Dungeon is a location in Dragon's Dogma.


"Break any law, and you may find yourself arrested and imprisoned. You can't use items or change equipment in the castle dungeons, with few exceptions."
— In-game description

Located beneath the Duke's Demesne in Gran Soren. Any crimes the Arisen committed in Gran Soren are punished with time in the Dungeon, while pawns aren't allowed access.

There are two exits or entrances to the Dungeon - the official one - from the Duke's Demesne is barred by a gate until the quest Come to Court. A second secret exits leads to the Slums - this must be opened first from the Dungeon side.

There is a sewer exit to the Slums in one of the cells, via a windy passage through a broken wall.

  • Once opened the slums exit remains unlocked until New Game Plus.
  • During An Innocent Man Ansell's cell will have an additional Skeleton Key hidden in a pot.
  • During Post-Game, prior to meeting with the Duke, the secret passage to the slums is blocked by rubble.
    • (Glitch) A Barrel can be used to clip through the rubble, allowing access to the door to the slums. Using this door loads a version Grand Soren prior to Post-Game events.
