Duskmoon Tower is a location in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.


Duskmoon Tower is an area located on Bitterblack Isle, initially accessed from the Garden of Ignominy.

The Duskmoon Tower connects to the Rotunda of Dread on the third floor, the Ward of Regret (leading to the Midnight Helix which contains the Void Key to open Vault of Defiled Truth) and the Vault of Defiled Truth on the first floor.


Barroch makes his initial appearance here. He will remain until the Gazer is defeated for the first time (also in New Game Plus).

Using Rancid Bait Meat in Duskmoon Tower will lure a Cursed Dragon.

Pre-Daimon, the Duskmoon Tower is home to Rabbits, Crows and Deers; a few Snakes and Spiders linger near the Rotunda of Dread entrance on the third floor.

Post-Daimon, either a Firedrake accompanied by Hellhounds or a Thunderwyvern with two Gargoyles will spawn. A Cursed Dragon may also randomly appear.



For chests and their contents see the map and table below

The Moonbeam Gems unlock the eight unique stone doors - their chests contain respectively : 1 Ring of Perseverance, 2 Dragon's Ire, 3 Trophy Jacket, 4 Dragon's Glaze, 5 Adept's Robe, 6 Ring of Desiccation , 7 Adept's Mantle and 8 Dragon's Roost.

Eight different Moonbeam Gems are needed to open all the doors, as the Gems cannot be forged. They can be found throughout Bitterblack Isle - see Moonbeam Gem for details.

Two Macabre Sculptures can be found here.

Cragshadow Morel, Lunanise (x 1), Kingwarish, and Potent Greenwarish grow here, whilst Ore deposits may yield Moonstone, Hunk of Platinum, Gold Ore, Silver Ore, Copper Ore, or Rock.

A variety of items can be gathered, commonly Absorbent Rag, Harspud Sauce, or Harspud Juice as well as Sorrowstone, Rift Crystal, Coin Pouches, Skulls, Angel's Periapt and Blast Arrows. Gather spot 5 may yield a Bitterblack Gear Lv.1.

Miscellaneous items found include a Pickaxe, Ancient Scroll, Empty Flask, and a Harspud Juice.

  • Even if a Cursed Dragon appears, Barroch will stoically stand his ground, readily available for the party to change equipment and skill loadouts, purchase healing items, deposit and withdraw items.
  • The in game music at the Duskmoon Tower is very similar to or influenced by the Sanctus hymn from the Christian liturgy.
