Duskmoon Tower is a location in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.


Duskmoon Tower is an area located on Bitterblack Isle, initially accessed from the Garden of Ignominy.

The Duskmoon Tower connects to the Rotunda of Dread, the Ward of Regret, and the Vault of Defiled Truth on the first floor - the door to the vault requires a Void Key to open.


Barroch makes his initial appearance here. He will remain until the Gazer is defeated for the first time (also in New Game Plus).

Using Rancid Bait Meat in Duskmoon Tower will lure a Cursed Dragon.

Pre-Daimon, the Duskmoon Tower is home to Rabbits, Crows and Deer; a few Snakes and Spiders linger near the Rotunda of Dread entrance on the third floor.

Post-Daimon, either a Firedrake accompanied by Hellhounds or a Thunderwyvern with two Gargoyles will spawn. A Cursed Dragon may also randomly appear.

  • Even if a Cursed Dragon appears, Barroch will stoically stand his ground, readily available for the party to change equipment and skill loadouts, purchase healing items, deposit and withdraw items.
  • The in game music at the Duskmoon Tower is very similar to or influenced by the Sanctus hymn from the Christian liturgy.
