The Griffin is a massive creature that has the head, talons and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion. Like its counterpart in Dragon's Dogma, it is weak to Flame attacks. It is classifed as a Huge enemy, so both ground and aerial attacks will injure it. However, it is capable of flight; when airborne, only aerial attacks will have any effect.
Griffins also possess a deadly attack where they can fly high up into the sky and dive into the party; this diving attack inflicts a tremendous amount of damage and is capable of killing the party in one blow. Arisen are advised to have at least one Shield-carrying pawn in their party when facing these creatures in order to block this devastating attack.
