Gargoyle 02

Gargoyle is an Enemy in Dragon's Dogma.


Overview

Gargoyles are a dangerous species of grey, winged creatures rarely found in Gransys during Post-Game. Their bodies are hard as stone and most resistant to physical attacks.

They attack by grabbing and stabbing their prey with their tail, with the chance to cause Petrification which leads to death if not immediately treated.

2 Gargoyles spawn just outside of Gran Soren's south gate every 10 days.

  • Gargoyles are weak to both Lightning and Holy.
  • Strong against Dark based spells. High Maelstrom will inflict limited damage.
  • Use a ranged attack to knock one out of the sky.
  • Blunt weapons seem to be the most effective physical means of inflicting damage.
  • Once grounded, they can be held down.
  • Be very careful when fighting multiple Gargoyles at once, since they can work in tandem and might effectively juggle anyone they strike if they attack one after the other, knocking the unfortunate Arisen or pawn up a little bit higher.
