Proving Grounds is a location in Dragon's Dogma.


The Proving Grounds is an area accessed from and beyond the Frontier Caverns. The gate leading to the proving grounds chamber is closed and locked, until the notice board quest Put the Eye Out is obtained. An chest containing antechamber is also locked behind a large gate until the quest A Challenge is accepted.

As in the Frontier Caverns; a constant in the chamber is Goblins, which will accompany the bosses in the area. Depending on quests relating to the chamber there may be a different large enemy found here, though the usual foe is an armored Cyclops. During the post-game a Hydra takes up residence in the chamber. During heated battles goblin reinforcements may drop down into the arena from an upper gallery.
