Dragon's Dogma is an open world Japanese RPG that is filled with adventures and quests. It takes place in the land of Gransys, a land that needs a hero called the Arisen; a hero who's capable of rising up to defeat the Dragon and to make the land safe again from the dark time and pledges. Along the way, you'll experience the unique combat as you fully explore the open world, while slaying vicious beasts and creatures on your quest to slay the Dragon.
All the trophies in this game are fairly easy and straight forward; however, they will require time to obtain. Capcom wants the players to experience the riches and mysterious beasts of the world. This means you'll be spending time questing, traveling, gearing up, making gold, and killing creatures after creatures.
Step 1: Complete the adventure the first time
This is the first step in obtaining your platinum. The first thing you'll need to do is complete the prologue. Once the prologue is completed you'll unlock the story related trophy It Begins
as you're taken to the character creation screen. Have fun in making your hero and do take note that gender really won't have a major impact on you. The only difference is males can carry more weight and are slightly stronger than a female and females can be faster than a male with slightly quicker stamina regain. These two things won't make a difference in your gameplay at all since you'll level up and making this difference not noticeable. However, some creatures in the game will become frenzy towards a female character making the creature even stronger to kill (Goblins and Ogres etc). Still, this will not be an issue as leveling and gearing up removes this issue overtime.
After creating your character which you'll be using for the remainder of the entire game, you'll begin your first playthrough primarily focusing on the main story quests. This will enable you to obtain almost all the story related trophies, but while playing through the story you'll be given certain choices. These choices will give you the option to either fight the ultimate fight of your life or to either walk away like a coward. These two things are really considered story related and walking away will act as a death. In other words, we advise that you always walk away from these major battles when given the option to. That way, you'll get the trophies related to walking away out of the way first because you'll be given the option to 'Retry' and fight the boss after the credits finished rolling.
Next thing that you'll need to keep in mind is the exploration trophies. You'll need to discover over 150 different locations for the The Explorer
trophy. Don't worry about discovering all 150 on your first playthrough, as most of the locations are not accessible until your post game or either NG+. It's something that you'll unlock over time, so keep playing through the main story and quests while leveling and getting geared up. When on the world map, questing in dungeons, visiting/shopping in cities be sure to explore every single inch you can.
Thirdly, are the weapons and armor along with gold and quests. These things are major elements to your long term goal of obtaining the platinum. When it comes to weapons/armor try to gear up yourself first based on your current vocation. Then slowly gear up your pawn whenever you get the gold to gear them up. Usually it's best to give them the leftover equipment that your character doesn't need anymore; however, it might not be the case all the time depending on your vocations. Then there's the gold, which will be an issue on your character on the first few couple of hours. You'll need to take responsibility in managing your gold and obtaining/farming gold. When in need of quick gold you'll need to do some side quests from the Notice Boards etc. Another option is to always sell the low level weapons/armor that is no longer needed. Farming gold isn't necessary on your first playthrough, but if you got to do it then do it. We aren't referring to farming gold methods for the 10,000,000G trophy, which is a trophy you should be ignoring at the moment. There are plenty of methods to get small amounts of gold that will become natural to you as you play.
Finally, attempt to do as many notice board quests you possibly can. This will eliminate the time needed towards your NG+ playthrough making it significantly shorter. In other words, attempt to unlock the The Laborer
trophy for completing 50 notice board quests on this playthrough and save The Hero
