The Bloodless Stockade is a location in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.


The Bloodless Stockade is an area in the labyrinth of Bitterblack Isle. It is accessed through The Forgotten Hall and has entrances to Sparyard of Scant Mercy and the Arisen's Refuge.

Much of the lower area consists of water filled sewers. Bring a lantern or spend 300 Rift Crystals each to light the Beacons as the underground area is pitch dark.


Initially Death will be encountered in this area, often in the sewers. An Eliminator can be found near the Arisen's Refuge. Other foes include Spiders, Leapworms, Poisoned Undead, Corrupted Pawns, Specters, Wight, Cyclops, Wraiths, and Phantoms.

Post-Daimon the area becomes more dangerous due to the additional presence of two Living Armors, some Vile Eyes, and two Gorecyclops.

An additional hazard is the random appearance of an Elder Ogre which may happen at any time.


For possible chest loot refer to map and table below.

A Macabre Sculpture can be found here on the second floor, and a Moonbeam Gem in the underground sewer level. Pyrepipe and Nightfall Cresset grow here. Additional gatherable items include a Wakestone or Wakestone Shard, Jewel of Summoning, Monk's Periapt, Bitterblack Novelty Lv.1, Drop of Deliverance and various amounts of Rift Crystals.

Bloodless hole

Shortcut to the lower sewers

  • On the second floor near is a hole in the wall which leads down to the watery sewer area of The Bloodless Stockade. Jump or levitate carefully across the Brine-infested water to reach the hole. This shortcut is useful for bypassing enemies to run for the exit to the Sparyard of Scant Mercy. Be aware that this shortcut drop can inflict fall damage on the way down, and Death may be lying in wait at the end of that drop.
  • Death can dispatched here in relative safety by a Magick Archer with Ricochet Hunter - for more details see Death
