Honor and Treachery is a quest available in Dragon's Dogma.

Overview

"A messenger has come to Aldous bearing grim news. Head for the Mountain Waycastle at once."

A message to travel to the The Mountain Waycastle proves to be a ruse, allowing an attack on the city by Salvation using a fierce Cockatrice - the Arisen must return in haste and defeat or drive off this beast.

Honor and Treachery (quest walkthrough)

Walkthrough

Honor and Treachery becomes available once the quests Pride Before a Fall and The Wyrmking's Ring have been completed.

Speak to Aldous at the Duke's Demesne to initiate the quest - whilst in converstation a messenger arrives with urgent news - requesting the Arisen's attention at The Mountain Waycastle as soon as possible.

Travel to the Waycastle

Head to The Mountain Waycastle (via the Moonsbit Pass) where Ser Ravenn relays a message that Gran Soren is under attack and that the Arisen must return immediately.

Return to Gran Soren

Walking back to Gran Soren will reveal a Cockatrice attacking the city - a Ferrystone can also be used to quickly return to the city.

The southern gate will be found sealed, so head directly to the northern gate. Before entering through the northern gate, speak with the guard Ser Laurent and he will bestow a Potent Greenwarish and Secret Softeners.

Defeat the Cockatrice

Fight the Cockatrice !

The Cockatrice is on a rampage in the Field, turning guards and civilians into stone with its Petrification breath.

Most civilians will run for safety, while a few guards will man the gates preventing any ingress to other parts of the city. Ser Tolth, a soldier turned Salvation member is also in the fields, rejoicing in the success of Salvation's plan.

Try to protect the three sets of crates marked with the Duke's Banner on the road leading to the north gate - lure the Cockatrice away from the crates, if possible.

The Cockatrice will eventually flee, which is most likely to happen when the member of Salvation dies in the middle of the battle - unless it is killed outright.

Report Back to Aldous

Walk back towards the Passage Gate stairs to the Noble Quarter and speak with Ser Camillus. He will automatically lead the Arisen to Aldous.

The party will receive more or less experience depending on whether they were able to drive off the Cockatrice before any of the Duke's cargo was destroyed.

Upon completing this quest, the next main story quest Reward and Responsibility becomes available.

Preparations

Notes

  • Experience rewarded is reduced if the Arisen fails to protect everyone in the area.
  • Aldous mentions that the Arisen will be unable to return to Gran Soren for some time after accepting the next quest. This is not the case, due to intervening events.
  • (Bugs) It is possible to inflict burning etc. on the Cockatrice and it will die after flying out of reach and over the city walls.(verify) Experience for the kill will be rewarded, but its corpse will obviously be unable to loot. Afterwards graphic glitches may appear.
