Dire Arrow is a skill available in Dragon's Dogma.


"Focuses the user's gathered strength into a single, devastating shot that grows in power as it is charged."


  • Upgrades to Deathly Arrow.
  • You are unable to move while charging this ability.
  • Has a high knockdown chance.
  • This ability differs somewhat from other charged abilities in that timing the shot is integral: like other charged abilities, one bar will fill on the skill HUD, but if the button is pressed as soon as the bar fills (a "whoosh" sound will play and the Arisen will flash white), the arrow will loose in slow-motion and the arrow will do significantly more damage and have higher knockback power. If this is not done, the arrow will simply do slightly more than normal damage.
  • The warrior skill Savage Lash also changes strength and power if the release is well timed.
