Proving Grounds is a location in Dragon's Dogma.

Overview

This large circular chamber is accessed from and beyond the Frontier Caverns. The gate leading to the Proving Grounds chamber is locked until the quest Come to Court, after which the notice board quest Put the Eye Out becomes available.

A chest-containing antechamber is also locked behind a large gate until the quest A Challenge is accepted.

The chamber is always home to Goblins - they replenish their numbers by dropping down at the side of the large chamber. Initially a Cyclops is present, but after the quest A Challenge it is replaced by a Hydra.
