If you don’t feel like searching for it, you can also buy the Howling Hood head armor from a vendor. I will go over all the locations where you can find this particular head armor.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 Howling Hood location

You can acquire the Howling Hood for free by searching for it near the Marshland Settlement area, northwest of Vernworth. You can say it is between Vernworth and Sacred Arbor. Once you get there, you will find a few brick houses there, so head towards the house next to a well.

The door of this house is locked, and there are no entry points on the sides or roof area. Instead, you will need to go around the backside of this house in Dragon’s Dogma 2. There, you will find a small window, and the locked door will be in direct view.

If you are going with the Archer class or running the Magick Archer vocation, then it should be no problem for you to break into this house. You will need to pull out your bow and aim it through the window at the wooden lock on the other side.

One good hit should be sufficient to break the wooden lock. Once you do that, you can enter the house and look around. This way, you will find some useful items, including an Exquisite Roborant. The house also happens to have a cellar and that is where you need to go.

You can climb down the ladder to the basement cellar. Once in the cellar, you will notice a lot of boxes around you. Start destroying them and then looting the items that appear. One of those loot drops will be the Howling Hood hear armor.

If you move to the left side, you can also collect Gold (x12,000) from the cellar area. Another box in the cellar will also drop a Ferrystone for you to collect and fast travel.
