5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive guide, good reference, May 28, 2012
By 
This review is from: Dragon's Dogma Signature Series Guide (Paperback)
This review is for the strategy guide BOOK for Dragon's Dogma, not the actual game (loved the game, by the way).

I'm very satisfied with this purchase, as I use the guide for reference quite frequently. Unfortunately, there is quite a lot about the pawn system that is not explained in-game or in the manual that comes inside the cover. Details on the tendency types, how to change pawn behavior, class rank/skill matches, etc. weren't really explained elsewhere. Also, the large and detailed map of Grand Soren is good.

The guide also lists stats for all weapons, armor, creatures, and details on quests. I've tried to avoid the quest section, since I wanted to avoid spoilers...but what I have seen of the quest explanation has been pretty solid.

My biggest complaint about this guide is that the quest/area sections seem to be in alphabetically order rather than listed in order of when you encounter them in the story. For those avoiding spoilers, it makes it scary browsing through that portion of the guide.

I'm curious does it give an explanation about mixing potions and stuff?

Yeah, it has a few pages that list all of the item recipes. Nothing too complex; just the item created and what ingredients are needed. I think that section is 3-4 pages long.

Yeah man, I think it lists rewards for the quests (although I don't have the guide in front of me right now). At the very least, the guide does have a comprehensive list of all the items in the game along with stat and acquisition details.
