Greater Goblin

Greater Goblin is an Enemy in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.

Information and Stats

As the name implies, greater goblins are larger and more fearsome than their lesser goblin counterpart. They charge into battle, wielding large maces and attacking with a berserk fury that makes them a threat to even the most wary of Arisen.

Similar in appearance to Grimgoblin, and larger, Greater Goblins also behave like Grimgoblins and Hobgoblins but have significantly increased staggering power and health points.

Greater Goblin stomp (or "How NOT to Perfect block")

When knocked down, a group of Greater Goblins can literally stomp a character to death. Unless rescued by pawns or avoiding the stomps with Instant Reset, the Greater Goblin stomp is often inescapable.

  • Weak against Lightning
  • Weak to physical attacks.(verify)
  • Vulnerable to Torpor, and Tarred,
  • Resistant to  Blind.
  • Beware the Greater Goblins' surprisingly powerful stomp attack. If knocked down, the Arisen can quickly be overwhelmed by multiple Greater Goblins joining in the stomp-fest.
    • Instant Reset can be used to quickly recover from a Greater Goblin knockdown 
  • Avoid using attacks that leave the Arisen vulnerable, including running out of stamina.
