Emphasis is an augment available in Dragon's Dogma.


"Augments the power of magick attacks designed to knock foes down."

Grants an additional 30% to knockdown power when using spells that impart force as a component.


  • Not all spells knockdown. Those that do include Frigor, Comestion, Ingle, and Maelstrom.
  • Some Magick is not improved. This includes :
  • Impact improves knockdown of both spells and physical attacks.
  • The ability to knock down enemies and make them vulnerable is arguably more useful than increasing Magick with an Augment like Attunement (+10% Magick), if faced with an either/or choice.
  • Doesn't seem to affect or improve staggering.
  • Information on the augment's magnitude is sourced from the game's (PC version) data files. It is presumed identical in all other versions of Dark Arisen. Needs confirmation for vanilla edition.
