Arisen! This DLC is lame. Arisen?
Only just out of the gate itself, Dragon’s Dogma is already getting a few pieces of DLC. Among others that will net you some gear is the From a Different Sky series that promises a new set of quests each week for eight weeks. With two entries in this series already available we’re able to see this DLC for what it really is. Not much of anything.
What You Get
Do you all remember that weird job board in the basement of the Pawn Guild in Grand Soren? That one that says it was for DLC only? Well now you’ll get a chance to use it, though you’re likely to be disappointed. Each week, when you purchase a part of From a Different Sky, you’ll have ten missions show up on this board. But hold on, you’ll only be able to grab six at a time since, for whatever reason, that’s all the quests a board can handle at one time.
After you take the first six quests you’ll be sent off, around the world, to find a medallion. These medallions aren’t guarded by a boss or anything, but they may be in hard to reach places. After you pick up each one you’ll get a pile of experience and Rift Crystals. These medallions can also be sold for around five thousand gold as well, but that’s all they’re good for. There isn’t any story involved, just a whole lot of walking and fetching.
If you ask me, From a Different Sky is just a way for Capcom to dress up the fact that you’re buying gold, experience and Rift Crystals as that’s essentially what these quests are. If that’s what you’re looking for, by all means buy these ‘quest’ packs, but if you were looking for additional story, battles or real content then I suggest you move along. Capcom is mum on whether or not collecting all eighty medallions will get you anything, but even still, you would have to buy all eight of these DLC packs to get it so I can’t recommend that.
