Completed all pre-planned, non-notice board quests.

It’s strongly recommended that all pre-planned quests are started after completing the game the first time.

The List

Human Resources

Simply change your vocation at the Union Inn at Gran Soren.

dragons-dogma-trophy-guide-roadmap-silver

The Veteran

Killed over 3,000 enemies.

This trophy is not too hard to attain, however patience is required in order to kill this many enemies. The amount of kills does not change once the game is completed and restarted, so it rolls over to New Game Plus

Local Recruit

Directly enlisted a pawn to your party

Enlisting a pawn on a local is not hard to do as you can find pawns that dwell throughout the world. However a well populated location to hire local pawns is near the Pawn Guild at Gran Soren. Simply walk up to a pawn and recruit

dragons-dogma-trophy-guide-roadmap-silver

Foreign Recruit

Enlisted a pawn from beyond the rift to your party.

Simply enlist a pawn into your party using a riftstone to access a wider range of pawns.

dragons-dogma-trophy-guide-roadmap-silver

The Captain

Enlisted a large number of pawns.

Enlist at least 70 pawns into your party. You can do this locally or via riftstone. You can also enlist the same pawn multiple times into your party and it will still count towards the amount of pawns enlisted. It is recommended you do this in offline mode to bypass the gifting and rating sections.

dragons-dogma-trophy-guide-roadmap-silver

Inhuman Resources

Changed the vocation of your main pawn.

Simply change the vocation of your main pawn at the Union Inn found within Gran Soren.

The Savior

Used a wakestone to restore the dead to life.

There are two ways to go about doing this. One is by completing the mission Reaper’s Scorn or by using a wakestone when a NPC is killed or on yourself when you have been killed. Wakestones are commonly found within the Everfall (post game area) and can also be created upon finding three wakestone shards on the normal landscape.

dragons-dogma-trophy-guide-roadmap-silver

The Knave

Obtained a forgery.

A simple trophy, all that needs to be done is to give an item that is considered ‘rare’ to the NPC at the Black Cat. Another way of doing this is by going onto the rooftop of the Black Cat; here you should be able to find a chest with a forged wakestone shard. Picking up this shard should earn the trophy.

dragons-dogma-trophy-guide-roadmap-silver

The Craftsman

Combined two materials to make an item.

A relatively easy trophy to earn, just find two items that can be combined together and combine them. A list of items can be found on this page.

dragons-dogma-trophy-guide-roadmap-silver

Well Equiped

Obtained 350 total pieces of weapons and armor.

This trophy takes a while to achieve as there are quite a few pieces of rare armor and weapons. The recommended approach to this trophy is to buy all pieces of equipment and weapons from each vendor found within the world, completing notice board and pre-planned quests, and defeating or participating in fighting the Ur-Dragon. A full list of weapons can be found here while a full list of armor can be found here. You should keep note of what you have had so you can sell items and recover some cash to reinvest in new ones that count for the trophy.

A Queen’s Regalia

Dress a male member of your party in a dress.

Simply recruit a male member of the party, after this go to the Black Cat found in Gran Soren and buy Lady’s Garb, once the garb has been bought equip it to the male pawn. For more information about this trophy visit here.

dragons-dogma-trophy-guide-roadmap-bronze

Affinity and Beyond

Raised a person’s affinity to maximum.

An easy way to complete this is simply to complete all of the missions that pertain to the NPC Aelinore. You will first be able to do this when a cutscene points to her in the mission Come to Court. Continue to complete both Arousing Suspicion and Duchess in Distress, keeping her alive in both, and she will develop a max affinity for you. It is also easy to obtain highest affinity with Madeleine if you complete the quests to help her open her shop and later on skip town.

Into the Ancient Quarry

Enter into the Ancient Quarry.

There are two ways to enter into the quarry, one of which is through the southern entrance and the other through the northern entrance. It is recommended to enter through the northern entrance however as you will be asked to complete the mission Of Merchants and Monsters after this mission’s completion this area will become a non-hostile area where your stamina will not deplete. It is also an important shortcut connecting regions that you will use for escort missions.

The Coin Collector

Earned a total of 10,000,000 G.

Two highly recommended ways to do go about doing this easily is to use the ‘Suasion’ skill when selling items and by using the wakestones that are dropped within the Everfall and selling them. Note: You do not need to have 10,000,000 G on you to earn the achievement. The way the trophy is earned is through your lifetime earnings within the game, so buying and reselling gear is an option.

The Patron

Helped Madeleine open her shop.

This trophy is a rather complex one that can easily be missed. After completing the mission Upon a Pawn head back to the inn at Cassardis, here you can be assigned a mission by the NPC Madeleine.

After the completion of two missions, A Matter of Myrmidons and Lure of the Abyss, an NPC named ‘Mason’ will offer you a quest named Chasing Shadows. Once this quest is completed talk to Madeleine.

Defeated a drake, wyrm, and wyvern.

This can only be attained in post-game. The drake is one of the only dragon kin that can be found post-game, if you simply progress through the story finding it should be easy as it is found close to the Shadow Fort other locations where the drake can be found are the Estan Plains, Conqueror’s Sanctuary, and in the Chamber of Fate within the Everfall. There are two wyrms found throughout the game with one being found at the end of the Watergod’s Altar in post-game and the other can be found within the Chamber of Distress in the Everfall. There are also two wyverns found within the game with one being found on conquest road and the other at the end of Bluemoon Tower both in post-game. For more information on these creatures visit: Drake, Wyrm, Wyvern.

The Messiah

Defeated the Ur-Dragon.

This is only available in post-game within the everfall. Due to the nature of the online Ur-Dragon fight it is highly recommended that you fight the Ur-Dragon offline due to the large health pool it will probably have. However if approaching this online it is recommended to fight it when it has considerably low health and to use the Maker’s Finger when fighting it.

dragons-dogma-trophy-guide-roadmap-silver

Dragon Forged

Strengthened equipment in Wyrmfire.

Whenever you defeat dragon-kind, there is a chance that your equipment will become dragon-forged. There are multiple ways to go about doing this. One of the most preferred is killing the dragon in the quest Final Battle as there are no armor requirements for the upgrade. However a full guide to dragonforging weapons and armor can be found here.

The Specialist

Learned all of the skills of a single vocation.

Depending on the vocation being used this can be attained on the first playthrough as long as you keep your vocation the same either at the start of the game or as soon as you change it within Gran Soren.

    Perhaps add that ‘The Hero’ can be acquired over multiple playthroughs on the same save file. If you fail to get it on your first try you need only do the sidequests you missed on subsequent runs.

    1. Hart says:

      Also, great guide BTW Grin. My first post seems kind of critical come to think of it >_>

  2. GrinTwist says:

    Eh criticism is always needed. Frankly, the reason why I didn’t put it down for that trophy is that it’s much easier for players to do the quests in one go rather than in multiple so they don’t get confused as to which ones they completed and which ones they didn’t.
