  • The discount effect given by the Badge of Merit, Bronze/Silver/Gold Idol will NOT stack. Only the highest given discount of the best item in your inventory will be used.
    • For example: If the player has all the above discount items in their inventory, the discount will be based on only the Gold Idol's discount of 30%.
  • Idols given for quest turn will only alter the merchant's stock once the player reaches level 35 and 2 days have passed.
    • Only original idols will cause Madeleine and Caxton to upgrade their shops, giving them forgeries won't, however, accomplish the quest properly.
    • Inventory upgrades automatically carry over to subsequent playthroughs.
  • No discount on enhancing items.
  • A Gold Idol Forgery will grant the same discount as the original.
    • It is recommended to make a forgery of the Gold Idol at The Black Cat. This allows the player to retain the discounted bonus and turn in the item for a quest completion.
  • The Gold Idol's discount does not take effect in shops such as Fournival's and the The Black Cat.
  • Items that give discount bonuses do not have to be in the Arisen's inventory. Pawns can carry the item and the Arisen will still receive the discount.
  • It is not the end of the world if the Arisen misses out on the Gold Idol. By the time the Arisen reaches the Everfall or starts acquiring Bitterblack Isle equipment, the extra equipment added to either Caxton's or Madeleine's inventory is outdated and outclassed.


  • In the vanilla version of Dragon's Dogma, if the Gold Idol is forged, the discount for the original copy will be bugged and is nullified. As of Dark Arisen, the bug has been corrected.
