Cloaked Saurian Sage (Chamber of Hesitation)

Saurian Sage is a Enemy in Dragon's Dogma.


Saurian Sages are white Saurians with the ability to cast magic both to heal themselves and any Saurian allies, as well as being able to cast magic attacks.

They carry a spear used for both casting magic as well as physical attacks.

They are fond of the cloak and counter tactics Sulfur Saurians employ, often using their white skin to camouflage themselves into the terrain around them., and like all Saurians will rest attached to walls, dropping from above in ambush if approached.

Saurian Sages in the Chamber of Hesitation

10 Saurian Sages spawn in the Chamber of Hesitation every 5 days.

Additionally, Saurian Sages are considerably more durable than their brethren, even when casting spells they have great resistance to stagger.

Their spit attack drenches an opponent, extinguishes lanterns and increases the damage taken from their subsequent spells.

They are weak to Dark-element attacks and resistant to Holy.


Attack Type Description

Tail Whip Phys Whacks targets attacking its tail. Causes knock back.
Spit Mag/Status Spits a blob of saliva at a target. Causes instant drenching.

Jumping Spear Phys Leaps at a target and stabs them with the spear. Knocks the target away and down.
Hit and Run Bite Phys When its tail is removed it will slither up to a target, bite them in the legs and then run away.
Cloak Spec Saurian Sages are able to cloak for ambush attacks or regular attacks and are always cloaked when on the ground. They will however lift the cloak to cast spells.
Guard Spec Holds up its spear in a defensive stance that blocks all frontal and side attacks. The Tail is not protected if flanked, and its guard may be broken by strong attacks.

  • Like all Saurians, cutting off the tail will dramatically reduce its Defense and the offenses its AI selects.

    Sorcerer vs a Frostwyrm and 5 Saurian Sages in the Black Abbey

    A Sorcerer demonstrating Silence effectiveness with a Keen Dragon's Wit Golden archistaff. Hard mode demonstration with no buffs, curatives or Wakestones used.

  • Strong against Holy enchanted weapons and spells.
  • Weak against Dark enchanted weapons such as the Kunai daggers, and Dark elemental spells like High Maelstrom and High Grapnel.
  • Vulnerable to Silence. Use Golden weapons to inflict Silence on spellcasters and render them impotent. The higher the enhancement of a Golden weapon, the higher chance it will inflict Silence with each strike.
  • Vulnerable to Torpor and Poison. Use a Rusted weapon to inflict both debilitations simultaneously. The higher the enhancement of a Rusted weapon, the higher chance it will debilitate with each strike.

Enemy specific:

  • Saurian Strategy Vol. 2 Susceptible to Silence.
  • Weak to Dark (Pawn quote : Darkness works well.)
  • May be necessary to slay the Saurian Sage who casts Anodyne on its allies first (Pawn quote: Slay the healer first, heard in Bitterblack Isle encountered post-Daimon)

In addition to witnessing these techniques, it is necessary for Pawns to participate in killing 100 Saurian Sages either with their own Arisen or while travelling with others.
