Abyssal Trance is a Dark based skill available in Dragon's Dogma.


"An advanced form of Dark Enchanter that extends and amplifies the enchantment, as well as the recipient's magick."


After a medium-length incantation, the weapons of allies within a few meters of the knight are enchanted with the dark element, as well as raising the recipient's Magick.


  • For general details of weapon enchantment spells see weapon enchantment.
  • An advanced version of Dark Enchanter.
  • In Dark Arisen, it becomes Desecration Invocation with a suitable Shield Enchanter's Ring or Band equipped.
  • The incantation time of the Enchanter and Trance abilities is longer than the Boon/Affinity spells and the effect is both more powerful and shorter in duration, however having all four party members' weapons enchanted, accounts for a great deal of fast damage, and better assurance of useful debilitations. It also ensures the Mystic Knight has the element they need to modify spells like Ruinous Sigil and Great Cannon.
  • Use the 'Come!' command to make sure all pawns congregate nearby to receive the effect.
  • Releasing this skill prior to fully charging the second bar casts Dark Enchanter, allowing the Arisen to use either skill as the situation demands.
