Dragons Dogma - Tips For New Players

Steam war strategy gamescan i mod games on steam deck DRAGONS DOGMA: DARK ARISEN whats up YouTube and welcome to this instructional video of a truly spectacular game Dragons Dogma if you are watching this guide you know that this game has been compared to Dark Souls and difficulty and if probably but just bought the game in curiosity you are wondering is this game going to leave me with nothing at the beginning are there hidden elements to this game I wish I knew before I played the first time yes and no Dragons Dogma is a game that attempts to strike a balance between skill and gear unlike Dark Souls which is primarily skill based and also unlike Skyrim which is primarily gear based this means that yes there are best weapons and no you cant take any weapon and make it amazing like in Dark Souls every weapon class has a best but the game is not designed to require the best gear to overcome an obstacle this is where the skill portion of the game comes into play this healthy balance between skill and equipment makes the game feel just right and the same can be said for the armor in the game people may tell you differently but having crappy armor is the first step in getting one shotted Dragons Dogma has an upgrade system that consists of three stages or stars as theyre displayed in game a unique thing about this games upgrade system is you do not need the upgrades for every stage to upgrade to the final or second stage for example a one-star upgrade could cause say to a got a but the three-star upgrade could cost one rugged tusk if you have the tusks you could skip the other stages and go right to three this makes upgrading your gear painless and fun another tip Ill give you about the upgrade system is to deposit absolutely everything in the materials tab of your inventory into the materials tab in the in upgrading in this game does not require you to have the materials on you so this can free up a ton of space for other items another cool thing managing your items that the innkeeper can do is combine items combining items is very helpful and quite fun at the beginning of the game potentially giving you access to high-quality consumables early on I encourage you to experiment with this now onto leveling leveling and Dragons Dogma has a more profound effect than one would expect since the player character is able to pick any of the nine classes and switch casually between them they should be able to always play what they want when they want correct wrong when they gain a level you gain the stats of theyll cost you level does leveling from 1 to 10 grants the most stats 10 to 100 the second-most and 100 to 200 gives the least amount of stat gains this means that someone who plays as say a ranger who has high stamina and physical damage for the entirety of their time would have a very hard time if not impossible time switching to a magic class like say a sorcerer because of the system many different builds and specs have arisen to optimize your character so it can do what you want it to do there are even some builds out there that let you play all the classes effectively however you will not be able to excel in one area for more information on step gains and building a balanced character check the link in I put in the description to the wiki page on stat gains if you need more of a hands-on approach ask away on the game fa Qs forum these guys were always around to help me when I started and they will hopefully be there for you too however I do encourage you to play the game as you would like to play it and not follow a path set out for you by someone else glass and Dragons dog will fall into three categories main story quests which alter other quests and locations in the game and of course advance the main plot then there are side quests which make up for the rest of the story driven questing and then there are noticeboard quests noticeboard quests are special and that they do not need to be handed to the corresponding quest giver to complete the quest it has Auto handed in as soon as you finish it this makes for much less backtracking back and forth in towns and cities as most of the quests are meant to be completed while you complete other quests there are a total of 6 notice boards and Dragons Dogma one in casa de s-- one at the encampment one at the inn and grand soren one in the Ale House in Grand Sauron and two in the pond killed one upstairs and the other down I encourage you to grab most if not all of these side quests whenever you buy them many quests and dragons dog would do more than just advance the story to regulate which side and noticeboard quests are available to at the time be sure to always look around in the world for quests whenever you advance the main story as most quests are hidden and will not appear on your map prior to picking them up the last thing I want to touch on is the pond system your ponds behavior is governed by two inclinations that are set by the player these can be set by answering a series of questions in a knowledge chair which can be found inside any in personally I find a damage-dealing pond that any combination of skater Challenger and mitigator makes for a very active and helpful pond for a healer pond utilitarian and mendicancy me the most effective choice resting in an inn while an online mode will upload your pond to the server to be rented while simultaneously downloading anything if you already had your pond on the server be sure to rest it in at least once every time you play as you can get cool rewards from other people renting your pond well thats all I have for today folks I hope Ive cleared up any confusion you may have when getting into this amazing game and if you have any questions feel free to ask me in the
