Dragon's Dogma - Quest Order Warning

11 Replies 8,707 Views Created 12-06-2012

Just a warning to be careful when taking on multiple quests. Some quests will cancel when starting another.

 

I fell foul to this after I'd met a chap in the Castle gardens at night, and he asked me to go look for a lost scroll. I went and took on another quest (involving Mercedes) from the quest giver next to the Dukes throne it cancelled the scroll search quest, autosaving a checkpoint at the same time so when I tried reloading the last checkpoint it loaded to the point immediatley after the quest cancelled.

 

I've lost this quest now (comes up as cancelled in the completed quests screen), others be warned!

hey hey

 

its because they are story related. 

 

Also worth noting that there are many quests that can be easily missed. Mercedes also has a escort quest that can be missed too. I have also missed the witch hunt quest as well as a few others. 

 

its refreshing that an RPG actually has consequences and some degree of dynamisism (is that a real word ?) 

 

the only bad thing about this dynamic approach is that you can miss trophies because of it.  I am in no way a trophy hunter and I despise second playthroughs and the NG+ mechanics but I'd like a full and complete playthrough without the negative effects on trophies. 

 

Id also advise that people should get as many kill [insert monster] quests in their list BEFORE going out on any kind of exploration

Yeah, I've been bitten twice by this little problem....  The game's save system doesn't exactly help either.

I tend to finish side quests before moving the story on, and didn't have a problem (other than I missed some triggers).

I missed the Mercedes escort quest too...i saw it on the noticeboard and didn't accept it as i knew it would trigger the quest immediately...then went on and did another quest with her that unexpectedly ended with her going home. Now the escort quest has gone from the board. Doh!

I do agree that it kinda adds consequences to your actions, but its not very clear and the save system doesn't help. Wonder how many trophies i'm missing out on!

As long as you do one escort quest, and any 50 notice board quests, the notice board quests are disposable as far as trophies are concerned. The total carries across games as well, so technically you could do the same one board quest across 50 play throughs for the trophy if you really wanted.

For the witch hunt quest the trigger is random I think, I unlocked because some randomers were talking about an evil witch that controls the dragon in the fountain square in grand soren.

 

 

Atm im looking for more sidequests, also I have a quest called ambush unlocked and have done for awhile it directs me to this general area just across the bridge outside gran soren.

 

Two days ago I went out there and camped all day and all night, eventually in the middle of the night some mercs with a ton of skele soldiers appeared, I killed them the red circle dissapeared but I got no quest completion message and the quest is still listed on my quest list.

 

Does anybody know how I continue this quest? I know the quest started ages ago when I exited for the griffin hunting quest, it gave me a short cutscene where a bunch of what looked like bandits were standing round on a ruined castle gawking at me.

I've done storyline quests since which claimed they would cancel all my quests but this quest didn't cancel so im starting to wonder if its important and its bugging me that I can't get the ambush to happen.

Witch Hunt appears on the notice board I believe - I picked it up there the other night.

 

The ambush quest is pretty vague, but there are 4 ambushes around the place, then when you've done those (in whatever order), you run into a "boss" outside Cassardis...

Ambush 1: Right in front of the Ancient Quarry where you received the quest from Alon to clear it out and open the door. You'll be attacked by various people named after birds (I recall Raven, Hawk, and Condor).

Ambush 2: This is past the far north bridge from Gran Soren. The one that Catacombs Rear Passage 2 is at. You'll be attacked by names like Phantom and Ghost.

Ambush 3: Follow the path back towards the Waycastle and take the top road, as if heading to the Mountain Cottage;. It's a small area to the side with a large tree. You'll be attacked by Darkness.

Ambush 4: Just walk the path between Waycastle and Encampment. You'll be attacked by Rouge and someone else, I forget.

Ambush 5: Literally right at the entrance of Cassardis. You'll be attacked by Zero.

My Nameless Terror Quest got cancelled :/

 

I fought Zero and the quest never completed but sat idle.   After the dragon slaying it cancelled. 

 

Another small tip is that if you take an escort quest with a more combat based character you effectively get yourswelf another pawn as they always fight alongside you. 

 

Sir Max stayed with me for a few sidequests before I took him home.  :) non combats escorting is a pain in das boot as they rush in and get pwned pretty quick but a good tip there is to setup your port crystal at destination before taking the quest and simply ferrystoning to location.

Escort subjects try and stay near you, so I found they were only tricky if I was trying to use melee. It's easy is you stay back and just fire stuff while your pawns (mine has shield bash and I always hire a warrior with war cry) draw aggro.

This is basically what I do:
In order to gain Discipline I roam around without taking quests and If I took It was 50 war bugle,3 golem kills, 10 geo saurian quests.Like this.Once I went into Man swallowing falls and killed bunch or saurians, 3 skeleton mages and a Cyclops. I unknowingly took a Altar from the box and stored it in Cassardis. When the real quest for Man Swallowing falls came. I could just find 4 altars. It asked me to buy a duplicate Altar from Black Cat shop in Gran soren. I went there, bought the altar and went back to the man outside Man Swallowing Falls. But could not offer him the 5th altar. I searched online a solution and got nothing related to it. But got a hint that I might have taken the altar earlier. So I ran through all rest house and Cassarsdis was the last I visited and I found that green altar which in the note said Quest Item. Then only I was able to finish the quest. I wasted around 3 to 4 hours on it. So everything is related in here. Can't judge whether this dynamicism(??) is good or bad or good for certain limit for rpg. But It has turned me into a more  conscious player. I love this thing though.

Quest items make a special noise when you pick them up, and don't go into generic inventory sections.
