Dragon's Dogma Wiki

The Absent Apprentice is a quest available in Dragon's Dogma.


"Seems like youth of today have no desire for the life of a weapons merchant. In a perfect world, I'd have an apprentice to run my errands, and in truth, I've had more than a few. Sadly, their skill at metalwork rarely transfers to skill at staying alive in the field."

The Absent Apprentice is the name of two different quests - both require the killing of a number of harmless fauna.




The Absent Apprentice (Crow quest walkthrough)

There are 11 Crows in The Abbey vicinity at any given time which immediately re-spawn whenever the Arisen enters and exits the nearby Riftstone, as demonstrated in this video.

  • Pawns will not attack either of these creatures, and so Arisen without a ranged attack may find it difficult to catch and kill the crows.
