Takedown is a skill available in Dragon's Dogma.


"An advanced form of base skill that appends a tackle to a forceful jab."

An advanced version of Empale.


  • Hold [Strong Attack] to perform.
  • The second blow appears (from some angles) to be a shield strike (left hand), but is in fact a right handed blow (elbow barge, and back slash) - as such the shield strength and any shield enchantment do not count in the damage given from this skill. Damage is the same even if the shield is unequipped.
