The Black Cat is a location in Dragon's Dogma.


"Hmm... This shop bears a rather unwholesome look to it..." Pawn


Overview

See also: Forgery

The Black Cat is run by Mountebank and deals in rare goods that cannot be found in normal shops. Mountebank will also offer his opinion on the state of the Dukedom and Duke from time to time.

The shop itself is found in a side passage deep within the Venery in Gran Soren. After the cataclysm of the The Final Battle Mountebank relocates, offering his services from behind the remains of Arsmith's Alehouse.

Several services and goods are offered here: firstly, Montebank carries a limited range of goods like Ferrystones, and later Portcrystals and also sells items useful for upgrading Rusted Weapons.

Additionally he sells copies of some rare weapons including Golden Weapons, though such items need to have been obtained through their respective quests first before their copies become available. Special suits of armor and clothing (generally copies of DLC items) can also be purchased from Mountebank.

The Black Cat provides a counterfeiting service producing forgeries of most items for a fee. This is most useful to duplicate materials needed to enhance armor and weapons. Mundane items and scripts can be perfectly forged, whilst items with magickal powers cannot, or produce replicas similar only in appearance, not function. For details, see: Forgery.

Finally the shop is the place to go when an important Quest Item was lost in some way - most misplaced quest items will turn up here in one form or another.

The sign above The Black Cat reads "Counterfeit Shop" in the Gransys alphabet.

Notes

  • There is a chest in the attic roof above the shop (see Rooftop) - it contains a Wakestone Shard Forgery, Panacea or Seeker's Token.
  • With Dark Arisen, the cost of Forgeries have increased by 50%.
  • ps3Ps3 x256px, xbox360360 x256px. Owing to a (BUG) that unlocks a shopkeepers entire inventory in New Game Plus, The Black Cat can stock all available Golden weapons irrespective of whether the prerequisite quests were completed.

The Black Cat Sign

There is a largish poster within the Black Cat that appears to have a text written in the Gransys alphabet. The first line is "capcom", and the second begins "dragonsdogma" - the rest of the text is in romanized Japanese.

Too realistic

To say that
It is not an exaggeration

Such a Tale!
