Dragon’s Dogma Pawns Guide


In many RPG games, to face the seemingly endless challenges, players usually have partners in different forms to play the supportive role. In Dragon’s Dogma, the developer has introduced the concept of Pawns.

Pawns are the creatures from some other world and the thing I like the most about them is that they lack any emotions or willpower. They are bound to follow orders. They appear humanly, and the glowing scar on the face corresponds to the particular Arisen.

Now the question is, how one can recruit these creatures? There are different ways like you can spend some rift crystal points to recruit them.

You may also find some Pawns for free. One other way to bring them into your world is through Rift Stones, which are scattered throughout the towns. You may want to know following things about these strange creatures:

The Pawn you have been able to bond with will stay at your side and will fight with you in the battles. They really come in handy during boss fights.

You can customize your Pawn and improve its weapons and skills, which are also quite useful.

You can alter the Main Pawn’s (by learning through Rift Stones) AI at the Pawn Guild by using the Knowledge Chair through some consultation questions.

The Pawns aren’t the invincible creatures, and they can die. So if you don’t want the Pawn to get back to its world again, try to revive them as soon as possible. Other players can use your Pawn online, but you will be awarded with some rift crystals as a rent may be?

If you know anything else about the behavior of these Pawns, you can let us know in the comments below. For more help on Dragon’s Dogma, read our Crafting, Vocations and Augments Guide.
