Just became the new owner, but this guide will likely take awhile. The original game already has WT published which might help in the meantime. There are differences in the game though, so be careful.

Happy hunting! smile

This appears to be a bug with some settings, but we should have this figured out. We are not looking for a new owner at this time.

Danger addressed it in the bugs section, it shouldn't repeat anymore.

I don't have an exact time at the moment, but it's more than 50% finished at this point. I'll keep you posted!

Awesome! :) I'm waiting for the walkthrough as well since I read that the Dark Arisen version is different than the original Dragon's Dogma. I have it installed and ready to start for when the walkthrough goes up, so thank you very much for doing this! :)

No problem, and thanks for getting into walkthrough writing yourself! I saw your My Brother Rabbit walkthrough. Very tempted to get the game at some point.

The changes aren't too drastic. But it is much easier to follow this guide rather than the original, since Dark Arisen comes with special items that the old walkthrough doesn't use. You won't hurt yourself by it playing early. But you might have to do a few playthroughs if you miss some quests.

As of now, I'd say I'm about 70% finished. Let me know if you have any questions! smile

Aww, thanks! :) Yeah, I'd always wanted to try one but it seemed such a big commitment, so I was always nervous lol. But when that game came out recently, I thought it was just perfect, as I'm a big point and click fan and really loved this game. :) I hope you do play it sometime! :)

Yeah, I really was going to start this about a month or two ago and just kept delaying it for random quick games that I was trying to get done from the backlog lol. laugh Then I finally went to start it a couple weeks ago for real, and saw the walkthrough in progress! :D I was so happy lol. I have read that there are some changes, including to the fast travel system too, so I think it's worth it to wait until your walkthrough is done. :) I don't want to miss one side quest or something and have to do an entire extra playthrough for it (and knowing my luck, I would do just that lol!). laugh

Yay - 70% done too! I know walkthroughs are so much work, so thank you very much. :) I'll happily wait until you're done, and your steady work/progress on it is greatly appreciated! headspin

Much appreciated! smile I will likely set up an early link for it here in the forum once I'm finished with the story part of the walkthrough. That way everyone can get started with the game while I'm finishing the DLC portion.

That would be awesome! 😄 I'm currently working my way through Zoo Tycoon and it's taking a good while, so no worries lol. Don't feel rushed at all. 🙂 But that would be great for an early link! I'm so excited to start this finally lol. And thank you for doing the DLC too! What perfect timing when I finally want to start this and a walkthrough is being written lol. 😅👏

Just a small update! I'm finishing the Bitterblack Isle pages now. That will leave just the story section left, which has already been started. So definitely about 80% percent through now. I don't want to put a date on it in case I don't make it, but I'm hoping to finish this weekend.

Hoping and will are different. Something probably came up preventing her finishing it that weekend, I'm sure it'll be done soon.

Yep. I had some things come up that prevented me from doing so. I actually ended up adding content to the guide, because I felt like an explanation wasn't exactly enough to prepare new players. However, I am working on it now, and it's almost finished. So there's no reason it wouldn't be submitted this week.

Apologies for not responding! I saw that you were the last person to respond to this thread, so I just assumed this was an old message.

Thanks for the update! I'm thrilled to read it :D

edit: in a trophy-driven playthrough, will it be safe to start the game following your guide right away as plusblished or will i skip something important not yet written?
just to know up until when i should go and wait :D

It's technically safe to start whenever you'd like! However, some quests can be missed, which will void the "Hero" achievement. That means you'll have to replay the story at some point. So it might be better to wait.

Once it's published though, you should be able to jump in immediately. I even added content for equipment, pawns, and a few other things. Can't think of anything that would be missing. Though if you do see something, feel free to let me know! smile
