran Soren, you will have to do a number of quests before a quest Chasing Shadows becomes available. Complete this quest, sleep at an inn, and return to the same place you ended the quest, and thats where her shop will be. Talk to her and achievement will pop. Ive heard this and that about this achievement not unlocking, or people never gave her money and she still showed up yadda yadda. This IS how you get this achievement. So if you want to not give her that money and sweat it out, thats on you, but Im pretty sure she wont show up if you dont give her that 1k

Affinity and Beyond: Raise a persons affinity to the max - In order to raise an NPCs affinity, you have to either complete quests for them or give them gifts, or a combination or the two. The Absolute easiest way to raise someones affinity is to give them an Arisens Bond, which is obtained by doing the quest The Dragons Tongue. But if not, raising Madeleines affinity is pretty easy. Alls you do is: Escort her, give her the 1k, complete Chasing Shadows and have her open up her shop. Eventually she will disapear and a new quest will become available. During this you: dont rat her out to the gaurds, give her 50k to open up a new shop again. And thats it, as shes leaving to open up her new shop, achievement will pop. This obviously takes place over a long stretch of time

The Queens Regalia: Dress a male party member in womans clothing - Self explanatory. Easiest way to get this is to go to the Black Cat and buy the set of ladies garments. Just equip it and achievement will pop NOTE: Doing this will also get you in to see Ophis for the Secret Admirer quest

The Ever-Turning Wheel: Play through the game a second time - After doing all your main quest and post game stuff, you can start a NG+ with a clean slate by stabbing yourself with the Godsbane. Everything carries over, an its the exact same thing as it was the first time around. Nothing is different except you now can buy port crystals, and can carry more than 1

Thanks! Great guide!

I was a little nevious about hunting down the Ur-Dragon, Wyrm, and Wyvern.

I'm still in a pickle as I did not keep track of the chambers I entered, so it's duck hunt.

15 chambers can't take that long right? :(

Nonetheless a great game, with a great ending.
I hope it turns into a franchise. I'd love to see where they could take it.

Its from finding it in loot and maybe buying it, but Im not sure about buying it though. I would assume. Its accumulative and might take a little grinding if you rushed through the game

thanks much. I just dont feel like getting into that achievement at all dude. Im crossing them off the guide book this time around, so its only a matter of time before I do them all. When I get it, Ill definitely give any advice I can but I dont want the responsibility of writing a guide for it lol


@bigchilly haha yea it takes sometime. Make sure to go in there well prepared and make sure to have a couple ferrystones incase you need to make a quick exit

Thanks for the guide!

The Hero, though.. I feel it's gonna be such a stupid achievement to get in this game and all its missable/time-sensitive-but-you-can't-know quests, auto-save-that-overwrites-your-manual-save... and glitches, of course.

Already screwed myself with that Madeleine ach. (and I guess The Hero too for this playthrough...) during the Chasing Shadows quest, since Julien apprently can see through walls!...
Thought maybe I could retry it, so I went to the inn to let a day pass... auto-save. :mad:

For The Patron quest, I didn't escort her or even speak to her until halfway through the game. She already had her shop open and I accepted the quest to bring her an idol. The achievement unlocked after I accepted the quest.

For clarification, I believe they were asking if you needed to find 350 unique pieces of equipment, or if you could buy (an exaggeration, but you get the point) 350 Stilettos and have the achievement pop.

Btw, THANK YOU for this psuedo-guide. The ending achievements had me confused as all hell, and I was completely lost on how/when you activated NG+ instead of postgame. Great information here!

If you acquire a piece of armor or weapon that you didnt have before, no matter what the means, then it will go up. Thats what the achievement is referring to

I hope its okay to ask some general questions here.. didnt want to start a new thread.

1. I had a bronze Statue, which i gave to a Merchant. I found a silver and a gold one too, but i cant give it to anyone.

2. In the Video above i saw that you are around level 58 und have 8000 hp points. Why the hell do i have 1700 at level 53 (playing as Strider) ? Am i doing something wrong? I mean are there for example consumables which increase your health constantly ?

3. Some Weapons and Armor i found during the End of the Main Quest dont tell me which incredient they need to be upgraded. Is there any Way to find out which one i need, or do i just have to find them to be shown in the Upgrade Menu ?

4. I dont get the Achievement for forging an item at the Black Cat, though i tried several items, most of them quest items as you requested in your guide. Can you remember which one you forged ?


And by the way.. thank you very very much for your help here ins these forums Flip. I really wanted to buy a guide for this one, but the only way for me to get is amazon, and they need 2-4 weeks to deliver.

PS: sorry for my bad english :P

1. Once you hand in a statue, the quest completes itself. There will be another quest to give a statue to another merchant, Madaliene, so you can give the gold or siliver one to her

2. I exploited a potion glitch so I could make the falls. It messes up your stats though when you level up, and it actually makes you weaker so I wouldnt suggest it

3. Unless there already four stars/dragon forged, you can see what ingredients you need by going to a shopkeep that enhances weapons, and choose the item you want to upgrade, and it will always tell you what ingredients you need and how many you have.

4. Try forging a wakestone or ferrystone. Youll get the achievement

No problem dude. Glad I could help

Hmm.. I started the Arousing quest before completing any tasks Aldous gave me. I completed it, but I didn't like the outcome, so I reloaded my game. (Did get the Max affinity trophy.)

Afterwards, I did complete the 2 tasks Aldous gave me and started a new one. I also had the Arousing quest still active, but it got cancelled out after starting the new tasks.

The Patron: Help Madeleine open up her shop in Gran Soren - You first encounter Madeleine in Cassardis. Eventually there will be a quest to escort her to the Encampment. Do so and dont let her die (just to be safe). After arriving, she will eventually ask you if she could borrow 1kG to open up a store. Give her the money. After you reach Gran Soren, you will have to do a number of quests before a quest Chasing Shadows becomes available. Complete this quest, sleep at an inn, and return to the same place you ended the quest, and thats where her shop will be. Talk to her and achievement will pop. Ive heard this and that about this achievement not unlocking, or people never gave her money and she still showed up yadda yadda. This IS how you get this achievement. So if you want to not give her that money and sweat it out, thats on you, but Im pretty sure she wont show up if you dont give her that 1k

i escort her and give her 1k then i finish chsing shadows quest. then i go to inn and rest, after that i go talk to her but no achievement unlock. what do i did wrong?

The Patron: Help Madeleine open up her shop in Gran Soren - You first encounter Madeleine in Cassardis. Eventually there will be a quest to escort her to the Encampment. Do so and dont let her die (just to be safe). After arriving, she will eventually ask you if she could borrow 1kG to open up a store. Give her the money. After you reach Gran Soren, you will have to do a number of quests before a quest Chasing Shadows becomes available. Complete this quest, sleep at an inn, and return to the same place you ended the quest, and thats where her shop will be. Talk to her and achievement will pop.

You don't have to do the escort mission or give her money, I got it just by going in her shop and talking to her. I had already done the shadow mission before I even seen her for the first time and did not see her in the first town.

I did it this way as well. Make sure to make a manual save prior to opening the Chest because a shard is a random item. It took me three tries before I received a shard and thus the achievement.

For the chasing shadows quest julien disappeared when he went near the abandoned house. The quest marker is there but he reappeared across the river and I can speak to him normally. The quest is still active but he wont move and if I leave the city I fail it. Any help?

I may be wrong here, but on my second and third playthroughs, i've noticed some quests with extremely high rewards appearing. For instance, I did one to slay 25 Saurians and it gave me 500,000 gold and this quest was from Cassardis before even going to Gran Soren! Checking for these quests would make getting to 10,000,000 ALOT faster.
Then again, I may have just missed them on my first playthrough.

I recognized this too on my first NG+, and im pretty sure that i didnt get this quest the first time. Well at least not that early and not with that amount of reward. Best place to "farm" the gold achievement is the post game area though.

True, they would be usefull for those just starting a new game plus though. Killing 10 Chimeras for 750,000 is easy if you have the Dragons Tooth, just upgrade intomidable slash(I think that's the move) and you can pretty much one hit them. Although if you wait for the everfall, you can fight two Chimeras at once, pretty sure the quest will stay untill then :)

I think you can do across multiple playthroughs, since all the other achievements carry over so I don't see why this one wouldnt to.

"The Knave: Obtain a forged item - You can forge items at the Black Cat in Grand Soren. Try to forge either a quest item or something important, because I forged a pie and didnt get the achievement, but when I forged a quest item, I got it."

I found a forged (check item details) wake shard in a chest on top of the Blackcat store. Find your way to the rooftops and there is an open door to a room with a chest inside. (I guess this post is for people who can't see the video above which has no written details. Couldn't see it myself when I posted.) Does anyone know if it will complete a full stone & be usable?

However, that does not help with his problem. BUT, i found a solution.

Draw your weapon and beat the shit out of her. A guard will arrest you. Escape the prison (pay 5000g) then visit her again. And "plop".

unfortunately, the forged wakestone shard found atop the Black Cat connot be used to create a full wakestone. kinda dissappointing, but i guess it makes sense.

This is almost an unmissable achievement if you beat the boss. I wouldnt sweat this one at all

This is not good advice at all. Everybody seems to have a different story with this achievement but that one is not the majority. That wouldnt even make sense seeing the achievement says help her open up her shop, and by your method you literally didnt help her at all. Im not saying you didnt get the achievement doing it that way, Im just saying thats super risky for anyone else to do it that way. If you just do what the guide says, you have almost a 100% chance of getting the achievement

I don't know if anyone else knows this or not (I didn't see it listed) but this could help a little bit towards the money achievement.

There's an ability called 'sausion' that the sorcerer vocation can learn at level two. It basically gives you more gold for the items that you sell, 1.15 times more. Is it a lot? No, but it's better than nothing.

Not only that, the ability can be put on every pawn, and it works for each one, meaning if everyone had that ability, you could make this achievement come a little quicker.

Quick question about the Patron achievement, I did exactly what you described to do and she is exactly where you said she would be, but when I talk to her, she just tries to sell me things, but no achievement. She glows pink for some reason, and the house is still labled as abandoned, am I missing something, or is this glitched?

The building that she is in has to be set up to look like a shop. At first, it's doesn't have much in it, and she still sells you stuff. Once she's behind a counter, and the stop looks like it has stuff in it, then the achievement will pop when you talk to her.

So should I just keep doing quests?, is there a point of no return?

It will happen after time advances in the game. So you can just screw around for a few days and do no quests, and she will be set up. Just keep checking back after a few days pass.

Don't mean to sound like an ass, but do you actually consider this finished?

Perhaps the rules have changed recently, but it's always been my understanding that this site requires more for their guides than what you've added so far, particularly if you want it published as the main guide. They ask for all achievements to have the necessary achievement picture attached, for each achievement to be listed individually with its own description, even if it's just 'see achievement X for details), and for the achievements to be presented in the order they are listed on the site. Even the roadmap has a specific set up that you are required to follow.

I know this sounds like I'm coming across shitty, and I apologize for that, it's not my intention, I mean it as a friendly FYI just incase you were unaware of the sites expectations, so you can add the polish the site requires. The work you've put in so far is excellent, not taking that away from you, but it does still require final touches to be ready for the main site.

Put it to you this way, do you really want someone else being published to the main site after all your hard work just because your guide didn't get the final touch up it needed to be ready?

no i know where your coming from. I went to add the pictures and its going to come out to more pages than I have reserved. Thats why I havent done it yet. I have to figure out how to do it so I can fit it all into the pages that I have. But regardless, my main objective in making this guide was to lay down all the achievements as clear as possible so that people would have no problem getting them. Whether or not it makes the main achievement guide is irrelevant to me.

Treacherous: Complete A Warm Welcoming quest - This quest begins immediately after fighting the dragon during the main quest. Its impossible not to receive the quest

Well, I don't know why, but I did NOT get the achievement for doing the Warm Welcome quest.

Edit: Just got it. Apparently I had to land on a specific platform in order to get the achievement, not just have the quest complete.

Edit 2: Just wanted to say that this guide is great, and was very helpful. Sadly I won't be getting the 1000, because I can't beat Ur-dragon online or offline.

Y'know, I'm pretty sure the damage done to the Ur-Dragon offline carries over, even if you're killed. You might want to check that out, means you can just keep going back to finish him off.

I always think it, but I'm just going to say it now. This guide is how all guides should be. It tells you how to get each achievement in the order you would get them when playing. I always hated how in others guide they make you show each achievement as they are listed on the site.

I find it much easier in this way, that you can pretty much just read it from A to B and get all 1000 G in the easiest way without missing anything.

Hey guys. I just reached the end of the game where you fight the Seneschal. I've been using the official guide and I think it might have just screwed me out of the Servitude achievement. The guide says that after choosing to walk away and getting the Peace achievement, you can select retry to get the Servitude one. The Servitude one is for letting the seneschal kill you. Well, I think that is incorrect. You are supposed to get the Servitude achievement before the Peace one. When you get to the point where you can choose to walk away or fight the seneschal, it's too late to get Servitude. You get the Servitude one for letting him kill you in the first encounter you have with him (before you are in the long tunnel with the NPCs attacking you). I went ahead and killed him, now it looks like I can't get the achievement unless I start a new game. Btw this is a problem with the official guide, not Flip's. Flip's guide poos on the official one and I wish I had followed his instead.

Edit: Never mind. I was able to get the Servitude achievement. This guide is still better than the official one, though.
