The Catacombs is a location in Dragon's Dogma.


An ancient burial chamber of considerable size. Home to the Undead of all kinds and the meeting place of Salvation.

The Catacombs has multiple exits, but the main entrance is to the north of Deos Hills. Two other entrances to the Catacombs exist, but are initially blocked - these are under the large bridge over the river near Gran Soren, and an entrance close to one of the broken former fortifications in the Estan Plains outside Gran Soren.

Inhabitants include many Undead including warriors and the stout kind, phantoms, Skeletons including Skeleton Knights and Skeleton Mages, and a solitary Ogre

During the quest A Parting Gift a Specter may be encountered, and the Dark Arisen quest An Unseen Rival III, will see two Living Armors in the tombs.
