How to Pass Time in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Relatively early on, you’ll learn that nighttime is far more dangerous in Dragon’s Dogma 2 than daytime. Now, day is plenty dangerous. There are seemingly hordes of goblins roaming the countryside, Saurians around each corner, and bandits who want your gold. It’s sometimes overwhelming. But the night is usually worse. That’s why you should learn to pass time in Dragon’s Dogma 2!

How to Pass Time in Dragon’s Dogma 2

You can pass time in Dragon’s Dogma 2 in a number of ways, including:

  • Sitting at one of the seats with the red rug over the bench.
  • While riding in an oxcart, you may nod off for a bit.
  • Sleeping in a bed in your home in Vernworth.
  • Waiting until day/night at a campsite.

There does not appear to be any penalty or cost for waiting, depending on where or what you use. If you sleep on the back of an oxcart, for instance, you’ll have to pay the 100 gold fee to ride the transport. At a campsite, you must use a Camping Kit to place down your tent. Otherwise, waiting and passing time in the game is a free mechanic that’s sometimes necessary.

Why You Should Pass Time in Dragon’s Dogma 2

You should pass time when traveling at night proves too challenging. If you’re finding it difficult to navigate the dirt paths in the dark, even with your hip lantern lit, find a campsite or bench and wait until morning.

There’s no shame in waiting until daylight to travel. For many of my adventurers in Dragon’s Dogma 2, I found myself favoring the daylight hours. It wasn’t because nighttime terrified me, no, but because the world itself is gorgeous, and I wanted to see more of it in the light.
