Is Dark Arisen supposed to be a seperate Dragon's Dogma expansion/game or is it in sense like what Fallout did and its all DLC in one package and can be purchased as such at retail with DLC option for existing Dogma owners?

According to what I have read, it is an expansion that also contains the original game.

I can't wait, this was my favorite game of 2012.

buy it dude. lil advice to make the game better. adjust the contrast where you cant see good in the dark without a lantern. game is more intense like that. i like a challenge and the game tested me hard at night time or in a dungeon. its a completely different game when you adjust it.

Question for you, how the f*ck do you tell if an enemy is too strong for you before you fight them. I like the game, but even after just starting out every bandit group I encounter has (at least) 1 member who can kill me or my pawns in one or two attacks.

I've gone away, ranked up a bit including gear and yet again, still die just as quickly and easily without any kind of warning its about to happen.

@caseh: You can't really tell if they are stronger than you from a look. You just have to try and fight them and see for yourself. That said, pay attention to where you are in relation to the main story quest. Enemies around Cassardis and Gran Soren are easy (with the odd Cyclops or Griffin suddenly appearing out of nowhere) it's venturing out beyond those areas where it gets difficult. Also, if you hire a pawn with decent enemy and location experience, they can tell you if you're strong enough for the area. It also boils down to the kind of attacks you use based on the kind of fighter you want to be.

My suggestion to you is learn the builds, and focus on the stat bonuses that each Vocation gives on level ups. Here's a little help in that area.

Do you want to be a fast and hard hitting fighter? Then you might want to focus on being an assassin which has the highest strength stat. It's also the most broken and overpowered vocation in the game.

Do you want to be a tank that takes the hits and can give them back? Fighter has the highest physical defense stat, or warrior has the Hyper Armor and Highest HP stat.

Do you want to be a balance of fighter and healer? Then either Mage or Mystic Knight is for your. Mystic Knight is the second most broken vocation and generally the most popular because, unlike the Assassin, it has plenty of AoE attacks that are devastating and work in conjunction with weapon enchants.

Do you want nothing but raw magical power from a distance? Sorcerer is for you. It has the highest magic attack and magic defense gains.

Do you want to fight from a distance? Sniping enemies before they even see you? Then you want the Ranger class. Which also has the highest stamina gains.

There's also the Magick Archer class which is the only class with a homing feature in their attacks, can perform some of the Mystic Knight's sigil attacks on any surface rather than on the ground immediately below them, but they are useless against enemies with high magic defense or total magic immunity like Golems.
