Dragon's Dogma Wiki

Miasmic Haunt is a location in Dragon's Dogma.


The Miasmic Haunt is a large swamp in the Barta Crags region. Some citizens of Gransys seem to also refer to the region by the term the Fetor.

Treading through the Miasmic Haunt's swampy waters during the day can inflict the debilitations BlindnessSilence and Poison, but won't drench. At night the presence of glowing fireflies appears to nullify (or somehow relate to) the effect of the poisonous waters.

For loot, see Barta Crags § Loot.


A number of people wish to be escorted to a small island in the larger swamp.

For a route and guidance, see Escort Quest Walkthroughs § Miasmic Haunt.

Pawn Chatter[]

"The fetor that corrupts this place at least offers unique materials for harvest."
"Have you noticed the fireflies neutralize the poison of the marsh by night?" (at night)
"Signs of a camp, out here...?" (around the southern campsite)


  • Traveling here or hereabout at night may be necessary for area knowledge stars for Gransys.
  • The term fetor is used by Ser Tedrick during Deny Salvation : "Lucky thing I wasn't posted to the Greatwall. I'm glad to hear tell of that mess from a safe distance. The Greatwall's near the Fetor, too."; and in the posting for the quest Swamp Things : "The saurians grow ever wilder in the noisome swamplands known as the Fetor, west of the Capital" - the quest mentions both Saurians and Phantasms - both likely to be experienced around the swamp.
    • It may be that the term refers more generally to unihabited areas west of Gransys including the ruined duchy of Liore.
  • Caution! The debilitating properties of the swamp are not mitigated by resistances. One will get debilitated even with 100% resistance to BlindnessSilence, and Poison. Howvever the Invigoration of Impervious protects against this effect.
