Come to Court is a quest available in Dragon's Dogma.


"Your feats in the Wyrm Hunt have earned you an audience with Duke Edmun himself. Perhaps he will offer missions of greater merit."

Come to Court becomes available after completing two or more Wyrm Hunt Quests. Speak with Ser Maximilian and agree to "Hear the duke's directive" to begin the quest.

To complete the quest enter the Duke's Demesne and attend the Duke's audience.

Choosing to meet with the Duke means abandoning any uncompleted Wyrm Hunt quests - ensure outstanding quests and tasks have been completed before accepting. Maximillian will retrieve the License, and access to the Demense will be granted.

Enter the Demense to progress the story.

Visit the Duke

Starting this quest makes the Duke's Demesne accessible for the first time. Pawns are not allowed inside the castle by order of the Duke. Feel free to explore the castle grounds and collect loot. As in the rest of Gran Soren any illegal or antisocial behaviour will result in arrest.

Entering the castle's main keep through the front door to meet with the duke - Feste the jester will be waiting and will usher the Arisen into the main chamber.

Once inside the Audience Chamber the Arisen will be received by the Duke, his royal guards, and guests, including Mercedes and Julien. The duke will knight the Arisen, afterwhich they are free to leave, explore further, or speak to the guests.

The knights in the chamber are Ser Shakil, Ser Vitlay, Ser Tascan, Ser Brigante, Ser Viceroth, Ser Chandra, Ser Gammon, Ser Falken, and Ser Covan.

See to the Royal Orders

On exiting the castle keep by the main door observe a princess in the gardens to the right - this is Aelinore. Speak to her to begin her quest line - this is a one off opportunity. Speaking to Aelinore completes the Come Courting achievement trophy.

On leaving the Demense the Arisen will be accosted by Aldous, the Duke's chamberlain, who later gives the Royal Orders Quests. On returning to the castle, speak with him to learn what quests the Duke would have you do.

After this scene, Aelinore will have left the garden, and the opportunity to speak to her lost.

Quest Successful

Leave the Desmense to complete Come to Court.


Several quests will end uncompleted on starting Come to Court - these include:

The Dragonforged offers an escort quest, provided your affinity with him is high enough, only while this quest is active. It will disappear as soon as Come to Court is completed.
