Dragon's Dogma Wiki

The Hero is a trophy/achievement available in Dragons Dogma.


"Completed all pre-planned, non-notice board quests."

Complete all main and secondary quests.

No quests appearing on noticeboards need to be completed - so no Escort Quests, "Fetch Quests", "Monster Hunts", or Badge of Vows quests.

The quests can be completed across multiple playthroughs, so any quests that are missed can be completed in New Game Plus. Only if a quest is marked as "failed" need it be redone.


This simplified walkthrough give the locations and quests that should be done in order to obtain the trophy. This should be achievable in a single playthrough from level 1.

Simple single game walkthrough. Starting at Cassardis:

  1. Do Harbinger of Destruction, Newly Arisen. Complete the side quests Floral Delivery, Lost Faith, and Grim Tidings now.
  2. Next attempt to leave Cassardis, triggering Upon a Pawn. en route Reynard must be saved (from now on every time you see him do business to eventually trigger Search Party)
    1. For future note Search Party will require letters from chests in The Encampment, the Venery (Gran Soren), Soulflayer Canyon, The Ancient Quarry, a camp near Miasmic Haunt, and The Catacombs.
  3. At the encampment do Call of the Arisen, Strength in Numbers
  4. Return to Cassardis for Deep Trouble (the well), and Guard Duty (escort Madeleine)
  5. Back at the Encampment sleep to start A Rude Awakening. Complete this quest, then accept Off With Its Head from Mercedes, but don't go straight to the Waycastle
  6. Instead return to Cassardis for An Uninvited Guest and Lost and Found (Quina) - do these now.
  7. Travel to the Waycastle to continue and complete Off With Its Head.
  8. At Gran Soren, visit the Pawn Guild for A Matter of Myrmidons, but also start the following side quests : Reaper's Scorn (Austine), A Troublesome Tome (Steffen), Land of Opportunity (Fournival)
  9. Then accept and complete Lure of the Abyss (Barnaby at the Pawn Guild, then the Everfall) - you should now have enough Wakestone shards to complete Reaper's Scorn.
  10. At this point Wyrm Hunt Quests become available - accept all four - they are A Fortress Besieged, Seeking Salvation, The Cypher, and The Watergod's Altar.
    1. Chasing Shadows becomes available (talk to Mason in the slums) -best done as soon as given.
    2. The quest Escort Duty can become available at this point (escort Symone) - keep an eye out for it.
  11. Now is a good time to return to Cassardis again for Deeper Trouble (At the well again. This quest becomes available 7 in-game days after completing Deep Trouble), and Dying of Curiosity (Valmiro). En route the quest The Watergod's Altar can be done, and an event for A Troublesome Tome should also occur.
  12. Now would be a good time to go to the Ruins of Aernst Castle and pick up No Honor Among Thieves. Steffen's quest item can be collected here.
  13. Return to Gran Soren. Complete A Troublesome Tome. Then go to Hillfigure Knoll to complete The Cypher.
  14. The next Wyrm Hunt Quest can either be Seeking Salvation or a Fortress Besieged either journey can take you past The Ancient Quarry east entrance - start the quest Of Merchants and Monsters - though it can wait to be completed. (hard at low level). Complete both Wyrm Hunt quests. (Justice Done should complete during Seeking Salvation)
  15. Return to Gran Soren and accept the invitation via Maximillian. Complete Come to Court (it is crucial to visit Aelinore during this quest. It is also crucial to talk to her 3 times until she takes your goofy hat off, so the quest Duchess in Distress will be activated before Deny Salvation ). On leaving the castle several quests become available from Aldous but they can wait as there as some missable quests.
  16. At Fountain Square the quest Witch Hunt should start.
  17. Return to Cassardis for Farewell, Valmiro, and initiate An Innocent Man. En route there or back visit the Witchwood to complete Witch Hunt.
  18. Return to Gran Soren and the Duke's Demesne - talk to Fedel at night for the quest The Conspirators, and to Mirabelle for Arousing Suspicion. Best complete the second quest in the same night. An Innocent Man can be completed whilst in Gran Soren.
  19. The Conspirators involves a trip to Soulflayer Canyon - visiting the Abbey for some quests en route is a good idea. This trip should take one close to The Ruins of Heavenspeak Fort - visit here for Thick as Thieves (this can be completed now by accepting Betia's request, or later via combat) Some important side quests should be available now (these do not need to be completed right now) :
    1. At The Abbey for Talent in Bloom, after this return to the Abbey for A Parting Gift
    2. Return to the Witchwood for The Dragon's Tongue, and again for Mettle Against Metal (these trips should include routes to fight bandits at Aernst Castle to complete Thick of Thieves if necessary)
    3. Maximillian should have also offered Rise of the Fallen by now, it involves another trip to the Catacombs
    4. Nameless Terror should have been started at Gran Soren's south gate - this requires extensive traveling at night.
    5. Idol quests Supplier's Demand and Idol Worship can be started (visit Madeleine's and Caxton's shops)
  20. Now return to the Duke's Demesne. Complete The Conspirators and accept Griffin's Bane - this should include a trip to Bluemoon Tower, en route visit Windbluff Tower to start Supply and Demands. Once the Griffin is dead return to the Duke's Demesne. Speak to Julien again to further Supply and Demands
  21. Now accept Trial and Tribulations, and take the opportunity to return to Windbluff Tower to complete Supply and Demands (may need to mark the second quest as active to complete it). Once done you can return to the first quest and bring the witness back (optional) en route you can visit Hillfigure Knoll to complete The Dragon's Tongue.
  22. Return to the Duke's Demesne and accept both of the 2nd set of main quests : The Wyrmking's Ring, and Pride Before a Fall. Start by investigating The Wyrmking's Ring - this takes one to the Quarry. Once the quarry part is done return to Gran Soren for the second part -once directions are got (for Bluemoon Tower) both main quests can be completed in a journey to Bluemoon via Windbluff.
  23. Now return to the Duke to complete the main quests and receive another, Honor and Treachery. Bad Business at Madeleine's shop should have become available now, and should be done soon.
  24. Complete Honor and Treachery and accept the quest Reward and Responsibility back at the Demesne.

Caution! Now is the time to complete (almost) all unfinished side quests listed above. (Duchess In Distress should be accepted from Mirabelle in the Demesne if it has not already and should be completed now.)

Quests to finish that may have been forgotten include A Parting Gift, Mettle Against Metal, The Dragon's Tongue, Escort Duty, Nameless Terror, and Search Party

The following quests initiate, and then complete the Post-Game :

  1. Travel to the Greatwall and finish Deny Salvation. If not done already Ophis' Thick as Thieves can be handed in and completed en route at Heavenspeak Fort. (NB again Deny Salvation is point of no return, do all side quests.)
  2. Now the options narrow - do The Final Battle, return to Gran Soren for A Warm Welcome
  3. Into the Everfall for Fathom Deep
  4. Collect the wakestones to start Final Judgement
  5. See it through to the end with The Great Hereafter

Once the final credits roll the trophy should be earned.

Note: You do not have to complete Fathom Deep, Final Judgement, or The Great Hereafter to be eligible for the achievement, as upon completing A Warm Welcome you will be given the achievement. This was only tested on the PC version of the game, and is unknown currently if this is the same for all other versions, though it is likely it will also work the same way


This trophy/achievement can be obtained by completing the below quests:
