Grimgoblin

Grimgoblin is an Enemy in Dragon's Dogma.

Overview

Grimgoblins are a much stronger and more aggressive version of the regular Goblin and Hobgoblin. They can be found throughout Gransys during Post-Game and also on Bitterblack Isle.

They come in two different variations: The smaller Grimgoblins fight nearly naked, save for a covering of blood splatters and some skull charms, the larger Hobgoblin sized Grimgoblins are better armored and often wear a helmet made of an animal skull; their skin has a sickly grey colour. Both are better prepared for combat than their lesser counterparts - they often carry serrated swords similar in design to the Cassardi Flamberge. They are also more resistant to staggering allowing them to ignore attacks to hit their foes.

Grimgoblins are not to be taken lightly and will abuse the situation, such as stomping on foes that are knocked down. They have been known to work in teams and will try to keep their foes from getting up.

Grimgoblins are vulnerable to Torpor and Tarred, but not to Blind; they are weak to Ice.

Attacks

Attack Type Description
Jump Attack Phys Leaps towards a target and smacks them in the face with their weapon, which causes knock down.
Stab Phys Similar to the Fighter's Burst Strike skill, only they don't travel as fast and will stab at their target from a distance.
Stomp Dance Phys Jumps on a downed target and proceeds to stomp on them which deals a significant amount of damage. Multiple Grimgoblins can join in on this attack to increase the damage. The victim can be stunlocked by this.
Throw Item Phys/Status Throws various items such as Dragon's Spit, Poison Flasks, Oil Flasks, Slumberstones and Rocks at the party. See also § Thrown items.
Horn Blow Spec Blows a horn to alert other Grimgoblins to the Arisen's presence.
Shoulder Rush Phys Charges at a target with its shoulder. Despite its size it does hefty damage and knocks down, often followed by its stomping attack.
Shield Bash Phys Grimgoblins equipped with a shield can use the Fighter's shield bash skill to break the target's guard and deal damage.

Thrown items

Grimgoblins have access to different thrown items than other Goblins:

Astracite shards

Grimgoblins throw an object that may cause thundershock - on contact or miss this produces an electrical discharge on impact - it seems likely that this has some connection to the Astracite Shard sometimes obtained from dead Grimgoblins (Astracite is usually obtained from Phantasms).

Slumberstones

On occasion, pawns fighting Grimgoblins will exclaim "Beware! They ready a slumberstone!" - it is not known exactly what a slumberstone is or where it originates from.

For full information, refer to the Bestiary page or the according section on the Goblin page. Enemy specific:

In addition to witnessing these techniques, it is necessary for Pawns to participate in killing 250 - 285 Grimgoblins either with their own Arisen or while traveling with others.

Pawn Chatter

"Grimgoblin!"
"You must strike hard to make a grimgoblin flinch."
"Do not let their size deceive you!"

Notes

  • If knocked down, Instant Reset will quickly return the Arisen to their feet, otherwise call help.
