By   /   3 years ago

Capcom has released a change log which contains all the changes the developer has made to upcoming Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen. The game features the same world as that of the first game but with the inclusion of an entire island bursting with new content.

Player
-Various attacks and skills for all weapons have been rebalanced for all weapons.

Enemies
-Made the Ur-Dragon corpse’s collision boundary smaller so players can now pick up drop items more easily.
-Undead enemies will now come out of the ground with higher defense stats (super armor mode).
-When Saurians die after being knocked down, they will now use a special death animation for when they are on the ground.
-Goblin Shamans will appear in the Witchwood.
-Eliminators will appear on the Tainted Mountain.
-Pyre Saurians will appear on the Tainted Mountain.
-Golden Knights and Silver Knights will appear in the Everfall (before the destruction of Gran Soren).

-Wyrms (strong type) will appear at the Watergod’s Altar.
-Drakes (strong type) will appear in the Everfall after the destruction of Gran Soren.

Pawns
-Adjusted how often pawns will talk by spacing out less important lines; in effect, making them seem to talk less.
-Adjusted and balanced the equipment and skills of all of the high-level pawns that are available to a player when they’re playing offline.
-Adjusted how much it costs to hire a pawn that is higher-leveled than yourself down to a more realistic scale.
-Added a Monthly ranking to the pawn’s Top Ranked section.

NPCs
-You will not gain Affinity with Assalam simply by talking to him anymore.

-Dramatically increased base stats for 12 weapons obtainable by defeating the Dragon.
-Improved base stats for 10 Magick Bows

World
-A Portcrystal that allows players to return to Cassardis has been added just outside Cassardis’s gate
