Dragon's Dogma Wiki

Bitterblack Armor Lv.3 is an item available in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.


"Armor bearing no maker's mark, blighted by some infernal device."

Purification of these afflicted armor pieces can be undertaken by Olra for 25,000 Rift Crystals.

Level 3 armor generally has Bonus Enhancements, with a variety of beneficial effects, for example they may allow more weight to be carried, give healing or additional protection, amongst other effects.


Found only on Bitterblack Isle. It is very rare Pre-Daimon, only being found in The Fallen City. Post-Daimon it may be found in chests in the Midnight Helix, The Forgotten Hall, The Fallen City, or Bitterblack Sanctum.

It is generally uncommon or rare everywhere, except in Bitterblack Sanctum where it can be found in at least one of the chests, becoming common post-Daimon.

Also dropped by Daimon (first form 100%) or rarely from Death, a Dire Wyvern, or Dire Drake.

  • Though the specific item obtained varies with vocation when purified, the resultant object from a given cursed item will be for a specific part of the body, independent of the actual armor piece obtained.
  • There are two tiers of Lv.3 armor - if purification gives a lower or higher tier, then purification under a different vocation would have given a different armor piece, but of the same quality tier.
