Bitterblack Isle Harbor is a location in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.


Bitterblack Isle Harbor is the landing point at which Arisen from Gransys alight on the Bitterblack Isle.

It is the start point for the mysterious quest given by Olra to any Arisen who will aid her; Olra can be found on the pier in Cassardis at night after completing Call of the Arisen. The Harbor consists of a pier, with a boat which can take the party back to Gransys by talking to Olra, a Riftstone, a Request Board, and a Resting Bench.

Three paths lead off from the pier - two to each side to initially locked doors, and one main route forward to large double doors leading into the dungeon of the isle.

Within the first room of the insides of Bitterblack Isle Harbor, the Monument of Remembrance can be found - beyond here, doors lead to the Garden of Ignominy.

The second floor is normally accessed on the way out and down from the final part of the Bitterblack interior. Parts can be accessed by jumping from the stone columns on the pier to the separate islet. From the islet Arisen with Levitate or Sunflare may be able to make an extreme jump to the opposite side, and then access the remainder of this upper area.

Striders can use Leaping Stone to launch off the Crates next to Olra to reach the Second Floor.

There is also an ore deposit, and a Macabre Sculpture on one of the pillars over the Portcrystal below.
