Dragon Quest Builders 2 Beginners Guide

In our Beginners Tips and Tricks Guide for Dragon Quest Builders 2, we have outlined some basic tips related to the game’s most important features and mechanics. By the end of our guide, you will definitely have a better understanding of some in-game mechanics like Gratitude, Farming, and such.

Multiplayer Mode

Dragon Quest Builder 2 has a Multiplayer Mode which allows the player to team up with at least three more players. First, you need to play the game and go along in the story. After a while, you will be able to unlock the Multiplayer Mode.

The feature will allow the teaming up to happen on the Isle of Awakening and then you can build houses and farms for the people of the town.

You can also participate in fights with your friends but doing all this will not be progressing in the story, as that will only happen when you play in the story as a single player.

Malroth the Companion

Dragon Quest Builders 2 doesn’t make you play alone in the game. In fact, this time you have a companion named Malroth with you.

Malroth is the friend you are going to take part with you in your battles while you are on a hunt for crafting items and some obstacles come in your way.

He also has weapons that are really powerful and only he has the ability to possess these features. He is not immortal but if he goes down, you can recharge him or put him to bed so he can get recharged and then you can continue with your game.

Hunger Meter

The game features a Hunger Meter that is on you and the meter has a range.

Although the weapons that you have are non-breakable if your Hunger Meter goes down, then even if you will be able to use your sword, it won’t do enough damage to the enemies that it was doing previously.

Therefore, when you know that you will be entering a fight, it is important that you eat something and keep your Hunger Meter full so you can take part in the fights with full stamina and defeat your enemies with ease.


In order for you to craft items and build a civilization, you need to collect Gratitude. Gratitude is an important source in the game and you collect it using different methods in the game.

There are basically two ways that allow you to collect Gratitude which is by cooking and by building rooms for the citizens.

For cooking, you first need to farm the ingredients and then put the cooked food in the chests for the NPCs to find and eat and then reward you with Gratitude.

Constructing a room will award you with Gratitude but the Gratitude received increases as you upgrade the room and more Gratitude is earned on assigning the room to an NPC. Gratitude also depends on the size of the room that you construct.


For farming, you require a good fertile and green land that you get by using Worm Food. Worm Food is availed when you go and *hunt the Grass Seeds*.

Grass Seeds are found in the Furrowfield Bog when you defeat Muddy Hands who are you enemies which attack you in groups.

After that, you go and find the Goblin Archer in the west and sow five Grass Seeds around him that earns you Worm Food which makes the land meadow.

You can then put a scarecrow on the land and interact with it. Choose a crop that you have grown and had the villagers grow the crops for you.

Keep Moving Camera

In Dragon Quest Builders 2, you should keep moving your camera using the right analog stick so that wherever you are, you can have the perfect view of whatever activity you are doing.

Use the Map for Surrounding Idea

In Dragon Quest Builders 2, you can use the touchpad to open the map. The map will provide a bird’s eye of your surroundings, which will help you in your activities. The map will also help you spot enemies near you.

Create Shortcuts

You can pave your own paths and create shortcuts in Dragon Quest Builder 2 which will help you cut down time to reach other places. You can use different building blocks to create these paths and shortcuts to reach places of different heights quicker.

Fall Damage

In DQB 2, Fall damage does not kill you. However, it will drop you down to 1HP so make sure that if you fall down from heights, heal quickly so that you can stay safe if there are enemies nearby.

Sleep when out Exploring

In Dragon Quest Builder 2, when you are out exploring, your HP will get drained. If you are far away from home, it may get dangerous on low HP. So always take a bed with you when out exploring so whenever your HP drains to a critical point, you can take a small nap to replenish it.

Sleeping at night time will also change the time to morning of the day.

Store Away extra Materials and Items

In Dragon Quest Builder 2, you will gain a lot of materials and items while exploring the vast open world. Many of these items have specific uses and you will not need them all the time.

It is better to store away all the unrequired materials and items in your bag and the community chest. The bag unlocks from the Furrowfield Farm.

Break Building Structures

In Dragon Quest Builder 2, the structures you build are in no way permanent. If you made a mistake or want to change a building or structure, you can simply use your hammer to break the old parts and make your changes.

Breaking buildings will also return most of the materials used in its construction so you won’t be in a big loss even if you destroy huge structures.
